Suspected pirates nabbed after skirmish with U.S. Navy ship - CNN.com Probably not the smartest of ideas to attack a US Navy ship. The end result can really only be 3 possibilities. 1. You get killed 2. You get captured 3. You get away Unless it was their intent to be captured because being held by the U.S. is a higher standard of living than what they had, I really don't understand what they were thinking.
