Pirates hijack American ship.
If this were a movie, this is where there would be a scene of the President going into the Situation Room, all angry and determined, yelling "That pirate scum has messed with the wrong country! Send all the fire power we have -- [insert cool names of helicopters and fighter jets that I don't know]."
I really hope that scene is actually happening. And that there are actually helicopter, fighter jets, and pissed off Marines on their way to take care of this.
After all, this is no corporate oil tanker. It's a ship carrying RELIEF AID. At this point, I'd volunteer to help fight them myself, but I have a feeling that our military would prefer I didn't touch anything that is explosive.
