"somalia" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk

"There are few Stern, a test of the strength of a country and its institutions the breakaway region. There is almost no way for the nation being broken away from to look good. The very fact of a breakaway region causes the rest of the world to wonder what he's so dreadful about a given country that anyone wants to break away from it, and as a matter of internal politics, it presents a choice between managing the break-up or going to war to stop it. Added to which sometimes breakaway movements are just silly and self indulgent, a means of gratifying ambitious politicians and melodramatic nationalists, lucky enough to live in places where the colors on the flag flying over them actually rank as a pressing concern. Not, everyone, who is aggrieved is right. West Somaliland is concerned. It is difficult to begrudge jets decision back in Nineteen ninety-one to secede from Somalia and set up shop on its own Somalia walls then, and has frequently been since dysfunctional and Dangerous Somaliland has done pretty well. All things considered it is largely peaceful and orderly holds free issue and Farish elections and make some kind of living exporting livestock, though remittances sent back home by its diaspora estimated to be a hefty wack of Somaliland's GDP so I feel my own of my right. To Freedom. To. The the business that I like. Somalian Independent. Has a similar value with air that we are. Not One of the country has done Somaliland de courtesy of formal recognition least of all Somalia which still regard Somaliland. Part of it, but the two are now talking to each other in circumstances which look very much like an international summit, rather than an internal dialogue, first and foremost. Let me see that it's a pressure. To be here. With you today? Unto Battisti Bait. The continuation of the dialogue between Somaliland, Somalia Somaliland, president and former rebel commander, mercy and Somalia President Mohamed Abdillahi Mohamed better known as farmers Joe have been meeting this week in Djibouti. Chairing these talks reasonably enough has been. Djibouti's president is Mel Omar Guelleh but the more significant. Might be the OPN Prime Minister Ali. Ahmed, we won the two thousand and nineteen nine Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to reconcile Ethiopia with its former breakaway region of area, and who hosted an informal meeting between be he and former Joe in at US Abbott in February. Somaliland's agenda here is not difficult to discern Somaliland, Somalia and everyone else to recognize its sovereignty, and sees right now as being as propitious moment as any in the next few weeks, Somalia and Somaliland will celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the end of colonial rule, modern Somalia was founded on July first nineteen sixty by uniting the territories, which had once is the former Italian colony of Somalia, with what had been partition Somaliland. Indeed for a five day interregnum between emerging from British rule and joining Somalia Somaliland was briefly an independent state. It wishes to be again. We conducted Acoustic Shell Riverine them. In which ninety seven percent of Landry's fourteen to support the constitution and the independence. Of Allen has created a conducive environment that enabled. Thriving private sector on an inflow of international investment, so Milan has blade on important role in the peace and security of the region, and has been reliable partner and the fight against terrorism by Rossi who human trafficking, money, laundering and other forms of organized crime's. Unfortunately. In a state of shading all those efforts and contributions made by the smell of people for the last fifty years Somalia was in constant war against the development of Marina. It's a little harder to tell what mileage Somalia perceives in these talks. It's official. Position has not changed. It regards Somaliland as part of Somalia. Some opposition figures in Mogadishu have suggested that President Farmer Joe is somehow hoping that cutting statesmanlike dash will accrue him enough political capital to delay Somalis twenty twenty election, which if it happens would be Somalia's first proper election for just over half a century, a fact, which kind of reminds why Somaliland wanted out in the first place. It is noticeable that the talks between Somalia and Somaliland have been warmly welcomed by an Internet national community, which is normally pretty cagey about encouraging secessionists, the United Nations and the United States have endorsed the talks, both possibly hoping after several bruising and occasionally bloody decades of engagement with Somalia that resolving disputes through negotiation might be a habit that catches on in regards to Somalia Somaliland relations. We are encouraged. The dialogue is ongoing at senior levels, and that both sides have indicated a willingness to maintain communication and pursue further discussions. Other onlookers have economic interests notably the United Arab Emirates which has invested heavily in Somaliland, which sits on eight hundred fifty kilometers of Gulf of Aden coastline. Discussions appear to have been broadly amicable. If nevertheless tents what diplomats would describe as constructive and mercifully not at the risk of tempting fate, full and frank. Their walls, a minor kerfuffle at one point when Djibouti issued a joint communique, which carelessly referred to Somaliland as a country after an amount of her upcoming from the Somali delegation, the inflammatory phrase was deleted. Somaliland dolls have a case for being so described, however, its credentials as a sovereign state are at least a solid as those of Nia, neighbors era, which became formally independent in nineteen, ninety-three and South Sudan, which took its seat at the UN in two thousand and eleven. Somaliland won't get what it really wants out of these talks, but it will get to look like other players on the world stage. Take it seriously, and might get Malia used to the idea of addressing it as as separate equality, and that will do Somaliland's cause, no harm until. Twenty four! I'm out dream..

