Japan castles in scientific research to hunt thousands of copies each year, although use only for its gastronomic delicacies, as happens with shark fins. Scientists warned, civil society organizations denounced and risked in the defense of those marine spaces. But Governments and media closed eyes because it was the most developed economic interests. Now all miss is the hands to the head while the great powers, including Spain, they sent their fleets of war with tens of thousands of sailors and soldiers, planes, helicopters, weapons and modern space technologies to protect the Corsairs of our time: the fishing fleets that esquilman the waters of Somalia under the farce that are in international waters for decades. It should not be forgotten that, in Djibouti, United States has one of its major military bases and that the Gulf of Aden is crucial in Western strategy.

There is evidence that have fished in the vicinity of the African coast. Modern pirates have invaded and exhausted taking advantage of the lack of Governments and effective administrations in these countries. The European Union, the G8 and the UN have serious responsibilities for not helping to restore civic and political cohabitation in those countries. It happens in countries with reserves of oil, gas, bauxite, coltan, gold, diamonds and rich wood. Interested in the corruption of politicians to continue to act as during the conquests and colonies, but now without the responsibility to christianize them, civilize them and open them to trade, the three Ces of the Berlin Conference.

The European Commission intends to tackle a problem derived from a fishing fleet with excess capacity, shrinking fishery resources and a huge demand. And cannot think of them rather than creating a system of transferable fishing rights, as it has happened with the pollution, as if there were a right to pollute and to market these quotas of death. Now they intend to strengthen aquaculture to maintain the marine ecosystem and an activity that depend on millions of jobs in the European Union. Perhaps the natives of esquilmados countries have no rights? Nobody justifies the crimes of those current pirates taking advantage of the disaster. But you need to find the causes of that situation before anatematizar them. We send soldiers to fight pirates in turn, forgetting to the authentic privateers in the service of the interests of always. Would not another destination more just and secure for that huge money spent in the custody of a few ships? The Romans had no armies across the limes but other peoples with whom friends had done.
