Threat of Strait of Malacca terrorism catch PacFlt's eye

Reported here:
"The Strait of Malacca is the heaviest trafficked strait in the world, and for that reason any disruption to that commerce, not only would it affect the region, I would suggest it would have global implications," Roughead told Reuters in an interview.
"I am not sure it would have to be of great magnitude. The fact that a vulnerability has been demonstrated is enough to affect trade," Roughead, head of United State's biggest naval fleet, said on the sidelines of a major naval conference in Sydney.
