    Dead men tell no Tales, cut an arm off of each one of them and send them back home. Kind of hard to climb on to a ship with one arm isn't it?
    Should not be long before you either have a bunch of one armed gangstas or a trembling populace afraid to Jack another boat.
    Yes, I know it would be curel and breed more terrorists but life is tough but tougher if you F WITH THE U.S.A.!

    I suspect that the USS Bainbridge embarked a SEAL team while they were enroute. The folks will talk maybe a day or two and then when it gets dark, the team will go for a swim.

    Now Corey, come on; you know this is really all our fault. I just put this on the main page but if you want to be truly DISGUSTED read this liberal cow manure about how we shouldn't be trying to punish them when we are the real criminals.

    Just look at the little picture of this schizoid Eurotrash reporter and imagine him dropped off in Mogadishu for a month or two.....

    Did we expect starving Somalians to stand passively on their beaches, paddling in our nuclear waste, and watch us snatch their fish to eat in restaurants in London and Paris and Rome? We didn't act on those crimes - but when some of the fishermen responded by disrupting the transit-corridor for 20 percent of the world's oil supply, we begin to shriek about "evil." If we really want to deal with piracy, we need to stop its root cause - our crimes - before we send in the gun-boats to root out Somalia's criminals.

    Under international law the countries involved can treat pirates as' enemies of mankind'. What needs to be done is to arrest a few of these jackals and keel haul them before we make them walk the plank. Then recover the corpses and send them back to their counrty of origin with a video.

    Fwiw, Merriam-Webster defines piracy as 1: an act of robbery on the high seas.

    Kidnapping, extortion and murder exceed that by just a bit don't you think?

    This namby-pamby "man caused diasters" crap and "overseas contingencies" garbage are are like engraved invitations to "war-like act committed by a nonstate actor" (as Wikipdia puts it).

    If this country is going to survive the next 4 years, it's going to take Divine intervention.

    So far, the reaction by modern Democrats has been less than inspiring. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry has threatened to hold hearings! That should strike fear into the hearts of the pirates. What will the Obama administration do if the pirates are captured alive? He won’t sent them to Gitmo, which he is closing down. Will they get ACLU lawyers? Will there be testimony from a “pirates rights” group? Will they be released on a technicality after a trial in U.S. courts? If there is not as forceful a response as there was during the Jefferson administration, it will invite more of these incidents. The world’s tyrants are watching to see how President Obama reacts. The message they get will determine how they respond to America and whether we will be in greater peril.

    OK, that's enough from me today. The La. Dept of Agriculture estimates that over 3 million pounds of crawfish will be consumed this weekend in Looisiana and I plan on eating my fair share!

    According to Fox those scumbags are demanding $2 million in ransom for the captain of the ship.

    This is turning into a real furball. In addition to a Aegis destroyer and a Perry class frigate, there is an amphibious assault ship enroute (don't know if the Marines are embarked but I would guess so). That is an immense force but they are stymied for now it would seem and the bad guys are bringing more hostages and ships.

    ************
    NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The American captain held hostage by four Somali pirates made a desperate escape attempt Friday but was recaptured after they fired shots, and officials said other pirates sought to reinforce their colleagues by sailing hijacked ships with other captives aboard to the scene of the standoff. A Somali in contact with a pirate leader said the captors want a ransom and are ready to kill the hostage, Capt. Richard Phillips, if attacked.

    The U.S. was bolstering its force by dispatching other warships to the site off the Horn of Africa, where a U.S. destroyer shadowed the drifting lifeboat carrying Phillips. He was taken hostage in the pirates' failed effort to hijack the cargo ship Maersk Alabama on Wednesday.
