These ships should be contracting private security forces if they want to operate in the Gulf of Aden (and the west coast of Africa in general). Pirates should be sent to the bottom of the ocean, not home with stolen money. Since it's clear there are no governments willing to tackle the problem, individuals should be given the chance to step up to the plate.

Maybe we need to take a page from WW2 and start putting Q-Ships on the Somali front. Once they're not sure which vessels are actually warships, they might be more hesitant to attack. --CyberStormAlpha (talk) 09:05, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
