"Lemme think about it. No."
A man who claims the position of Somali Prime Minister-- a position so week that he lives in Virginia, and meets in Nairobi, Kenya rather than in Mogadishu-- begs us to give him resources for his country to hunt down the pirates themselves.
Now why would we want to do that?
A: If his nation can't generate the will to fight such offenses on their own, then we don't need to be making them gifts of naval armament, and
B: Why should we wish to deprive our Navy of a righteously target-rich environment?
My answer to the request, through diplomatic channels, would be,
"No. And on a completely unrelated note, you might want to keep your loved ones out of certain Somali ports over the next couple of months. We will take your request for assistance as formal permission to rout the problem ourselves. KayThnxBai!"
