Of course! The internationalists are behind it!

(Ah, yes, the hated Law of the Sea Treaty. If you don't know what I mean, read some horrified right-wing commentary about the treaty from Ron Paul himself, Accuracy in Media, the Cato Institute, Frank Gaffney via Michelle Malkin, and the Ludwig von Mises Institute.)

Oh, and there's also this, from way out on the fringe:

The Somali Pirates of Israel

... It doesn't take many grey cells to see that the US and Israel are up to some of their usual mischief in creating this pseudo-crisis about Somali pirates. When the Islamic Courts Union (ICU) held sway over Somalia, piracy had been virtually eradicated.

... But that kind of peace doesn't go well with the "Wars for Empire and Israel" crowd, so they supplied Ethiopia with money, weapons and advisors so they could invade Somalia and overthrow the ICU.

Which the US backed Ethiopian troops did in January of 2007. Not long after that, "pirates" began appearing off the coast of Somalia, taking tankers as prizes and demanding ransom.

Add in the fact that Israel's ZIM Integrated Shipping Services is one of the world's largest maritime operators..... What's that? You don't know who ZIM is?

ZIM is one of the Israeli owned companies that hot footed it out of the WTC one week before the attacks, even agreeing to give up their $50,000 dollar deposit on their lease....


I don't expect this kind of talk to migrate to the mainstream right -- but I bet there'll be at least one Glenn Beckist conspiracy theory suggesting that this incident was a "false flag" operation meant to distract Americans from ... something.

(I'm betting on the tea parties.)
