(CNN) -- Pirates in the Arabian Sea have hijacked a Saudi-owned oil tanker with 25 crew aboard, the U.S. Navy and the British Foreign Office confirmed on Monday..

On Sunday pirates seized a 20,000-ton Japanese cargo ship off the coast of Somalia. A Russian patrol ship also thwarted an attack on a Saudi vessel.

India's got the right idea or has it. Mother ship sunk

Could we start seeing crew being tossed overboard in an eye for an eye justice.

I hope not

Although Blackwater is only one ship. It will drastically change everything. These guys are looking for a fight, and aren't worried about pulling the trigger first, and asking questions later
