U.S. Crew Regains Control of Ship from Pirates!
"Prepare to repel all boarders!" "Only one thing to do with pirates is to catch them and hang them from the yardarms!" "We have not yet begun to fight!" "Don't give up the ship!" ..........Love talk like that.
The United States crew member probably figured unless they took action into their own hands and took control of the ship from the pirates they were in for a looooooong wait what with Barack Obama as President of the United States. They remember Jimmy Carter and the U.S. Embassy staff in Iran who were held for 444 days or until Ronald Reagan took the oath of office. 2009 is not a good time to be an American hostage.
