This one goes back about a year when an intrepid group of Somali Pirates attempted to hijack an US Warship armed only with their trusty Ak’s and RPGs.

Bad move.

Why are these guys the world’s second dumbest pirates?

So – other than the large white numeric designation on the bow which is a dead giveaway that this is a warship and not the “Betty Boop” tramp steamer out of Kalamazoo, one might mistake this American Warship for a harmless merchant ship from miles away.

Some of these Pirate’s bretheren attacked a French Warship which looks like this on the right –

For future reference, the little dome at the front with the “pipe” sticking out of it… Is a cannon.

Out of the running (self-Darwin elimination) for World’s Dumbest Pirates are the Somali Pirates who attacked an Indian and a had a tango with a Russian warship…

It’s hard to take smithereens to trial.
