YMC you are right on America acting like America again. Even if the pirate thing is small money-wise to us, we have a reputation to uphold.

Thru military means we can control the symptom but the underlying disease is still there. The root cause of the piracy is still there. This looks like a job for the UN and not a job for a lone U.S. plan.

It comes down to more than simply arming U.S. flagged vessels. Having a U.S. citizen on a non-U.S. flagged vessel captured by pirates is almost as bad, P.R.-wise. All ships in that area should have robust armed forces aboard. Is this the place to use the unemployed people from the Blackwater company?

Who pays for it? The shipping companies see a better deal by not paying to arm. Just pay the occasional pirate ransom. So, do we have the tax payer pay for the armed personnel? Ultimately the consumer pays whether it is via taxes or thru higher oil prices.
