Pirates Attack American Flagged Ship

I will do my best not to use pirate slang because this is a serious issue. Is this the first time they've attacked a ship under U.S. flag? If so, then Obama needs to send a very strong message, by parking a fleet of battleships on their coast. Maybe an aircraft carrier or two. Issue a verbal warning to the Somali govt., whatever that is. Tell them, "You stop the piracy, or we'll sink every ship in your harbor. Maybe I'm too aggressive. Is the U.N. doing anything about it? Lots of questions. Just heard on the news they took the Captain hostage. Kidnapping an American citizen from a ship under the U.S. Flag. Maybe it's a good thing I'm not president, because that sounds like an act of war to me. Maybe I should flip the coin and look at the pirate point of view, their economy is far worse than ours, maybe this is how they feed their families? This is why I ask if the UN is doing anything, could they or do they already send aid? Sounds to me like Somalia is out of control. I don't know how to judge this one, I have zero experience with maritime law, biggest boat I've ever been on was a row boat. Maybe we should look at the Caribbean history and how those provincial govts. solved the problem. Military escorts perhaps? I dunno but I eagerly await Obamas response! AFT
