IIRC the UN (lovingly called the "unforces" in many places) passed a resolution juts recently calling for naval forces from any and all member states to enter Somali territory in order to deal with the piracy, in the absence of any native capability to establish order.

Radical call for the UN.

Meanwhile, all the nations that require visiting yachts to be unarmed, refuse to step up to their responsibility to ensure safe transit wherever those disarmed yachts may be.
