Default You are being lied to about pirates

You are being lied to about pirates
http://www.infowars.com/you-are-bein...about-pirates/
excerpts:
Who imagined that in 2009, the world’s governments would be declaring a new War on Pirates? As you read this, the British Royal Navy - backed by the ships of more than two dozen nations, from the U.S. to China - is sailing into Somalian waters to take on men we still picture as parrot-on-the-shoulder pantomime villains. They will soon be fighting Somalian ships and even chasing the pirates onto land, into one of the most broken countries on earth.




In the “golden age of piracy” — from 1650 to 1730 — the idea of the pirate as the senseless, savage thief that lingers today was created by the British government in a great propaganda heave.

But behind the arrr-me-hearties oddness of this tale, there is an untold scandal. The people our governments are labeling as “one of the great menaces of our times” have an extraordinary story to tell - and some justice on their side.

Pirates have never been quite who we think they are. In the “golden age of piracy” - from 1650 to 1730 - the idea of the pirate as the senseless, savage thief that lingers today was created by the British government in a great propaganda heave. Many ordinary people believed it was false: Pirates were often rescued from the gallows by supportive crowds. Why? What did they see that we can’t?

Pirates were the first people to rebel against this world. They mutinied against their tyrannical captains - and created a different way of working on the seas. Once they had a ship, the pirates elected their captains, and made all their decisions collectively. They shared their bounty out in what Rediker calls “one of the most egalitarian plans for the disposition of resources to be found anywhere in the 18th century.”

They even took in escaped African slaves and lived with them as equals. The pirates showed “quite clearly - and subversively - that ships did not have to be run in the brutal and oppressive ways of the merchant service and the Royal navy.” This is why they were popular, despite being unproductive thieves.

Hard to believe that the main stream media isn't telling us the whole truth of what is going on in Somalia.

Btw, don't think I want to eat the fish/lobsters that they are stealing out of the Somalian waters. I might glow in the dark!

Its all myth, the Argo ship of the north is the pi rates ship in the heavens comming as a thief in the night, to recover the treasure of truth.

This is done by calming the temptess clypso, the archetype of the sacred feminine. Jesus said peace be still. Its all myth. the Pirate wears one patch, because he has gone beyond duality

Worth noting that the British Empire's early financing in the 16th century was done through piracy...they knew that the Spanish has found vast quantities of gold in Peru and Mexico, whereas the english had been unsuccessful in visits to places like Canada, Guiana, Gambia, Virginia....so the answer was simply to rob the spanish, which is how Drake had operated in the 1570's in the Carribean and Panama..in the end Queen Elizabeth 1 sanctioned the raids on the spanish, led by Raleigh, and between 1585 and 1604, between 100 and 200 vessels a year, privately manned, set off to harass spanish vessels and reaped vast wealth from this enterprise..and thus began the empire that spanned the globe...

Aye Matey,

History repeating itself, now it's rob the 'Americans' or rob the 'English', take all their gold and their wealth.

Is that called 'Imperial' Piracy?

The 'real' pirates are holding us captive already.

I'm keeping one eye on the horizon for the 'new' inland pirate prince, like a Robin Hood!

Who do you think best fits that description?

PAUL Always defending our rights and fighting the good fight!



LOOKOUT! These three pirates are armed and cunning!

In the absence of a strong government and centralized law enforcement, trawlers from Spain, France and Portugal arrived in search of its abundant tuna, dolphin fish and shrimp...

The force of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami pulled up dozens of toxic-waste containers, leaving a lethal trail along the Somali coast. A UN report found as a result many residents suffered "acute respiratory infections, heavy coughing, bleeding gums and mouth, abdominal haemorrhages, unusual skin rashes, and even death."

Two years later, a team of specialists discovered nine toxic waste sites along 700 km of coastline in southern Somalia.

"Somalia has been used as a dumping ground for hazardous waste starting in the early 1990s, and continuing through the civil war there," Nick Nuttall of the UN's Environment Program told the television channel Al-Jazeera, echoing similar findings from other reports.

"And the waste is many different kinds. There is uranium radioactive waste. There is lead, and heavy metals like cadmium and mercury. There is also industrial waste, and there are hospital wastes, chemical wastes - you name it."

The waste came from European companies, which paid shady intermediaries as little as $2.50 a tonne to dispose of it, compared with about $1,000 a tonne in Europe.

Jeez, all the more reason for the U.N. to take over the Sea????????? They already have control over 70% of the world's land mass. See following thread.

LOST and Found: Senate Moves Toward Ratification of U.N.'s 'Law of the Sea Treaty'

Thursday, March 12, 2009

The Senate is gearing up to ratify a decades-old U.N. treaty that critics warn could create a massive U.N. bureaucracy that could even claim powers over American waterways.

The U.N. began working on LOST in 1973, and 157 nations have signed on to the treaty since it was concluded in 1982. Yet it has been stuck in dry dock for nearly 30 years in the U.S. and never even been brought to a full vote before the Senate.

You guys are catching this foolishness fast. I was on the pirates story a few months back. When they took rubber boats and overtook 1000 foot vessels.

They are struggling to keep the masses asleep.

It's funny how the US ship captain (and a Vermonter as well) is being called a "hero" even though he was taken hostage. I don't see what's heroic about being taken hostage? Why does our society automatically label such people as heroes? I thought heroes are people who've actually saved lives? Done something noteworthy?

I think the "pirates" have more guts and are more likely heroes because they dare to stand up to the status quo of the seas.
