PIRATES?

What are you freaking kidding me? The taxes I pay we have "pirates" grabbing oil tankers?

How freaking tough can it be to stick an Aegis over there and drop a missile through their little speedboats?

How about a few Predator drones patrolling those areas. All the fun without the risk.

I would settle for a couple of those electric gatling guns, like they put on the choppers, on each tanker. SOme RPGs would work well, as well.

I'm thinking that we have a volunteer pirate-fighting force right here!

You want to blow up the hostages too? Also I think the ships and their cargoes are too valuable. I heard on the BBC World Service that there is a fishing village in Somalia where luxury homes are springing up and 4x4's are arriving on the back of the hijackings out there. Not only that but restaurants/catering facilities are also springing up to provide the hostages with the food of their particular country since these foreign crews aren't necessarily partial to Somali cuisine. The food is then shipped out to the hostages. A whole economy based on hijacking ships!

Huh? Catered food? Who the heck is buying the oil? Shell or Mobile?

Wordster, also heard that because of the crude oil cargo if the ships were to be blown up, it would be another environmental disaster like we have seen before-Linda

Hey people! I think Smaugs idea (and mine) was to blow the PIRATE boats up, not the hi-jacked ships,,,Jeeez!

Yes, I clumsily hid it by saying 'little speedboats".

They grabbed this one 450 miles out to sea. So make it a "no-fly" zone and bang a missile through anything that shows up on satellite without permission.

Pirates. Jesus....

I thought this was going to be a thread about Johnny Depp til I realized Smaug started it.

I missed this - too busy working like dog today (as always) - I didn't want to click on my Yahoo Finance page because it's too depressing watching the stock market...but guess I'll go check out this story -- and gas down to 1.79 today here....

With this sissy coming into the White House expect more of it. They are getting rid of Guantonomo Bay, I'd release all those terrorists to a leper colony. I'd actually do a lot more interesting things to those lousy bastards but this is America and we're civilized. It's amazing, they can cut our heads off and publically burn us and we feed them gourmet food. In Viet Nam, Korea, WWII and any other conflict, the U.S. and our allies endured every violation of the Geneva Convention. The only time anything was done in retaliation was after the conflict in a court. Right now in Iraq and Afghanistan the opposition violates every rule of war by not wearing a uniform. The Russians couldn't win after ten years in Afghanistan, neither will we. A sure way to stop Afghanistan is to use some agent orange type chemical and destroy the heroine fields. That would be common sense, they control 90% of that drug worldwide. Only trouble is, if anyone did mess with those fields there would be daily terrorist attacks all over the U.S. and our allies (that's a fact). I have to go to downtown Chicago soon so I am going to leave my resume with Brother Barry and don't be surprised when PapermanBill becomes our next Secretary of Defense.

An Indian naval vessel attacks a suspected "mother ship" and chases two other boats.

I think I'm with the Russians Seems their Idea voiced in a NATO meeting was to establish an internatonal force, go into Somalia, nd get rid of these thugs. Of course, NATO did not agree. again GESUS!! Linda

I'm not a "boots on the ground" guy for our young people in the armed forces. We don't need a bunch of Blackhawk Downs to deal with naval threat.

We have satellites and missiles. Why do we need an Indian warship to bump into these sleezes and have to fight a sea battle?
