Somali Piracy Diminished, At Least Temporarily

Good article on the present state of Somali piracy: http://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/party-somali-pirates-attacks-17320672. It's still too soon to tell if the scourge of Somali piracy is nearly over--it may have a brief respite, and there's always the unlikely chance of a significant increase in tactical ability--but at least time has proved the obvious: that a combination of naval patrols, naval escorts, and armed commercial shipping would significantly reduce the threat of piracy, naysayers (and there were quite a few, see the last of chapter of Pirate Hunting) notwithstanding.
