Default Somali pirates

I can't decide whether they're actually badass for hijacking a ship full of tanks or just a bunch of smelly black people from a dirty country. Opinions?

If they are pirates, they need to get a better ship.

I read on the news they're planning to sneak the 33 Russian T-72 tanks off the ship.

Pirates these days dont drive big ships... They just take small cheap boats, usually fast ones though, and board the big ship.

Speedboat + rocket launchers + machine guns = modern day pirate. You wouldn't mess with some of those guys.

that's right, it will be arriving within the next few days. In the meantime several countries have been keeping watch and making sure those tanks aren't offloaded. I believe the U.S. has a destroyer as with some other countries monitoring the situation.

Apparently they use the "mothership" tactic.

The small FAST craft are launched from them.

Total hearsay, no links to confirmation
