(Excerpt) Read more at CBSNEWS.COM ...
Butt-kicking Americans prevented Obama from having to show his yellow streak. Nice.
If this is true, I hope the pirates went overboard with their hands tied and got sucked back through the screws. Sharks and plankton gotta eat too, y’know.
Good idea, if you’re able to chum for sharks first. Pirates are the cesspool sludge of the earth. We knew how to treat them 250 years ago - apparently some valiant Civilian Mariners haven’t forgotten.
So...this couldn’t be true.....Our President didn’t have time to send Hillary over to have tea and crumpets with the pirates, prostrate herself before the pirates, apologize for our past, current, and future sins, and then ask for the captives to be released, pretty please.
Beat. His. Ass.
... like 'Fight Club'.
What an abuse of the pirates rights.
Wow! The crew is going to be in a lot of trouble when they get to port. They weren’t in Texas so home defense will not be available as a defense in court.
“Just because a bunch of LIVs elected a do nothing weakling doesnt mean Americans are do nothing weaklings.”
True but the pirates were kept in check because they feared the wrath of the U.S. Navy coming down on them.
Apparently, they don’t anymore. Dangerous turning point here.
Feed the bastards to the sharks! LOL.
I don’t doubt the American zeal but I do doubt CBS, am waiting for verification.
Obama will be upset, no apologizing today I guess?
It will make a great movie! Congratulations to the American crew!
...Only after Kielhalen...
I’m seeing nothing at the link that indicates what you posted. Fox running a story right now about this hijacking, with no mention of any resolution.
I am sure Obama will be VERY firm, telling American Citizens how to treat pirates is probably very high on his list of things he will apologize for, in the next few weeks.
Nothing on the web yet ... but just repeated on WBT Charlotte via a “Pentagon Military Spokesman”
You’re effing kidding me!
The American crew jumped the Pirates and threw three overboard and captured one? Watch the demand for American-crewed vessels to skyrocket.
BTW, nothing on FOX confirming this.
