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.

A Snippet from the article ...

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.
