-the marines were created to spank the Tripoli pirates, who are still pirates today-

You calling Marines pirates?

You might be partially correct :-)

A good book IMO, "Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli pirates" by Brian Kilmeade.

My reference was that some residents of that region haven't changed that much in the decades (centuries?) since. Some of the things those pirates were doing back then, are still being done recently by ISIS and the like. 

President Thomas Jefferson said no mas to the extortion.... and world trade benefitted.

521 mile force march *through north Africa* to get to the X (Battle of Derna).

The pirate business is profitable until someone stops it.  Somali pirates, etc. 

Thanks for the book info, hope it's available on Audible.
 
Edit: snagged it for one Audible credit.
