When will they learn?Edit

Far be it for I to assert that I know anything at all about naval security, but in the past to protect the ships didn't they travel in escorted convoys through danagourous waters? Can't the same happen here?--ADtalk 01:47, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Do you know how much it costs to provide escorts for every ship that passes through there? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:45, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Clearly not, but I'm sure if the situation continues it will soon be cheaper to escort ships than keep on paying ransoms.--ADtalk 10:26, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
You're right... But the World isn't right is it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:19, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
Truer words were never spoken.--ADtalk 16:20, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
The russians are already doing it. They're escorting commercial ships.

For God SakeEdit

For God sake, this is an international war. They hijack a lot of ship. I hate them. Now they hijack Indonesian ship. I hate them. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kazmierczak (talkcontribs) 13:43, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
