I guess everyone has read or seen in the news about the piracy of the U.S. ship "Maersk Alabama" off the coast of Somalia this past week. I would like to know what your opinions are on this subject.
What do you think the governments of the world should do to prevent pirates from hijacking ships on the high seas? How far do you think the navies of the world should go to rescue ships and their crews from these pirates.
Who should try pirates for their crimes? And, what sentences should pirates get if caught and convicted?
