    Suspected pirates nabbed after skirmish with U.S. Navy ship

    I am hesitant about posting any news story today, but hopefully this is real.

    A group of suspected pirates was captured Thursday after attacking a U.S. Navy frigate in the Indian Ocean, according to a statement released by the U.S. Sixth Fleet.

    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.

    The team discovered ammunition and several cans of fuel aboard the skiff, which was later sunk by the Nicholas.
    Good job by the navy. No indication any US personnel where hurt, so it sounds like a complete win for the good guys.

    Hopefully, the captured pirates will be prosecuted rather than released.

    I hope the US Navy blew them to kingdom come.

    Trial?
    Pirates may be summarily shot.

    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
