    If they the pirates are attacking a ship, then you have to attack and kill them, or you will never solve the problam, releasing them, or when they throw there weapons over board, lack of evidence, and leting them go dosen’t work. If every pirate that takes to sea dosen’t come back because ships have weapons to detor attack then we will win the battle. Kill all pirates so they cannot get aboard ship. Take no prisoners
