    A large group of manly men out on a boat for weeks at a time is suddenly boarded and dominated by another group of men…

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that, if that’s what you’re into.

    why this shipping companies cant hire blackwater contractors (or whatever the fuck they want to call themselves) and attach some heavy weaponry to these vessels I have no clue. All they would need would be maybe a single 105mm recoilless rifle, 2x dual 20mm cannons, and then 4x .50 cal machine guns. Then when the pirates approach light those fuckers up, turn their bodies into a fucking splatter painting.

    Nothing like mistaking a German Navy ship for a target: latimesblogs.latimes.com/babylonbeyond/2009/03/gulf-of-aden-pi.html

    @dhg4983: Because those container ships eventually have to dock at a civilian port of a foreign country. How do you think New York Port Authority would respond to a foreign ships armed with military-grade weapons coming and going? That’s a serious security risk if not a technical act of war.
    Here’s a rule-of-thumb: if you have a great idea on how to “fix” a problem that takes less that two minutes to come up with, ask yourself why no one else has that of it. That goes double for any idea that involves weapons or explosives.

    Great snapshot. Go pirates! If I was piss poor and my country was outright corrupt(sorta is) I’d do the same thing. Plus you get to pull the “I’m holding a AK-47 and Machete, so fuck you!” pose.

    You know ,this is a ridiculous situation.Some of the most potent,modern and heavily armed warships afloat are not being permitted to deal effectively with what are simply thugs.If faced with a weapon most law enforcement or military personnel are trained to instantly react to the threat.If you are in a small vessel,in international waters and you are armed with RPG-7`s and assault rifles then the obvious conclusion is that you are not fishing to feed your family.Political sensitivities be damned.Attack them,already!

    @mikoyangurevich15: not really because they have to take all precautions there is a possiblity that there is a hostage on that ship that why they always bring in commandos.

    @ColombianMonkey.I meant targeting the potential hijackers vessel.If arms are on board,this is proof of hostile intent.Hostage “rescue” is more often than not a messy affair.It seldom works out as planned.So prevent that scenario from the start.

    @mikoyangurevich15: i understand what you say but, as how the system goes save a life no matter what, only if cannot then sacrifices has to be made. but if say you are kidnapped by Taliban for example, your country will negotiate and if it fails they send the commandos to get you IF they know WHERE you are..

    @dhg4983:Not to mention that the insurance companies figure it is less expensive to pay ransom than to deal with the legal intanglements of insuring and operating an armed ship. We (CV64 battle group) were passing through the straits around Malaysia on our way to the Persian Gulf in 94. Some twits in a 30ft boat, no flag, waving weapons, came out of a little island and went after our tender. Guess they didn’t see the cruisers or us on the carrier spread out. The pair of F 14 Tomcats on low cap did see them, dropped to about 75 feet… Read more »
