You pile up enough bodies in Somalia and things like this will stop happening,
The bodies of the four Americans are on board the carrier Enterprise off the Horn of Africa, according to Central Command. The names of the Southern California couple are Scott and Jean Adam, boaters who were based out of Marina Del Rey.]
Four U.S. Navy ships had been shadowing the Quest after it was taken over by the pirates, Mattis said. While negotiations were underway to gain the release of the Americans, U.S. forces responded to gunfire aboard the Quest. The four Americans had been shot, Mattis said.
Two of the pirates were killed by U.S. forces and 13 captured, Mattis said. After boarding the Quest, military personnel found the bodies of two other pirates.
Here’s an idea: Why don’t we send a few warships, Seal teams, and predators to the coast of Somalia? You see some guys in a speedboat with a rocket launcher? Put a missile in it. You know the pirates are showing up at a particular village? Show up, rough up all the men, search all the houses, interrogate anyone who looks suspicious, and line everyone up you think is a pirate and put a bullet in their heads.
These pirates are threatening American shipping. They’re attacking and killing American citizens. Those are acts of war and if the government of Somalia isn’t capable of stopping it, we certainly are capable of doing it.
If we harass, threaten, and kill enough pirates, they will start to avoid American shipping like it’s made out of Ebola. It’s something we should be doing.
