First, the intro to this week’s Demotivator theme. It’s starting to become an Easter Season tradition: stupid Somali pirates and the sailors who take them out.
NAIROBI, Kenya – The small gang of Somali pirates fired on an approaching ship, hoping their midnight attack would bring them millions in ransom. The ragtag bandits, though, had taken on far more than they could handle: a U.S. warship.
The USS Nicholas, a guided missile frigate, was tracking the pirates when they opened fire early Thursday in Indian Ocean waters, the U.S. military said. The Nicholas, which saw combat in the first Gulf War, returned fire and disabled the skiff.
Navy personnel later boarded and detained three suspects. The Americans found two more bandits on a nearby mothership and later sank the skiff.
So, you really have to be pretty much retarded to attack a US Navy ship when you’re most lethal weaponry is second hand Soviet Army surplus and your best means of transportation is a skiff, right? Well, they are. And I want to personally thank the US Navy for helping skim the global gene pool by repeatedly taking these guys out in one way or another. With that said, here are you Friday demotivators…
