"The warship USS Bainbridge was joined Friday by the USS Halyburton, which has helicopters, and the huge, amphibious USS Boxer was expected soon after, the defense officials said. The Boxer, the flagship of a multination anti-piracy task force, resembles a small aircraft carrier. It has a crew of more than 1,000, a mobile hospital, missile launchers and about two dozen helicopters and attack planes".
And yet what good is this fire power until the FBI gives the order to fire upon or set fire to the life boat, regardless of Captain Phillips fate. Of course there aren't any women or children aboard the life boat, so everyone might be safe.

Where are the Navy Seals? They are supposed to be the most elite team in the world.
And why weren't Cobras or Apaches ready to sweep in and destroy the lifeboat and its pirates the minute the captain went overboard? Are they in teh air now waitng for the captain to try it again?

Captain is safe! Navy seals killed 3 of the four pirates and took one into custody.
