Just imagine how big the skinnies' eyes would get when they saw a torpedo coming up from the deep
The first time you allow them to evacuate the main boat (and confiscate their weapons), then make them watch you sink it.

After that, it's a free for all. Sink the mother ship first again, then pluck all of the isolated boat at your leisure.

so maybe the SEALS have a job to do after all...hooyah
I saw that. Well, if they are dumb enough to allow unarmed civilians to retake their stolen ship, they are incompetent enough to die at the hands of an elite rescue team.

When was the last time you ever heard of Spec. Ops. actually doing a prisoner exchange??

I say, send a Navy Seal unit to get the hostage and blow up the boat.

Then take one of our battleships out of mothballs and let loose the cannons.

There is ALWAYS a need for a couple battleships to be kept around!!

no no no - the way to stop pirates is you hang em when you catch them, cut off their heads and leave them on a stake outside their village.

the other pirates eventually get the message

Actually, employ Roman/Israeli tactics. Next time they hijack a ship, blow the ship up, Pirates and captives included.

They'll never hijack another ship again.

While it would be hard for me to condone it, it would work.

I don't understand why, they don't just track these guys after they leave, trace them back to their "underground lairs" and then seek and destroy.

"Yeah, sure, here's your millions of dollars, you are free to go!!" Just don't pay any attention to that red dot following you...

Isn't this the first American ship they've done this too?

My guess is you aren't far off what will actually happen in retaliation...

This is what I've been wondering.

If you know you're going anywhere near Africa, what on earth is stopping anyone with half a brain from just bolting a couple of machine guns to the ship. This whole thing could've been prevented if they'd spent, like, half an hour thinking about basic self-defense.
