Question: These attack have occurred hundreds of miles of the coast, 600mi in the latest incident I believe. So the pirates are operating out of a larger base ship? - probably a stolen commercial vessel? If that's the case then it should be an easy matter of finding and sinking them....no?

It's one thing if you're making hit and run attacks in a high speed skiff with the safety of the coast to run to, but if your in a giant stolen freighter flying a flag that's not yours - how hard is it to find, board, and check that all is in order?

There's a big difference between a rouge coast you should avoid and piracy on the high seas. What seems to be the problem here?
