Sigh.

See my above post. I am not actually against force or military action in this situation if it is deemed to be effective. I believe I have said that several times now.

Death is a way of life in Somalia........the death of insignificant kids at sea would be seen as unlucky and no worse than 1000 deaths that would face them if they didn't become pirates.

You really think if we started executing the kids in the boats this will deter the millionaire warlords????

Give me a break.
