Piracy in the 21st century

I found a pretty good write up on modern piracy and current counter-measures, written by the author of a new sniper manual that focuses on maritime operations.  Read it here.  Check out this helmet cam of Dutch commandos executing a hostage rescue of a cargo ship that had been taken over by Somalian pirates.  The author of the above articles states that this mission was possible because the ship’s crew had safely secured themselves in a safe room that had been installed on the ship.
