Somali Pirates Vow to Retaliate: U.S. Our Enemy

NAIROBI, Kenya — In a daring high-seas rescue, U.S. Navy SEAL snipers killed three Somali pirates and freed the American sea captain who had offered himself as a hostage to save his crew. The operation was a victory for the world’s most powerful military but angry pirates vowed Monday to retaliate.

Those threats raised fears for the safety of some 230 foreign sailors still held hostage in more than a dozen ships anchored off the coast of lawless Somalia.

“From now on, if we capture foreign ships and their respective countries try to attack us, we will kill them (the hostages),” Jamac Habeb, a 30-year-old pirate, told the Associated Press from one of Somalia’s piracy hubs, Eyl. “(U.S. forces have) become our No. 1 enemy.”

Will we get into yet another war? Will Obama allow the Military to do its job without tieing our military men and women’s hands behind their backs? Remember these pirates could be Obama’s kin people and or family members! What should be done is the ship owners should be made to hire Black Water Security to guard against the ship being taken by the pirates, which would be cheaper than the millions they pay to get their ship back. Do you have an opinion on this?

  1. Let me see if I got this right: Obama wants to go into Somalia and kick some ass, and then turn around and hand them money and aid?

    How much longer do we have to put up with this idiot?

  2. Get rid of him sooner the better, he is falling slowly but surely in the polls. So we do know that there are many Americans feeling the same as we do!

    34% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. 32% Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a rating of +2, his lowest total to date.
