"...to the shores of Tripoli..."

Is anyone else getting tired of reading about pirates in this day and age? As the title of this post suggests, we used to have ways of taking care of problems like this. What has changed? The UN should be addressing this, but that gutless bunch of idiot eunuchs are too busy playing politics and trying to talk everyone into some sort of global government. You do not get rid of thugs by paying them off or talking nice to them. What is needed is for someone to start kicking their asses and making them wish they had honest jobs. As far as I can see, this is an act of war on behalf of the country in which they are based; if that country won't do anything about them, then someone else should. Start blowing a few of them out of the water, to begin with, then hit their bases. When you are dealing with a bunch of animals like that you have to use force; it's the only thing they understand or respect.
Just my opinion.

Unleash the Marines once again,and let them play the sport they excel at. Killing the enemies of this country and defending the Constitution.

Everytime another batch of somalis take a ship and they pay ransom for it 10 more pirate gangs pop up looking for some quick loot.

Arm the crews..it will save millions.

Oh, yes. Stevie Ray and Waylon, two of my Texas favorites.

Pirates. on the high seas.
Pirates. in Washington, D.C.

When Obama bowed to the Saudi King, he sent the message to the world of Islam, that America is weak and won't fight,
fight effectively anyway.
He's reaped the whirlwind, and our country will never be safe anymore.

I am glad it is all over, and am glad we used force, and I am not a violent person by any means. Thanks for always coming by and checking on me and my blog.

I really like your turn of phrase. Laughed out loud.

By the way, put up Roy's Mystery Girl too.

THAT'S my life philosophy! Except,everyone hates me. :)
Especially the 'animals'.

Conservative Scalawag: someone needs to start putting some fear into them.

Hammer: armed crews would work, but too many countries don't trust anyone with arms that isn't in their pay.

Pistolero: there's always room in a playlist for the classics.

Localmalcontent: I hope things don't go that way, but I'm not too optimistic.

Catherine: I always enjoy checking in with you and Brian, it's one of the brighter points of my day.

James Higham: might have to do that sometime.

Ubermouth: not everyone hates you. As Joseph Conrad said:

"You shall judge a man by his foes as well as by his friends."

That applies to men and women both.
