Editorial: Pirates need to see our strength

An unidentified armed man is seen on deck of the American ship, the Maersk Alabama, whose captain remains held hostage by Somali pirates, as it arrives in Mombasa, Kenya, guarded by Navy Seals and with the 19 remaining crew members aboard, Saturday April 11 2009. Capt. Richard Phillips is still being held in the lifeboat hundreds of miles from land. U.S. warships are nearby monitoring the situation. The U.S.-flagged ship was attacked by Somali pirates firing automatic weapons Wednesday but its unarmed crew locked themselves in a secure room and then overpowered one of the pirates.
