The German Navy task force off the Horn of Africa is keeping a watchful eye on a German cruise vessel in the area, the MV Deutschland, after pirates attacked a U.S. ship off Somalia, a shipping company said Wednesday.
Hans-Ulrich Kossel, a spokesman for the Deilmann shipping company in the Baltic port-town of Neustadt, said "that doesn't mean we've got a frigate steaming alongside us. The Navy can watch us on their radar".
The MV Deutschland left Cyprus on Wednesday bound for Dubai via the Red Sea.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
