I saw this cool article at motorvessel.com. Although 2008 is not mentioned, the jist of the article is quite clear. There is far more piracy in the South China Sea than the Gulf of Aden.
I am sure it is prefacing something we may want to do in the future. This will garner public approval. Oh yeah, south china sea… maybe East Africa doesn’t have the military might as say folks around the south China Sea.
