Who will play Birnam Wood to their Macbeth?

The whole Somali pirate business seems rather weird. OK, they seem to be a thriving business opportunity. On the other hand they do seem sometimes more akin to the pirates in Asterix than the ones in Pirates of the Caribbean.

But Ted Rall, as is so often the case, manages to ask the obvious question. And I have no idea of the answer. Hell, if India can do it, why can't the rest of us? I would have thought for exanmple that the introduction into the marine ecosystem of a hunter-killer submarine would have proved decisive.
