Sea Marshals?

What to do with the present day pirates?

Should freighters have Naval escorts?

Should there be well-armed sea marshals assigned to freighters?

I think a well-armed and well-trained team would be better than just having the crew be armed to protect themselves. Although a well-trained team with an armed crew as back-up may not be a bad thing.

Technology- is there a passive system that can be employed aboard freighters that would either disable the boat or the crew as they approach?

Amplified, directed soundwaves- we have deployed that technology in Iraq. I would bet that would stop their approach.

I am sure any readers will have their own suggestions.

What say you?

    If they have the money to do that then yes, go for it.

    It will probably save money in the long run anyway.

    It'd certainly start to introduce fear into the equation, for the pirates.

    I get the feeling that these pirates aren't afraid of dying nor getting caught.

    So first we would have to find out what they fear in order to exploit it.

    A story on this very issue on NPR today:

    Also, it's "marshals," not "marshalls."

    Thanks for the spelling correction.

    I knew you were good for something.
