ARMING the cargo ships that cruise the Somali coast just seems so self evident a solution to this mess. The dunderheaded idiocy of the UN just defies imagination.
These pirates are not stupid. This is a money making operation. They weigh risks vs rewards. As long as the rewards outweigh the risks they will continue with piracy, and the world will wring its hands in horror and wail in indignation at the barbarity of the pirates.
Look folks, the world is an EVIL place. Sometimes you cannot reason with evil. You just have to kill them. Sorry to burst the bubble you live in.
GO SOUTH KOREA.
