Navy creates Anti-pirate task force

great.  talk about Johnny Come Lately.  today the navy unveiled plans for their new anti-pirate task force.  That's about 4 months too late for some of the crew of the Ukrainian tanker hijacked in September.  I guess they heard the news about India or China's new anti-pirate taskforces that made headlines last month.  i love how in the cnn article, the US navy say they expect other countries to come around and join the effort soon.

  1. So our navy should be responsible for protecting other countries? Should our military as a whole be responsible for protecting people in other countries? For example, people that are killed ruthlessly by a dictator? Like Iraq circa 2002?
