Silly pirates are at it again.
Pirate 1: "Hey, let's go attack that fishing trawler."
Pirate 2: "NO! Let's go attack that warship!"
I believe the pirates are a little short-staffed in the intellect department.
The USS Nicholas is an Oliver Hazard Perry
-class frigate for those of you who care about such things.
The USS Nicholas reported taking fire from a suspected pirate skiff shortly after midnight local time west of the Seychelles, the statement said. The Nicholas quickly returned fire and began pursuing the skiff, which was eventually disabled. A boarding team from the Nicholas subsequently captured and detained three people, the statement said.
Pirate 3: "That ship don't look like it can defend itself."
