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.

Most of them are kids desperate from poverty.

They dont fly a ships flag. So how do you plan identification?

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.

On 19 November 2008, the Indian Navy warship INS Tabar sank a suspected pirate mothership.[52] Later, it was claimed to be a Thai trawler being hijacked by pirates.[53] The Indian Navy later defended its actions by stating that they were fired upon first.
Looks like India beat us to it..and the UN Security Council approved the move.

Thank you for sidestepping the question...

Maybe you can answer it now?

Allow commerical vessels to hire well-armed security teams, and change them into kids desperate from having big holes in them.

A warm place with no memory.
Somali, Somali, Balony.
One sure way to stop it would be to drop the severed heads of pirates into the middle of the town square. But that ain't gonna happen.

The Useless UN should or could change this maritme law, couldn't it. I can see the value of not allowing vessels to have arms for fear of attacks from abroad, but this is a unique case where the situation is reversed.

Sorry. I think Ukotare has the right idea. Allow any vessel to have arms or security people aboard their vessels.
Why cant they now? I have read a few stories where they had weapons for defense, but for whatever reason didnt use them or the numbers they had were inadequate.

What a waste of a country. It is sad to see all those people living in squalor with no leader or director to show them a way out of poverty. This is where they need a Peace Corpse to start educating people in farming , basic education and trades to make a livng.

It's some type of maritime law that doesn't allow ships top have weapons. The reason is that could encourage another country to come and attack a sovereign country. The ship that had any weapons could be brought up on charges. By whom I don't know.
