    For the record, if anything the folks of Somalia are known for being tall. They're not "little pigmy mofos."

    I realize those folks are in dire straits over there but it ain't my problem. It's THEIR problem. Their culture, by design it seems, prevents them from being much more than they already are. They make their own bed so let them sleep on their piss-stenched mattresses. But, DON'T TREAD ON ME!" If they insist on making their problem our problem, let's give some REAL problems to deal with.
    I don't agree that they themselves are responsible for the entirety of the problems in the region. As to the rest of this I have no idea what it would be like to be born on the horn of Africa but I imagine it's a tad different than saying to some American teen, "meh, pick yourself up by your bootstraps.


    Yessir. F*** those retards! I have no human sympathy for those cockroach people.
    Moderator's Warning:
    Should the U.S. Navy shell Somali villages that harbor pirates? Really, can we chill just a bit on the hate speech? It's embarrassing, even for me and I have a thick tolerance level.

    There is no law involved here. Pirates are attacking other nations' commercial vessels. While they may be lacking the political orientation of terrorists, they are committing what amounts to an act of war. We should respond in kind.

    In the case of the villages, the combatants (pirates) are being given shelter, aid, comfort, and resources by the villagers. The villages are therefore legitimate targets.

    If the villagers don't want to be targets, let them turn the pirates out and deny them safe harbor. Their choice entirely.
    Practically speaking the problem with this is that the villagers are in many cases starving fishermen who own nothing. The ones who do have food and income at this time are more than likely getting it off the graces of pirates who have brought food, money, and equipment in.

    The pirates on the other hand have weapons, money, food, tools, etc.

    How are the villagers supposed to turn the pirates out in such a case?

    Even if they were to decide that it was in their own benefit to rid themselves of the pirates in their midst just how in the hell are they supposed to do so? There is no law and order. A newbie government that's yet to really get off the ground can provide them with no protection or backup in eliminating pirates. Personally I just don't see how they could do it when they have nothing and the pirates are now equipped with all manner of modern weaponry.

    F*** those little pigmy mother*******.

    I am sick and tired of our country being anchored down from progress because of some 3rd world, ignorant, nasty, archaic culture bent on stupidity.

    I realize those folks are in dire straits over there but it ain't my problem. It's THEIR problem. Their culture, by design it seems, prevents them from being much more than they already are. They make their own bed so let them sleep on their piss-stenched mattresses. But, DON'T TREAD ON ME!" If they insist on making their problem our problem, let's give some REAL problems to deal with.

    You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. You can give them all the rice stuffed care packages and financial aid you got and they will STILL be a low-life form of parasitic sub-humanity bent on all the low-character traits known to mankind.

    I would give the tribal elders in Somilia 30 days to deal with their own trash and eliminate those engaging in the piracy industry or get the f*** out of the way while we carpet bomb every square inch of that sh**-hole of a country they call Somalia.

    Yessir. F*** those retards! I have no human sympathy for those cockroach people.

    And to think, I'm having a rather good day.

    Catch me on a bad day and I might even be a littler harsher in my opinion.

    They need to just continue what they did when rescuing the Captn. Fighting the actual pirates on the seas while in the midst of hostage taking/piracy. At the very least it will make them think twice about stealing US ships. If the international community follows suit and everyone ceases paying ransoms perhaps the ship stealing will stop.

    I couldn't support just random shelling of the coastal villages. Most of those people have nothing and literally no means of protecting themselves against such actions. It would be like ripping the legs off of a baby in the hopes that daddy quits being an asshole.

    Methinks I might have been a little too brash in my commentary. Perhaps I shouldn't post here before I've had my coffee.

    Sorry 'bout that Talloulou. I got the message though. I'll tone it down a bit. ()

    I understand what you are saying, You have a gift to try and see the good and I really do respect that, Its one of the things I like about you buy sweety.

    These people have had far too many chances to pull themselves out of the hell hole they live in. They picked something else.

    Thanks. Talk of killing in war talk is inevitable. Killing as strategy is often necessary and is completely acceptable as war talk strategy. But references to cockroach people who no one will miss in regards to the entire Somali population starts you sounding like a KKK racist nutter.
