Anyone up for a WMD Q-ship cruise?
I think the USMC would disagree....
and the USN as well:
That looks loud as hell.
I heard hell called the cops to complain about the noise.
Why would they? That's the fourth horseman right there.
The effects of spreading global pansy-ism on the high seas!
Maybe we can bailout the pirates.
In for Letters of Marque
nah, the pirates have a successful business model.
We just found Dog the Bounty Hunter's Christmas Special.
in for pirate death
In for WMD's "Fully Armed Christmas" cruise...
hopefully i can volunteer under the obama administration to either be a border patrol sniper or an anti-pirate operator
No, but you probably can volunteer to be a Peace Corps negotiator with them.
Indian navy foils another attack by Somali pirates
Times Of India
19 Nov 2008
NEW DELHI: Even as the world's largest supertanker the Saudi Sirius Star continues to be in the grip of pirates of the coast of Somalia, the Indian navy appears to have taken the lead in the fight against pirates.
After a successful operation against pirates last week when the Indian navy warship INS Tabar sank a Somalian pirate ship of the Gulf of Aden, at about 10 pm last night the navy spotted another pirate ship; it challenged the pirate ship which had several speed boats accompanying it, according to TV channel Times Now.
The pirate’s ship tried to ram the Tabar at which point the Tabar opened fire. No casualties have been reported on the Indian side.
The stealth frigate successfully repulsed the attack by the pirates and sunk their ship, an official said here on Wednesday.
“The pirates fired at INS Tabar, which is patrolling the waters off the Somali coast. The ship retaliated and sank the pirate vessel,” a navy official said.
Meanwhile the Sirius Star has anchored off the coast of Somalia in Eyl, even as pirates took over another Iranian-operated cargo vessel with a Hong Kong flag ‘Delight’. US navy commander Jane Campbell of the Bahrain-based 5th Fleet said the status of the crew and cargo was not known. There are some Indians among the 25-member crew.
In the first-ever action after being deployed in the Gulf of Aden, the Indian navy on November 11 thwarted an attempt by pirates to capture an Indian merchant vessel in the region. The ship, M V Jag Arnav, had recently crossed the Suez Canal and was eastward bound when it was surrounded by pirates, who tried to board and hijack the ship, navy sources in New Delhi said.
When the 38,265-tonne bulk carrier, owned by Mumbai-based Great Eastern Shipping Company, raised an alarm, it caught the attention of the Indian naval warship, INS Tabar, which was patrolling in the Gulf of Aden waters.
i was watching Fox News
and they were talking about border patrol and insisting the new administration use military tactics and a giant wall to protect our border
imagine just sniping from a tower at mexicans trying to cross
I think Israel used to that with suppressed 10/22s. Their goal wasn't to kill though. They were ordered to shoot people in the legs.
yah that sounds awesome, just use scare tactics to keep our borders secure
i'd get a GSG-5 and just shoot people in the knee caps
those have fake suppressors iirc
You can buy them with real suppressors too.
Heck, Jeff Cooper once wrote about using a suppressed .22lr to pot people in the lungs when they were inciting a riot.
Just zap the guy who's in charge with a silent, debilitating, nonlethal shot (because, after all, you have 2 lungs, and if he hits only one, you're probably fine if you can get medical attention soon-ish), and he will no longer be interested in rioting. Or jumping a border fence, or swimming a river.
What a fucking pussy world we live in these days. Powerless against a bunch of Somalians in john boats?
That's what I was thinking? 'There's no military solution'???
I bet if you got into their port and fuck up anything that moves, you won't be having such a problem anymore.
God damn the world has turned into a bunch of pussies.
Well, we COULD stop them if we wanted too. I don't think we want too though. Let someone else step up and risk their soldiers lives, spend their countries money to fix the issue. I would feel differently if they were doing it off the gulf coast here in the States, but the way I see it - not our problem.
