    Can't the world find a way to kill these bastards, Harry Truman would Nuke Somalia, again, does Israel have ships in those waters, they'd know how to handle those slimey scumsuckers.
    Drop pictures of Hillary/Pelosi all over their rotten country that should scare the sh!t out of them.

    Me thinks they are gonna start being a little more careful about looking at the little flags at the end of the ship before hijacking them. Some country's ship are probably much "easier" to hijack then others. They'll probably stay away from US and French ship in the near future.

    Have all the ships paint a picture of grinning auntie Pelosie of the side, that would scare the sh!t out them. I know it would me.

    Not to mention the rise in smuggling guns on board by crew members. Its not like these guys would have any problem buying 'em while off duty and I doubt their bags are screened.

    No....... These guys are crooks, not ideologues. Crooks pick targets based on how easy they think that they can get away with it. As Clint once famously said - "Dying ain't much of a livin' boy" ;)

    There will be a little bluster and bravado after the spanking they just took, but in the end. They switch to easier targets, like those in which the countries/insurances folks involved will "play ball".

    If we were talking terrorists, with ideological motives, I would totally agree with you.

    I think you're likely to see a fusion of the two, the ideologues and the crooks.

    because they aren't using fear and intimidation through violence to push an agenda. They're just trying to get money. Would you call a bank robber a terrorist?

    They are claiming that people are dumping medical waste on their shores and fishing their waters illegally.

    would you call a school shooter a terrorist?


    this is why the war on terror is DUMB.

    Democracy Now! | Analysis: Somalia Piracy Began in Response to Illegal Fishing and Toxic Dumping by Western Ships off Somali Coast

    Also in the article is an interview with an analyst who's a Kenyan from Somalia and a published analyst/consultant. He says there's also illegal fishing going on in addition to the original problem of toxins etc. It's a good read if you want some background stuff.

    They haven't been claiming that, as far as I've heard, it's just what happened. No, I wouldn't call a school shooter a terrorist, but I definitely agree that the war on "terror" is a joke since you can call anything you like "terrorism" in order to push whatever agenda you want.

    Now we're getting into it, don't blame the pirates blame somebody thats stealing fish...........:singing:

    When someone robs a bank and a Cop catches him the Loony American Liberal wants to put the Cop put in jail and let the crook go...........:confused:

    LIBERALISM BOGGLES THE SENSIBLE MIND

    How long will it be before the Liberals have a Parade in California for the dead Pirate scumbags.

    Remember Messiah Barry gave "the kill order" that kind of messes up the do-gooders brain.
