Somali Pirates Fire Upon US Helicopter

From CNN:
Pirates holding a Taiwanese-flagged ship off the coast of Somalia fired on a U.S. Navy helicopter Wednesday as the aircraft monitored the ship, the Navy said.


The pirates were on a ship they had hijacked back in April. They had converted the ship for use as a floating base from which they were launching smaller attack boats. The helicopter was not hit, and was uncertain as to whether or not it had been fired upon until reviewing video of the incident.


Clearly, the Somali pirate menace continues. The Obama Administration should lead the world to stop this idiocy. There's no reason there should be pirates in 2009.
