I saw that story. Obumbler still didn't know who, what, where, or why and Americans had already taken back the ship. He was prolly calling Somalia to see who to bow to. Weak foreigner losers just pay a ransom.

Yay for us!!! :D

Sh$t like that warms my heart. Thanks, it nice to hear good news for a change. Don't tread on us baby don't tread on us.

Got to love stories like that. It was a merchant ship. Those guys could have said screw it and hit the life boats, instead they took the ship back.

Awesome job. Great story!

Seems the pirates got away with the captain and are holding him for ransom. They made a deal with the crew who held one of the pirates, but welshed on the deal after the buccaneer was let go.

Sounds to me that the pirates are only a little way off in a lifeboat. If the crew was armed, I'd say go get him, but it's probably too dangerous. Warships are on the way. I'd like to think the pirates' days are numbered, but we know they won't swing from the yardarm with Obumbler looking for someone to surrender to. Wouldn't be surprised if they fed and clothed the pirates and then let them go after retrieving the skipper.

What Obummer will probably do is attemmpt to re-engineer the Somillian culture with a few billion of our hard earned dollars!! :mad:

Here's the reason I'm not President, I'd restructure the country with a few billion in carpet bombs!! :D

And where exactly was the teleprompter of America at this time. Maybe he would like to talk to these idiots too. As long as they are armed I'm ok with it. It's very good story and reminds me of the people on Flight 93. Glad to know some Americans still have a fighting spirit.
