My take on this: When the pirate’s mother ships are within range, take them out. I think a few missiles from the U.S. Navy ships could handle the siuation. We do not negotiate with terrorists, simple as that. If we lose Americans in a battle with pirates, it is no worse than losing our men and women in this Iraq war. We need to be peace-keepers, but so do other countries and they need to step up and help us when needed.
