    CDP, as I understand it the issue isn't what may be carried in international waters under law, but instead what can be on the ship under the porting agreements when it pulls in to load/unload. That goes to concerns that some mad Turk on an armed freighter would open up on a Greek tanker with his 40mm Bofors gun in port, touching off a cascading conflagration and catastrophic destruction of the port.

    As far as I know all ships out in the open ocean have the right of self defense. I would like to see the looks on the faces of the pirates as they motor up to a ship, the gate way flies open and they find themselves staring down the spinning barrels of a Vulcan Chain gun.
    By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
    Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,
    Here once the embattled farmers stood,
    And fired the shot heard around the world!

    maby they could just reinforce hull of the ship and just plow through the pirate boats let them float out at sea for a few days till they die let them suffer