Interview With Rabbi Daniel Lapin About The Coronavirus Situation

"All right let me go to rabbi Daniel Lapin because I I have a religious question for the rabbi and it revolves around jubilee and I was thinking how do we get out of this mess without just scrapping the entire worlds to adapt to that no one could ever pay is we're already there rabbi welcome to the program our area hi Glen good to be with you again and before we've even going a little further let me just to congratulate you and thank you for being the only one to deeply and honestly probe Ted Ross Adams links with the Chinese to address Saddam of course being the first ever non doctor head of the World Health Organization yeah and and covered some of the things you have yeah we we we just it's a main story now on the blaze dot com or you can you can watch this from the blaze yesterday I did a bit of a monologue on it this guy is was you know part of the politburo he is deeply in bed with China part of the the the the the political party the communist political party that he was a part of it will it was deemed a terrorist organization and he's the head of the WHL I mean it's insane insane it really is and and is distortion of the early weeks of the corona virus just prove whose pocket he's in bed it is happening because the Chinese have successfully colonized Africa to a fall great and also to the phone and to to a far more extractive way than the British and the Germans of the Belgians ever did in the nineteenth century yeah exactly right exactly right so rabbi Lapin I have a question on jubilee because we are racking up the debt the world is the rich you're going to get richer on this the banks are going to get their money everybody's making money except the actual people and it and there's no way to pay any of this back it's making all of the people into slaves all around the world and I remembered there was some sort of a system in in Jewish law that like loans had to be repaid by seven years or something like that and then every twenty five years or fifty years there was something called the jubilee world debt was wiped out and might even close on that yes no you you're definitely close and you and I spoke about this years and years ago and and you're exactly right there is it is a fifty program bad it's not quite the socialistic dream that some of our left leaning friends might my dream off because they will ways to make certain that business loans were exempt from this pay back and the reason was because business would have just slowed to a standstill for the last few years of the jubilee cycle because who's going to extend credit to and will close wiped out so A. as a sort of band aid to to irresponsible behavior in the proceeding is didn't didn't quite work that way and and also it it it didn't extend to the return of mortgaged land that is being developed how many undeveloped and so there again as it goes back really to to the big idea which which really were exposed to the very first time in the fourth chapter of genesis where god punished Cain for murder and and because the punishment is supposed to fit the crime in in guard system of justice and unity spectacle what was the punishment to train and the punishment was interestingly enough to fold most people only remember part of it people familiar and remember the best way god says well you have to be a wonder you never gonna be able to stay in the one place in any waiting periods of time but the second part of it was that you'll never be able to grow anything because whatever you trying point will not yield its strength to you so now it gets kind of interesting because what's Kane is being told is Hey you there are only two uses of lands the good lord made a certain amount of land and this two uses human beings can put it to agriculture and development we can grow things will build things mining falls on the ground so those are really the only things you can do now if the land is not going to yield to you then you compliment anything and if the land is is he is not going to be available to because you have to keep moving well you can't really build a skyscraper if you Constantinian one place long enough so somehow or another god is saying to cane use sort of that the secret to wealth acquisition was getting rid of the competition in a useful to begin to get rid of able and now you're gonna be able to have everything and guess what your land is worthless without other people it doesn't mean anything land the land in unpopulated areas of Somalia and Ethiopia for that matter is cheap really really cheap but there's a good reason it's cheap the location he wants to be there Landon very populated Hong Kong Switzerland is very expensive that's where people want to be and so one has to be very cautious when tampering with this divine system of human economic interaction and obliteration of debt is is a huge huge problem because of the blow that it strikes to the system of confidence on which all economic and and financial interaction depends so I you know wouldn't when you say it it can never be repaid well unfortunately there are many people in government or think it can because and that this is a professor at the state university of New York who was not adviser to the to the Sanders campaign who said this there's nothing the government can do it just prints more money no problem yeah you know right right literal failure to understand that that's just another way of stealing our money ever the citizens money and so this is this is unquestionably a huge problem but you know look England came out of World War two huge debts Germany came out of World War one and two with huge debts eventually impact the lost installment of one of these that's was paid I think as recently as the nineties so you does he eat it if we don't get paid that can get paid it'll just take a long time and and if it's not done very wisely and you can precipitate another crisis Texas is that system that is the situation at the vin diesel is that Yukon's destroy the system economic development and the big picture that AB it's been extraordinary to watch is that the default position is people will happily exchange freedom for security and so big organizations get big and I think we're all very concerned about the alacrity with which authorities have seized extraordinary power certainly questionable whether it's constitutional it's certainly not American tradition you know that something which is admittedly there's this there's there's a disease that's a problem it's kind of the salt yeah there was aids was the problem they found solutions he borrows a problem there's a vaccine flu is a big problem there's a vaccine you know I don't know when or what or how but it's going to be solved and the the problem here is is that we are we're not just training our liberty for security but we are we're actually flipping the sense of rights on its head you don't have a right to be safe from all things that that that that that's not even possible right in the Sony's acts and not a right right and so the government is is taking are enshrined rights and taking those away to prop up a right that doesn't and cannot exist and you you're probably on top of this as well but as is obsessive James Dwyer at William and Mary college I mean Michael one of the very old school in America who just recently wrote that the the rights that parents have with respect to the children all grounded by government and that's all it is pretty extraordinary so you know you thought you have a special relationship with your children know that depends on whether the government wishes were you retain that right with respect your children so the the fearsome and terrifying alacrity which with which people seem to accept this extension of in many cases all the tree application of governmental power such as the woman in the pocket and me my goodness the the speed with which you know the cop on the beat used to be your friends he was the one your kids could turn to if they will last and now what are you becoming a terrifying instrument of of applying state power it's easy it's it's frighteningly quick and

