Just came across an article related to a US senator's visit to Somalia. What is especially positive is, what he says about it, such as

We need a coordinated strategy now because this is rapidly spinning out of control

or negative when he suggests

worldwide ban on paying ransoms

No question, ransoms feed the fad, yet I wish he had one of his relatives held hostage by those pirates.

The problem continues to expand and nothing is being done to actually slow it down. Before anyone tries to stop the payouts though, he should think of some far more reaching solutions, not the least of which being the elimination of the underlying problem, or the chaos driven country of Somalia. It is Somalia that needs help first.
