Pirates Are Dumb

Cdr Salamander has a post on a recent naval action where a routine boarding operation off the coast of Somalia, the scene of recent attacks on commercial shipping, uncovered pirates dumb enough to shoot at U.S. Navy vessels, one an Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyer and the other a Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser.

Needless to say the fight was over long before the pirate 'tards had a chance to do anything but scream.

RPG's versus Ma Deuce and the Bushmaster? Not to mention 5" / 45 guns, CIWS and the Standard Missile.

You have to be kidding me.
