The Indian frigate that blasted the pirate "mother ship" last week actually sank a Thai fishing boat that had been hijacked a few hours earlier. 14 Thai fishermen missing!

So much for those who have espoused the "blow em out of the water" philosophy.

If you keep reading there's reason to believe that most of the crew were killed for the boat.....one survivor...

Collateral damage has to be accepted in this sort of situation. It's unfortunate, but if the perps see that there will be no quarter given, they'll rapidly decide that it's not worth THEIR lives to continue.

Brutal? Yeh, but IMO the only method that will work.
