Second Time! Pirates attack U.S. cargo ship

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Liberty Sun, a U.S.-flagged cargo ship bound for Mombasa, Kenya, was attacked Tuesday by Somali pirates, according to a NATO source with direct knowledge of the matter.
The pirates never made it onto the ship. The vessel is now being escorted by a coalition ship, still bound for Mombasa.
The source could provide no details on where the vessel was attacked but said it is suspected the pirates were based on a mother ship somewhere in the area.

I think it is time for our president to let our Navy do a little hunting.

What we need to do is covert a couple cargo ships into heavily armed vessles, of course looking like a plain run of the mill cargo ship, and let them sail around that area constantly. Then when these low lifes go to attack they are immediatly pummled. Then these guys wouldn't know which ships are which.......... The look on their faces when they start getting hammered by one of these ships= priceless.

First we put a boot in their ass. Now it's time to stomp a mudhole in it and walk it dry.

Yeah, this is just beginning.

Bush did send some troops in looking for Al Queda, but we are going to have to make some kind of military presence felt in that Country if we want this to stop. And we can't turn tail and run if we take a few casualties.

Piracy is costing hundreds of millions. Insurance rates are going up. Humanitarian aid is not getting to where it needs to go. This is an increasing problem, and it is NOT going to stop...

the fact that countries have been paying these guys off has fanned the flames of this issue. Now they see a payday. If the US keeps hammering them and makes some examples, then this activity will decrease.

The worst thing the US or anyone else would do is NOT DO ANYTHING.

This is exactly what I was going to say. Just take some container ship loaded with sand, and have it take its sweet-ass time chugging around the area. Then when the pirates come on board expecting to seize the helpless crew ... Nope -- Navy SEALs!

I also would support taking an old cargo ship and filling it with explosives, then parking it within sight of one of the pirate ports and waiting for someone to come try and take it over. I think you know how the rest goes. That would get their attention.

but yeah .. the basic idea is to get inside their heads. Like, if someone left a box of expensive cigars sitting right out where you could steal one, but every third one was an exploding cigar and you couldn't tell the difference, you might think twice about it.

Should put a couple subs in the area. Out of no where they go boom, make em afraid to even get in the water.

You know, this is exactly the kind of thing submarines were invented for. You may be on to something.
