I thought of putting this in Great Debates, but the assholes deserve the pit and I have no desire to watch my language.
MSNBC just reported that the Somali pirates have killed the two American couples held hostage. They only good part is that the assholes when then killed afterward. Unfortunately that is the only consolation the families of those victims will have.
But my question is - what the fuck do countries have navies for? We have known that the Somali coast has been a den of piracy for several years - why the fuck has the UN not authorized a permanent task force to blockade the damn coast? The US Navy states its a “Global Force for Good” - then its time to prove it. Fuck Bahrain. Fuck the Med. I haven’t heard of any ships being attacked in those regions. But at least once a month, some poor bastards are taken hostage off the Gulf of Aden.
I am guilty for not doing this earlier and waiting until American couples were killed, but everyone deserves protection from the cocksucking goat fuckers in Mogadishu and the rest of Somalia.
I am not advocating another intervention into Somalia, but why the fuck do we have task forces and spend billions of fucking dollars on subs and carriers if they can’t do the basic job of protecting shipping lanes. And not just the US - every fucking country that has a navy and has had a ship or its citizens attacked.
How fucking hard can it be to establish a task force to take out pirates from the most fucked up country on the planet? If we can’t blockade that coast, then how the hell do we protect the coasts of America, Europe and India which are much larger? Are navies just a fucking joke?
What the fuck is wrong with our leaders that they let this issue fester and not create a permanent solution?
What the fuck is wrong with us that we don’t demand that they do?
I am sick of it. Enough is enough. So tell me, what is the best course of action - and anyone who thinks the status quo is fine - go fuck yourselves.
