I have a very hard time believing they're avoiding US owned ships. Better have that Canadian flag ready folks.

Re: Pirates hijack ship with 21 Americans aboard off Somalia

Why would you have a hard time believing that. These guys are profiteers, if Filipino crews pay, and American crews fight/shoot, well which group would you go after? (not saying your a pirate at all Saden )

Re: Pirates hijack ship with 21 Americans aboard off Somalia

If the pirates only go after non-U.S. ships it will make the rest of the world hate us even more. We need to do our fair share in terms of being attacked by these pirates. Especially since it is our oppressive capitalist system that has made Somalia so poor and forced these young people to resort to such measures in order to feed their families.

As a reformed pirate I can tell you that these guys don't care, they're equal opportunity pirates. If a ship is armed and ready to defend itself I am sure that will discourage them from boarding but keep in mind that preventing them from boarding doesn't prevent them from making use of those lovely RPGs, presumably a gift from mom, they're wielding. These are poor and idle men/boys with nothing to lose, a very dangerous combination. Again, if I am American ship I wouldn't feel secure and I certainly wouldn't announce my Americanness.

We're socialist country now so there's nothing to worry about. A "my bad" apology should suffice.

I used to be like you. Reactionary and hate filled. Then Dmek and Saden and Beemn7 and MattyK72 showed me a better way. We need to all realize that we are the change that we've been waiting for. We shouldn't be striving for an empire where we show the world the way. What we should be after is a world where we can all live in peace and harmony together. A world where love is the standard currency, not the dollar. Not Christian love of course, that would be oppressive. No what we need is a sort of undefined, hippy 60s love based on who knows what that is largely defined by sex and only requires that we all throw aside whatever thoughts and opinions we might have and get with the program. Praise the Lord (not Jesus) I've seen the light.

Re: Pirates hijack ship with 21 Americans aboard off Somalia

Props to the US snipers for doing amazing work, but this sounds like a job for the ninjas of the world.

The Official Ninja Webpage:* REAL Ultimate Power!!!!

Ultimate Ninjas vs Pirates

Here is the initial treatment for a NINJAS pirates movie:

The Pirate Dance




SCENE 1:



The scene opens up with some soft annoying music to get the audience super pissed. The camera will show a bunch of pirates eating chicken buttholes. Fortunately, a ninja sees everything and realizes what a bunch of bull crap it is. So this one ninja walks up to them and is like, “Yo what’s your problem?” The camera zooms directly on a pirate’s mouth, which states “Get out of here now.” and buttholes fall all over the silverware. Then the camera cuts to the ninja’s mouth with says “No,” but nothing gross happens. The audience then sees ninja pull out a huge guitar which is really medium sized and wails. But the pirates don’t explode, they start to dance.........hard, harder than the hardest blackest boner alive. And when they dance, the pirates look like a bunch of crabby and stupid moms. Everybody in the entire world craps their pants laughing at the pure stupidity of the pirates. But the ninja has A.D.D. and starts losing energy/power and the pirates start stopping dancing. (There will be some suspense filled violins and guitars playing so that the audience gets scared and/or pumped-scared.) In several motions, the pirates come toward the ninja. BUT, out of nowhere this bad ass lake appears and a huge hippo busts out of it hard. Water sprays everywhere, including the pirates’ shirts (which causes their boobs to barely appear through their shirts). Most pirates are like “This can’t be happening!” The hippo says “Guess what, it is.” and slaps five with ninja pretty hard. And the ninja says “let’s rock brother.” They both pull out expensive guitars and start wailing on them really really hard. Since the ninja can’t concentrate, the hippo thoughtfully guides his hand, because they are blood brothers till the end of time and space. Then the pirates all morph into this tiny diaper and the hippo and ninja morph into a super poop-filled baby that takes the biggest frigg’n dump in the pirate/diaper. The pirates’ scream turns into a crap-gargle (this will make audience laugh gregariously). The ninja's A.D.D. heals and the two buddies/brothers smoke cigarettes and get ice-cream and pop, which they enjoy a lot.





The End



-I don’t know how anybody can tolerate pirates after reading this stuff.

Yes, yes, that's it. I recommend How to See Yourself As You Really Are How to See Yourself As You Really Are by his Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Dripping with sarcasm these days, aren't we 70Chip?

You and I probably agree more than we disagree. I'm a proud capitalist pig. And I've got nothing against Christianity, I just don't want the tenents of it carried out by legislation that's all.

On our local talk radio station this morning they were talking about how small the British Navy is these days, that it's not nearly the size it once was. My first thought was, no shit -- what do they need with their own navy for when they've got the United States Navy to depend on? We're the ones charged with policing the world and being the chief warrior of NATO.

I look at oppression and tyranny throughout the world the same way I look at the poor or the "less fortunate" in our own country. Stop your bitching, get off your asses and help yourselves for once.

I have no unchosen obligations and I want to see everyone mind their own damn business.

AMERI-CUH!!! Sorry thats just what people say down here whenever americans do something cool. I mean this time it seems kind of worthy of it but they also use the chant for stupid stuff.

Think the pirates want to avoid the US. It doesn't sound like it.
