"...Some pirates moved to bow and put up their hands in surrender. The U.S. forces killed two pirates in the course of clearing the vessel - one with a handgun and one in a close-combat knife fight. There were no injuries to U.S. forces or damage to U.S. ships, Fox said..."

Sadly the Pirates shot all 4 hostages

Why were they sailing in those waters to start with, let alone unarmed....There are many less dangerous places to hand out Bibles.

Somebody needs to go in there and clean that place out. A half dozen daisy-cutters would do the trick.

I've been in one knife fight (40 stitches) I wished I'd had a gun.:mad:

Interesting and sad at the same time.

But the trouble with this is that there's no real point for discussion, other than why the victims were there to begin with, and that's not on topic either.

Sorry TRguy, but closed.
