Protecting the ships from Pirates (Part 2)
My previous post about piracy and protecting the ships from pirates mentioned what an insider stressed in a forum that I attended about a month ago. There is a need to provide human security personnel to safeguard the huge and expensive vessels from fast crafts being operated by pirates. Since Filipinos are known to be the greatest provider of seafarers, it is probably high time for it to also become a source of armed and well trained security personnel. In the Philippines, the military, with its combat experience, can provide training that can possibly be used by private shipping companies.
