Die, Pirates. Die.

Analysis: Obama scores win on pirate crisis
His administration passes its first critical national security test

I feel the urge to comment on the idea that authorizing the use of force against hijackers if they pose an imminent threat to a US ship captain is somehow a “big win” for policy makers, but I’ll pipe down and just bask in the glow of the victory of the US Navy.

Die, pirates. Die.

Note: The “Die, pirates. Die.” is not rah-rah cheerleading or a fist-pumping victory cry. I really, honestly, mean for pirates to die. If they won’t do it on their own, someone could be sent to help them.

  1. It’s about damn time.

    Will the policy towards pirates finally be shoot on sight shoot to kill? One can only hope.

  2. “Somali pirates vow retaliation after captain freed!

    MOGADISHU, Somalia – Somali pirates on Monday vowed to retaliate for the deaths of three colleagues who were shot dead by U.S. Navy snipers hours before in a daring nighttime assault that freed a 53-year-old American captain.”

    It’s time to cluster bomb and napalm every square inch of every known pirate enclave……

    NOW!

  3. Gotta say this (reluctantly) for Obambi, . . that’s one in a row.

    Otherwise, I agree with toejam. Cluster bomb the clusterf**k out of Soamlia, from the coast to five miles inland.

  4. I’ll wager that the US Navy, and most other forces, are near to salivating at the thought of Somali pirates seeking revenge.

    The Navy would have what’s referred to as a “target rich environment”.

    Piracy has always been beyond the pale of every nation’s laws. Pirates should be made to understand that no trials will be given, no mercy granted. Those caught in the act will have their boats shot out from under them, and they can take their chances swimming back to shore.
