Pirate movies in Hollywood have glamorized the evil acts real pirates carry out. Some people also assume that pirates were really only bandits that existed years ago, but that simply is not true.
Although pirates in our era today may not wear the same attire, they certainly do exist. Only hours ago, pirates hijacked a Jordanian ship. More details in regards to the pirate attack will most likely be heard, but for now you can read about the pirate attack off the Somali coast.
