"A lucky group of Somali pirates were taken to a South Korean prison recently after they were captured in a commando raid on the high seas. Now it’s reported that they enjoy the quality of their lives substantially more than home in Somalia. 'South Korean jail is better than decent hotels in Africa,' one pirate was quoted as saying. (Bangkok Post; 2/1/11) The story doesn’t reveal all that much about South Korea, but it sure tells us a lot about politics in Somalia." (02/08/11)
