On another note; it is not true that Somali pirates only operate from shore in Yemini waters. They are now reported to be operating from larger (mother) ships in areas 200 miles from the coast. That was the case with the Alabama; it was over 200 miles from shore when it was captured. The motorized skiffs did not venture 200 miles from the Somali coast - they were transported by a larger ship. THOSE are the ships the U S Navy should be going after.
