#1 It seems to me the easiest counter would be to Blow the tanker to hell, along with any Baddies on her.

Pity about the crew.
Boo Hoo.

There would be a GREAT lessining of Hijacks then.

#2 An old Korean fishing trawler crewed by a detachment of the Queen's Own Gurkha Logistic Regiment, based at Aldershot. No liberty until the coolers are full of heads. The cost should be minimal. The results noteworthy.

#3 Couldnt dock because of a sand storm?, then had difficulties manouvering? - then taken by pirates? - With the plan that its just about the oil, not hostages. Hmmmm. Could be an inside the Bridge job.
