      Everyone is benefitting so there is not much incentive to stop it. Why don't the shipping companies take the money they are paying to insurance companies and start an industry to recuit and employ Somalis who have become pirates due to not having many other options. The Somalis can be paid to be private security to protect their own waters.

      Exactly. "Prate hunting" is like bass fishing. Catch and release policies ensures the population of prates does not diminish over time. The rules of engagement make military forces useless, which is why shipping companies should just turn to mercenaries to deal with the issue.

    The majority of people have no idea just how lucrative and dangerous piracy is in the areas mentioned in this documentary. Additionally, people do not realize just how vast and open these areas are and how much "action" is going on across such a huge area. I spent many years helping to defend from piracy in those areas and it was at a minimum once a week we were engaging and being engaged by pirates. Our main goal was to immobilize/destroy their vessels as quickly as possible and often times we would deal collateral casualties to the crew of those pirate vessels, the pirates really never stood a chance, but they were determined and it was heartbreaking to watch them fight for nothing in the end. I am now retired from it all and some things still haunt me to this day. EDIT: This documentary was great and it still only shows a "taste" of how every day "business" really is. Unfortunately, people will do horrible things for money/wealth.

If they start doing that, then that's my sympathy gone, and I say take whatever action is needed to stop them for good. The ransoms that have been paid already to these pirates should allow all of the pirates and their friends and families and relatives to live well ... no need to escalate things and continue to go around attacking vessels and hurting people. It's just greed of the part of the pirates. Blaming the USA and Europe for depleting their fishing is ridiculous lies.

      its just like the wars in the middle east creating a beast of an insurgency over the last 25 years
      its not somalia's fault, its the west's fault. humanitarian aid would be much more effective a quelling the piracy problem, because desperate people do desperate things. they are backed into a corner, commit piracy, or you and your family starve. they arent evil, they dont harm the hostages 99/100 times.

    I know a soldier who works in the counter task force. On his last deployment they had a boat shooting at them so the opened fire and sunk the dingy and killed a few of the pirates and wounded one guy.
    After the firefight they had to save the surviving pirates from drowning.
    No countries in the vacinity wanted to take the pirates into jail and charge them with piracy (costs noone wants) so they all ended up being set free at sea in swimming distance from the shore exept the one wounded guy who needed medical attention.
    Because of rules of engagement the wounded pirate ended up being transported all the way to scandinavia (where the soldiers came from) to get treated AND charged with crimes of piracy. -And yes, being wounded he was the only one getting charged for crimes while the others was set free because of bureaucracy...
    Whats is the funny but absurd outcome? -The danish state is required to help the pirate heal and literally get back on his feet... So the pirate is getting a wooden leg paid for by my taxes...

    If there is no law about owning weapons in international waters, there should also be no laws prohibiting the confiscation of these weapons. If it's a lawless land, anything goes. One suggestion is to control the movement of the pirates and when it is time for them to attack a ship, sink their vessel, with or without them on board. For big problems, big solutions.

      this is a problem caused by the west, from over fishing and illegal bilge dumping destroying the fish population where people depend on that.
      its just like the wars in the middle east creating a beast of an insurgency over the last 25 years
      its not somalia's fault, its the west's fault. humanitarian aid would be much more effective a quelling the piracy problem, because desperate people do desperate things. they are backed into a corner, commit piracy, or you and your family starve. they arent evil, they dont harm the hostages 99/100 times.

    It seems as though the concept of deterrent is somewhat misunderstood in certain quarters, in fact the current method provides encouragement by making sure that even if the pirates fail to takeover a vessel, they get a nice packed lunch for the trip home.
    I can't see many of the pirates saying, 'Never again.......'
    If the reaction fits the crime, in this case the message is clear, piracy isn't a big deal, it's a misdemeanour, nothing more.

Deterrent by strong punishment is not as effective as you might think, in fact it may make your adversaries more dangerous if the threat is death. The people who become pirates most likely don’t do so for fun but rather necessity.. if you had the choice between certainly dying of poverty/hunger/thirst or dying in an attempt to rob someone else… but then those people, with you on your knees ready to die in your failure, show mercy and compassion and HELP YOU? Or on the other side, would you execute them? Is that a war crime? Think a little harder about being a human, and the true complexity of this situation. Please.

      There are two ways to deal with pirates. The western version is coddle these pirates with care and comfort. Even feeding these pirates with culturally sensitive food items. The wealthy owners of these shipping companies couldn't care any less about the captured crews.
      Or, the Russian way. Remove the pirate crew from the skiff, comfort and care is of no concern. Remove all weapons or anything that may be used as a weapon. Put the pirates back into their skiff, along with some explosive devices. Let the pirates float some distance away. Then a sound like a Kaboom is off in the distance. No pirate problem.

      Not true, pirates mostly used small vessels even in the golden age of piracy.
      Canoes and small sloops, basically a big rowboat with sails, were the most common pirate ships. Their general thought was 10 men with muskets do as much damage as a medium size cannon.
      Just like now they used night and currents to bring themselves close to vessels then quickly board and subdue the crew, who just like back in the day, are not soldiers and are not looking to fight for someone else's goods.

    They need to build a bar around the ship - one that would be 1" around - one that would be easy for pirates to hook their ladder to - when they start climbing up the ladder, send a strong current thru the bar - one that would kill all pirates who would be on the ladder.

      bro this comment section is full of idiots. "just make sure the pirates never are seen again" yea because that worked so well throughout history
      this is a problem caused by the west, from over fishing and illegal bilge dumping destroying the fish population where people depend on that.
      its just like the wars in the middle east creating a beast of an insurgency over the last 25 years
      its not somalia's fault, its the west's fault. humanitarian aid would be much more effective a quelling the piracy problem, because desperate people do desperate things. they are backed into a corner, commit piracy, or you and your family starve. they arent evil, they dont harm the hostages 99/100 times.

      Probably because that would also require the crew to be either trained in the use of firearms, or the company would have to hire bodyguards. Which is another expenditure. And unfortunately, despite the fact that these corporations probably make billions of dollars every week, they never seem to be willing to shell out the money for a few guys trained in the use of weapons. Despite the fact that I can tell you right now, there are probably hundreds if not thousands of veteran soldiers from various military’s that would be happy to lend their services.

      This doc is from 2009. Since then, there has been an industry shift to allow and encourage armed private security. They compares initially were weary to employ private armed force, and it took a while for them to come around. No ship with armed guards has successfully been taken by pirates. Due to an industry shift toward armed security and a change of politics ashore that led to an anti-piracy campaign in Puntland (the region of Somalia where pirates were launching from) there has been no successful attack since 2014.
