Another problem for Obie to deal with.
How long do you think it will take us to stop negotiating with these criminals and simply killing them, even if some innocent victims are killed?
Sometimes, I wish we'd take a page from Israel, who has been dealing with this b.s. a lot longer, and does it far better.
Israel's "strategy" is fundamentally irrational in that unwarranted attacks on civilians (whether they actually are or are merely perceived as such), have the obvious result of functioning as a recruitment tool for radical Islamic jihadist and terrorist organizations, which thereby inflames tensions and increases violent assaults. Israel's claim to speak for Jews also has the adverse effect of inflaming anti-Semitism and thereby encouraging violent attacks against Jews.
I heard the Bil Bennett show this morning, and while he was discussing the news re: the Somali pirates, a call came in from a listener who said he was a former captain of a container vessel.
He reported that the European cargo ships, as is the wont of Europeans, are unarmed and would not hear of fighting back. He then went on to relate that the Israeli cargo ships have crews that are armed and trained, and have a complete arsenal.
They are never attacked by these pirates.
When will the world learn?
Tis' the bane of Muslim Marxist European Arab ACLU secularism.
What's taking scatmeow and Davey so long to point out how I want to push all Jews into the sea?
I do as well. I appreciate Obama's openness to negotiating with pirates/terrorists, however; there has to be a cut off point where it's no longer a viable option and we put to use the $500 billion defense budget we're paying our tax money for each year and bomb the hell out of these fuckers. A tactical nuclear weapon can go a long way in deterring these pirates from ever fucking with us again.
They weren't pirates before Somalia fishing waters were targeted by industrial fishing vessels.
I'm also told that Somolia has become Europes toxic ewaste dump of choice.
I suspect that part of what has changed is that former fishmen can no longer make a living because they're no completeing with Europe's industrialized fishing industry.
Anyone have a more fleshed out story about this?
I'm sort of curious what makes a people suddenly gpo rogue like this and I do not think we're getting the whole story here.
And creating ten times that number who will.
Well, gosh, would you look at that? Some 17 year old kid thinks he knows better than a government that deals with this situation every day. Bravo, Agnes.
