Pieces of Eight

So there's piracy on the high seas, the Pirates of the Carribean are indeed alive, well and living in Somalia. Having read the news this week I did wonder how pirates had managed to board a supertanker, three times the size of an American Aircraft Carrier, and then I saw a picture in the press of a small speedboat full of pirates packing Rocket Launchers, and began to understand ...
What's to be done about this? perhaps Her Maj's Navy should take a leaf out of the Indian Navy's book who decided to play a real life game of Battleships by blowing a few out of the water today.
Captain Pugwash had better look out, India it seems is almost as Angry as Britain.
