Once again we create our own problems. And instead of trying to fix it, we just demonize those affected, and justify killing and beating the shit out of them.

And you wonder why people can hate America.

If the situation was the other way around, the pirates would have done the same thing. It doesn't matter what nationality you are. Humans will be humans.

I don't see how there could have been a reverse situation, but I'm talking about the overall condition of Somalia. Many Somalis have been driven to piracy because they are desperate for money. What are we doing to stop it? Sending the US Navy to blast them away.

If we held one of their important persons captive, would they have negotiated peacefully?

We can't exactly just hand them money either. We are in our own little shit hole right now. And we can't just ignore the piracy. Do you truly think, with all of humanity's violent past, that we would find a way for everyone to be happy? Some shit can't be avoided sadly :\

You also have to remember that the pirates had an AK-47 on the guys back.

We would never be in a situation like that, but eh.

I'm just annoyed because once again the US created its own problem.

It was hypothetical at best. We make our own problems. We are never handed them. We get into messes. It isn't like the US is purposely fucking with everyone. The US takes the course of action that is deemed the best in the situation. Even if it is a horrible choice, it is their only option. You can't really blame them for being dealt a lousy hand.

It isn't really a problem, the pirates showed no signs of letting the guy, so we popped them.
