Seeing all these stories about piracy around Indonesia and such made me remember a scene from an old John Wayne movie. Any one remember "Operation Pacific" where Wayne is a submarine officer in WWII? There is a scene where the sub commander is killed by a cargo ship that has hidden guns to lure subs in range and sink them with all the guns hidden behind fake panels. That's what we need to do. Rig out a small freighter to look loaded with cargo, have several fake panels with 20mm cannons and other armaments, along with several dozen Marines and S.E.A.L.s, and when a boat of pirates come along side, just open up. Leave whats left as a warning for other pirates. Be as ruthless and coldblooded as they are.
