NAIROBI, Kenya - US military forces landed in Somalia to retrieve the bodies of dead or wounded militants after a US drone strike targeted a group of insurgents, Somalia's defense minister said yesterday.

Along with all the others from the battle of Mog.
If we can take out insurgents in Somalia why cant we take out pirates?
“Good, we still owe the skinnies some payback.”
As long as we don’t go in with the same ROE as the last Charlie Foxtrot.
You are an idiot.
One well placed tac-nuke per pirate port/haven would do wonders...... =.=
That looks like the cold steel variant....
Good idea but time on target demands a sthil chainsaw....:o)
Bag em !
Caution, there is some foul language, but Bad Ass of the Week is one of my favorite websites.
Thank God for men like that.
BTW I had the pleasure of meeting Micheal Durant when he was on book tour. What a great guy.
Apparently we still have some men in the military that are running ops that are very at odds with Obamas interests.
It’s like we have two governments. One busting balls and one kissing ass.
The tempo of operations in Pakistan is stunning and a direct juxtaposition to our weak NATO lead position in Afghanistan.
Our men in Afghanistan have their hands tied, yet we are running constant strikes into Waziristan with no international blow back.
Our positions on Libya and Egypt also are most curious.
And why do we keep getting details on all these spec ops?
This is shit know one should ever hear about.
What was up with all the detail on the Bin Laden operation?
Something stinks on ice.
At least with the Soviet Union their foreign policy was somewhat predictable and based on some type of logic. Wrong, but logical. It's painful watching the various spokespersons at the White House, State Department and Pentagon try and explain why our Nobel Peace Prize winner is attacking six different countries right now.
“You are an idiot.”
So, apparently, you are in favor of hussein using our military whenever he feels the need for a distraction for his failures at home?
Same here. Chief Durrant was at the Fort Knox PX and my dad and I went out, bought the book, and got it autographed. An amazing guy.
Why? best to let this vermin Rot!
Blam: Title of a movie to be made about this operation:
“Invasion of the Friendly Body Snatchers”
The movie’s theme song (modified) by Patsy Cline:
about the enemy, “You Go to Pieces”
Enjoy the show!
A lot more versatile. Its all in the wrist. (I recommend the bottom model...and some black shoe polish.)
HUSSEIN has got to be the first Nobel Peace winner with six wars going.
I was EOD....had an obligation to carry a Randall 14 after I busted a few dozen fixed blades issued.
I have Kukri’s I picked up in Pakistan in the 80’s that are solid and very very sharp. Parangs made from spring steel in the Philippines and Thailand. All good for specific purposes but the Randall 14 was my favorite and still is . Been through a bunch of replacement sheaths etc .... now it’s just my hunting and go bag tool.
