Taking the Fight to the Pirates

The Dutch are doing it:

On March 23 the European Union decided to extendoperation EU NAVFOR until December 2014. At the same time the AOR has also been extended to include Somali coastal territory and internal waters.

On April 3 their operation plan has been adjusted accordingly. Soon after that, the Dutch government has decided that they will act according to the new operational plan. The Dutch have wanted this extention for quite some time now.
And to be effective against pirates, the Dutch had also agreed last year to put helicopters on every ship they would send to the Horn of Africa.

I'm a Naval Officer living in Southern California. I hope to be attending law school in the next year or two, and I started writing this blog out of a desire to improve my writing and critical thinking skills after a couple years outside of academia.
