The sea captain who was a prisoner of pirates until he was rescued by our brave navy SEALs last year now has a book out. The news also includes the story of some pirates who attacked a US Navy warship; they are now either dead or captured. Earlier this year we interviewed a sea captain whose anti-pirate plans include ambushing them and simply blowing them away. Piracy is a real problem in the world today; it affects the US because when ships are captured or when money is spent to aviod capture that drives the price of goods up on the world market. Captured ships and their crews are held for randsom; we certainly don’t want American ships, cargo, or crews captured. Pirates are a real menace. We’ll soon be interviewing on the show a sea captan who goes out and steals back ships that have been wrongfully seized.
