MetadataShow full item record
Due to the increase in pirate activity off the coast of Somalia, the United States military and the combined forces of the world’s navies are partnering together to defeat these violent extremists. Piracy has threatened maritime safety and cost commercial shipping billions of dollars paid in ransom monies. The Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa that were once safe to transit are no longer, and for this reason, President Obama has issued an executive order to defeat terrorism in the form of piracy. The Commander of the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (CENTCOM), U.S. Fifth Fleet, Combined Maritime Forces (CMF), is responsible for the safety, stability, peace, and vital interests of the United States for 2.5 million square miles of water. For the contents of this paper, the region of geographical concentration has been on the area that has been the most prevalent to pirate attacks, Somalia. Combined Task Force 151 (CTF 151) is a multi-national task force that is response for 1.1 million square miles of water in the Gulf of Aden and off the coast of Somalia.
