In fairness, Ron has a point. Our gutless polititions have restricted our navy to a defensive posture of striking only when they hijack a vessel of U. S. flag. If we were serious, we would send in the Marines to clean out the pirates' bases and sink any vessel identified as a "mother ships" upon its sighting -- and then we would keep going to clean the rest of the bad actors out of Somalia and establish a legitimate government there so the problem would not recur.
