Does it count if we catch the same people over and over again? Not that we have a catch and release policy.

In olden times, pirates caught in the act were summarily executed, often at sea.

If they’re muslims, and they probably are, Islamabama will turn them lose.

Once aboard, the pirates are on US property.

What the Navy is lacking today is Yardarms. With hanging pirates swaying in the sea breeze.

I was thinking the same thing — when did we get so chickensh*t about dealing with pirates and traitors (I don’t when the last mutiny happened...)

I can’t understand why they don’t just kill these people. What is going on? Why should there be prisoners to be freed later on?

You can bet that as ignorant as these pirates are, if it became known that every time they attacked a ship they would be killed, they would find another hustle.

Six? That’s greedy. There should be a rule that they can’t keep more than half a boat load. Throw at least half of them back. Don’t want to over-fish the waters, do they?

Line them up on deck,
Shoot them in the Middle of their foreheads,
Tie then together and attach styroform floats,
Then dump their bodies overboard in the sea for pick-up by their associates.

“Battle’’? What freakin’ battle? The Navy pumped a few rounds into the dirtbags skifs and that ended it. “”Battle’’. A ‘’battle’’ would be sinking these damned Muslims pirates and their boats and let them drown.

No.

Just make them bleed, then throw them over.
