Time To Grow A Pair


There just isn't any other way to put it. American citizens are murdered by Somali pirates and the official response of the United States of America is this wobbly prose:

“This deplorable act by the pirates that stalk vessels in the waters off of Somalia firmly underscores the need for the international community to act more decisively together,” she said. “We’ve got to have a more effective approach to maintaining security on the seas, in the ocean lanes that are so essential to commerce and travel.”

These are the words of the Secretary of State, Rear Cellulite Admiral Hillary Clinton. There will be no need for the "international community to act more decisively together" because they are incapable of meaningful action. The international community usually sits with its thumb stuck up its international ass and does nothing but wait for the world's sole superpower to wipe the slumber from its eyes and rouse itself to action.

There is a sizeable group of men straining at Hell's Leash who are ready, willing and able to address this problem. They did it once before on the Shores of Tripoli and would love to do it again. Let the Marine Corps do what it does best; deliver the full measure of American indignation to the filthy vermin who are committing these atrocities.


Do it in such a fashion that the Somalis return to basket weaving, fly swatting or whatever the hell they did before they found out they could load rowboats full of thieves and AK-47's to commit mayhem on the high seas against unarmed civilians.

Let the world condemn us in public and bless us in private, we've been there before.


"Oderint dum metuant"
Let them hate so long as they fear.
It's time to go all Carthage on their asses. In the words of Ann Coulter,

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.

" incapable of meaningful action"

Does anything describe this administration better than that?

Bombs Away!

Barbary Pirates revisited: History repeats and the appropriate response is hot lead and cold steel. That's what these people understand.

There is nothing in Piracy that can't be cured by a strong yardarm and a length of stout rope.

Hang 'em on their own Dhows, then let the tides bring them back to shore as a warning to all the chat-addled Jack Sparrow's who would contemplate a life of piracy.

Pirates are not covered by laws intended for civilized society. By definition they are enemies of the human population and should expect no mercy; only a quick removal from our planet.

Dead bad guy, harmless bad guy. That's known as a Death Benefit.

Nickie - that's why this administration has an international flavor. The flavor of the day is "European Eunch."

sig94 said...

FZ DAD - Wow. I have been thinking exactly along those lines. Bring the Iowa class back into action. Fit 'em out with newclur reactors and let 'em prey off the coast of Somalia for a year or so. Then send 'em to Iran.

sig94 said...

Odie - take everything five miles in from the coast and turn it into dust.

sig94 said...

LL - if nothing else, they understand and respect brute force. As long as we use these pantywaist measures of interdiction, arrest and trial we will never rid ourselves of these murders.

sig94 said...

Andy - and a short drop. Let them slowly strangle.

sig94 said...

T.F. - quite right. They have removed themselves from the international laws of civilized society. Like vermin thay are to be hunted down and exterminated.

sig94 said...

Rhod - and like a benevolent employer we should try our very best to extend the death benefit to as many pirates as possible.

Subvet said...

Sorry, the Marines are busy learning how to cope with gay members. Don't you realize thats so much more important than protecting American lives?

The slogan, "We're looking for a few good men." has a whole new meaning.

sig94 said...

Subvet - do you mean "We're looking to pick out shower curtains with a few good men?"

Teresa said...

I don't think the entire Obama administration has a set of balls between them all. I'm all for blasting the crap out of these dangerous terrorists.

sig94 said...

Teresa - There is certainly more than one kind of deficit running rampant in DC.

The reason that the USA got involved with the war against the Barbary pirates of north Africa was because, having rebelled against the British Crown, US merchant mariners lost the protection of the Royal Navy and thus became easy targets for those pirates.

What is required now is to encourae more intervention by Russia and China since they don't pussyfoot about when it comes to action.
It's no good looking to that same Royal Navy since any pirate lucky enough to become its prisoner immediatly get the full protection of the European Court Of Human Rights up to and including the 'right to abode' for him and his extended family, free housing health care and all the rest of it.
