Limited Military

Secretary of Defense Robert Gates goes to show how he got to keep his job under Obama:
He also noted that there was no purely military solution to piracy in the region.
Oh I beg to differ. There certainly isn't any "deliver the pizza" style military mission that will work, but I'm sure a couple thousand daisy cutters would clear that supposedly pressing pirate issue right up.
As long as you've got this incredible number of poor people and the risks are relatively small, there's really no way in my view to control it unless you get something on land that begins to change the equation for these kids.
Daisy cutters go "on land" don't they?
