The Good: Dutch commandos operating under NATO authority raid a pirate ship and rescue 20 Yemeni fishermen. The Bad: The Dutch then release seven captured pirates because NATO has no authority to arrest pirates.
I'll admit to suffering a John Bolton moment at the news that North Korea had, once again, threatened to drop out of the Six Party talks and restart its nuclear program. This nonsense will never end; it's pretty clear that the North Korean leadership hasn't the faintest interest in good faith negotiation. Is the answer, then, to break off any further contact with North Korea, and let the chips fall as they may?
There's an avalanche of piracy related material today. Noah Shachtman has a fabulous rundown of what's wrong with several of the major proposed solutions for fighting piracy. Dave Schuler does pretty much the same bit, and comes to the same conclusions. Long story short, the super-simple proposal you've developed for ending piracy has probably already been thought of, and probably has a host of problems that you haven't considered.
