A thoughtful reader sends along this story:
on Tuesday, pirates aboard the Quest unexpectedly fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the [USS] Sterett. Shortly afterward, gunfire erupted inside the Quest cabin, and U.S. special forces responded, approaching the Quest in small boats and boarding the vessel, Vice Adm. Mark Fox, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command said in a Tuesday press conference.

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.

Somehow, FLG doubts it was like this one. Instead, it was probably like this.

Stupid Somali Pirates.
