Stop the paid ransoms = stop the pirates. Pirating occurs for one reason and one reason only: money.
Stopping ransom payments either means hostages will suffer or cruisers/merchants must avoid the Indian Ocean all together. This is much easier said than done and is the crux of the issue.
Maybe if there was some oil under Somalia we could find a quick solution?
