Somali Pirates Attacking the US Fleet??

Got to love it.

Two different US warships "attacked" by pirates and have been forced to return fire in the last few days.

An American battleship has been attacked by pirates in the Gulf of Aden, according to US Military press reports. USS Ashland (LSD 48), was fired upon by a skiff manned by suspected pirates in the in the Gulf of Aden on 10 April, approximately 330 nautical miles off the coast of Djibouti. During the attack, Ashland returned fire causing the skiff to catch fire.

Yeah, right :D

Think someone might have to come up with a better cover story if the Yanks have decided on a more direct approach to the problem. :D

Typical, when my ship sat off the coast of Somalia with every weapon manned, all the rounds polished and cameras ready not one bloody skiff came out.

Poor show. We had even made some nice charts to put stars on for each of the aimers. For a line of 4 they got a nice treat.

Sometimes life is sooooo unfair.
