Pirates are dumb

Postby Metroid » Wed Oct 07, 2009 8:26 pm

Seriously? :-b

NAIROBI (AFP) – Somali pirates attempted to storm the French navy's 18,000 tonne flagship in the Indian Ocean after mistaking it for a cargo vessel, the French military said on Wednesday.

The crew of La Somme, a 160-metre (525-foot) command vessel and fuel tanker, easily saw off the brazen night-time assault by lightly armed fighters on two lightweight skiffs and captured five pirates, a spokesman said.

"The pirates, who because of the darkness took the French ship for a commercial vessel, were on board two vessels and opened fire with Kalashnikovs," Admiral Christophe Prazuck said in Paris.

You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

I'm pretty sure they knew all along it was a French Navy ship - that's why they were counting on them to surrender in the first place ;-7

My first thought when I saw the title of this thread was the Pittsburgh Pirates...and yes, they are dumb too. :-t

If it were the Pittsburgh Pirates, they would've successfully raided the ship and immediately traded away everything they looted for prospects.

Does anyone know for a FACT that these pirates aren't from Pittsburgh?

And then traded those prospects for one expensive, bad, and old pitcher.
