Somali Pirates What We Should Do
Let'em Go, or Hang Them?
History has taught us that Pirates are a threat to the world's oceans and seas. Somali Pirates have been coddled by the worlds Navy's. They have been released to their ships, they have been returned to Somali, and finally three were killed and one returned to the US, tried, convicted and sentenced to 33 years in prison.
There is no need for the costs of catching, transporting, and taking these individuals to the US to stand trial and upon conviction incarcerate. We will spend millions of dollars for what, justice? I for one think not.
These crimes are committed on the high seas, US ships captains have the authority and power to catch, hold a trial aboard ship, and either execute, or incarcerate. The prisoner would remain aboard ship until its normal rotation to it's US port where prisoners will be sent to Guantanamo Bay to serve their term. Their ships destroyed and any actionable information on the pirates bases or support areas, may be immediately attacked by US forces, at the Ships Captains discretion.
Problem solved, no catch and release, immediate disposition of cases, if death followed by burial at sea, bases and safe havens destroyed. Pirates would be delt with immediately and harshly, but fairly. Their profession would no longer be a way to make money, but an immediate way to end their life.
Those that believe this is too harsh. I have one question, how harshly did the pirates treat the four elderly Americans that were killed in cold blood, for no reason of their own making?
