#5 Take out the villages connected to the piracy and the piracy is over. That is something the west won't do that Somalia's government could for the price.

#7 You know, despite the terrific recoil, a WW II PT boat could support a single 40mm Bofors.
If a boat such as that, with sufficient ammo, wandered into a pirate port, the pirates would be land-bound in about fifteen minutes.
Which is to say, this is not a big deal, if anybody were interested.
