Irrelevant as to when it happened. Please provide a link or source about them harassing us before we interfered.
Lawlessness aka a failed state was one of the so-called claims by the US. But it's bogus if you know the history and culture. They just did not have a strong central govt which worked for them. That we insisted they have one is what was wrong by us. In fact, our having too strong a central govt is even a problem for us. It's states with strong central powers that make more trouble in history.
So ahem, where did such pirates get their AK-47's and RPG rockets? I haven't heard of pirates in the Indonesia area having such weapons.
