Somali pirates made an oops. They managed (and I’m sure it was to their initial glee) to capture a US cargo ship carrying around 5000 tons of food as relief for the starving in Africa.
Pirates love food.
The US is the only nation that fights back anymore. Everyone else gives in.
Now there’s talk that the SEALs and DELTA Force are ancy for a fight. Operations are in the works, only waiting for President Obama to give the go-ahead for an attack on the pirate mother ships and coastal bases. This is the first US ship taken by pirates since the days of the Barbary Pirates. The US Mariine Corps solved that problem for us.
