This is an international problem and there should be an international solution. In any case, the US is justified to confront these thugs when they attack an American flagged vessel. At 300 miles from shore, they should just sink them by whatever means works, ramming or laser guided missiles or anything in between. It is ok with me if the pirates avoid American ships due to likely adverse consequences and prey on ships flagged in other nations who would rather pay ransoms, but it would be more orderly if the seas were not populated with pirates.
