The international community and those that have no credibility and corrupt TFG & Puntland Governments, and who indeed are living on the loots and receving sizeabkle shares from the Pirates, are projecting counter offensive efforts on international waters piracy.

There is no secret that economic piracy is actively taking place under the watch of the international community.

My question is:
What action the international community, specially the UN Security Council, are prepared to take to stop their nationalities and other nations who are actively and knowingly engaged in economic piracy on the coasts of Somalia and the frequent dumping of chemical wastes on the EEZ of Somalia?

While I do not condone piracy of any form, the international community is assured, Until the economic piracy is tackled, piracy will continue as citizens of Somalia will host them, as they consider it a legitimate retaliation of the world's conspiracy to rob Somalia of its resources.

Well done. Associated Press is confirming an article it wrote 2 years ago stating that Puntland has air assets, as shown in the video by Fox News.

3 to 6 helicopters. Very nice.
