Awww, Dead Pirates. What a Shame

It appears five Somali “pirates” (pirates my ass, they’re just terrorists in a boat) won’t be spending their share of the $3 million ransom they received this week.

som-pirates

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Five of the pirates who hijacked a Saudi supertanker drowned with their share of a $3 million ransom, a relative said Saturday, the day after the bundle of cash was apparently dropped by parachute onto the deck of the ship.

The Sirius Star and its 25 crew sailed safely away Friday at the end of a two-month standoff in the Gulf of Aden, where pirates attacked over 100 ships last year. Hundreds more kidnapped sailors remain in the hands of pirates.

The drowned pirates’ boat overturned in rough seas, and family members were still looking for four missing bodies, said Daud Nure, another pirate who knew the men involved.

Too bad they all didn’t go to Davey Jones’ locker. But never fear, in true terrorist fashion, it’s not their fault for getting killed during the commission of a crime.

Abukar Haji, uncle of one of the dead pirates, blamed the naval surveillance for the accident that killed his pirate nephew Saturday.

“The boat the pirates were traveling in capsized because it was running at high speed because the pirates were afraid of an attack from the warships patrolling around,” he said.

“There has been human and monetary loss but what makes us feel sad is that we don’t still have the dead bodies of our relatives. Four are still missing and one washed up on the shore.”

Pirate Daud Nure said three of the eight passengers had managed to swim to shore after the boat overturned in rough seas. He was not part of the pirate operation but knew those involved.

“Here in Haradhere the news is grim, relatives are looking for their dead,” he said.

Looking for the dead? No, it’s grim because the money went down with the terrorists. Too bad all of them didn’t drown. Good Riddance!

Mumbai Police a Big Failure

Here is a first hand account from the train station in Mumbai. The man telling the story is Sebastian D’Souza, a picture editor at the Mumbai Mirror who heard the first shots fired and ran to the station to document the carnage. As it turns out he had a lot more courage than the police.

A gunman walks at the Chatrapathi Sivaji Terminal railway station in Mumbai, India, Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2008. Teams of gunmen stormed luxury hotels, a popular restaurant, hospitals and a crowded train station in coordinated attacks across India's financial capital, killing people, taking Westerners hostage and leaving parts of the city under siege Thursday, police said. A group of suspected Muslim militants claimed responsibility. AP

“I first saw the gunmen outside the station,” Mr D’Souza said. “With their rucksacks and Western clothes they looked like backpackers, not terrorists, but they were very heavily armed and clearly knew how to use their rifles.

“Towards the station entrance, there are a number of bookshops and one of the bookstore owners was trying to close his shop,” he recalled. “The gunmen opened fire and the shopkeeper fell down.”

But what angered Mr D’Souza almost as much were the masses of armed police hiding in the area who simply refused to shoot back. “There were armed policemen hiding all around the station but none of them did anything,” he said. “At one point, I ran up to them and told them to use their weapons. I said, ‘Shoot them, they’re sitting ducks!’ but they just didn’t shoot back.”

As the gunmen fired at policemen taking cover across the street, Mr D’Souza realised a train was pulling into the station unaware of the horror within. “I couldn’t believe it. We rushed to the platform and told everyone to head towards the back of the station. Those who were older and couldn’t run, we told them to stay put.”

The militants returned inside the station and headed towards a rear exit towards Chowpatty Beach. Mr D’Souza added: “I told some policemen the gunmen had moved towards the rear of the station but they refused to follow them. What is the point if having policemen with guns if they refuse to use them? I only wish I had a gun rather than a camera.”

If a few of these people had the right to carry a gun this may have ended fairly quickly.  Guns have been outlawed in India, so the people are sitting ducks. And with the police afraid to shoot the bad guys, there’s little hope for the public. I’m sure glad we have the Second Amendment, for now anyway.

Obama Gets Coveted UN Endorsement

I find this to be encouraging news for the elections. The United Nations is Overwhelmingly Enthusiastic over The One becoming POTUS. I do believe they also wanted Al Gore and John Kerry to win their elections.

