What the hell has happened to my country? Am I dreaming? This can’t be for real. Why is Thomas Jefferson crying?
A few ragtag terrorists, armed with nothing more than AK47s, in a drifting lifeboat several hundred miles from land, is ignoring the demands of a US Naval destroyer, after an act of piracy against a US flagged ship in international waters; and they have to call the FBI for assistance? You are kidding, right?
These monkeys can board a freighter from a skiff, and our Navy can’t board a lifeboat from a destroyer? Then sink it for the love of Pete! Just run over the damn thing. Surely, the hostage can swim for a couple of minutes. Fly in a seal team, maybe; but stop looking so feckless in the face of a few Islamic pirates. What the hell is the FBI doing, bringing them a public defender, or someone who can read these cretins their Miranda Rights in Swahili?
The press is calling this a “distraction” for Obama. A distraction? Piracy, a mere distraction? Somebody needs to read a history book, and check with Thomas Jefferson on how to put a stop to Islamic piracy against American ships. But Obama is too busy talking about granting amnesty to 20 million illegal aliens today, to be bothered to comment on the stolen lifeboat vs. US Naval destroyer standoff drama happening on the high seas. I can’t take much more of this nonsense. ◄Dave►
