Whenever, in history, there has been a weak government there have been pirates on the seas.
Many people would, perhaps, say that we can't stop or fight an abstract concept like 'piracy'; that we need to address the 'root of the problem'
of why someone would become a pirate. But, of course, this is wrong, and governments have previously been able to stop these marauders by fighting
The US itself fought an extensive pirate war in tripoli. Perhaps its time to do it around the horn.
