    Yup, those are real.


    17 sailors were killed in that attack.


    That is a Norwegian Heavy Transport ship carying the USS Cole to Pascagoula for repairs.


    The good news is the USS Cole has been repaired and is back underway.

    It fills full of water and sinks alittle. They they just pump the water out and it floats correctly again.
