I have read a few posts about ships as a possible target of terrorists and the US and Russians playing naval games at the moment. Don't know how likely this would be but suppose terrorists hijacked one or more oil tankers. If they then positioned these tankers in a strategic location at sea and dumped the oil the results could be devastating.

If Hawaii was a target and oil was dumped around the islands it would destroy Hawaii's only source of income from tourism and do irreparable harm to the habitat. Economically it would be devastating as the US Fed Govt would have to either relocate Hawaii's population to the mainland or support them with billions in financial aid for many many years not to mention the cleanup bill.

Other targets could include Florida or the the California coastlines and popular beaches.

I'm sure that our national defense organizations have thought of this and are taking measures to make sure this does not happen. Oil is our most important import (so it would be insane for us not to take the neccesary precautions). It has not been out of the norm in recent times for the navy to escort oil tankers.
