    We can't even defeat PIRATES!


    ================================================================
    PARIS, France (AP) -- Pirates seized control of a French luxury yacht carrying 30 crew members Friday in the Gulf of Aden off Somalia's coast, the French government and the ship's owner said.

    Attackers stormed the three-mast Le Ponant as it returned without passengers from the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean, toward the Mediterranean Sea, said officials with French maritime transport company CMA-CGM.

    "This is a blatant act of piracy," Prime Minister Francois Fillon told reporters while on a visit to Brussels. "The Defense and Foreign ministries are mobilized to act as quickly as possible, I hope in the coming minutes or hours to try to win the freedom of these hostages."

    having a war on 'terrorism' is EXACTLY like having a war on 'piracy'

    Safe to say terrorism has been around for a long time ... under different names I am sure. It will always be around as guerilla warfare is made for media attention. We have done a great job in this country but one who have to think hard work can only go so far ... we are way overdue.
