I think there must have been a translation error...as except in very few instances, yachts aren't ships.

But the real situation at hand is that the somali pirates are extending their range both in terms of distance and types of vessels captured.

And the fact that they're now holding kids as hostage is despicable.

The key word in all this new piracy is: SOMALIA. It's not Kenyan piracy or Yemani piracy or Madagascar piracy....it is SOMALIA.

So why does the UN not form a joint-effort and take over Somalia? Make that counry an example of what happens to pirates.

I am about the last person to ever call for military action, but this Somalia piracy is getting ridiculous.
