Somali Pirates and the Oil Supply
Some of the students here at the Naval War College have done some excellent work on possible solutions--I hope to be sharing them with you soon.
Now is the time for the international community to revisit Somalia after the long neglect from the early 90s. A political solution and nation rebuilding program needs to be put in place over the long run.
I hope the recent piracy incidents will serve as a call to action because to neglect this moment will have been a wasted opportunity
The US and the UN tried nation-building (hell state-building anyway) back in the 90s.
Remember how well that turned out?
