Barbary coast pirates?
"Barbary Coast Pirates" are paramilitary Tunisian. Algerian and Moroccan sailors. under general protection of the Ottoman Empire, the term itself is an intentionally degrading name given to those poor brave souls..obviously by Westerners. Western history exploits the tales about the "barbaric pirates" who appeared to attack merchant ships and sometimes even the escorting nayvies of these countries. While it is true that native Barbary Coast sailors attacked Western ships, the real question to ask here is why they did that ! BARBARY COAST SAILORS WERE MERELY TRYİNG TO CREATE A BLOCKADE TO STOP THE LUCRATIVE SLAVE RUNNİNG ROUTES OF WESTERN NATİONS (What else do you think Westerners could have been after, around Barbary Coast, at the time).

What was the barbary coast?
The Barbary Coast was a European term to describe land inhabited by the Berber peoples. The area was the coastal and inland regions throughout North Africa what is now known as Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya. The term was used between the 16th and the 19th Centuries. The Barbary pirates and slave traders attacked ships and coastal settlements in the Mediterranean and the North Atlantic. In 1805 the Battle of Derne put an end to these unlawful acts

What happened to the barbary pirates?
Traders ran great risks, especially in the Mediterranean Sea. Pirates from the Barbary States, the nations along the coast of North Africa, attacked passing vessels. To protect American ships, the United States paid a yearly tribute, or bribe, to rulers of Barbary States such as Tripoli. In 1801, Tripoli increased its demands. When Jefferson refused to pay, Tripoli declared war on the United States. Jefferson then ordered the navy to blockade the port of Tripoli. During the blockade, the American ship Philadelphia ran aground near Tripoli. Pirates boarded the ship and hauled the crew off to prison. The pirates planned to use the Philadelphia to attack other ships. To prevent this, American naval officer Stephen Decatur and his crew quietly sailed into Tripoli harbor by night. They then set the captured American ship on fire. In the meantime, American marines landed on the coast of North Africa. They marched 500 miles to launch a surprise attack on Tripoli. In 1805, the ruler of Tripoli signed a treaty promising not to interfere with American ships.

Asked in History of the United States, Pirates
Why did the US go to war with the barbary pirates?
The Barbary Pirates required that all nations whose ships sailed the Mediterranean pay a protection fee. Jefferson was very hesitant to continue doing this. "Tribute or war is the usual alternative of these Barbary Pirates. Why not build a navy and decide on war?" he had said. Finally in 1801, the pasha of Tripoli had had enough and ordered the flagpole of the American consulate chopped down, clearly declaring war.
