FYI, if you are planning a Highjacking in the near future, make sure that the vessel isn't carrying blue collared Americans.
Damn right.

They need to start arming these ships heavily. Have a a few pirate boats get blown out of the water and this will slow down. Of course I guess that escalates it.

Well I live in the tidewater area so when these ships come in to port it gets reported just because they are showing their families and friends at the docks waiting for them.

Sew them into bags and throw the bags overboard.

Nice work! Great job goes out to the seals that saved this Captains life!

I'm worried that by killing these three pirates, we have only made it easier for our enemies to recruit new pirates in the future. We've got ot stop pushing our weight around like this and rely more on negotiation and diplomacy. Aaaaaarrrrggggghhhhh Matey!

Hopefully we send more special ops teams to take out the pirate training camps as well.

Great work by the Seal team on this one. Awesome stuff. They may not be scared of the US military, but they're dead.

Are you kidding? Pushing our weight around. They attacked our US ship and then took the captain hostage. Anything after that was fair game and they lost their life. I'm just impressed with two things. 1. Obama gave them the OK to fire on them if needed. 2. These Seals picked these guys off in heavy seas with 3 shots fired and all 3 hit there mark.

I'm not sure if you're kidding here or not, but if you're not.. really?!

I would think it would be MUCH more difficult to recruit more pirates. These aren't Islamic extremists who don't care whether they live or die, these are assholes who want to take your money and go home and spend it in full health.

Sounds like a movie doesn't it? I thought it was so freaking awesome.

Re: Pirates hijack ship with 21 Americans aboard off Somalia

now that they captured one of the thugs, what do they do with him? and don't say execute him, because that's not how the U.S rolls
