The Answer is the Convoy

Your headline claims that there are few military options against piracy (Boston Globe, April 9, 2008: A10).

Perhaps there is only one, but it is a good one. If the shipping companies agreed to coordinate their shipping so that a dozen vessels sailed in convoy through the dangerous waters and were escorted by United Nations Naval vessels, the threat would recede.

2009 problems require 1940's solutions!
