For the first time in 200 years, a ship of the sea sailing under a US flag has been taken by pirates. And, in an unusual move, the ship’s crew went ahead and took the ship back.
“It’s reported that one pirate is on board under crew control – the other three were trying to flee.”
Reports suggest the other three pirates jumped overboard.
It is not sure yet how this will affect global warming.
UPDATE: The pirates are in a life boat and are holding the ship’s captain hostage. A US destroyer is about 10 hours away, but in six hours or so will be in helicopter range.
The good news: At least it was not Zombie Pirates.
