More Pirate News

Wow! Those were some great security guards! Somali pirates attacked and captured a chemical tanker Friday and help arrived just in time to fish the tanker's British security detail out of the sea, reports the AP.

The ship's captain radioed the anti-pirate task force, who sent a German helicopter to the scene too late to do anything but rescue the employees of the ambitiously named Anti-Piracy Maritime Security Solutions who had jumped overboard.

Did they really jump, or were they made to walk the plank? Aaaaarrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!

The "international community" is making me feel safer by the minute.
