  • Very good job. Serving a portion of led right into the head of the kidnappers is the only language they understand.

  • Pirates used to be treated to summary execution when found - that ritual should be re-instated in the seas near Somalia. A big raid to free all the stolen ships and crews should also be planned. Clean out the rat's nest. Create a multinational team and include the kooky Iranian Navy - why not?

  • that female CIA agent they rescued is way hotter than Scarlett Johanson, they need to send out spies that look like that so they will be able to easily seduce anyone they need to in order to get their information and whatnot

      Anyone who believes Obama gives a fuck about anything other than himself outs themselves as supremely retarded. You hit the nail on the head.

      Silly and conspiratorial.

      If the CIA is going to develop assets in Somalia then they're going to use locals who blend in. It would be very easy to recruit locals with a little cash. The CIA wouldn't risk a pretty blonde in an African country. What is she going to do, start asking questions about AQ?

      Just using common sense here.

      What statement? You just decided, based on nothing, that this woman was CIA.
