Bonehead Pirates Attack US Warship

This fun story of justice and natural selection from BlackFive:
It's a beautiful early morning, just a little before dawn. Out on the open sea, about 380 miles off the coast of Djibouti, you and your buddies leave the mother ship in your skiff to do a little pirating. Life is good and so are the drugs. Easy pickin's are sure to be your reward today...
Skiff
You and your 5 buddies laugh, smoke and oil the AKs and RPGs while keeping a relatively sharp eye out for something you can swoop down on and go medieval on.  After a short while, just as the sun begins to crest the eastern horizon, you spot this big beauty:
Ussashland
Being charter members of the Dumber than a Box of Rocks tribe, and having flunked your merchant ship identification course more times than you can remember, you decide this is the ship that will make you rich and famous.  So you attack it.  Unfortunately for you, it turns out to be a US Navy warship - the USS Ashland, as a matter of fact. A ship known to the Navy as an amphibious dock landing ship.  And yes it is an armed ship.
Bad day at Blackrock.  The morning turns sour and the jaunty little skiff suddenly turns into a less than desirable vessel to be aboard...


Burning skiff


Thankfully for you, the crew of Ashland takes pity on you and your buds and launches a boat to rescue your sorry asses...
Rescue

Now guests of the US Navy, and on your way to be arraigned for trial on charges of attempted piracy of a ... warship, your dreams of fame and fortune dim.  Your only hope now is the laughter won't be too humiliating when they read these charges out in front of an open courtroom.  You almost wish, instead, they'd dispense with the formalities and just hang you and get it over with...
In Somolia, we know where the pirates' bases are... we know where many of the pirates are... and we know where their boats are- all of these things should be vaporized by Navy pilots tomorrow, this would have a substantial deterrent effect.

But that's not going to happen with Obama- and one has to question his motivations and loyalties, really. Like when he snubbed the British -our closest ally for decades- because of some weird personal grudge re. what they did in Kenya 100 years ago. But it's not hard to figure out where the allegiances lay, just think "radical leftist" with racial grudges and forget about "he wouldn't be that crazy to ___"... because sadly, he is.

Might Obama sympathize with the poor, oppressed pirate scum?  I don't think that would surprise anybody anymore...




Idiot pirates, dumb pirates, pirates attack warship, pirates attack navy ship

Now that is too funny! I guess they don't make pirates the way they ised to. But on a serious note, I am surprised that the Navy was allowed to fire on them with Obama in charge.

And the Somalis are the ones that outsmarted Clinton in Mogadishu, lol

I think if they had captives or a pirated vessel they may have not been blowed-up like that... but they came gunnin', with predictable result

Even with Obama in charge the Navy is allowed to fire back when fired upon. At least for now. His sympathy for pirates is natural to any progressive, because pirates are transgressive and underdogs both. The fact that they are (and have always been) simply murderous robbers who happen to travel by boat doesn't matter in the slightest. Just watch 'Pirates of the Caribbean' and remember...sometimes piracy is the right thing to do.

Definitely not me RR.

What I can't understand is, why did the crew of USS Ahsland rescued these pirated? They should have let the pirates drown or shoot the lot. Do you really think that by rescuing these pirates and showing some humanity the pirates are going to stop their attacks on other ships? I doubt very much. Obama is an enemy within. www.blip.tv/file/1382254 www.thereligionofpeace.com Wake up call for USA

Barak Osama is definitely a Democrat, dimmer than a TOC-H Lamp and leaning so far over to the left he'd be classed as a world heritage site if he were a building.
