Yeah, those poor pirates are only trying to make a living sheesh!
Maybe the ships should have water taxis available so the really poor wannabes won't need to buy their own pirate boat.
Ah to be young again!
It also sounds like the established security firms will get the majority of business.

The reputable shipping companies are getting the established security firms. Some state affiliated or owned shipping companies are taking advantage of the state's stake in the business...they have access to military forces. Very interesting.

A huge amount of time, effort, and money is being spent by organizations in trying to deal with this threat. The discussion that went on in the comment section after the article is very similar to some I've been party to in my own company.

What the shipowners must do is to hire one team of 50 caliber specialist sniper with night vision gogles. All the sniper has to do is to disable the skips (no need to engage the pirate mother ship), blow a hole to sink the pirate skips or shoot the fuel tank or disable the propeller or disable the rudder.

The main goal is to stop the pirates from boarding their ships and start holding hostage and paying ransom.

Pirate mother ship? 50 caliber specialist sniper? Looks like I might have a new job!

But seriously, DVM had an article about anti-piracy PMC's, or something among that line

I left a "Tongue in cheek" comment.

"Somalia needs musroom clouds!" :wink:

But seriously:
Untill our governments get serious, this will continue for years to come.
