Indian Navy Sinks Fishing Trawler, Army Targeting Carpool Lanes

Oops:

The ship that an Indian navy frigate sank last week was not the pirate “mother ship”, as first claimed, but was actually the hijacked ship itself, U.S. military sources told NBC News Tuesday.

The report contradicts earlier claims made by the Indian navy, which said its frigate fired in “self-defense” at a pirate ship that was intercepted off the coast of Oman. They touted the incident as a “successful interdiction operation.”

In all seriousness, this is a tragedy, but it’s not the Indian Navy’s fault. It’s the fault of the pirates, for creating an environment where the use of retaliatory force is necessary.
