EagleSpeak: Somali Pirates: More sophisticated than you thought

EagleSpeak: Somali Pirates: More sophisticated than you thought: "It is time for the Task Force 150 to start escorting ships en route to and from Bab-el-Mandeb (the southern entrance to the Red Sea) and to Somalia and Aden in convoys, while preparing for decisive naval action against the buccaneers. Naval powers with much at stake must recognize the growing problem and act decisively to deter and defeat the pirates.

In the longer term, the whole Somalia 'pirate coast' would need to be brought under control. It will need to be done by the Somali central government with more robust support from the African Union, Western government, and the United Nations. The rule of law, and alternative sources of employment, such as agriculture; fishing; pearl, aquaculture, and yes, tourism, will need to be developed."

Being Muslims, they must be peaceful pirates at least. These Somali pirate monkeys are out of control. They go out for weeks in little rickety boats with just weapons and water and eat raw fish they catch and keep hijacking bigger then bigger, then bigger boats.

These terrorist monkeys must be exterminated with extreme prejudice. Several drones into their camps when they're fat and happy celebrating their new money should do the trick.

Lots of great Pirate coverage over at Dinah Lord:

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
don't exterminate pirates

seizing ships for ransom
everybody gets rich

.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
let pirates operate

you will get cut of ransom
and maybe some weapons too

Stupid pirates. This seems like a good time to test a chemical weapon. Too bad we destroyed them all.

Maybe we can borrow some from Syria or Iran?
