Why the real threat of the Sirius Star hijacking is not rising oil prices - but Islamic terrorism, Al-Shabaab terrorists have website based in USA

The Sirius Star joins at least 14 other ships which Somali pirates are currently holding to ransom, along with more than 260 crew members. They come from dozens of nations, many of them poor and Muslim. Al-Shabaab Pirates take super tanker loaded with oil for the USA. Al-Shabaab recruit on their website based at the Dotster Co in Vancouver WA, USA. $100 Mill Oil Cargo on Sirius Star, Al-Shabaab want $10 Mill ransom !

Following article from the Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday, Evening Standard & Metro Media Group By Michael Burleigh Last updated at 12:41 AM on 19th November 2008

The price of oil rose by a dollar yesterday as a direct result of the Sirius Star capture. But the danger of these modern-day brigands goes far beyond a jump in oil prices. The pirates are closely linked to Islamic terrorists - and this is where the real risk to the West lies. Pirates have already seized tankers laden with benzene and could easily take a ship loaded with liquid gas.

Security experts in south Asia fear that such a ship could be used as a giant floating bomb in the Malacca Straits, reducing a city such as Singapore to rubble or blocking a major shipping route carrying much of the world's trade.
How long before Al-Shabaab terrorists - the name means 'The Lads' - in Somalia countenance such an atrocity?

Everyone would feel the indirect impact as world trade ground to a halt while the price of oil went through the roof. The Sirius Star joins at least 14 other ships which Somali pirates are currently holding to ransom, along with more than 260 crew members. They come from dozens of nations, many of them poor and Muslim.

The captive ships range from the Ukrainian Faina, laden with guns, ammunition and 32 battle tanks, to bulk carriers, tankers, ocean-going tugs and gleaming luxury yachts. The pirates are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Once they used fake distress lights to lure ships in shore, or pretended to be fishermen who told their victims they had run out of water to get on board. Now they are capable of seizing a ship far out to sea, deploying spies in the home port and communications monitoring equipment to identify and track their prey.

Clearly the problem requires high level coordination. The frequency of recent hijackings has led France and the U.S. to force the UN Security Council to debate relaxing the territorial waters restrictions which prevent navies pursuing pirates inshore to their bases.

Security companies have come up with non-lethal alternatives such as electrified ship's rails to repel pirates, or blinding lights and deafening sirens. Experts also recommend stationing 24-hour look-outs in pirate-infested seas. This was apparently not done on the Sirius Star.

As a last resort masters should be trained in evasive measures, zig-zagging until pirates in small boats with limited fuel give up. Above all, with a menace that threatens China, Japan, Malaysia, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and South Korea, as well as the West, the world needs to respond quickly and strongly to banish the pirates.

Unlike so-called bloggers who sit and complain about Islamic Terrorism, I do something about it. See the partial list of Islamic Terrorr websites shut down by private investigator Bill Warner in 2008, click here and here and here and here and here..................
The official terrorist website of Al-Shabaab has been operating out of the Dotster Co in Vancouver WA, USA for well over 12 months, it is a source of terrorist recruitment from the USA the UK and elsewhere, it is also a source of funding for the al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab in Somalia.
Al-Shabaab in Somalia is Al-Qaeda,

I have made several attempts at getting the terrorist website of Al-shabaab shut down since May of 2008, there were 3 article written in the local Vancouver WA newspaper in an attempt to get the Dotster Web Hosting Co to shut down the site, the Dotster Web Hosting Company refuses to do so sighting Freedom of Speech for the Al-Shabaab terrorist group and their USA website.

See the following Newspaper articles that were printed in the Columbian Newspaper Vancouver WA, USA;
A). Dotster under fire for Web content - May 6, 2008, often praises leaders in al-Qaida in Somalia.
B). Should Dotster continue to host a Web site that frequently praises Islamic militants? - May 5, 2008, On one side: The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects the right to freedom of speech and expression, and law enforcement agencies...
C). In our view: Internet Censor - May 7, 2008, A Florida man's heart might be in the right place, but he is misguided in his bid to get a Vancouver Internet service company to drop a Somali-language Web site. Bill Warner, a Sarasota private investigator ( ), wants Dotster Inc. of...As you can tell by the last article on May 7th, the Columbian Newspaper sides with the Dotster Web Hosting Co and upholds the right for a known terrorist group to continue to spew terrorist propaganda, recruit and obtain contributions for the jihad on-line.

On February 29, 2008, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice designated al-Shabaab (aka al-Shabab, aka Shabaab, aka the Youth, aka Mujahidin al-Shabaab Movement, aka Mujahideen Youth Movement, aka Mujahidin Youth Movement, aka MYM, aka Harakat Shabab al-Mujahidin, aka Hizbul Shabaab, aka Hisbul Shabaab, aka al-Shabaab al-Islamiya, aka Youth Wing, aka al Shabaab al-Islaam, aka al-Shabaab al-Jihaad, aka the Unity of Islamic Youth) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (as amended) and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist under Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 (as amended).

The consequences of these designations include a prohibition against the provision of material support or resources to al-Shabaab and blocking of all property and interests in property of the organization that are in the United States, or come within the United States, or the control of U.S. persons.

So what the hell is the Dotster Web Co in Vancouver WA, USA doing ?
