Maybe the Somali pirates should invest in a current copy of Jane's Fighting Ships.
This morning pirates fired on a French Navy vessel in international waters off the coast of Somalia. The French refueling ship La Somme gave chase and captured five suspected pirates.
Speculation is the pirates thought the French vessel was a commercial tanker.
Another example of why books are important.
And another example of why piracy on any scale is - or should be - a concern to be dealt with by the international community.
See Helen Ginger's Straight From Hel post yesterday about book pirates.
A pirate is a pirate is a pirate. Let's not let them win on any front.
