People from far and wide, sensing that no one could stop them, started dumping nuclear and bio-hazardous waste on your shoreline, causing your family and friends to sicken and die, and you had no cure for what ailed them – would you stand upon the shore and shake your fist at the sky?
These same predatory people started trawling the oceans off your shores where the poison hadn’t yet reached, carrying off the better part of the fish and sea life with them to far countries, and you and your family and friends barely had enough to keep body and soul together – would you mutter darkly into the ground?
Would you – being a young person and full of anger as your loved ones died of starvation and of strange wasting diseases – hatch a plan to defend your land against these callous strangers? These strangers who barely considered you a human being, who knew the defenseless state of your countrymen and yet, instead of compassion, dealt death; in place of food aid dispensed sickness?
What would it take – if you were the mother of sons and daughters – to encourage them to take to the waters in little boats, carrying all the weaponry they could lay their hands upon, and to avenge the murder of their kin?
I have no two thoughts on this. The Somalian pirates are taking on the world. If I were in their shoes, I would do just whatever it took to defy the cultures of destructive evil and – yes – to kill as many of them as I had it in me to take out.
God-forms and spirits all bless you.
