India Gets The Mothership

Somali pirates, Louis Farrakhan hardest hit.

The navy captured 61 pirates fleeing the battle and the fire that broke out aboard the hijacked vessel. The battle is the latest example of the piracy trade's turn toward increased violence.

A pirate in Somalia threatened Indian sailors and the government with targeted attacks in retaliation for the arrests.

The Indian navy said a patrol aircraft spotted the mothership Friday while responding to another vessel reporting a pirate attack. The pirates aborted the hijacking attempt and tried to escape on the mothership.

Better look out, India. You could be in big trouble from a bunch of losers that run around in motorboats armed with AK's and the occasional RPG.

So far, Rita X has no comment on the mothership.
