interesting article from Huffington Post: "You Are Being Lied to About 
Pirates":

for example:


    POSTSCRIPT: Some commenters seem bemused by the fact that both toxic
    dumping and the theft of fish are happening in the same place -
    wouldn't this make the fish contaminated? In fact, Somalia's
    coastline is vast, stretching to 3300km. Imagine how easy it would
    be - without any coastguard or army - to steal fish from Florida and
    dump nuclear waste on California, and you get the idea. These events
    are happening in different places - but with the same horrible
    effect: death for the locals, and stirred-up piracy. There's no
    contradiction.
