I am not up for mass retribution against the Somalia people. I think the Somalia government my truly be unable/ unequipped to battle these pirates. (not that they would even if they were) Even our government has acknowledged the challenges of battling these guys.
I would however be okay with heavy US Navy patrols in this area for about 6 months with mini gun vs dingy and see how long it takes the pirates to decide it's not worth the risk.

It sure looks like you are trying to justify their actions because they are poor......
What they are doing is armed robbery....
QUOTE=Agnapostate;1058336994]Yeah, again...no jingoist perspective here. The fact that some people engage in piracy because of indigence exacerbated by governance by feuding warlords and people like that isn't justification for deciding to eradicate many more people in the surrounding area, imho.

Every Western nation has a unit that is made just for those occasions.
Perhaps it's time to use it?
