FLASH!!! Cruise Ship Employ's New Secret Weapon In Fight Against Unidentified Attackers Off Coast of Africa.

In a story that just keeps on giving, it seems that Carnival Cruise Lines has a new weapon in its fleets arsenal to ward off pirates and potential terrorist threats; An ear-splitting microwave sound projector that becomes physically unbearable for those on the receiving end, forcing the attacker to retreat. The incident involving the Seabourn Spirit (owned by Carnival Cruise Lines) marks the first such use of this weapon on the high seas. Apparently it was commissioned by the US military in the wake of the attack on the USS Cole to ward off potential small craft threats. Undoubtedly, the effectiveness of this weapon and this incident is currently being carefully evaluated. Although presumed to be a pirate attack, it is still unclear if the incident represented an attempted terrorist assault.
