    Seeing the size of the boats the pirates use, a few handgrenades for such instances would take care of the whole problem.

    But, let's just keep ignoring this issue and do nothing about it. Sure, there are ships from the navies of many countries cruising those waters now, but they need to do more than just that. Time to take things to the little rats that are doing this.
     
    Baack Thanks this.

    At the very least... supply these men with weapons. They have cost us enough money over the years. We know where these people are... but, Obama has a "Hugging" policy.
