Aren't they great?
BRAVO ZULU - SEAL TEAM.
And now the pirates home bases and training facilities should be blown off the face of the map!! Right now!!
I know you’re all wondering what Obama’s role in all this was. Here’s the anwer:
“The negotiations between the elders and American officials have broken down. The reason is American officials wanted to arrest the pirates in Puntland and elders refused the arrest of the pirates,” said the commissioner...
In other words, the only reason why we have a favorable outcome is that the Somalis would not let Obama have his way.
The only thing that could possible be better is to end the day with a working gallows and a swinging pirate.
And what a Captain Phillips was; handed himself over to save the lives of his crew. “No greater love hath any man...”
Absolutely. Can't wait to hear the details of the operation.
Now, eliminate all ships and boats from the coast of Somalia so pirates no longer sail, and if a boat leaves from the Somali shore, sink it
It was now or never, once they got to shore, we would have lost our Captain Phillips.
Thank you, God for this Easter gift.
NO credit to BO for this. Captain Phillips’ & his families suffering could have ended days ago if we had a legitimate CIC.
He hasn’t talked yet. You are way ahead of yourself.
Yes! My dad was Navy UDT during WWII, the first "Seals" so to speak. They were called Frogmen back then. What a great organization. If you can, check out the UDT-Seal Museum which is located in Ft. Pierce Florida. Great history of the UDT and Seals there. Ft. Pierce is where the UDT teams trained during WWII.
The only better outcome would have been four dead pirates.
A lot fewer Somali men will think piracy is an attractive occupation after today.
I guess Coburn and Bayhs statement had finally made our whatever-in-chief to allow our Navy to be our Navy.
Coburn for president!
NOBODY intimidates him and he is NOT ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I just love this man.
P.S. I stlll love Sarah.
Americans know who the tough guys are.
The world should know them too!
I am busting with pride at the moment.
A genuine American hero was rescued by other genuine American heros (SEALS).
WHAT A GREAT EASTER SUNDAY!!
What wonderful news! Kudos to the Navy!
“Happy Resurrection Day to Capt. Phillips and his family courtesy of the U.S. Navy.”
“God Bless Our Military!”
Now we know the pirates were right. It resulted in disaster...for the pirates.
