SEALs 3: Pirates: big fat 0.
How would you like to be the pirate on USS Bainbridge? Suddenly everybody is pointing a gun except for you. Oh man, damnit! Don't you feel stupid? But, really, how did you think this was going to end?
Way to go, Navy. Well done.
Now, it's time to quit fucking around and do the job.
No more bullshit. No more discussion. No more UN meetings and memos and sanctions.
Deploy the fleet and clean these bastards out. We know where they are, we know how they operate, we know where they're based. International law regarding piracy on the high seas is clear and it is long past time to erradicate these lawless bastards like the vermin they are.
Surrendar and face the gallows, or be blown from the water. Period.
I have more than a bit of experience in this area and I'll have some detailed thoughts up on this tomorrow. In the meantime CW, who is also experienced in this subject, over on Refugees From the City has a couple of excellent posts up.
