2. I fear the next US ship may not come out as well as the last one
esp if the pirates have revenge instead of money on their minds.

6. They hopefully become very dead.
I hope every one of those thugs dies a gruesome horrible and slow death.

4. So much for "They'll never attack another US ship again, that's for sure"
These guys don't care about geopolitics. They just want money.

If a ship looks dangerous or puts up a fight, they leave. If they can board successfully, they take hostages.

I don't think they even look at the flag.

5. This shows us that these "pirates" aren't too bright.
If they continue to attack American vessels. It will lead to nothing but imprisonment or death.