"For obvious reasons the idea of an old fashioned cross-border dust up between two neighboring nations seems right now almost quaint and perhaps the kind of thing likely to prompt replies in the circumstances along the lines of at this point who cares or not now leads where a bit busy nevertheless despite the best efforts of covert nineteen the world will keep turning and its constituent countries will continue to but against each other from time to time in East Africa in recent days. Somalia and Kenya have gone very close to going to war with each other and may get close. Astill the battlefield is jubilant. One of Somalia's five semi autonomous states. It lies just across Somalia's border with Kenya. Kenya regards drew ballooned as a vital buffet. Between it and Al Shabaab the fanatical Islamist militia which wreaks most of its havoc in Somalia but has also been responsible for large scale outrages in Kenya including the two thousand and thirteen attack on the West Gate Shopping Mall in Nairobi and the two thousand and fifteen attack on a university campus in Garissa accordingly Kenya has cultivated friendly relations with Jubal lands regional government and with jubilant president. Ahmed Mohamed Islam known colloquially as adobe Kenya has trained Madonna obeys militia and has troops of its own stationed injury bowland as part of the multinational African Union mission in Somalia and is also believed to have many more still camped under Kenya's own flag.

Can US troops injury ballooned are not seeing as style occupiers? However indeed President Mugabe's regional government seems to get on better with Nairobi than it does with Mogadishu. The most recent unpleasantness appears to have begun with fighting between drew balloons own forces and Somali government troops the jubilation soldiers retreated over the border into Kenya and the Somali troops followed them. At which point. Can you took an interest? The fighting appears to have centred on the town of Mandera a town wedged between the Kenya.

A diplomatic exchanges between Kenya and Somalia. Since have been terse verging on abrupt. Kenya has jumped about an unwarranted attack on its sovereign territory by foreign soldiers and so forth. Somalia has retorted to the effect that this is a bit rich coming from a country with thousands of its soldiers parked more or less permanently on the other side of its border. Kenya's desire to put physical distance between itself. And the PESTILENTIAL MARAUDERS OF AL. Shabaab is reasonable enough but it may not be the only or even the main reason why relations between Arab and Mogadishu have deteriorated as far as they have excitingly for fans of obscure maritime territorial disputes and. Come on who isn't the two countries are also at odds of a sea border. Exactly is the area in contention the border of the two countries when it comes to the seats and the only way to explain where the disputed portion of Indian Ocean is without incurring angry correspondence from either Kenya or Somalia.

It will come as little surprise to listeners that the stretch of Ocean in question abounds with oil and gas deposits. Nineteen outbreak may focus Kenyan and Somali attention elsewhere and or it may offer a party to this argument what it perceives as cover for decisive action. There has been some suggestion.

"Hi John and Welcomes Mentally Yours metro-dade. Uk's weekly mental health podcast. My Name Is Yvette. And this week my guest is Dr Anne White House. She's a scientist. And also the author of pullback your power we guys be chatting about imposter syndrome confidence and the weird and wonderful workings of the subconscious and White House. Welcome to mentally IOS. Thank you very much for coming on. So which hasn't today about your new book which is called Pullback Your power. Why did you decide that you wanted to write that? Well that's a long answer. Basically I went through a Takkula burnout in my my first career. Which was as the scientists that are not gimmick and instead of giving up I really spend the next two decades vide- digging into why I had had that reaction to walk out in what what is happening to me and other women like me because it's a pattern that many women experience and things it's not about just may about solving the problem for all women and that's really the motivation the book so it's literally twenty five years of my life journey. Twenty eight search making it accessible tool that benefits on and hopefully staff and what I've answered when you say you suffered ban would exactly happen okay. So when I read into my Shit I was there. I was dealing with students. I was dating colleagues dating The engineering companies. And what I found was despite my qualifications a Mike my competence and the fact that I could do the actual job no problem underneath the surface. I felt so undermined is I think probably read.

Well that's an interesting question for a very long time. It was simply that I was told on your. You have a high stress Korea knuckles. I did have a high stress career but I was.

"He said there was a strategy of calculated deception on the part of the senior officers and bureaucrats who testified at the inquiry and he urged the government to look into prosecuting officers officers. Who lied under oath? Art Eggleton was the Defense Minister and Ottawa. When the report was released he didn't hide his anger? Dishonoured legacy goes too far. It's a blanket condemnation of our military an unfair and unjust what it's an insult. Eggleton rejected commission claims that there had been a cover up and he said there was no reason to investigate the commission's accusations any further Eggleton said the time for pointing fingers was over. It was now time to get on with reforms over the years since the Somalia fair. The Canadian government has remodeled the Canadian Forces by completely revamping education and and professional standards officers must now have a university degree and military education now offers a more expanded emphasis on arts in culture. Scott Taylor says a lack of education was not the problem in Somalia. Why don't think you need university education to say don't beat a prisoner prisoner to death Might not be good for the hearts and minds and then if you do don't cover it up I mean come clean right so Some of these things just our basic common sense. You wouldn't need more than grade. Five Live to have been been up on this. But Taylor says there's been a massive cultural shift in Canada's military since Somalia he says the entire Officer Corps has changed ethos almost like an era of scandals too that was kind of Canada's Vietnam Somalia but then the others around it. The sort of brought about a massive change took the rust off and took these guys out of it because there was definitely a lot of Bad Apples and senior places could get away with this up just because there was no being sean in those corners and of course it's an autocratic top-down loyalty driven society right in one thousand ninety seven Kyle Brown was released from prison serving forty months of his five-year sentence. He tried to start a new life. In Alberta Berta went back to school found a job and he wrote a book called Scapegoat but according to media reports he disappeared a year later after he began experiencing the symptoms of PTSD for a while. He lived under a tree in a tent smoking crack but in two thousand and eight. He made his way back to society sidey and started over yet again in an interview with the Edmonton Journal in two thousand Sixteen Brown said he's been through intensive therapy that that forced him to relive the night of Chabane. Iran's beating Taylor still believes that Brennan was unfairly punished especially Kyle Brown was the whistle blower and by keeping the evidence that was irreputable. He damaged an awful lot of careers higher up in the whole regimen and everything else would happen because they tried to cover it up so he was punished Far More really than anybody else as you mentioned and his role in it He should have almost been praised as the whistle because without his photographs it would have been his word against out of a doctor who can only find two small Bruce Clayton matchy lives in Saskatchewan. Watch one he has brain damage from suicide attempt and spends most of his time in a veterans hospital or with his parents. He requires around the clock. Care Taylor says there are still some unanswered questions about what happened to matchy the night. He attempted suicide. He wasn't supposed to be found alive. I don't believe I mean. They arrested him and he was in kind of an open Open custody of not open but he was in a bunker. That didn't even have a door on it was in there and left him his bootlaces in his belt and then it was. Dr Armstrong was going by the front of the cell when he saw.

