I'm Sorry... The Danish Navy?

So, I don't mean to express surprise that there is a Danish Navy—most countries with any shoreline have a Navy, and the Danes have an enormous shoreline for a country so small. And I'm not surprised that they have a good Navy. The location is perfect for it. And let's not forget, for example, that the only major naval battle of the First World War, Jutland took place immediately off the Danish Coast.

But what the hell are the doing in the Gulf of Aden?

Oh, okay. They're doing what every other nation seems helpless to do.

Go Denmark!
(Never thought I'd be saying that.)
