The "catch and release" stuff is funny...'til I remember that it's no joke. Why should the Somali's alter their behavior if there is very little chance of paying severe consequences? Gee, I'm just a simple fellow, but it seems to me that pirate ships, once identified (and distinguished, for example, from legitimate fishing vessels), should be sunk as a matter of course. The fate of their crews? I dunno. Piracy used to be grounds for the noose.
