THESE GUYS BELONG IN A MONTY PYTHON SKIT:

Pirates attack U.S. cargo ship but fail to get aboard (Mike Mount, 4/14/09, CNN)

The Liberty Sun, a U.S.-flagged cargo ship bound for Mombasa, Kenya, was attacked Tuesday by Somali pirates, according to a NATO source with direct knowledge of the matter.

It was an unsuccessful attack, and the pirates never made it onto the ship. The vessel is now being escorted by a coalition ship, still bound for Mombasa.
