Seems like they are bringing in more reinforcement ships they hijacked. I think we have to sacrafice a few other nationals. What do you think they would do if we have a few holes in those big ship they uses as reinforcement, a slow sink?

Let's start with those who have poor English skills, regardless of nationality.

Yes, just pay it and get him back. Then kill them all and let Mohammed sort it out.
Pirates in the Mediterranean held the young Julius Caesar hostage. He wrote to rich friends, who paid the ransom, but while he was a prisoner, he smilingly told the pirates he would hunt them down and kill them. They didn't believe him. Then the ransom was paid and he was freed. He raised money for a fleet of ships of his own, hunted down the pirates, and crucified them all. He was enlightened for his time, but he was still a Roman, and you didn't screw with Romans. We ought to be the same way.

One of the problems is that the shipping companies have been paying the ransoms. Israel does not negotiate for hostages. EVER. As a result no one takes Israelis hostage since they know it not going to gain them anything. All countries should learn from this. It is a hard pill to swallow initially but it pays off in the long term.
