    Don't recall anyone suggesting bombing all of Somalia. Just those villages that harbor pirates....ya know, those "select few of individuals" and their in-port co-conspirators and accomplices?

    In both ways I think shelling the villages that harbor pirates isn't a good idea because its impossible to find all the villages are pirates, and it will make more pirates than it will eliminate.

    Those who would honestly shell towns in Somalia have a lesser value for human life then the people they seek to murder, and would only make the situation worse. The United States is not the German 3rd Reich, we do not need to exterminate people and resort to brainless violence and slaughter. You people sound like a bunch of 13 year old militarized kids hopped up on energy drinks who play too much Halo and CoD.

    Inside Somalia. Piracy is NOT a big deal.

    Starvation is.
    Famine is.
    Lack of crops is.
    Rape is and so is murder.

    Piracy is nothing compared to that

    Or the fact Egyptians along with other countries have been enterting our waters and stealing out fishes.
    The correct response for me is to steal Egyptian and European ships in retaliation no?

    Just yesterday a Egyptian boat was found fishing illegally in Somali waters. What do you think the correct punishment is?

    Thus we agree on the problem.

    The solution will come when that changes. Somalis need to consider piracy a big deal, and they need to stop those of them that do it. The sooner the Somalis do that, the less likely it will be that boatloads of Somalis get killed.

    It's not a complex equation.

    Assuming the allegation is true, arrest the crew, confiscate the fish.

    Same logic i'm getting from this thread.

    My mind is blown by the ignorance.
    Why just the US? If your house is infested with bugs, you don't just have the exterminator in for one room....

    And that is where we differ.

    If US/Egypt/West cannot control it's companies ships entering other countries waters illegally. Somalis have every right to take it from them at will for breaking our laws.

    Or hang?
    I have little sympathy or patience with this. Confiscation does nothing and deters no one.

    Why should we?

    We have more important things to worry about. A few ships from billionaires being taken means very little and registers with no one in a country where people starve everyday.

    Perhaps our priorities differ ...
