Yes, the seas must remain safe and open.
Maybe, but only in response to pirate attacks.
No, we should not involve in unless US citizens are captured
Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
Keeping the seas open is different from policing other nations internally. The USA has an interest in keeping the oceans open and safe.
people you wonder why we are in dept! its because we are always so busy policing the world and trying to spreed democracy but what we don't seem to release is that sometimes a dictator is needed. I mean ok alot of these guys are bad, bad guys who need to answer for their crimes, but when the peoples fear of them is the only thing holding countries together. If they dont exist, these countries will deteriorate into another Egypt, another Syria.
I saw the movie about the pirate attack, and it was scary.
However, there is a simple solution:
The ship and crew involved were completely unarmed. That is how 4 Somali pirates in a tiny boat were able to board and take over the huge vessel. If the crew had as little as just a few rifles, it could have held them off, and likely finished them off for good.
Having our Navy do it is very expensive and can miss a lot of pirate attacks.
Solution: Any ships that might even get close to pirate waters (Somalia and Nigeria in particular), should arm themselves--rifles, shotguns, even a machine gun or two and some RPG's. Whenever pirates come, blow them out of the water. Pretty soon, there won't be any pirates left, and the problem is solved.
