A New Sherrif In Town

Speculation of a turn around in French interaction with the world changing with the election of President Sarkozy appears to be correct.

Galrahn has the information on how the French tracked a vessel seized by pirates off the coast of Somalia, a haven for piracy.

The story goes on to include vertical envelopment and capture of the pirates on their own turf whilst they were making the getaway.

I would think this would make the remaining pirates less likely to target any ships flying le tricolore.

Bravo to all those involved in this great feat of anti-piracy operations.
