Somalia has been for decades a country on the verge of humanitarian catastrophe with constant inner conflicts hunger and place where only the pirates "reign". "Horn of Africa Pirates" as they have been called in the Gulf of Aden area, seize ships asking for millions of dollars ransom for their release and become one of the most interesting global phenomena. Somalia piracy problem is becoming a growing international problem that should be primarily resolved on land of Somalia then at sea. This year Somalia celebrates her 50th anniversary of independence, a reason more for the Somalia people to be united in their fight for freedom and dignity of their own country, regardless of their regional or tribal affiliation. Somalia should be provided with a decisive international support and solidarity in order to start to build her stability, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
