Aden Revenant Initiates Karachi Blockade!
Image
KARACHI, PAKISTAN (Reuters) - After 2 years of Pakistani Treachery, the mysterious band of pirates known as Aden Revenant has initiated a blockade of the major port city of Karachi. The Leader of Aden Revenant declined to comment directly. Anonymous sources say the self-styled Grand Admiral Kal-shabab, more commonly known as "Cap'n Kal," viewed the operation as retaliation for Pakistan's recent actions in Oman and Yemen. People familiar with the Admiral say his goal was to keep the Pakistani fleet in port, which would allow his Revenant ships to operate freely in the area. We at the Aden Corsair watch with interest as this showdown develops.

Chinese Hegemony in Africa?
KINSHASA (AP) - While the world was busy scratching their heads, wondering how the People's Republic of China acquired an African colony in the first place, Chinese soldiers were storming Central Africa with seeming reckless abandon. Now, two years into the conflict, it is rapidly becoming clear that China has no match on the continent. We at the Corsair wonder how long such an arrangement can continue. Will Africa stand up and fight? Or has China already won the war?
