    Concerning Islamic piracy:

    Perhaps a revisiting of history would be instructive.

    Soon after the news about the attack became public, Wilkerson e-mailed reporters saying that he found U.S-led efforts at deterring pirates to have failed. U.S. political leaders have to "get off their asses" and wage war on the pirates, like the Marines did against the Barbary pirates in the early 19th century, Wilkerson wrote.

    He suggests the U.S. lead a force to find the pirates' hide-outs in Somalia and destroy them.
