Somali pirates hijack oil tanker I'm up for suggestion. My current idea is for a three pronged offensive. 1. Talk other countries into a greater military role in the area. Hold joint exercises there with anyone you like. Brazil, Argentina, Canada, England, whoever has a Navy. 2. Time to get the U.N. to establish stability and economic opportunity bases on the Somali coast. It will be a form of Nation Building I suppose. 3. Encourage armed escorts for the big slow ships. Let Haliburton or whoever enjoy capitalism on the high seas.
