Somali Pirates mistake French Warship for merchant vessel

Somali pirates, who made the mistake of attacking the German naval tanker FGS SPESSART on March 29 and were hunted down by the Dutch, Spanish, Greek and US Navies, have proved once again that they are nothing but third world thugs.
This time they mistook a French warship for a merchant vessel and were immediately disarmed and taken into custody.
They should check out the website for Jane's Fighting Ships and learn to identify their prey. On second thought, they probably shouldn't.

Thanks to Central La Politics for alerting us to this story.
