From Mini-Mo to 4.0 - Boot Camp

International shipping hijackings

I have been reading on cnn and fox news news sites about these hijacks at sea from these pirates, the U.S. Government knows where they operate from why don't we do something to these terrorists, I mean we are fighting in Iraq and in Afganistan to end terrorism but yet the political big shots are allowing a small under developed country take over the high seas and do what ever they want.
