Piracy, what romantic thought. . . NOT!

I hope some ubermilitary rapid response team is currently on their way to this location and quickly and with extreme prejudice takes out every single one of the "pirates." Fuck this kind of bullshit. The seas must be safe.

Pirates seize French ship off Somalia
By JAMEY KEATEN, Associated Press Writer 25 minutes ago
PARIS - Pirates seized control of a French vessel carrying 30 crew members Friday off the coast of Somalia, the French government and the ship's owner said.

Attackers stormed aboard "Le Ponant" as it returned without passengers from the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean, toward the Mediterranean Sea, said officials with French maritime transport company CMA-CGM.

The corporate officials said they were in close contact with the French Foreign Ministry, which said in a statement that a cruise boat and its crew had been attacked by pirates.
