    If the pirates cannot launch boats from those ports, THEY CANNOT COMMIT ACTS OF PIRACY.
    Then maybe we should kill all Somalians. If some Somalians become pirates, we could kill them all, thus ridding ourselves of the pirate threat! Brilliant logic!

    Accept it and move on.



    And you are still MAKING EXCUSES for pirates and those who harbor them.



    The life of civilian life is tragic; however, when those "civilians" are living off of the spolis of theft and murder THEY MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

    They want a free pass -- they can exhile the pirates. Otherwise they can accept the consequences of living off of the proceeds of theft and murder.
    I've never heard such an asinine appeal from ethnocentrism in my life. You seem to think that Somali citizens are living a life similar to people from downtown Harlem or something, like they have a 'choice'.

    These civilians are either going to 'harbor' these pirates or die. These communities have no options.

    1. It's not "random" shelling if we are attacking legitimate military targets.

    2. Civilian casualties are an acceptable consequence of attacking legitimate military targets.

    No. This is the accepted standard of armed conflict.

    You cannot defeat my argument so you're screaming "emotional diatribe".

    You know that how?

    The only assinine thing here is your tired lack of vision. You defend theives are murderers --- you are as bad as they are.

    Kindly save your hippy diatribes for Berkley town hall meetings and tree-hugging ceremonies!

    I would be satisfied with bombing the Somali costline until it can no longer be used to lauch water craft.

    This applies to the harbors in these cities as well.
