While I agree that something ought to be done, I can see why there's been no concerted military action. Surely the navies of the world can't fix this. Anything short of a job-building program in anarchic Somalia wouldn't even begin to address the problem. Our past results occupying the country aren't encouraging and if America were to lead it after six years in Iraq we'd have to send troops straight from the mental hospital.
