WarNerd    The Somali Pirates Go For It!   4/1/2010 8:53:42 PM
It is looking like a wild week for the Somali Pirates.
Apparently they hijacked 7 or 8 vessels on their way to Dubai, all in one day.
Catch and release.  12 pirates apparently mistook the Hr. Ms. Tromp and attacked.  2 attack boats destroyed and the crews returning to Somalia on the mothership.
A US Navy ship.  Pirates captured and are being conveyed to Kenya for trial.
Kenya says it can no longer shoulder the burden alone, and is refusing to accept anymore captured pirates. 
So, now what?
