Pirates have now upped the ante. They have taken another US ship, and are holding a total of 16 crew hostage.
I don't know about anyone else, but to me, this is now an act of war. A few bombs on the nation that is harboring them is a good starter. Let's do that and see if the government cracks down on these vermin. If not, then keep bombing until they do.
The only way to defeat piracy is to make the cost to the nation harboring them much more expensive than the profit the pirates make. This strategy is called "Make pirate organizations another AIG, but with no bailout".
