Pirates are making a comeback as Somali pirates continue to hijack oil tankers and cargo ships. The following video was recently released and shows American mercenaries fighting off the pirates in their speedboat. When you just need to save your ship, hire Americans.
One guard begins by firing warning shots around the boat which can be seen landing just feet away from the speedboat.
After firing dozens of rounds at the speedboat which crashes into the ship’s hull, one contractor can be heard shouting: ‘Where they at, what’s their position?’
