I keep looking for either a confirmation, or a link, or a news story, or *something* — but there is *absolutely nothing*.

This appears to be a hoax...

Eviscerate the fourth pirate, then throw it overboard.

Not civilian freighters. The Maersk Alabama is a civilian (Danish) container ship and the DoD said it wasn’t on a defense-related contract; in fact, I haven’t seen anything on what it was carrying, except one report that it was “possibly food aid.”

The crews and ships are unarmed, and there’s no troops onboard. They’re reduced to frantic Mayday calls, evasive action, and manning the rails with firehoses to fight off thug pirates with assault rifles, heavy machine guns, and RPGs.

I just started reading the story, a few minutes ago... the first confirmation that I’ve seen.

HOWEVER, what I want to know is how come “Americans” are on board a North Korean ship. I believe the story here was that “Americans” took back the ship, but I see that this is a North Korean ship... LOL...

Hmmmm....

Technically- FOX just reported that it’s being reported- but declined to confirm it as yet.

I’m searching the net- no other confirmation as yet..fingers crossed:)

"...if you don’t throw him overboard to the sharks, HANG THE B@ST@RD."

Absolutely. This isn't eve a close call. As an added bonus, the waters off the Somali coast are some of the most shark-infested seas in the world.

With such a large vessel, why don’t they just run over the speedboats that the pirates are in? It seems that even a minor course correction by the larger ship would swamp them.