"They felt abandoned by a lack of leadership and in one case. Where with a guys showing? I mean this. This is just a solar showing that they're delivering food to a police station and then he says now follow me and they walk around the back and the same sacks of grain going out the back outdoor and being sold right right in front of the soldiers I mean. He says we're not helping. We're just adding to the corruption and they were able to blatantly film this Nicosia. I the sense that this was happening that they knew the mission was just. I mean there were there were there were. There were frustrated and all the things that they were going through. We're not achieving any of the goals that were being claimed back here so it was just a kind of put the mission into some sort of context Taylor says he decided to give the video to the CBC with the understanding they would highlight the frustration with the mission instead the CBC focused on the racist remarks made by some of the soldiers and as you would expect that became the main story. The reaction to the video by the federal government in Ottawa was swift defense minister. David Colonna said soldiers. Here's who display the kinds of racism. Seen in the video should be kicked out of the military. He said we will not tolerate those kinds of us. In the armed forces there would be zero tolerance the head of Canada's military chief of defence staff. John castellane ordered a military investigation into into the home movie. But then in a one two punch a second damning video was released this tape had been given to see. TV news by a former member or of the airborne regiment it showed members of the regiment taking part in a hazing ceremony. Some experts from the one hour video were broadcast on television canoes. But most of it was too graphic to show on TV. It was taken at the airborne base in Padua on -Tario in July nineteen ninety two five months before the regiment was deployed to Somalia. Scott Taylor along with a military officer were invited to watch the tape at C.. TV studios before it was released. They brought us in and we had never seen chasing video before and they they they ran it for us filming US watching the film and it was disgusting. I mean at a lot of things that they didn't put on. TV's because you can't put that on TV. I mean they say that it was simulated sodomy. Well no it was thought that there was feces. There was all kinds of things and colonels report one point left I mean he was. He was sick and By what he was watching the video shows those soldiers urinating and defecating on each other. There's one scene where someone is forced to eat toilet paper with feces on it and in another a-block soldier is tied to a tree and showered in white talcum powder then someone writes. KKK on his back with feces. The black recruit was also put on a leash and made to walk like a dog again. Defense Minister David colonnade expressed outrage and disgust in a statement. Meant he said. The activities of these people denigrates Canada's proud Canadian military heritage. Call an demanded a full report from General Castellane in five days on Monday January twenty third nineteen ninety five nearly two years since the death of sixteen year old should neurone. The government received its report from the head of the military in it Detroit. Elaine said the problems have been cleaned up in the regiment. He recommended the regiment be kept together. Gather and it should be allowed to go to Croatia in April nineteen ninety-five on a scheduled peacekeeping mission Chasta Lane believed the regiment deserved served. Another chance calling at disagreed. He rejected the advice and promptly went to the media and announced that the Canadian airborne born regiment was finished. We had to make the judgment whether the stain on the airborne's reputation was such that it could not be. We resuscitate it in the public eye. We have made that judgment and for that reason we have called for the spending of the regimen. Defense lands. Minister David Collonette sat at a news conference. It was important to show Canadians that the actions demonstrated in the two videos would not be tolerated. General General Distrust. Elaine was at the news conference to. He sat like a statue beside call an ad. His lips tightly purse together later he told reporters that they you shouldn't read anything into his expression. He said he always looked serious. Especially on occasions like this one Scott Taylor said he was furious. Es at General Steel Lane and the next thing that should have happened would have been shot taking office epaulettes and resigning right there in that. Because if you're paid to give advice and he'd given even the advice to keep the regimen and then they politically they said to to get rid of it and he didn't and then he took a ton of heat shuffling or not having having resigned because of this. The defense minister also announced at the news conference that the upcoming inquiry into the Somali affair would have an expanded mandate it would look into the roles of leadership and discipline within the chain of command from the top to the bottom two months after the government announced that the airborne regiment would be disbanded. A farewell sendoff was held at their home base in Peshawar while Ontario more than six six hundred members of the Canadian Airborne Regiment made a final parachute. Jump as fellow. Soldiers at about two thousand supporters watched on some members of the regiment wept OPTUS. They stood at attention falling into line behind their commander one last time they felt that dismantling the acclaimed unit because of a few bad apples wasn't wasn't necessary especially since there had been so many issues with the Somalia mission as a whole as airborne is to spend it. The soldiers will return to their home. Bases some veterans think. The government jumped too quickly while I don't see this atoll being fair to the thousands of Canadians who served this regiment and their country extremely. Well the disgraced regiment was the first military unit ever to be disbanded in Canadian history because of its actions about two weeks later the the government announced the three civilians would oversee the public inquiry into the regiment's ill-fated mission to Somalia a judge a journalist and diplomat were appointed did to the task. The inquiry was expected to cost between three and five million dollars and would be chaired. by Mr Justice Jila Turano. The hearing was expected to last three or four months with a report expected by the end of nineteen ninety. Five but by January nineteen ninety-seven. The inquiry was astill grinding. On so far it had cost ten million dollars and had been given two extensions so the government made a move to shut it down the defense minister who was now Doug Young told the commissioners they had to complete the inquiry by March thirty first nineteen ninety-seven and and submit a report by June thirtieth of the same year so far the inquiry had only managed to cover a few of the major issues that plagued the Somalia mission. They had investigated the first shooting of an intruder. In nineteen ninety-three the one word Somalian. Man was killed after being caught sneaking into the Canadian compound. The inquiry had also been able to deal with allegations of document tampering and destruction that took place at the military's public affairs branch after the mission was over. But because as the hearings were shut down the commission was unable to take a closer look at the killing of sixteen-year-olds aroun- which sparked the Somalia affair in in the first place. The final report. A sixteen hundred page document was released on July. Second Nineteen ninety-seven. It was called dishonored sauntered legacy the lessons of the Somalia fair in it Canada's military leaders were accused of covering up lying and maybe even breaking the law ought to hide the truth about the Somalia fair in particular. The commission believed there had been a cover up about the first shooting incident. A cover up that that involved people in Ottawa and Somalia. They believe the shooting death should at the very least been investigated as manslaughter. But it wasn't. No soldier was ever charged indirect connection with the death. The inquiry heard that Deputy Defense Minister Bob Fowler had met with members of the high command around the time of the shooting in March nineteen ninety-three and told them they should keep a low profile. Because then defense minister Kim Campbell. Bowl was a candidate for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party whether that directive came from Campbell was made by Fowler on his own the inquiry Jerry was unable to determine before it was. Shut down the commission wasn't able to pinpoint who was to blame for the cover up or how far are it. Went up the chain of command but the report did say the cover. Up of the first shooting may have paved the way for the killing of Chabane Rhone two weeks weeks later because soldiers may have gotten the feeling that they were above the law the report stated it is our belief that the failure of leadership immediately mmediately to address and remedy the problems revealed by the March. Fourth incident may have made possible the torture death of Somali Youth Twelve days later commission chairs yield attorney credited. Many rank and file soldiers for a job well done and said in the report that they had been let down. Ordinary soldiers were in a very real sense victimized by the systemic and leadership failures that that plagued Somalia mission chair Laterna said at the command level. The commission found deep moral and legal failings..

