India sinks Somali pirate ship:

An Indian navy warship has destroyed a suspected Somali pirate vessel after it came under attack in the Gulf of Aden.

INS Tabar sank the pirate “mother ship” after it failed to stop for investigation and opened fire instead, an Indian navy statement said.

Of India’s recent assertiveness, Alan Sullivan says:

Last week, India completed a successful moon mission; this week, India asserts its rights on the high seas, which other nations have been inexplicably loathe to enforce. We see a rising and essentially benign power in the world. This is a welcome development.

This is a great development for India. America asserted itself in the high seas when Jefferson was president, and that worked out very well for us in the long run.
