Pirates use ransom to fund school for disabled Somali kids
GAROWE, Somalia - We were invited to visit the local school which has a plague on it's wall: "This School for disadvantageous children was built on the moneyexchanged for the release of the crew of the French yacht, Le Ponant."
School's classes of American History stay equipped with laptops without broadband Internet access after the Maersk-Alabama, U.S.-flagged cargo boat, failed to payfor it's captain.
Next to the school there is a twelve foot high monument depicting a small sea boat with two brave men carrying bazookas in their hands.
The warriors whom the West calls "pirates" are denying any wrongdoing, especially since the Global Fight Against Piracy certified that all Somali software used tonavigate the high seas have been properly registered with the vendors.
It is said here these warriors always return from the missions with water samples for studies at the National Deep Sea Institute.
Actually, the local government gave us a whole list of their recent charity contributions:
-- 4,465,000 yuans, made after computers from an unnamed Chinese ship had been given to the Mogadishu Symphony Orchestra.
-- 643,000 euros made after selling cars from the Italian cargo ship Sardinia have been spent to moderate the Islamic fight to limit the number of wives to three.
-- 16,563,000 Russian rubles after selling tanks from cargo ship Faina were given to Somalia National Public Radio for the talk show All Goods Considered which isdedicated to distribute seized electronics among the country’s poorest.
-- 2,854,000 Somali shillings were handed to the East Africa Metropolitan Museum of Art; although, that grant raised some legality concern from the country's GeneralAttorney because of the source of the money
In January the continued news of ransoms prompted the great Mogadishu Stock Exchange rally, while the rest of the world stocks continued to fall.
The money fromselling these goods helped return the government bailout given to Somali Maritime Services Ltd. earlier than expected.
The U.S State Department shows Somalia as an example of a self-sustained economy, unlike its East Africa neighbors.
The next step for these warriors is a plan to launch a space ship with two or three astronauts, traditionally equipped with Kalashnikovs, to board the InternationalSpace Station for a historic-first money exchange made in weight-less space. That mission will fund the search of extra-solar planets pioneered by professor Ererqwa,the Nobel Prize winner from MIT (Mogadishu Institute of Technology).
