I guess the ocean is the last real lawless territory that is regularly traversed by people we (western postindustrial societies) are going to care about. Actually, no, scratch that, traversed by goods that concern us. Seems like no one government is willing to deal with all the hassle of taking on the pirates, and then figuring out what to do with the ones they can’t kill outright. Maybe this much less nuanced issue (though obviously with some subtlety, see article) is really what private security forces should be used for. C’mon Blackwater, you already have the perfect name!
