Picture the scene here. off the Somali Coast, the French Command vessel La Somme lies quiet. Then, the sound of approaching skills and the fire of AK-47s breaks the night air. Fire is quickly returned, and the French ship launches its own vessels who capture five Somali pirates. The pirates thought the ship was a freighter--what a surprise!.
These guys earn their own Stupid Award for what has to be the most laughable episode in piracy in History.
