Wonder what Obama is going to do about this.

I heard about this too, this is what Obama will do.
since the u.s. doesn't negotiate for hostage release, he will offer them a
"Stimulus Package" it'll consist of billions of tax payers dollars given to the pirates "CEO", so they can all get bonuses.

get 4 snipers. each one pick one guy, and pop them all at once. duh.
04-09-2009, 01:15 PM
Probably true. I would take target practice. Wonder if they have snipers on a destroyer.
04-09-2009, 01:39 PM
probably not...but im sure it would only take one call to get some

A helicoptor can land on a destroyer.

Wonder if they have snipers on a destroyer.
I doubt it. I don't think the crew complement on a destroyer is large enough to include a person(s) of such limited use on a smaller combat vessel.
Snipers are probably on their way already. I'm sure they'd be able to "borrow" a few from forces currently deployed in Iraq or Afganistan and get them there very quickly.
BTW, My best man's daughter is assigned to the U.S.S. Bainbridge.

Dark of night, small seal team....
End of story + shark food.

Obama might say, "I know you guys are poor and the US has taken away what is yours and so I ask that you guys let the crew go and yall can have the ship."
04-09-2009, 03:20 PM
They need to kill all those SOBs to send a strong message not to mess with US vessels.

Use of equal or greater force is the only thing people like that understand....

I vote for a SWAT type assault at night with a SEAL team. Daze them with some flash bang grenades. Grab the hostage and leave the pirates adrift in the lifeboat.
And then run the f***ers over with a Nimitz class aircraft carrier.

First rule, never ever give in to ransom. As bad as it sounds, you must consider the hostage already dead, if you get him back alive, it is a bonus.
Try the sniper thing. If it fails. Blow the lifeboat out of the water. Then go after their bosses and destroy them also.
Anybody remember how quiet Khadafi got after Ronny Ray Gun showed him what happens when you piss of the big boys.

The navy uses VBSS teams for this type of thing. (visit, board, search, and seizure) they are usually well-armed and well-trained.
