17 Somalis die in battle between gov't, insurgents - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100701/ap_on_re_af/af_somalia - broken link)

According to this, the situation with pirates isn't the only issue. There has also been government insurgency in Somalia. I happen to know this is nothing new. Things have been going on like this for a long time. In fact, Somalia was recently declared a failed state not too long ago. The point of this discussion is to get more background on Somalia, and see how the issues in Somalia have some connection, or correlation to the issues in post-colonial Africa.
