Default Somali Pirates Bite Off More Than They Can Chew

Somali pirates are not having it all their own way at present. In the latest incident, some unsophisticated pirates, seeing a large vessel on the horizon, sped up to it hoping for rich pickings only to find themselves confronting a US navy missile frigate, which exchanged fire severely damaging both of their boats, and later capturing the mother ship.



USS NICHOLAS (FFG 47)



April 2, 2010, [PDN]: Just after midnight, west of the Seychelles Islands, a gang of three pirates fired on a 453-foot American warship, the USS Nicholas, mistaking it for a commercial vessel. To their chagrin, the pirates found they had bitten off considerably more than they could chew as the frigate fired back, incapacitating one of their boats, a skiff, which was boarded and the three pirates detained, after which it was sunk. Their other boat was captured after a chase and another two pirates were taken into custody. The pirates further discovered that, not only had they taken on a warship, but that it was on the lookout for them in particular. They were detained and may face trial in the US for piracy on the high seas.

Apparently this was all a misunderstanding as the lead pirate was simply trying to escape from his other pirates, because he could no longer stand the shame working for the pirate organization.














A picture of said pirate has surfaced:

definitely agree,

they run the risk of piracy so they should go down to davy jones locker along with their boat.

Although they are obviously not the smartest tools in the box by the looks of things
