U.S. Navy Seals did their job on saving Capt. Phillips and killing 3 out of the 4 pirates.
Now it's time for the U.S. Marines to hit the beaches of Somalia & take out ALL Base & Training Camps!

Great day for the great American hero Richard Phillips who bravely jumped again to his own rescue with the great US Navy sailors killing three of the barbarian Islamic terrorist pirates and capturing one.
It was the great American captain Richard Phillips who took advantage of the weakness of the Islamic terrorist pirates and jumped into the water.
Our great US Navy sailors shot three of the savage Islamic terrorist and captured the fourth one bringing him to trial in US.
Thanks God for a great brave Americans like Richard Phillips and for the defeat of the evil Islamic terrorism.
Obama who vowed top never fight Islam and Islamic terrorist pirates is the biggest loser of the day as he was ready to leave our American hero to die in the hands of the Islamic terrorists.

I think this obnoxious African dung heap of a nation deserves napalm, phosphorous and cluster bomb air strikes.

The US (if it had any balls) would level and burn down every stinking town, village and dung hut in that primate infested part of the world.

In addition to military action there should be no more UN food shipments permitted into Africa. Let the primates starve.

When every Somali town, villages and dung hut has been burnt to the ground, they won't have any means of continuing their pirating actions.

Problem solved.

The reason the US won't defend itself against Somali aggression, is because the US is only permitted to serve the interests of the Parasite state of Israel.

The US will gladly fight all of Israels enemies in the Mid East, while opening its own borders to turd world invasion. And while we're mired in Irac and Afghanistan (nations that did absolutely nothing to the US) the US won't lift a finger to defend itself against Somalia or get rid of the millions of illegal aliens.

I think the US should wage war against Israel and Somalia.

Instead of giving Somalia the treatment they deserve like we did in Afghanistan and Irac, the US government will give Somalia a sweaty negro lovin hug, in the form of food shipments and Economic aid.

The US will then gladly take in thousands of Somali negro refugees and plant them in rural white towns and neighborhoods, with welfare, foodstamps and Affirmative Action benefits.

The controlled media will then sing praise about how our culture is being "enriched" by these Samali refugees.

A nation that won't defend itself or its own borders doesn't deserve to exist.

Who is the CIC again ?

The Navy SEALs are the extension of his representation of you in far-flung waters. They don't jump unless he lets them.

So, thank you, President Obama.

Way to go, SEALs! Just wish you'd took out the 4th one as well. Somalia is not a country - it's a lawless wilderness. How long before the navies of the world decide to start patrolling the Horn to protect shipping? The British Navy broke the 18th century pirates. Maybe they need to step in again.

Congratulations United States Navy!!!

We should keep some submarines in the area, find the mother ships that launch these pirate attacks and torpedo them into Davie Jones locker.

THat's how we do it, BABBBBBBY!...I figured, as many did, that once the Capt make the second attempt to jump overboard that the froggies were sittin' waiting with crosshairs trained on each of those fools...no gas, no food, no water to drink...all we had to do was wait for the right opportunity...and it came...anybody who attempts to make this political is a COWARD...those are Americans, NOT Republicans, NOT Democrats, but Americans...END OF STORY

the captain jumped overboard again giving gunners on the destroyer the opportunity to fire on the boat knowing he wasn't in it. obammy had nothing to do with it, all he ordered is the fbi to negotiate ransom.

captain is the hero for saving his own butt, the gunners on the destroyer are heros for being more on the ball than they were the other day when they missed the same opportunity.
