Being held captive Day 33.
Innocent Filipino sailors are still being held captive in Somalia by pirates.
One of them- Jolan Besana- is a proud father, loyal husband, all-around nice guy, and a part of my family.
There have been recent updates about the pirates of Aden:
Some hostages from other ships were freed after payment was received.
More ships were taken- the problem is not being stopped!
The Ukrainian arms ship is still held, and Russia was unable to obtain it.
I know you’re focused on the U.S. presidential election, the world economy, the new James Rhodes in Iron Man 2, and Apple stock, but you should be spreading the word that the U.N. and U.S. need to put pressure on African countries to fix their own problem, and help free these hostages. You can also understand why the U.S. MUST get involved in international affairs to make the world a safer place- either by asserting real pressure on countries or by using force.
