French forces detained 11 suspected pirates during an assault on what they described as a pirate “mother ship” in the Indian Ocean off the eastern coast of Somalia Wednesday, less than 24 hours after an American cargo ship was attacked by pirates in the same region.
The 11 detainees are being held on board a French frigate, the Nivôse, part of a European Union antipiracy task force patrolling in the area, the French defense ministry said in a statement.

Well, neo67.....just keep watching faux 'news' and bobbing your head.
THIS (the 'piracy') has been going on for only the last few months, hmmmm????
If you wish to call the Obama Administration 'weak and stupid' then yoiu'd better add King George to the same category.
I suppose if the latest Maersk Alabama event had happened under his watch, he's wait 'til he finished reading 'My Pet Goat' before doing anything...if he did anything at all.....
