After all, its not like a European country is going to want to take and hold a current staging base for small boats engaged in piracy on the coast of Somalia, since its a game of whack-a-mole that the European country cannot win, so if the name of the game is to take out a pirate base that has been uncovered, that's something that jump jets and attack helicopters would do.
