a nice Lebanese-Arab proverb says :
if you ,once, have to steal , then steal a Camel
(the Camel being the biggest animal)
and if you want to fall in love, then fall for the Moon
(the moon being the ultimate beauty in Arab literature)
I say if you have to steal , go ahead and steal
a 200 million Barrels Giant-Tankers. .....
Pirates have just done this, off the African Coast
it is owned by Aramco , the biggest company worldwide
the monopole-holder of all Saudi Oil,
owned by the richest monarchs on this Planet , who also owns
the whole Kingdom of Saudi Arabia , itself......
This huge cargo was originating from this
non-constitutional- absolute- monarchy- source
to probably ,the only-super-power which happens
to be the richest entity on earth....... .the USA.
It is stolen , or at least kidnapped , now
hijacked by Mr. Unknown
whether Somali Pirates or any other pirates ,
is irrelevant to me.
So much wealth ,
while, moving between the wealthiest-Family
towards the wealthiest-country,
is stolen , which makes it a crime !!
or rather a re-distribution of wealth ??
Somebody has stolen it......
is it a crime or a heroic-act ??
by any standards... ...you wish to apply ??
The Oil of Iraq is stolen 7 days per week, since 2003

78% of Palestine is stolen since 60 years
and nobody calls them Pirates..... .
and the list is long........ .......
