  Which is true in a certain sense. 

  The pirates originated from the Somali fishermen who found their fising 
grounds being robbed by fishing factories from richer countries and the 
waters poisened by cheap disposal of toxic wastes from richer countries. 

  When now the imperialist countries mobilise a naval force to fight the 
Somali "coast guard", they also defend the robbery by their fishery capitalists 
in Somali waters. 

  If those imperialist navies would really want to end the piracy, they should 
act as a Somali coast guard, i.e. protecting the _Somali_ use of the Somali 
territorial waters and economic zone, instead of protecting the robbers 
plundering the Somali territory.
