Pirates Attack Another US Ship

USA: 2; Pirates: 0. A US-flagged cargo ship was attacked by pirates yesterday, but the attack was repelled without injury. The 738-foot long Liberty Sun sustained damages from rocket-propelled grenades and automatic-weapons fire, but by the time a US Navy Destroyer arrived on the scene, the pirates had already fled. According to a bizarre report, however, China may have an even more awesome weapon on its side to protect its ships: a flock of thousands of dolphins.
