YAY!!!! This truly is a happy Easter indeed. I hope those pirates have families who are suffering right now. I wish I could pee on their dead bodies, but I'll settle for knowing there are 3 less scum bags in this world.

Wipe Somalia off the face of the earth. It has no government, no allies, and no good right-wing citizens. (I wish I went after this country instead of Iraq....)

How many innocent Africans will die just so we greedy Americans and Europeans can import cheap junk from slave workers in China? How many Africans will be orphaned because of US Navy Seals!

No war for rich shipping tycoons!

No war for Middle East Oil!

No war for Fishing trawlers delivering shrimp and lobsters to Europe!

Mr. King,

I can see your point, we should have tried to negotiate with the Somali Sailors. They were just trying to protect their homeland from the colonialists. Mother Africa has been raped by Europeans and Blue eyed Devils for Centuries, time they felt what our pain is like!

Quotation on Islam and Muslims by Winston Churchill:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men."

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

If this was just a couple of years ago...

Today the Bush administration had ordered the death of three misguided African youths. In their folly of harassing an American ship President Bush ordered them executed without due process. The ACLU is investigating what Constitutional rights may have been violated.
