Pirates of the Persian Gulf!
We have Pirates in the Persian Gulf, actual pirates mind you, not the new kind that uses Napster and Kazaa and takes cameras into movie theatres to videotape movies, but the old school kind that sails the seas and attacks ships. I have one response to that = Awesome! Piracy remains a significant problem for merchantmen, with most attacks concentrated off Nigeria and the Straits of Malacca. But in the northern Persian Gulf, despite the presence of a significant number of coalition warships searching for terrorists, pirates have managed to board and attack the crew of the 301,000-ton Very Large Crude Carrier tanker Nord Millennium outside Basra Terminal, Iraq's largest export terminal in the Persian Gulf. Drink up me hearties, yo hoy!
