Germany Now Fighting Pirates

German Navy Thwarts Pirate Attack - And being effective.

A pirate attack in progress was reported to the International Maritime Bureau.
In response, the German Navy frigate Karlsruhe sent a helicopter, a military spokesman said, speaking on condition of anonymity in accord with military policy.

The pirates fled as the helicopter reached the Egyptian ship, according to a statement from the German military, but not before shooting and wounding one of the ship’s crew members.
So something is being done. The only question is, "Is it enough?"
