As reported by the NY Times (click link to read whole story):   

"Hours after pirates commandeered a United States-flagged container ship with 20 American crew members off the coast of Somalia on Wednesday, the pirates and crew appeared to be in a standoff, with the ship under control of its crew once again but the skipper a captive of the pirates."

Do you think the United States government should get involved in rescuing the American captain?

I'm just watching this story on the news. The US Navy is on the way and the pirates have taken at least one US hostage. Yes I think we should go and rescue them, we shouldn't let pirates roam around attacking any ships.
