The United Nations Security Council has unanimously approved a US resolution allowing countries to pursue Somali pirates on land as well as at sea. About damned time now all they need is permission from the Somali government.

Full BBC article here ...

A Snippet from the article ...

"Pirates cannot be keelhauled or forced to walk the plank, nor should they be dumped off the Somali coast."

and WHY NOT say I ....

I'm in two minds about this. While I think a land pursuit is probably the most effective way of recovering the $$ the pirates have stolen (and ransom counts as stealing in my book), I think the actual long term solution is to deny them access to the sea. Stick an aircraft carrier in the area and see how they like that.
