Not Deterred?

So apparently, Somali pirates are not deterred. From the NYT's own summary:
More than a dozen warships have joined the hunt for Somali pirates, but the pirates do not seem especially deterred.
Wouldn't the deter you? Not if you were guaranteed under "international law" that those warships could not fire on you unless fired upon, and had to do everything they could in order to keep from killing you.

Oh, and once they capture you, they'll take you to shore and... set you free.

Whenever the governments of the world want to get serious about these pirates, they should come talk to me. The advice I'll give them?

Start killing the bastards.
