I personally think this has gone on too long and should have started kicking these guys butts a long time ago. It's about time.




BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union's naval force off the Somali coastline on Tuesday carried out its first air strikes against pirate targets on shore, officials said.
Maritime aircraft and attack helicopters
took part in the attacks early in the morning on the mainland, a
spokesman said. No casualties were reported in the raid, which occurred
along Somalia's central coastline in the region of Galmudug.
The
long coastline of war-ravaged Somalia provides a perfect haven for
pirate gangs preying on shipping off the East African coast.
The EU is the main donor to the Somali transitional government.
It is also trains Somali army troops, and is reinforcing the navies of
five neighboring countries to enable them to counter piracy themselves.
"This
action against piracy is part of a comprehensive EU approach to the
crisis in Somalia, where we support a lasting political solution on
land," said Michael Mann, spokesman for EU foreign policy chief
Catherine Ashton.
Since
December 2008, the EU has kept 5-10 warships off the Horn of Africa in
an operation known as Atalanta. NATO has a similar anti-piracy flotilla
known as Ocean Shield, and other countries — including the United
States, India, China, Russia, and Malaysia — also have dispatched naval
vessels to patrol the region.
The
EU naval force is responsible for the protection of World Food Program
ships carrying humanitarian aid for Somalia, and the logistic support
vessels of the African Union troops conducting operations there. It also
monitors fishing activity off the coast of Somalia, which has been without a functioning government since 1991, when dictator Mohamed Siad Barre was overthrown.
In
March, the EU adopted a more robust mandate for its naval force,
allowing it for the first time to mount strikes against pirate targets
on Somalia's "coastal territory and internal waters." At the time,
officials said the new tactics could include using warships or their
helicopters to target pirate boats moored along the shoreline, as well
as land vehicles or fuel tanks used by the pirates.
The EU did not say which member nation's forces carried out Monday's raid.
But
two months ago, the Atalanta force was joined by French amphibious
assault ship Dixmude. The 21,000-ton ship, the largest to serve with the
EU mission, is capable of acting as a mobile operating base for 16
choppers — including Tigre helicopter gunships — significantly adding to
the reach of the naval force.

I had a fundraiser last Friday for captured South Africans and the Somali Pirates brought their original ransom of $14 million down to $8 million. That is R64million in our local currency.

I feel like calling some of my friends who "operate" across the world to just take them out and resolve it!

Thanks for this article, Rick152. Ya know those drones the government is planning to fly over American cities to do surveillance? I suggest we should redirect them and take out the Somali pirate vessels one by one. No muss, no fuss.
