Good for them! Take down these ruffians. Do it the way the Brits did back in the 18th century. Blow their ships and hang all survivors.

At least one nation had the guts to destroy some pirates. This is getting ridiculous and I bet Bush won’t allow offensive actions in the waning days of his presidency.

Good. Piracy in that part of the world is simply out of control. Send a very clear message. Daily if needed.

Too bad they let the two speed boats get away. Those who escaped will only find another “mother ship” to operate from.

A shadowing small LHA that killed and sank the craft of these pirates for about 6 months straight would put quite an end to much of this.

That depends on where they were at the time of the sinking. Being small craft, they would likely have a short range, especially if they burned most of their fuel being chased by the Indians.

Heh. Drifting, thirsty and exposed, not a bad end for scumbags.

You got to love the Indians. We should all be doing this.

Shoot first, ask questions later... If at all...

They have an entire pirate village, or enclave where they are anchoring that supertanker.

Here's what needs to happen to that village of pirates.
