Pirates Seized Near Kenya
Only the French don't surrender.
LOL one in a row for the French! their champange must have been threatened! but seriously how dense did these pirates have to be to try to hijack a warship its like Starscream trying to take out Megatron using only a fly swatter
They've been watching too much south park.
I expected "french navy runs from pirates" honestly.
Soooo... the pirates mistook a French navy ship for a commercial ship?
Haw-haw, serves them right.
Something I've been wondering ever since this whole Somali pirate thing started. Naval vessels have been chasing pirate ships away from commercial vessels with warning shots and whatnot - why don't they just unleash the big guns and blow the pirate craft out of the water?
^A bunch of ships are still seized by pirates with the crews still hostage to attack the pirates would be like signing death warrants for all those held by somalis
First time for everything!
HA-HA! Serves those bastards right.
Although you'd only have to do it once to show them they can't keep attacking ships while thinking those hostages are a good deterrent against retaliation.
Of course, sacrificing those hostages by blamming the pirates is never going to happen, so I guess they'll keep taking more ships and more hostages until they have all the world's ships and hostages. This can only get worse.
When people make fun of the French do they just selectively forget about Napoleon or all the wars they've been in before America even existed?
Or is it just because of WW2? I know it's a running joke but I dunno...
Napoleon was from Corsica.
Blah blah Butt Pirates blah blah French ticklers blah blah Surrender.
I´m just waiting until they annoy the russians.
They have a "particullar" way to deal with people who annoy them.
Yeah there's no easy solution and the only remotely good one is to setup a stable enough government so that somali piracy dies down but that means another western country or coalition in an afganistan quagmire while there are already two such scenarios which as of yet are unresolved. I fear this is really leading into a crap sock world
It's a good thing the pirates didn't have lightsabers. Or the French WOULD have surrendered....
Lightsabers scare French people ya know...
Sigged good sir, thanks.
