Storyline

Stolen Seas presents a chilling exploration of the Somali pirate phenomenon and forces you to rethink everything you thought you knew about pirates. It's November 8th, 2008 and the CEC Future, a Danish-owned merchant ship, is on high alert. Sailing inside the pirate-infested swath of sea between Somalia and Yemen, the ship's captain blinks hard at the radar screen where a light begins to flash. This is it, Nozhkin thinks, and he's right. Machine guns sound on the boat's hull and for two months this 13-man crew will be held at the mercy of Somali pirates, helpless as hostage negotiations threaten their lives and cameras capture every move. The pirates' translator, Ishmael Ali, a single dad who may or may not have stumbled into this controversial role, puts in a call to the shipping magnate's CEO Per Gullestrup demanding an exorbitant 7 million dollars. The shipowner's response is the first of many misfires and communications to come. These two adversaries will have to become unlikely ... Written by Anonymous

a story of Somalian Pirates from a Liberal View
22 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Parts of this documentary are interesting but overwhelmingly it is presented from a very liberal point of view. The 'narrator' appears to be telling the audience that it is a 'Somalian right' to hijack ships and kidnap people for ransom, at gunpoint, using automatic rifles and bazookas and rocket propelled grenades and threatening death and dismemberment to the hostages just because there are a lot of countries 'out there' who have 'lots of money' and the poor Somalian people have no jobs and no real government and no hope of change without this piracy of the seas. The involved speak of American rights to guns and 'why not us'? The difference is that Americans have guns- and the right

  • to protect themselves, Not to commit piracy and crimes of kidnapping


of ships and people of other countries for personal gain.

IMHO maybe the Somalis should work at a stable government and jobs and go fishing.
