Enough is enough. The international community of nations must take strong and definitive action against Somolia. What the UN should do (note I said "should" do; not that I think the UN will do anything other than wringing its hands) is give the pirates an reasonable deadline to release all 600+ hostages and lay down their arms. If they fail to do so, sent in an international military force and establish a protectorate over Somolia. We don't need to control the entire country; just the coastal areas and towns. But for far too long now no one has dared to do anything. All we have done is give reasons why we should do nothing. We look only at the consequences of action; we never look at the consequences of inaction. If this piracy is not stopped it will just get worse. I am interested in other views or solutions.
