Way to Treat a Pirate Part Deux

I was going to post this in the original thread...but it's closed...so here it is. Today on Lectronic Latitude..Latitude 38 authors reported that the EU (European Union) made a substantial and successful raid on pirate nests destroying numerous vessels of the Somali pirate fleet. All with the approval and support of the Somalian government. There was no reported casualties.
You can read the article if you google Lectronic Latitude...it should come up..

Re: WAY TO TREAT A PIRATE PART DEUX

somewhat old news as it happened on 15 May heres a link
Somali Pirates: EU Naval Forces Target Bases On Mainland In Air Strikes | World News | Sky News

given the changed rules of engagement now allow EUNAVFOR to carry out land attacks, we should see a rapid removal of the pirates means to carry out attacks.

Too bad. They'll just build new boats and be back at it soon enough.
