I absolutely agree. Perhaps we could organize armed warship escorts a few times a month so that commercial ships as well as private vessels could travel the route in safety. We already have the ships and the men and any additional costs could be borne by the commercial shippers or their insurance companies. I'm sure it would be a net savings for them. And if we accidentally kill a hundred Somali pirates, well......oops>

Just no more wars.....pretty please?
