    ccw9mm, I object to your inference about the French. You may not be aware of it, but the French have killed several pirates recently. The GIGN is one of the most elite hostage-rescue forces the world has ever seen.

    Very true. The Foreign Legion is no joke either.

    So should the French. But then, they should also be a bit perturbed by the fact of less than full membership. It was a general reference to current-events and specifically to the French NATO command, with France finally deciding to become a full, participating member of NATO after more than 40yrs absent.

    They have many honorable individuals and forces but, like many countries (including my own), its political rationale for doing things often leaves much to be desired.

    I am French, 100%. So at least one French person objects to your statement. From what I have read, the French have taken more action against the pirates than anyone else, regardless of membership in NATO.

    Well, let's put it this way. The comment was directed not at honorable French; it was directed at that portion of France absent from NATO for 40yrs. For any mistaken identities that accidentally roped in others, I offer apologies. For any suggestion that I disbelieve in any and all capabilities in regards pirates merely because of this absence, I offer apologies. As for the rest ... cope.

    Thanks for the clarification. I agree with you. France should not have been absent from NATO, and I'm glad she's back. I will also be the first to agree that the French government is screwing up the country...but that is another story.

    That's all I'm sayin'. For what it's worth, I'm sure we can both agree that elected officialdom in the U.S. hasn't fared much better, on many scores. Such are the prerogatives of power, sad to say.

    Anyway. Here's to being armed ... always. Including folks who drive ships through dangerous waters.

    It seems the pirates think they are playing some sort of game. "We weren't trying to hurt anyone why did you shoot us?"

    If they get in the way of shipping too much, there is no way they are going to survive. Think about Panama. I think a shoot on sight policy for small ships off Somalia and a few days of well placed bombing would present an excellent option. If we have to play the game, might as well play it properly.

    Bombing would further endanger the hostages held on shore.

    I hate these pirates. It's making it very hard for me to know when I'll actually be able to get back home to my family.

    We should send the captured pirates to a bad place, like Somalia. Hmmm.

    This is what happens when a civilised nation is dealing with a 3rd world situation. I can't agree the civilised should just make them fish food (as that would be uncivilised, from a modern understanding).

    Capture (using deadly force if necessary), unarm, destroy pirates's ship, take them to the other end of their country, release to their government. No NATO or US military involvement. Let the private sector take care of it.
