My position on this sequence of events is clear. What is your position on this? Are you saying you think we should have paid the pirates off? Or just let them have the Captain as their next serving of long pig for dinner? What is your position on this pirate thing and the rescue? Can you stop slurping your gonads for a moment and stand up for your position (not the ball licking one) on the subject of pirates taking an American captain of an American flagged ship hostage on the high seas followed by a military attempt, by US forces that was successful, to rescue that American citizen which resulted in the deaths of three pirates and the capture of a fourth?

Is it so hard to cough up those gonads and say something clearly, that might also be meaningful, for you?

Somali Pirates Attack Another US Ship
By VOA News
15 April 2009


Somali pirates have attacked another U.S. ship off the coast of Africa, but they were not successful in taking the vessel.

The ship, called Liberty Son, is now under military escort following the attempted hijacking. It is reported on its way to Mombasa, Kenya.

This latest attack comes just three days after the dramatic rescue of an American cargo ship captain held captive by Somali pirates. Three of his captors were killed in that rescue operation, while a fourth was captured.

Some pirates have vowed to retaliate.

mlfun is too hard to train, without any natural canine skills (even dogs know when to stop licking their nuts) and too lazy to be my dog.

We can't all be consistent and open minded, can we? Or is that partisan? Wait, am I for this or against it?

How long do you think the negotiations should have gone on before firing shots? I know you will have to disrupt your concentration on licking your nuts for a few seconds to give us an honest, direct answer so the likelihood you will actually respond honestly and directly is slim to none.

It's not my position which is central to the discussion. Just to address your curiosity (which obviously is a clear attempt to change the focus of the thread), let me state I have already made my position clear in an earlier reply to YOU.

An American president who professes to be a peacemaker cannot ,at the risk of being labelled a fraud , be quick to the trigger.

Apparently you agree.

And the previous administration judged the risk of escalating a "war" with those terrorists was worth taking to avenge three thousand American lives.


You did agree.


More than 103 times as many people have been killed in these wars and occupations than in all terrorist attacks in the world from 1993-2004. About 241 times as many people have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq than in the ghastly attacks of September 11, 2001.
