Hello. We’re the US Navy SEALS–and we’re here to help.

Posted on Updated on

Somali pirates made an oops. They managed (and I’m sure it was to their initial glee) to capture a US cargo ship carrying around 5000 tons of food as relief for the starving in Africa.  

Pirates love food.

Pirates hate it when ship crews manage to overpower them and take back a captured ship.

The US is the only nation that fights back anymore. Everyone else gives in.

We made a bobo. Can we sue someone? Its America, right?

Now there’s talk that the SEALs and DELTA Force are ancy for a fight. Operations are in the works, only waiting for President Obama to give the go-ahead for an attack on the pirate mother ships and coastal bases.  This is the first US ship taken by pirates since the days of the Barbary Pirates. The US Mariine Corps solved that problem for us.

Lt. Presley OBannon led the Marines fight against the Barbaries.

    Do we really need the SEALs? I’d pit our skinny teenagers against these douchebags any day of the week.

    Any good Nebraska Corn Husker jarhead would tear these guys apart.

    Semper Fi!

    The S.E.A.L.S will not be called out against the pirates. I heard rumor today that the administration told the crew today that they would be held accountable under international law if the detained pirates were abused. Er…….

    “There is also the problem of keeping the pirates off the ships — once they’re on board, they will likely fight back. Pirates travel in open skiffs with outboard engines, working with larger ships that tow them far out to sea. They use satellite navigational and communications equipment, and have an intimate knowledge of local waters, clambering aboard commercial vessels with ladders and grappling hooks.

    Any blip on a ship’s radar screens is likely to be mistaken for fishing trawlers or any number of smaller, non-threatening ships that take to sea every day. By the time anyone notices, pirates will have grappled their way onto the ship, brandishing AK-47s. ”

    This quote from Yahoo News makes my eyes squirt blood! Could have, maybe, just kill the criminal pirates already! That is what we used to do….under President Jefferson. He was a Democrat by the way. Millions for defense but not one red cent for tribute.

    Kennedy reported from Nairobi, Apuzzo from Washington. Associated Press writers Pauline Jelinek and Matthew Lee in Washington, Katharine Houreld in Nairobi, Ray Henry in Bourne, Mass., John Curran in Underhill, Vt., Brian Skoloff in West Palm Beach, Fla., Christine Armario in Bradenton, Fla., and Larry O’Dell in Norfolk, Va., contributed to this report.

    That is where the report came from if we get any crazy disputers about my Yahoo news comment.

    This really is becoming pathetic. I’m proud as hell that our guys fought back but I have no doubt at all that were it not for the State Dept/Washington Geniuses, this would be over right after it started. We need to go in and clean up all the pirates and their bases.

    What good is training and having SEALS if you make them sit around waiting on whatever when they could just handle business?

    Where is the transparency Obama talked about with his administration? when asked about the pirate situation all he had to say was “No comment.”. So much for his sweeping changes on how things are done in Washington.

    Everyone sitting on college campuses right now thinks that the State Department does important work. And everyone knows that college undergrads are really smart…

    There was a time when I used to think most things I heard from the State Dept were stupid. Now it’s honestly a matter of everything that comes out of it is ridiculous. It’s an incestuous cespool of pseudointellectual snobs from a select group of select universities that serves very little purpose. These are the same jackasses that gave the Taliban 40 million right before 9/11 b/c they were an ally in the drug war. Brilliant move. These are the same people who insist on giving Hamas more and more money. Brilliant.

    It should be axiomatic that if it’s widely accepted on college campuses, it’s idiocy. That would span everything from John Stewart to the UN.

    John Stewart…LOL!

    I can’t stand that self-righteous fool.

    Here is a look at our State Department in action with its biggest fool at the wheel. Does she know how serious this is?

    It is a video of Hillary Clinton getting a case of the giggles while talking about the Somali Pirate/Capt. Phillips hostage situation. This administration is a bunch of clowns. Obama had the same problem with his 60 Minutes interview. Can they take anything seriously and act stately like our Founding Fathers?

    Obama is not such a great speaker when it comes to ad hocking.
