27. Hailing them is not the only warning

 

whistles, spotlights. Every attempt is made to warn off approaching craft, force is used as a last resort. The loss of life is tragic but after what happened to the Cole in 2000, the Navy is undestandably wary of approaching unidentified craft.
Any Navy would have acted in the same manner.
