Been watching a documentary of the World's Navies addressing the problem of Somali Pirates, I see that the policy is, when they are attacking Merchant shipping, is to warn them with warning shots etc.
My view is, if they are committing Piracy on the high seas, why warn them? they know what they are doing is wrong, more than likely they will be sent back to wherever they come from, and start all over again.
I say blow the perishers up, sink their boats, what say you lot?

A few Bushmaster rounds on target would do the job imo.
I had to Google that... Now that's a gun I wouldn't mind using.

Well it's nicer sinking the ship so you don't bushmaster them directly to death if you're a bit squeamish though.

Is that the poor bugger who does just shoot the Pirates will be up on a charge in 4o years time.
