Somalia: MV Faina. They've got her cornered.

Pirated Arms freighter cornered by US Navy. Secret arms deal still alleged.

American warships on Monday surrounded an arms-laden freighter hijacked by pirates, sealing off any possible escape in a standoff near the craggy Somalia coastline.

Lt. Nathan Christensen, a Navy spokesman, said that “several destroyers and missile cruisers” had joined the American destroyer that was already following the hijacked vessel. He would not specify the number of warships or what they would do if the pirates refused to surrender.

Blow them out of the water.

Let's get busy figuring out what was on the MV Iran Deyanat.
