I just wanted to tip my hat :thumbsup: to the US Navy SEALS,sniper team. They did a great clean job in freeing the Captain from those jerks.

'The only easy day was yesterday.'

Our Seal teams do an unreal job every day. Few really know of such.

What I don't understand is why they let these guys on the ships in the first place. If the crew is not armed, they should be - particularly when passing through areas of know trouble.

Don't tell me - the bad guys can have guns but the good guys can't..........

:thumbsup:

That is wonderful News, Mate and a fantastic Easter Present to his Family.

I just hope that the World Forces now join together and remove the Threat once and for all.

If ever there was a good reason to Invade another Country it must be this one.

Time the Pirates were treated like any other Terrorist in other parts of the World.

The Cost is mounting each day, time to take the Kid Gloves off.

I used to help train US Merchant Marines in the use of small arms. 9mm, .45 Cal & 308s.
I guess they don't have such aboard now? Whoosh!

I'd say being unarmed had something to do with it being a Humanitarian Aid shipment but its just a guess. Might be company policy (if so a bad one).

You know America has Seals and Rangers, highly Trained Specialists, Australia and UK has SAS, who are equal, so does each Country in the World. A combined Strike by them all would soon sort out the Pirates without actually invading.

Treat them with the Contempt that ALL Terrorists need to be treated as.

Let them see that we can play the Game by their Rules and Win.

Crazy part of it all is that part of that Aid was bound for the same Country as the Pirates? How crazy is that? The Pirates want to bite the hand that feeds them, just like rabid dogs.

"Don't tell me - the bad guys can have guns but the good guys can't"

On the news they said that none of the non military ships are armed because of insurance restrictions & most ports won't allow the ships in if they are armed !

That means the bad guys get guns because they make their own rules & the ships don't get guns because they follow the rules .

I have a feeling that "pirate" is going to become an undesirable job pretty fast though.

:) :P

Better believe that, Mate!

About time too, they need to Learn that we can also play their Rules and Beat them.

Imagine how they would feel if one of their Bases was attacked in the same way as they attack Ships? :thumbsup: :flowers:

Combined World Forces could do it easy as Pie. Then who could they complain to? :trumpet:

I think that that could be on the Drawing Board now, it is just too Expensive now to Patrol 1 million square Miles of Area. Just a few subtile Strikes would show them, Game is Over, you lose! Keep it up and lose much more.

Only way to beat Terrorists, Mate, let them feel Terror. World Forces have their own Trained Terrorists, let them be used.

:inlove: :cool:

haha Blackwater.. don't get me going LOL

There ya go. If you have the funds to hire them it MIGHT be worth it. You might come out a few bucks ahead.I don't think Blackwater is much more better than pirates themselves. hehe

Regarding Pirates.. who would imagine they could get away with so much in this day and age.

MishY,

That was tried, diddn't work, that is why there are over 20 War Ships, from all around the World, in the Area, patrolling.


Pandy,

Pirates are just starting to feel what it is like to get their dues. Like any other Terrorists they rely on Fear to get where they want. Now it is their turn to feel Fear. About time too.

Well Arrrghh all over those meanies then! LOL :thumbsup:

Yes I agree. Piracy cannot be allowed to flourish in these modern times.

I think that most of the World knows that Piracy is about to get just too Dangerious an occupation, Mate. Each one of those 20 War Ships are loaded with equal to American Seals and have shown that they mean Business.

Aw, who can the poor Pirates complain to? Most of the UN is out Hunting them?
