    I have a different take on this. I'm not sure of the amount of shipping traffic. It may be thousands of ships and very few hijackings, But if a company is sending ships to these waters with no armed guards,soldiers or mercenaries then they aren't to smart. And I don't want my tax dollars tied up protecting people that won't pay to protect themsevles at what would most likely not be a huge cost. How would this be. Armed guards thwart attemped highjacking. It isn't like they would be out gunned by a strong foriegn navy.
    A lot of countries will not let vessels with armed crew come into their ports.

      There has got to be a way to get guards on boats out in international waters. It can be done. If it isn't worth having private guards on those boats then it isn't worth our Navy's time patroling those waters. All I care about is American flagged ships the rest of the world can pay the ransoms or pee up a rope.

      P.S. I don't care about Ameican flagged ships that won't protect themselves.

        I would like to think if vessels refused to go to ports where an armed crew is not welcomed it would not take too long to see shortages in those Countries.

          I think it would be easier to escort OUR ships through the troubled waters. Let each country defend their own ships.

          Those American companies that have chosen to register their ships in another country will have to depend on them for help, or come back home where they belong if they want the benefit our navy's might.

              Mercenaries are for higher today. that American Flagged Tug with the Italian crew could have paid for them. They did not. What are they thinking. My Gosh! Now it just got to the point of stupid! Eygiptian mercenaries were making about $1000.00 a month I'm sure Gurkas would work for less. Just goes to show what buisness's think of there workers. now they expect our Military to fix the situation. An ounce of prevention would be worth a 1000tons of cure.

                Three dead pirates, one captured pirate and one live Captain. It sounds like he jumped overboard again and the Navy Seals took out the pirates.

                        Great News and gift to the captain and all Americans. Thanks to the brave men of the Navy.
                        Jamac Habeb, a 30-year-old pirate, said that the killing of the three pirates was "a painful experience."

                        "This is unfortunate action and our friends should have done more to kill the captain before they were killed. This will be a good lesson for us," Habeb told the AP from one of Somalia's piracy hubs, Eyl.

                        The above quote is why All American ships must be protected and peaceful bargaining is not an option. Never Again!

                            I just saw on the news this morning, armed guards are recommended by the Navy as one of the measures to be taken in these pirate infested waters. NO EXCUSES from here on out!
