Just kill the pirates!

Why aren't the world's navies simply blowing up the pirates' ships/boats...?

Just send a few planes to bomb the somali ports... and blow up any boat that looks remotely like a pirate ship...

ct,
good question. why dont ships carry guns on them? how do 5 guys capture an entire ship? and are these pirates that hard to find?
I agree with you; Blow up their bases!

Hmm... there is snag in that idea..

Pirate ships are hard to distinguish from other regular ships....

Bombing port, there are other regular innocent people involved.

Bombing any ship the pirates are on...There are hostages involved. If the hostages are simply sacrificed... can you imagine advertising for those positions? There is the tricky thing of bombing a ship full of ammunition, wouldn't that be like stepping into a closet and throwing a grenade?

You may be onto something here...this strategy could have been used in Zimbabwe.

Piracy is illegal... so killing pirates is acceptable... sort of how cops kill robbers...

If a ship has somalis on it, yes... blow it out of the water. Yes, innocents will die by bombing the ports but perhaps trade will benefit. Also many sailors' lives will be saved.

Warn any hostile ship not to approach. A friendly ship will let you know... and then shoot the pirates!

I've a feeling Hollywood bigwigs are following the story and already smelling movie.

CT,
are you following the twists in this tale? it turns out the t-72 tanks and the antiaircraft guns and ammo belong to 'an anonymous buyer in southern sudan', not the GoK nor the Juba Government.

its all too absurd to be believed. and poor alfie mutua is once again caught with his foot in the mouth!

...not to mention that the somalis are from TWO different clans, and are rumoured to be bickering as the pressure mounts...

actually it's not illegal the un passed a resolution that allows any country that has been attacked to pursue the pirate on sea or on land

Steve. How can you be contacted. I'm sick of the US playing games. The FBI is a great information and statistics generating organization, but not a great crime fighter. Let's go after these pirates! Enough of this pussy footing. I'm in. I have some money to fund and willing to join. Reply with a link to an email or site so we can remain anonymous.

Lets carpet bomb the area. Steam roll everything and let the Israelis create a nice seaside resort.

Let's send them Andy Da--l-k and Orest Pe--ha-y in exchange for the hostages.

Andy and Orest could then kill them all with their secret medical techniques.

Kill, Kill, Kill the savages!

Fu-k the muslim pirate scumbags!

Cut their di-ks off!

Boil their nuts in vinegar and make them eat them!

Is this what Mohammed taught them?

Kill them all! Blow up their homes and sink all their ships!

Yes, this is what Muhammad taught. If not for oil, Allah would be no more. Once oil is gone, no more Allah and his prophet. Good for world.

Gyrocopters are the answer, cheap, can take off from a tanker. They could be used to circle in the air and attack any boat which comes to close to the tanker. Height offers great protection from small arms fire.
