From Vanity Fair:
The source on pirateology, the history of piracy, the romance of the buccaneer, pirates in the media, modern piracy, pirate fashion, pirate parties and the influence of the renegade on the modern psyche.
The “Black Hawk Down” battle of 1993 didn’t end U.S. involvement in Somalia. Far from it. In recent years, America has quietly fought a proxy war there in the name of anti-terrorism. The results have been dismal: insurgency, bloodshed, pirates.
