Somali pirates hijack ship; 20 Americans aboard
the world will be watching
We will hold our breath until we turn blue, and then we will streneously object..
This pirate thing is an embarassment to the amazing technology we have. Back when it started there was an article about the little town that was home to these guys - we should have just destroyed it then and there and been done with it. Not talking Obama here, that was Bush's time. We should now just fly a few planes through the area daily and if we see one of those ships just blow it away; we can do it. It's a total joke and not because of Obama. We have an amazing military and we won't use it when we actually should.
Guess we'll be going to Darfur and environs after all .....
Send Jimmy Carter & Jessie Jackoff over to "negotiate"
Pansy's love the word "negotiate" it's the nice politically correct word for "cowardly loony a$s kissing"
This "pirate thing" would make a great comedy movie, we win World Wars but we can't handle some little motor boats full of gang bangers.
Round up some Alabama "Skin Heads" and send them over there they'll take care of Blackbeard and his Jolly Men in two days.
If Theodore Roosvelt could come back to life and see what America has come to he would "Kill Himself"
"Hey Barry, go get the pirates, show them your Ears....:singing:
you can't just blow boats out of international waters..........
and would take alot more than a few planes to cover the area in question
As a matter of fact you can. Of course, Obamababy wouldn't because then the world wouldn't like him.
I wasn't talking about the water area, I was talking about the ports that they call home.
There are 20 Americans on board this boat.
The point is how we get them back safely and all anyone wants to do is bloviate about Obama, liberals or how we use the military to blow up a port?
JEEZIZ H CHRIST!
I didn't mean that boat. How we get the people off, who knows - a big smile and a nice telepromted speech I guess.
But after that . . . blow away two boats when just pirates are on them and that will largely end the problem.
Um, no you can't just blow boats out of the water. You have to know that the boat in question is that of the pirates. I think the problem they have in dealing with the pirates, is that the ships, by law, are not armed for defense. Arming them would mean that there'd be fire fights on shipping vessels. So that's a no-go. Doing commando style raids could maybe work, but that might cause the pirates to use different, more aggressive, and violent tactics, to show that they mean business. As it is right now, there are few injuries to any of the captives, and the fear may be that to aggressive a course could change that. Personally, I'd pay these people in counterfeit dollars, with a tracking device, and then blow them to kingdom come when they pull away from the ship. That, and/or I'd try to identify the pirates, and attack them on land with gun ships and commando's.
Yes you can. I didn't say it's not against international law. But we can do it - and we should.
Have you seen what those boats look like ? It wouldn't be real hard to get this done. It's not like super secret submarines out there.
What would Ronnie do?
while I'd love to agree, we can't
that's part of the problem.....they do well as disguising as fishing vessel's until the last moment
they should set up a trojan horse......1500 military commandos hidden in a merchant ship....when the ship is brought in to port, they spring, kill everyone in a 20 mile radius, then leave
that'll make them think twice about doing it again
Wonder why they waited till the Messiah was in office to take an American flagged vessel?...
If we leave the ships along, fine, I guess, but there was an article in a newspaper showing the port town that is getting rich by hosting the pirates. I'm not saying bomb the town but we absolutely should blow the ports away in addition to the empty boats sitting at the ports. While I would blow away ships in the water, even if that is off the table this could end very quickly if we wanted it to.

This'll make a helluva movie. What's the over/under on this, folks? 3-6 months?
Glad to see the crew went Rambo on the pirates. I was afraid the military would capture them and they would end up collecting benefits wehn we released them in the US.
The Messiah White House says "they are monitoring it"
That means they are hiding in the cellar hoping it will go away.
*stop partisan bickering*
leave it to an american crew to show the world how its done
something we should all be proud
*continue partisan bickering*
the moment the crew heard that, they decided their best chance was to do it themselves
