Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As long as there are failed states along major shipping routes and desperate people living in the failed states with access to small boats, its not as if taking out a particular hot spot for pirate activity is going to provide anything by temporary relief. One set of "these people" are "taught their lesson" by killing them, somewhere else along the coast an entirely different set of "these people" gives it a try.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
