Watch out for those damn Somali Pirates!!! (Must-see video)

Here’s a video that everyone should see.  Its clear that the international media has a bent towards the US and Europe, and the recent explosion of the dastardly Somali pirates in the news is no break from the norm.

Check out this video interview of K’naan, a Somalian hip hop artist (his album the dusty foot philosopher is dope), as he sheds a little clarity on the larger situation @ hand.

Neither BFO–nor does he–condone the actions of the pirates.  However, the issues he brings up merit some further inspection: dumping of Nuclear waste in Somali waters, illegal fishing and other abuses.

Definitely a fresh twist on what the news is bringing you nowadays.

    One man’s freedom fighter…
    is another man’s terrorist.

    One man’s blind support for the arguments of national security…
    is another man’s radical rationale for authoritarian fascism.

    One man’s promise to “support and defend the Constitution….”
    is another man’s forgotten moral imperative.

    WHY IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ADOPTING AND SUPPORTING ALL THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION’S POLICIES OF INTERNATIONAL MILITARY OCCUPATION AND AGGRESSION???!!!

    WHY IS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION FAILING TO IMPLEMENT A REPEAL OF THE MILITARY COMMISSION’S ACT, THE PATRIOT ACT, AND ACTIVELY PURSUING AN IMMEDIATE END TO THE ILLEGAL PRACTICE OF UNWARRANTED ELECTRONIC SURVEILLANCE OF AMERICAN CIVILIANS???!!!

    IS THERE ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE WHO OBSERVES ANOTHER COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF CO-OPTED BY THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL-INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY???!!!

    HOPE IN ONE HAND…BUT KEEP THE OTHER WELL-ARMED!
