    It seems that they drove off the pirates using gunfire and a "long range accoustical device" that produces "ear splitting" noises. Evidently they got ahold of my son's Ipod..... Dropkick Murphy's at 400db, not even the most hardened pirate can tolerate that.:shake::shake::shake:

    I guess the pirates don't remember what happened the last time they tried to hijack a U.S. flagged vessel.


    THE U.S. NAVY: Not only will they shoot you dead
    from the fantail of a destroyer while you're in a life
    boat in choppy seas... They'll do it at night... On
    Easter Sunday....:shake::shake:
