Stupid pirates

This news story really made me laugh: Pirates captured after firing on German naval ship. These pirates fired on what they thought was a commercial vessel, and instead...

The German sailors returned fire and pursued the skiff while also calling for support. Several naval ships — including a Greek and a Dutch frigate, a Spanish warship and the USS Boxer — rushed to the area while a Spanish marine aircraft and two U.S. Marine Cobra helicopters joined the pursuit.
Ha. That's what you get for being dumb: Marine Cobra helicopters chasing you.

The part that is most confusing to me here is this: Holland has a navy?
