    Bob you should know better. Obummer will call the pirates and apologize to them for the US being a bad country and ultimately forcing them into piracy. He will tell them he understands that we are bad and that our treatment of the native Americans and blacks during slavery was what led these poor people or turn to pirating ships. I see a special bailout/pirate stimulus bill being pushed through to allow these poor folks to recover from all the strife we as a nation have caused them and the rest of the world.

    Me I would send a Seal UDT team and end the standoff. Not good for the ship or those aboard but I bet they would not try another US flagged ship

    Maybe he'll perform another Presidential bow to the pirates.

    Latest report says the crew has retaken the ship and one pirate is being held by the crew. Three others are "in the water". The report, on Yahoo, did not know what "in the water" meant. I hop eit means they tossed their asses over. It may be a sterotype but I have a feeling the Somali's are not very good swimmers

    LOL.

    Along those same lines...if I owned one of those tankers I'd have about a 100 of the meanest, nastiest dogs I could find roaming the decks in plain sight at all times.

    I would love to see a video of what actually happened.

    Maybe made them walk the gangplank.
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    I think 300+ miles back to shore would be difficult even for Michael Phelps or Mark Spitz.

    Well news reports say it was a ship that “sometimes” works for the DOD and that they were unarmed………. Ok sure always stick with your story….

    Sounds like a few of them did “walk the gangplank” so to speak

    Update: It sounds like the captain is still being held hostage.


    I'm guessing the somalian pirate community has not gotten the news yet that we are a kinder and friendlier, weaker, nation now. I'm guessing once our ambassador to the UN gets the N. Koreans lined up she will straighten out the somalian pirates. I'm sure they are "enlightened" and will respect our female liberal diplomats more than the male conservative Ambassador Bolton!
