Pirates have been cruising and hijacking huge tankers off the coast of Somalia in record numbers this months; the count is up to nine!

Among the hijacked tankers one is completely surrounded by the U.S. Military mainly because it just happens to carry enough tanks, and artillery to run a small military, and the other, which was on trek to the US from Saudi Arabia, just so happens to carry $ 100 million worth of crude oil
