    US Held at Bay by Four Somali Pirates

    Here we go looks like we have to have UN permission now before we act, I saw this quote this morning.

    "Moreover, any military action is best done in consultation with the United Nations to gain the support and cooperation of other countries."

    Were talking about four pirates, what are we going to do if a real problem arises?

    They also said, " the ship is staying out of the pirates range."

    I would think if we had four good snipers on a ship behind sand bags within range it would change the pirates minds or scatter them.

    I also read the following.

    "U.S. rules of engagement prevent the Americans using their vastly superior fighting power to engage the pirates if there is any danger to civilians."

    When did this come into effect, there has never been an engagement that didn't endanger civilians that I can remember.

    They said there is a Mother ship that drops off the smaller pirate attack boats.

    You would think with all the advanced surveillance available they would be able to take out these ships before there are hostages involved.

    The Captain seems to be the only one with guts.

    Maybe this is part of our new Government statigy, they can tell the pirates we will lead the way reducing our defence system and only use BB guns, they will do like wise and the Captain can swim away with only a few bumps and bruises.

    I'm sorry, but the laws of international waters state if it was american (i.e. flying our colors) before the highjacking, it is sovereign US territory and we have the Right, unabridged to act. only under Maobama would be bow to the UN on this. morons

    We canít even ask the Israelis for help now that Oboma has taken the Palestinianís side and offered to move them over here and condemn the Israelis for attacking after they have been constantly attacked.

    I have another idea maybe we could offer the pirates some Carbon Credits.

    If this is what we're left with dealing with 4 Somali pirates Obama's lucky Bush dealt with Saddam Hussein. Whether you supported the war or not, you can't argue Saddam would much rather have dealt with someone like Obama than Bush.

    According to Fox News the US Navy rescued the Capt. this morning killing three of the four pirates.

    3 head shots by three SEAL snipers, can't wait for the left to make hay out of this one, it'll be interesting.
