So I was idly reading the Copenhagen Post (Hans Christian Anderson's favorite newspaper!) and saw the Maesrk shipping company has hired a Tanzanian warship and some soldiers to defend its merchant vessels in the area.
Does this mean the shipping companies have come to believe that the naval task force assembled by Western task forces isn't providing sufficient security and deterrence? If I were the CNO I'd be worried by this.
