Navy Seals ignore Obama, kill pirates anyway!

I am just outraged enough to go throw some tea into Puget Sound, can you believe what happened in the Somalia Pirate incident:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090412/ap_o n_re_af/piracy

Now, if you have been listening to those strong on defense Republicans like Newt Ginrich (Wasn't he like a Navy Seal or a Green Beret when he served in NAM?) Obama explicitly sent orders to the Military to

"Coddle and make sure that every comfort is accorded to those poor pirates, we don't want to be seen as big mean bullies or something!"

Clearly, we have seen how the military just loathe Barack Obama, I was shocked at how effectively they were able to stage that fake appearance with the troops in Iraq?

Soldiers smiling and yelling " We love you" to Obama...

Where did they find those obviously fake soldiers?  All soldiers everywhere know Obama hates the troops, they yearn for a return to the good old days of Dick Cheney and George Bush, known warriors who above all else thought of the importance of our soldiers and would NEVER have wasted blood and treasure or short changed our military in anyway?

Not like the known liberal pacifist and appeaser Barack Obama.

Now this, where Navy Seals had to obviously ignore those orders from Obama, and create this international incident!

And, of course, the Somali government is equal outraged at the Obama administration and calling for massive retaliation against the US:

"The Somali government wanted the drama to end in a peaceful way, but any one who is involved in this latest case had the choice to use violence or other means," Abdulkhadir Walayo, the prime minister's spokesman, told The Associated Press. "Any way, we see it will be a good lesson for the pirates or any one else involved in this dirty business."

Well, that about says it all. An abject failure in one of the Obama' admins first international incidents.

I dare say, let loose the Dogs of Faux, Beck, O'Reilly, Hannity, let your outrage begin!

BTW, does that captain have solid brass ones?

I guess Americans have a few heroes left around after all, Sully and now this guy!

Thanks also to all our military in this action and especially to those Seals...

Nice shooting, boys!

I'm enjoying the comments section immensely.

I guess their hope for Obama failure

included more then the financial bail-out.

Yes, that wuss obama told the military "If the Captains's life was endangered, they were to take any actions they deemed neccessary!"

And, he didn't even think to call the French to get their approval?

It must SUCK to be a Republican today.

America is overjoyed, and they can only whine and moan...

Re: HEY!!!!

I too am shattered by this militaristic turnaround.  As one of the most regular of DD posters has reminded (and reminded and reminded and... ) Obama ran as the anti-war candidate!(!!!)  As such he is a nothing more nor less than a hypocrite by using the military for anything less than a head-bowed cut & run from the heart (and heat) of action.  What a grave betrayal for those of us who attacked the kool-ade like icy free beer at a college kegger.

All I can think is that puppet-master Axelrod has secretly swapped Barack's decaf latte with the hard stuff.

The ramifications of this action are terrifying on almost every level.  Just reflecting on recent insights on this site I have to acknowledge that the Nazis also used military actions.  Surely this is yet more evidence that Obama intends to proceed with his eugenics program specifically in order to block permenantly the desperate, needy citizenry from the health care that they so desperately need.

Sad, brutal, painful days are with us now.  We can only expect the vast echo to rise up in the land, proud patriotic populism, with mighty voice will sing strong and clear that, doomed and duped, we are all failin' without Palin.  Today's treacherous, traitorous, humiliating actions have left me profoundly humbled.

Obama never ran a single anti-pirate ad

Re: Obama never ran a single anti-pirate ad

Great.  Here comes the predictable chorus from No Quarter to tell us "we told you so".  Only this time I won't have a snarky answer for them.  Because they will be right.

This proves they've been right all along.

Re: Navy Seals ignore Obama, kill pirates anyway!

I actually thought that the SEALS had bought ice-cream and pie to the pirates for easter and they overdosed on it. Sorry my bad.

A Somali Government?

That's news to me. There's the facade of one but an edifice of state hasn't existed since 1991.

How many blocks in Mogadishu do they claim to control?

None.  The government fits in a pedicab.

Re: Navy Seals ignore Obama, kill pirates anyway!

An excellent start. His unapologetic continuance of the Pakistani air raids along with this will demonstrate that Obama isn't just about smiles and rainbows. If you won't play along, he'll cut your ass down.

Re: Navy Seals ignore Obama, kill pirates anyway!

I think Obama had full responsibility for the outcome right up until the moment that everything turned out okay.

As it is, this incident only serves to remind the country how much we need a battle-tested Commander-in-Chief like John McCain.  Don't you agree?

Re: Navy Seals ignore Obama, kill pirates anyway!

I thought the outcome was great, but doesn't anybody else find it an amazing coincidence that, the very moment that the Navy SEALs spotted a pirate pointing an AK-47 at the captain was the exact same moment when they had clear shots at all three of the pirates?

In other words, they took the pirates out as soon as they had a chance (which is fine with me).

Re: Navy Seals ignore Obama, kill pirates anyway!

Wouldn't it make more sense that they had shots at the pirates that entire time?  I mean they're in a lifeboat on the open seas - it's not like there's any cover.

So somebody points a machine gun at the captain and they shoot.

Oh.

Re: The lifeboat was enclosed nt

Yes, it was covered.  The news reports indicate that, at the moment the shots were fired, two of the three had stepped out from under the covering and one was visible through a window.

Pirates?

I speculate that Obama's next major foreign policy dilemma will come at the hands of ninjas.
