    Re: BREAKING NEWS: 4 Americans Abducted by Somali Pirates Have Been Killed

    Ok, well we need to change our tactics with these pirates.

    Every boat taken over by pirates needs to be stormed by force and the pirates killed. Do not give them money, do not concede in any way. They will soon learn that taking over a boat and then being killed isn't a good way to live, and hopefully they'll stop.

    There can be NOTHING positive for the pirates. It must result in death for every pirate. If the owners of the boats are killed, oh well. It sucks, but giving them money ensures the continuation of the pirates behavior. Piracy must result in death, period.

    That will make them think twice.

    US killed the Somali Pirates a while ago and an edict was sent out to all Pirates. Any and all Americans captured will be killed on the spot in revenge.
    Number 1 DOES matter. These people are blinded by what they perceive to be the truth. Had they not been Christian missionaires this would not have ever happened.

    Where is that? Somalia?
    The coast? (One of the longest in Africa?)

    The North of Somalia is on the brink of having a war. The Pirates will no doubt shift operations down South away from it but closer to the Islamists who hate them

    Number one does not matter to the pirates. Sure it led them to being near Somalia but that is not why they were killed

    They could have Jewish/Sufi/Christian. It did not matter
    These people weren't Al Shabab (If they were caught by Al Shabab, they'd have been stoned to death no doubt as they are Islamists)
    But I'm telling you, Pirates do not care about religion. They want money

    Americans have a to-kill order on them.
    Wouldn't be surprised if South Koreans are added to that list.

    as does mine.

    that said, i do believe it's completely foolish to purposely travel in pirate infested waters. in fact, i think the u.s. should ban travel for u.s. citizens to these waters. there are pirates all over the area, even far offshore.

Sure. That's strikingly different than "having it coming". I can't imagine the type of religion-hating bigoted thinking would lead to such logic.
    Having it coming....like those hikers that got arrested in Iran. What were they doing? They were hiking between the border of Iraq and Iran. Do people do do safari on the border between Chad and Sudan? No. People have to be careful.
    Oh, this kind. So you think the reaction for "spreading religion" is to KILL people and yet you want to turn around and say religion is the problem in the world? I think you and your hateful bigoted rhetoric and views regarding murder exemplify exactly why your notion if a ludicrous one. "Problems" in this world can occur with or without religion.
    Again, it was religion that blinded these individuals. No religion no trip to a dangerous part of the world.

    Oh really? Do you have a hotline to the Pirates? Are you somehow dialed into their thoughts? Exactly how do you feel justified in making this absolute. Do you know why they were killed? Has EVERY American captured by Somali Pirates been killed? Are you just full of yourself that you think you can declare things and people are going to mindlessly take your seriously?
    You obviously forget recent history. Not too long ago SEALS killed pirates. And most pirates were members of the Al Shabab . So they are radical Islamists and they are drug addicted.

    Yes, I'm sure the Pirates top concern is "sticking it to the man" that is America. And obviously the best choice is indiscriminate bombing By the way, we're not "bombing" Pakistan, we're bombing strategic targets in Pakistan. Far different than the country wide carpet bombing you imply.
    Again with the recent history events.

    Had they not been on their yacht this wouldn't have happened. Had they never been born, this wouldn't have happened. Had Somolian pirates long ago been effectively contained this wouldn't have happened. To say the fact that they were missionaries got them killed is ridiculous. You could not possibly know that.

    They were killed during an attempt by U.S. forces to rescue them. Personally, I hope we adopt a new policy. If the U.S. Military boards a ship and finds hostages dead, every single pirate is lined up and shot -- on UTube.

    Nonsense. So the Pirates are only targeting Christians? They say ignorance is bliss, I am not so sure in this case.

    One American sub should be able to clean up this problem in a couple of weeks. Sink about 50 of these thug boats, and it'll send the only message they'll understand.
