Singapore, the Malacca Straits Patrol (MSP) ineffective to maintain security in the Malacca
Strait and Singapore. The ineffective can be seen in the 2014 ReCAAP data where in 2014 there
were 44 cases of piracy in the Malacca Strait and Singapore. Up 32 cases from 2013 and in 2015
it rose again to 94 cases. In analyzing the case this research will use realist theory. In the realist

power must be transformed into the real power of the country's government. Then for the data
this study uses a literature study. Whereas for data analysis this research uses congruent data
analysis. The results of this study indicate that the ineffective of the MSP in tackling cases of
piracy and piracy is caused by thelimited military power of MSP members to carry out anti-

Patrol member countries which are not good because they are not so concerned about these
limitations.