UNITED NATIONS — There are no “Obama 2008” buttons, banners or T-shirts visible here at U.N. headquarters, but it might be difficult to find a sliver of territory in the United States more enthusiastic over the prospect of the Illinois senator winning the White House.

An informal survey of more than two dozen U.N. staff members and foreign delegates showed that the overwhelming majority would prefer that Sen. Barack Obama win the presidency, saying they think that the Democrat would usher in a new agenda of multilateralism after an era marked by Republican disdain for the world body.

Obama supporters hail from Russia, Canada, France, Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Indonesia and elsewhere. One American employee here seemed puzzled that he was being asked whether Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was even a consideration. “Obama was and is unstoppable,” the official said. “Please, God, let him win,” he added.

“It would be hard to find anybody, I think, at the U.N. who would not believe that Obama would be a considerable improvement over any other alternative,” said William H. Luers, executive director of the United Nations Association. “It’s been a bad eight years, and there is a lot of bad feeling over it.”

It falls right in line with some of his other endorsements. Hamas, Ahmadinejad, Castro, Chavez…

Yep,  The United Nations, and at least three of the top terrorists in the world, and the top terrorist orginization in the world endorse Barack Hussein Obama for POTUS. What a fine bunch of people he has behind him.

Not to mention his associations with some fine people right here in the United States. Ayers, Dohrn, Khalidi, Plfeger, Rezko, Wright….

With friends like those, there will be a lot of wailing and whining, not to mention riots in the streets, by the hysterical left come Nov. 5. Things are indeed looking good for McCain Palin, even with all the media bias and dirty deals by the Obama camp.

More encouraging news.

The Fort Dix Dance: See It Before It’s Gone

Algore, Following in Arafat’s Footsteps

You Will Obey

You Will Obey

Do you remember Al gore? He has a Nobel Peace Prize. Do you remember Yasser Arafat? He has a Nobel Peace Prize. What do the two have in common besides that? They both advocate terrorism. In the case of Arafat, he used to. In the case of Al Gore, he’s just getting started.

As the case of Yasser Arafat shows, the Nobel Peace Prize Committee does not revoke laureates’ prizes even when they go astray, turning from peacemakers to promoters of violence. If that was not the case, members of the committee would have been well advised to keep a watchful eye on the statements coming from 2007 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Al Gore. Last month, in a speech before the Clinton Global Initiative, he called for young people to engage in “civil disobedience to prevent the construction of new coal plants that do not have carbon capture and sequestration.” This was not the first time such calls came from the man who used to be the “next president of the United States.” Last year he told New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof: “I can’t understand why there aren’t rings of young people blocking bulldozers and preventing them from constructing coal-fired power plants.”

Gore’s call to arms is typical of his environmental conduct: asking others to do what he himself wouldn’t — sacrifice. His massive carbon footprint, his frequent use of private jets, and his inflated electricity bill — more than 20 times the national average — have all been widely reported. Calling for young climate activists to engage in unlawful, albeit non-violent, action takes the hypocrisy to a whole new level. Unlike the symbol of non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi, who led millions of freedom seekers and who spent years in prison for his convictions — Gandhi was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize five times but was never awarded — or civil rights activists who through their personal sacrifice won equality for blacks in South Africa and the U.S., Gore prefers to send young activists to chain themselves to bulldozers and potentially spend their best months, if not years, in prison while he himself continues to tour the world and attend carbon-neutral Hollywood parties.

It’s pretty typical of the liberals and terrorists these days. Get someone else to do the dirty work so you can have a clear conscience. Do as I say, give me your money, and to hell with you.

Israeli Ambassador Calls Former President Carter ‘Bigot’

Way too kind in my opinion. I have some better words. Traitor, Senile Old Bastard, Worst President In History. The list goes on but those are the nice ones.

NEW YORK — Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations called former President Jimmy Carter “a bigot” for meeting with the leader of the militant Hamas movement in Syria.

Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, “went to the region with soiled hands and came back with bloody hands after shaking the hand of Khaled Mashaal, the leader of Hamas,” Ambassador Dan Gillerman told reporters at a luncheon briefing Thursday.
