You know who you are... if you have been downloading Game Of Thrones illegally, this is what will come after you! (Well, it can cover 600 miles of land with a good run-up.)
The article calls it "pirate catcher". But I doubt the US gov would use serious money mainly to handle the pirate problem. But I admit it's a stimulating thought. I dislike problem handling with force, but I have have an even worse dislike for pirates. A friend of mine, a young Chinese woman, came to Denmark as a child. At one point, she and her mother was a long time on a refugee boat. They were hit by pirates. After they had stolen all they could, they - get this - the pirates poured gasoline on all the food. Man, that's nice people.