Didn't we rose patronize me? If you're interested in that kind of thing I'll tell you about it at the end of the podcast trigger. Warning. It's kind of a gory story. But that's not till the end right now. Let me tell you a bit about podcast episode number eighty five which features a conversation with American journalist and novelist. Michael Scott, more whose book the desert and the sea published earlier this year twenty tells the story of his capture in Somalia by pirates who held him hostage for nearly three years. Now, I read this book over the summer off to hearing Michael interviewed on NPR's fresh air podcast, actually, and I found the book completely fascinate. Eating and when Michael was visiting London in October, I managed to grab an hour or so with him. And he told me a bit about his experience at the hands of the pirates a few Michael Scott more facts before we get going Michael grew up in southern California where he started his writing career as theater critic for the San Francisco weekly disillusioned with life in America, Michael whose mother is German, but still lives in the US later moved to Berlin where he wrote for the online version of the newspaper Der Spiegel a keen surfer. Michael wrote, the book sweetness and blood published in twenty ten about to quote, the subtitle. How surfing spread from Hawaii and California to the rest of the world with some unexpected results in the course of researching a bit of seafaring history. Sweetness and blood Michael became interested in the history of piracy and in twenty eleven he reported on the trial in Germany of ten. In Somali pirates who had attempted to capture a German cargo ship that interest in modern day. Piracy led him in January twenty twelve to Galkayo in Somalia now, if you look at the African continent on a map pictured it in your mind to me, it looks like a person in profile with the big bulbous nose and the back of their head is a bit sticking out like a duck tail out into the Arabian Sea.
