free ride to Kenya

where they can pay off some official and stay in country then.

Every once and a while along comes a news story that's just

too good, like pirates in a skiff attacking a US warship (despite the mother-ship). They've certainly set their sights high.

I was waiting for the "April Fool" follow up

but I could believe it intentional for other reasons. The navy vessel was able to cripple the small craft and "rescue" the occupants without harm. That's got to be some good shooting. I wonder if the pirates expected such and their gunfire was more to draw attention than to engage an overwhelmingly superior foe. Didn't another pirate get a free trip to the US after being wounded? It seems I remember such but don't know what followed.

I guess...

I guess you could compare it to an ant crawling up an elephant's leg, with rape on his mind. You could admire his ambition, but definitely not his judgment (grin).
