The gloves have to come off, these jihadi Somali pirates have to bemade to understand that it will be only hot lead waiting for them if they attempt to hijack any ship, and if they manage to kill anyone the kidnap, death and destruction awaits them and the villages they congregate in. It’s that simple. KGS

4 Americans on hijacked yacht dead off Somalia

Four Americans taken hostage by Somali pirates off East Africa were shot and killed by their captors Monday, the U.S. military said, marking the first time U.S. citizens have been killed in a wave of pirate attacks plaguing the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean for years.

U.S. naval forces, who were trailing the Americans’ captured yacht with four warships, quickly boarded the vessel after hearing the gunfire and tried to provide lifesaving care to the Americans, but they died of their wounds, the U.S. Central Command said in a statement from Tampa, Fla.

Two pirates died during the confrontation and 13 were captured and detained, the U.S. Central Command said. The remains of two other pirates who were already dead for some time were also found. The U.S. military didn’t state how those two might have died.

On Monday, two pirates had peacefully come aboard the USS Sterett to negotiate with naval forces for the release of the hostages, and remained aboard overnight.

But on Tuesday, pirates aboard the Quest unexpectedly fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the Sterett. Shortly afterward, gunfire erupted inside the Quest cabin, and U.S. special forces responded, approaching the Quest in small boats and boarding the vessel, Vice Adm. Mark Fox, commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command said in a Tuesday press conference.

  1. Detained ! what a crock of crap, these brigands must be eliminated not placated. These dirtbags will never stop they must be taught to fear us. However our present administration wants to sing kum-bye-ah and establish a ‘dialogue’ with them. The MSM is also no help making romantic heroes and idols of this lowlife scum.

    Why didn’t they just shoot them?

  3. The eagle’s wings are damaged if not broken. Her talons dulled. When there’s no will there’s no way. There is going to be more and more of this. It’s like watching jackals as they swarm their weakened prey. Obama has no American pride or personal strength; therefore, there will be no meaningful reponse and the laughter will just get louder and louder. All it would take is one sharp, strong response. That’s why nukes were used on Japan. To STOP the bleeding and END the war. When your enemy knows you are hesitant he is strengthened.

  4. The weakness in foreign policy emanates from the top.

    What is that proverb ?

    The fish stinks from the head downwards – or words to that effect?

    1. If the head is diseased the whole body will suffer. 😉

  5. Be patient.

    The Western way of war is not about swatting flies.
