Blow Them Out Of The Water !

The continuing hijackings stemming from the country of Somalia makes me wonder why someone doesn't just go over there and take them out. It's tantamount to a flea hijacking a dog and holding it for ransom. The answer, quite frankly is simple. I would arm these large tankers with the proper missiles and post a very colorful large flag stating that any vessel coming within 1,000 yards would be blown out of the water. After the second or third incident, these highjackings would come to an abrupt halt. Between the Somalia highjackers and the constant email scammers from Nigeria, perhaps our new president may have some idea how to handle the situation.

Somalia pirates and their hostages

India has the right idea. The Indian navy sank a suspected pirate "mother ship" and chased two attack boats into the night. This happened as the owners of a seized Saudi oil supertanker negotiated for the release of their vessel and its $100 million cargo. The Indian warship, operating off the coast of Oman, stopped a ship similar to a pirate vessel described in numerous bulletins. The Indian navy said the pirates in the Gulf of Aden fired on the INS Tabar after the officers asked to search it.

"Pirates were seen roaming on the upper deck of this vessel with guns and rocket propelled grenade launchers," said a statement from the Indian navy. Indian forces fired back, sparking fires and a series of onboard blasts — possibly due to exploding ammunition — and destroying the ship.

It's time to start fighting fire with fire in the many instances of murder, robberies and highjackings, not only abroad but at home as well. The world is full of street monkeys and thugs and once the word gets around that crimes of this sort will result in immediate death, you'll see a rapid decrease in crimes of this nature.

It's Hump Day and a trip to AREA 51 sounds like an excellent idea. It's been chilly in Miami for a few days now and a nice sport jacket will be in order for tonight's trek. Combine that with a beautiful companion and a glass of Johnny Walker Black and that will complete the evening quite well.

A local man was found murdered in his home in California over the weekend. Detectives at the scene found the man face down in his bathtub. The tub had been filled with milk and corn flakes, and the deceased had a banana protruding from his buttocks. Police suspect a cereal killer.

This Date In History: 1759; During the Seven Years’ War, the Royal Navy, commanded by Admiral Edward Hawke, defeats a French fleet at the Battle of Quiberon Bay, ending a French invasion scare. 1917; At the Battle of Cambrai, in World War I, tanks are employed en masse for the first time in warfare, but the hoped-for British breakthrough of the German lines is not achieved.

1945; After weeks of deliberations, the first day of the International Military Tribunal’s trial of 24 senior Nazis on charges of war crimes begins in Nuremberg. 1975; General Francisco Franco, dictator of Spain since 1939, dies in Madrid aged 82. 1992; Windsor Castle is badly damaged by fire.

Photo Of The Day I am really irritated with these pieces of garbage who are flagrantly doing what they damned well please. I guarantee that I could resolve this issue in less time than it takes to take an unmanned drone warplane to fire strike missiles.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming

Doctor Johnson was driving home over the Golden Gate Bridge after spending a great day on the ocean fishing. His catch, cleaned and filleted, was wrapped in newspaper on the passenger-side floor. He was late getting home and was going a little faster than normal. Suddenly, a cop jumped out, radar gun in hand, and motioned him to the side of the bridge. Dr. Johnson pulled over like a good citizen.

The cop walked up to the window and said, "You know how fast you were going, boy?" Dr. Johnson thought for a second and said, "Uh, 60?" The cop said, "57 miles per hour in a 55 zone. I'm going to give you a ticket."

The cop took a good close look at Dr. Johnson in his stained fishing attire and said, "You don't even look like you have a job! Why, I've never seen anyone so scruffy in my entire life!" Dr. Johnson thought about the cop's bad attitude and answered, "I'm a doctor and I have a good, well-paying job!"

The cop leaned in the window, smelling the doctor's fish, and said, "What kind of job would a bum like you have?" Doctor Johnson, becoming more irritated with the cop's attitude replied, "I'm a rectum stretcher!" The cop, scratching his head, asked, "What does a rectum stretcher do?"

The doctor explained, "My patients sometimes have bathroom problems and they need to be stretched. I slowly stretch their anus until it's a full six feet across."

The cop, absorbed with these bizarre images in his mind, asked, "What the hell do you do with a six-foot asshole?" Dr. Johnson repled, "You give him a radar gun and place him by a bridge!"

That's it for today my little tic tacs. More on Friday.

Stay Tuned !

Place him by a bridge, huh? That was a good one. The pirate thing has got to stop but I sure hate to see the USA get involved in another confrontation somewhere in the world. The countries that have been victimized by these scumbags need to go over there and get in their face, BIG TIME. Have a good evening. Linda in WA

Pamela said...

I agree with you on the pirates! Hope you have a good time tonight. I'm sure you'll look so handsome! Wish I could be that lady on your arm for the evening.
Hugs Pam

I think the navy seals should pretend they are a freighter carring oil and blast them out of the water. Thomas Jefferson did it on the shores of tripoli for the purpose of 86ing the pirates,history does repeat it self

Anne said...

Sounds like Tony the Tiger struck again. Anne

Woody said...

Something should be done, 8 ships hijacked just this week.
I like Garnett's Idea of seals or maybe special ops taking a ship thru this area..!!!!

My brother-in-law navigates an oil ship. He also faces the chance of being attacked because he goes all over the world. It's a very real problem. *M*
