  Broadcast in Military

(347) 308-8397

On 15 OCT, Rear Admiral Terry McKnight, USN (Ret) book Pirate Alley: Commanding Task Force 151 Off Somalia hit the street.

Could we pick a better show for this week's best of than from February?

We have him for the full hour to discuss the fact that the problem with piracy is not going anywhere. Each year in places like Somalia it is becoming part of the local economy. In areas near poorly governed areas, it threatens the free flow of goods at market prices through the world's sea lines of communication.

Is it an economic problem, a global security problem, a political problem, or a mixture of that and more?

What is the impact of international aid, military action, and the paying of ransom? What are the best solutions, and what is working and what is not working to slow the impact of piracy?
