    "...Some pirates moved to bow and put up their hands in surrender. The U.S. forces killed two pirates in the course of clearing the vessel - one with a handgun and one in a close-combat knife fight. There were no injuries to U.S. forces or damage to U.S. ships, Fox said..."

    Sadly the Pirates shot all 4 hostages

    Why were they sailing in those waters to start with, let alone unarmed....There are many less dangerous places to hand out Bibles.

    That is just a terrible turn of events. My guess as to why they were unarmed would be because:
    1) I'm pretty sure it is illegal to travel armed through international waters.
    2) Even if it was legal, they probably felt like if anyone saw they were armed it would hinder their missionary efforts.

    Traveling armed kind of defeats the message Christian missionaries are trying to spread.

    Huh, I wonder why this isn't in General Knife Discussions?
