Somalia: Spanish frigate Victoria destroys pirates' mother ship

:D Yeah!! Now let's see if they continue doing this or they just receive a command like the one "don't shoot the Taliban until they shoot first"...

i read somewhere that a bunch of the pirates attacked a US navy ship by mistake and got blown sky-high out of the water. That would have been fun to watch. :)
