Wonder what steps the shipping companies are taking to help themselves.

One would hope.  But I get the feeling many of them are relying on the different navies in the area to protect them.
 
Looks like the pirates heaviest weapons are RPGs.  Not sure what affect they would have on large ships (non-tankers).

I'm pretty sure that a Barrett would get them well before they got into RPG range. I'd buy a Barrett for the job at hand.

Not very far if they were towing the pirates behind their boat.

Yep, not very far, looks like within 100 feet or at least that's the story being release to the press.

The Seals can consider that their fouling shots.
 
They are now ready to get down to serious work!  Lord knows there a lot of pirates that need an attitude adjustment.

Did you see the one they took alive cry on TV when he found out he was not going to be treated like a bad child and sent home to "mommy"??  

Fear of retribution has its place in the world... many more people need it.

First picture I saw of him he was smiling like a fool.  Guess reality set in.  The other ones back home are now bravely promising retribution from the safety of their caves.  Sounds like the season is open.
 
US flagged ships should feel a little safer but hope they are being vigilant and prepared.
 
Embarrrassing though to see others let go.

Oh yeah I agree there, Tiger.  Wink
I just hadn't read anything suggesting the distance is all and was curious.
