"The report said the pirates are likely to ask a ransom ranging from USD 1,5 M - USD 2 M."

Oh yeah? Its the other way round - if the pirates pay 1 million USD we will eventually take our saylors back. If not, Somalia will go to hell in a matter of months, our saylors will show them how to do it more effectively.
