Disarm (In some situations)
Spell Reflect (In some situations)
Then if things start getting really hairy, I've got Heroic Leap and Intervene and rocket boosts to start kiting things around.
That's a pretty big toolset. I never really feel like there's much time in any given fight that I don't have at least one of those cooldowns up and running. If I do happen to run out or something, there's always my Disc priest, who has both Pain Suppression and Sparkledome to protect me, or the holy priest, with GS, or the paladin, with BoS, etc.
Prot warriors have plenty of tools to use. The gap between prot warriors and other tanks isn't "so wide." We tank just fine and have some things the other tanks don't have. They have some things we don't have. It's fine.

I'm empty and aching and I don't know why
