Ahoy thar Mateys!
Cap’n Bob has spotted those scallywag Somali pirates off the horn of Africa!
Their landlubbin lair is in the town of Eyl. It’s time to send those Scurvy dogs to Davy Jone’s locker!
Sadly the Lily-livered UN are hiding from a real scuffle and they want us to just sit off the coast and wait for the rascals to come to us.
Well that’s not the way to fight pirates.
Look at what the Saudis are doin! Their tanker get’s pirated and suddenly a bunch of Islamists are attacking the pirates. Hmmmm? Kinda makes you wonder if these Islamist enemies of ours have been in the back pockets of the Royals all along.
The Ruskies have the right idea for a change. They want to sack the pirate towns. From what I see, it would be a walk in the park.
With the help of google maps we can get a good look at the Pirate town of Eyl.

Here is an Arial shot of their fortress.

This must be where the pirates are at. It’s the only place in the damn village that has any trees. And the rich folk in Somalia like to lounge around in the shade when they ain’t stealin booty off the coast. Plus, look how they built their houses in a defensive position. This little fortress needs a sackin!
If we ain’t got the stomach for that, then at least we can storm the beaches and break up their vessels. Lookey here! They’re just sittin there as plain as the eye can see!

All this stuff can be found on google maps.
Lookey here. Here's my house!
Looking for some Pirate searching fun? Try this. That big old oil tanker that the Pirates captured is sitting off the coast near the Somali town of Harardhere. The satellite pictures are not that up to date.But if you look hard, you might be able to find this ship. It looks like pirates to me!!
