    How about some OTHER countries pitch in and irradicate the Somali pirates? I'm tired of the USA being the policemen of the world.

    No. But I think we should do something about these sickos after the killing of some of our people. Just go on over and take out some of their ships when we see them as a retaliation.

    Think about how difficult it is to find one specific little boat in a very big ocean, and at a very specific time. You would need to have a naval vessel escorting each and every commerical vessel (a wee bit of a pricey proposition). To really take care of the problem you'd have to do something that a lot of people are not in the mood for right now.

    You seldom see rowboats from Italy or France in the area.
