The French have scored a huge victory in the escalation in Islamic hostilities on the high seas. Four ships were captured earlier this week by Muslim pirates, 60 hostages kidnapped, and early yesterday the US fought off jihadi pirates and avoided capture.
If Clinton had done the right thing in 1993 in MOGADISHU and let the military handle it, the course of history would be radically different. But he was a coward and didn't have the moral compass or integrity to follow through. This is what happens when Islam is left to its own devices. The West may not want to, but if it is to survive, it must beat back Islamic supremacism.
Crew and vessel seized after overnight shadowing operation
French forces have captured 11 pirates during an attack on their "mothership" 550 miles east of the Kenyan port of Mombasa, the French defence ministry said today.
The men were taken early in the morning when French forces seized their 30ft-long vessel after shadowing it overnight.
The pirates are being held aboard the Nivose, a French frigate taking part in a European mission to protect shipping in the Gulf of Aden, which links the Suez canal and the Red Sea to the Indian Ocean.
