Fighting the Pirates
by

In the wake of the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, the debate continues over what to do about the pirate threat. Occasional Spectator contributor Fred Iklé takes to the Washington Post today to argue for ships to simply arm themselves and kill any pirates that try to board the ship, in the name of self defense, while other reports indicate that the U.S. military is considering striking the pirates’ land bases. Personally, I’m open to the idea that limited military action can be justified, but I question whether the threat of piracy has risen to the level whereby such strikes are currently necessary. So, I’d be more inclined at this moment to support the first option. At least for now.
