    Besides, I don't understand why were 4 American civilians touring around the Somali coasts with no armed escort. Citizens who want to pass through that area should be legally forced to be escorted by armed security personnel.
    Lol at the deterrence.
    Won't work

    How about this radical suggestion. Wait for it ... Deal with the original causes of Piracy.

    Problem with that is these pirates aren't very accommodating, and don't dress like this:


    Trying to find 100 Somalis you can prove are pirates, and not just fishermen or whatnot could be a problem, unless you're all for indiscriminate massacres, the only real solution is for a proper government to emerge, and I don't think that's gonna happen any time soon.

    This is a disgusting comment. So the fact that they were Christian missionaries justifies their murder by pirates? I believe you are blind to the truth. So, when I went to Haiti to help the poor as a missionary should I have been gunned down?

    And unless you provide explanation I must say you are making yourself very easy to ignore with those kind of "debate skills".

    The cause is the povetry of the Somali citizens, and that is the responsibility of the Somali government, not the American one.
    The Ameircan government has however an obligation to maintain the security of its citizens at home and abroad.

    Don't you see, America needs to solve the problem of the Pirates extorting people for money in exchange for not hurting them by giving the pirates a bunch of money so they're not in poverty anymore and won't hurt anyone.

    Obviously the solution to keep pirates from hurting people in exchange for money is to give the pirates money so they stop hurting people. Come on Apoc, its logic. We shouldn't be punishing them for their actions, we should be giving them money to stop them from demanding more money.

    why not do the same thing that cops do? Use a 'bait boat'.

    Have a remotely controlled boat followed by a sub. The pirates board the boat... discover it empty... and the sub takes out the boat while the pirates are abord. Do that enough times, and maybe the piracy will at least slow.
