Going on the Account: But Wait, There’s More!

Ends up it’s not over yet.  The Maersk Alabama  story continues, with the crew in control of the vessel but the pirates holding the captain hostage.  As I write this, the USN is sending vessels to intercept.

 

Something tells me there may be action there along the lines of the march to the shores of Tripoli, sooner rather than later.  With a US flagged vessel now attacked, there could be action ashore, not against individual seized vessels (as discussed here), to cut off the pirates at their bases. 

 

Who wants to take bets on ‘Operation Deactur’ getting a go by June 1st?
