Somalia Pirates

ok, i had a blog before about them but they slacked out of the news for awhile. now they are back!
i cannot believe the stories i had read online and the news i saw on television. am i correct in my understanding that it took several U.S. warships and the Navy SEALS to fight off 4 pirates in a lifeboat?! is this how the U.S. tax dollars are spent? i for one, am not only shocked by this but, as a tax payer, am completely irritated (to put it mildly and family friendly) as well. was there really a need for that stand-off to take that long (5 days to be exact) when so many professionals and guns are involved? this bloggers opinion is that it was an outrageous and unnecessary way of dealing with the situation.
