Mapping Pirate Activity

I rarely watch the news. I guess I've started back up again with the heartening news of the recent election. Anyway, I heard about all this 'pirate' activity in the area near Somalia involving the hijacking of big cargo and oil freighters. Sounds scary, right? And it is, but when looking at the ICC Comerical Crime Services web mapping of pirate action, you see that these high seas terrorists are all over the place.

While I'm on the subject, the word 'pirate' connotes something romantic. These folks are ocean-going terrorists and they are all over the map, not just in the area where the U.S. gets our oil.
