Use GPS to find and elimate the criminals. Missiles could blow them all to Kingdom Come if they came anywhere near decent people and return sanity to the Seas.

Pirates ?
We don't think so.

They are B. Hussein Obama's homeboy muslim terrorists.

He probably armed them, using American tax payers' money.

The tried and true way to deal with bandits, pirates and such is to take the offense. The tools are there, the community of nations (since pirates are indiscriminate) just needs to decide to eliminate the threat. Waiting around to catch them in the act is ineffective, hit them where they live.

Once sober people begin blowing them out of the water on sight all will be right again. Like all vermin, the pirate thugs must be exterminated.

Piracy is an act of robbery or criminal violence at sea. The term can include acts committed on land, in the air, or in other major bodies of water or on a shore. Priacy is a relatively small scall criminal act for economic gain. Don't mistake it with the orgainzed, large scale economic explotation of one country or society by another.

When the nation states decide to stop it they can.
