"...has the world come to this"? Maritime piracy has been around for centuries. Probably as long as there have been oceans and boats to travel on them. Unfortunately, this is nothing new.Do we really have to start equipping cargo ships with heavy machine guns?
I mean honest has the world come to this?

Due to various neutrality acts and treaties around the world, most civilian ships CANNOT be armed. If it were legal to do so, most would be equipped already. By most standards (set up in the time when naval power meant a nation's absolute power) mounting a gun on a flagged ship would now make that a ship of that nations navy. To get around this, some countries have begun deploying soldiers on the ship, whom have weapons, but the ship itself is not militarily capable.Time to start equippingthese cargo ships with twin 50's (about 3 per side should suffice) and a pair of 5 inchers, one for each side.
YES, Bob. YES.Then hide the ****.... c'mon people. We can't find Bin Laden, I know you could camoflage a pair of twin-50's.
