Sunday, April 26, 2009 | Concerning the piracy going on off the Somalian coast, I wonder if we just couldn’t have “sea marshalls” (like the “sky marshalls”)? Put 3 or 4 service men on each ship armed with large caliber guns and blow those pirates out of the water. We would probably only have to shoot 2 or 3 little boats and the pirates would get the point quickly.
The reason I recommend our service men is that they are already being paid (perhaps a “hazardous sea pay stipend” could be added). Thus, no HUGE cost to our “budget”.
