Above ALL the Pirates need to know that we will NEVER put up with this again and that they have angered the WORLD and if needed we will occupy Somalia which neither of us want.

By not dealing with the criminals-pirates-terrorists quickly and decisively, the problem is about to escalate to huge proportions, involving many countries, the UN, etc., and it may go on escalating for weeks, or months (aka Jimmy Carter - Iranian hostage sitch). I don't see this as the FBI bruinging skill to the process - I see it as a lack of true leadership in the current administration. One thing I agree with is they should be honest with the pirates - tell them "we're going to arrest you for piracy no matter what you do from this point - if you kill the captain, then you will add murder to your the list of offenses.

It is very easy to say we will occupy Somalia .Somalia needs help not military action.

The word occupy does not always mean war and I said nothing of military... I was thinking we would send a bunch of our Mormons and Jehovah's to occupy their free time. HAHA! Military does not always have to be a negative thing. I tried to choose my words carefully. Even tho I am a treehugger/bushater I realize that our military is our backbone.
