Enough already

Pentagon says crew retakes US ship from pirates

But the situation is 'fluid.'  Latest report is the crew has one hijacker in custody on board the Maersk Alabama and the hijackers are holding the captain in a lifeboat.

But, more to the point, there is no good reason the hijackers were able to board the ship at all.  When are these shippers going to arm the crew and post a watch when sailing through those rat-infested waters?  When?
