The article presents a history of the military and pirates. Taking a page from history, the U.S. Navy went after modern-day pirates off the Somali coast this fall 2007, thwarting the seizure of a North Korean ship, sinking two skiffs pirates had used to board a Japanese-owned vessel and forcing the release of two South Korean vessels. In 75 BC, Roman Emperor Julius Caesar is held for ransom by Cilician pirates in the Mediterranean.
