    With your talent for finding fault with America, seemingly, without regard to what the matter might be, please help me out and tell me how you'd bash this development.

    Thats completely false. I just point to the faults. Never said that the US and everything about it is negative, thats just your extremist opposition reflex of anyone mentioning ANYTHING negative about the US.
    Perhaps in this day and age we should ban all negative talk about the US, it would certainly fit the political picture of the last 8 years.

    Well, other than the UK and France, nice to see someone else down there from Europe. Kudos for the Germans. The entire maritime world needs to focus on this problem. It affects all of us.

    As a Taiwanese you probably have an opinion about the Chinese involvement.. Id like to hear that.
    I think its dumb that these nations do not cooperate. Like th article said, Germans will only bring people to trial that "went against German interests". All the countries down there are really just protecting their own national trade fleet. Chinese protect Chinese, Germans protect Germans and so on.. The only one that really do general protection I guess would be France and possibly the US and the European mission.

    Its secret, and its 20 times more powerful than the US navy, which quite honestly looks amateurish in comparison.
    Huge underseas monsters, and flying hangar ships(that also can dive) and so on, but luckily Germany is a pacifist nation now

    Their part for what? Not getting their **** stolen? Well I guess I'm doing my part to prevent crime by making sure my money isn't stolen either. .

    For the record, I am U.S. born and immigrated to Taiwan years ago.

    I am concerned any time China gets involved because they always insert politics. However, I don't see too much damage they can do in this situation.

    The British, French, and Americans seem to try to protect everyone there. I can't speak for the others. Still, the more assets in the area, the more intimidating that could be to the pirates.
