    When is the United States Navy going to shut down Somali Pirates who are Terrorizing the the high seas off the coast of Somalia?. The current situation could have been avoided, if only
    the U.S. navy was patrolling the waters off the cost of Somalia. Get the U.S. Navy seals
    involved in the removal and elimination of these Terrorists on Water!?
    No other country is dealing with this issue, it is up to the U.S. Navy to police those waters.

    It's a big ocean, 52nd,. How much are you willing to spend on this? Or, is it the responsibility of the freight shippers to protect their cargos?

    Piracy has been a big issue since before the days of Julius Caesar.

    You can rest assured the US Navy has been ordered to stand down. Would you have expected any other order with this appeasement, Socialist cabal in charge.
    So far Obama, aka POS has refused to even acknowledge the existence of a pirate, hostage problem. You can be certain as soon as he agrees to pay the ransom, his next official act will be to pardon the brave Somali freedom fighters.

    aka - you got any proof of that ridiculous statement ? Are you calling the entire us navy a bunch of cowardly libs ? Or just Obama. you want us to think he's hiding in his office, scared and crying and biting his nails, is that it ?
    Everything you say is twisted like a swizzle stick chewed by a meth addict in rehab. Factually wrong and based on lies, or worse - based upon your own twisted bilous imagination.
    I pester on this current event because I have a personal stake in this particular situation. And also because I am very familiar with operations on naval and merchant vessels, in those waters and ports. And I pester because I refuse to allow ignorant slimewipers from spreading their disgusting filth unchallenged.

    I'm figuring the press will use this to over shaddow the Tea Party.

    Ok WAH, you can consider me challenged. I made no comment about the ability of the Navy to do it's duty other than they are following orders, which is commendable. The Navy has a huge arsenal of offensive tactics at it's disposal. The only reasonable explanation for this charade continuing, is they have been ordered to stand down. Obama, aka POS has not commented about the situation which I fine odd. If not just to reassure the family of the hostage that everything is being done to gain his safe return, However, not a peep. Granted, this is just my opinion but not as wild as you claim. I know nothing of swizzle stick chewing so I will leave that to the more familiar and experienced swizzle stick chewers such as you.

    Good work, aka...I applaud your continual efforts to make Republicans look like slime balls. You and Glenn Beck between you should keep Republicans out of office for the next century.

    Why should I care Ravi? I am leaning Libertarian but still an Independent. Besides, you can't tell the difference between the two parties. I like Glen Beck, he's got the nerve to say what others won't.
