    It would be cheaper than using our armed forces, and would give the Xe guys (formerly known as Blackwater) something to do - Perfect fit, too.

    And who watches the pirate busters to make sure they aren't looting a ship that isn't full of pirates?

    Who cares, as long as they aren't looting our ships? That's how privateering works.

    So you are ok with crimes happening just as long as it isn't against our own ships. Got it.

    This is what they actually plan on doing:

    Clinton unveils initiative to combat 'scourge of piracy'

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday unveiled a diplomatic initiative to thwart attacks on ships off Somalia's coast and combat what she called the "scourge of piracy."

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has called for measures to help combat pirate attacks off Somalia.

    Clinton said the State Department will "explore ways to track and freeze pirate assets," similar to measures used against drug traffickers and terrorists.

    [...]
    Oldest trick in the book... Do nothing about the underlying problems and then just steal their money. I guess this is how they plan to make up for the deficit.


    "We have a pretty good idea where the land bases are and we want to know what the Somali government, what tribal leaders who perhaps would not like to have the international community bearing down on them, would be willing to do to rid their territory of these pirate bases," she said.

    [...]
    TERRORIST.

    In case you haven't noticed this before, I'm okay with a lot of things.

    If our leaders think that authorizing privateers is the most effective way to fight piracy, that's okay. If our privateers wander off the reservation and start attacking other vessels, which is practically an inevitability, that's okay too. And when other countries get pissed off and start sinking our privateers, I am also perfectly okay with that.

    That's why we use freelancers instead of using our own Navy.

    Well I guess if a freelancer kills your family, that's ok too right?
