Lightning, er, pirates strike twice

The MAERSK ALABAMA, famous for its climactic fight with pirates in the spring, found itself under attack yet again. 

But this time - with armed guards on board - the ship repulsed the assault.  And injured one of the attackers.

In line with my earlier support of the concept, I'm very glad to hear that armed private security helped stave off the pirate attack.
