I was kind of getting excited until I saw the Cheney Haliburtan stuff in the last picture. Obviously a joke...Damn!

[QUOTE=Von Bongo;2860410]Interesting, I thought they cancelled the Litteral Combat ship program a few years ago. Guess they found a use. Although I think it would be more effective to ues aircraft to ward off pirates due to their speed advantage and using smaller high speed boats to pursue/capture. Worked for drug interdiction.

The Viet Nam brown water PBR was essentially designed in what 2 weeks or something like that? Take a 50 Nortech with diesels, surface drives add some kevlar, a pair of .50s up front or an MK 19 40mm grenade launcher. Some Saws on the port and starbord, radar. Operate them in pairs with either fixed wing or rotor wing aircraft and mother ships like in viet nam.


Or start bulding PT boats again, plywood aint that expensive. Running down Skiffs would be a breeze.


We already have something much better than a 50 Nortech. It's the 82 ft MKV. Special boat teams run them out of the East and West coast. They have anything from twin .50's, to MK 19's, to mini guns. I worked at SBU12 when I was in the SEAL teams , and we would have them deployed at all times. These boats are able to take some serious pounding.

Well there we go then. Use the right tool for the job! Those look like bad news. Always makes me wonder why no forward armaments.

I think We should just go down there and chase them around with some "Apaches". Just the mere presesnce would strike fear into the hearts of even the toughest of pirates. We could take prisoners and sell them on ebay to pay for maitenence and fuel.

Default Wtf?

Why do we insist on giving these azzholes the credit of calling them "Pirates"! They're not pirates.

They're chicken chit punks that only get away with this crap because we let them...

This country is done. She isn't what she used to be and it kills me to say that.

Next the libs will want to bring them "home" and provide consultation on why they should not attack marine traffic.

Next, we'll put together another govt. program to fund their rehabiliation.

I'm sick of the America haters. If you are embarrassed to be American and/or if you don't like it here.... Get the F_CK OUT!! This goes for you too Osama. Use your glimmers of hope and build a tiki hut somewhere in a 3rd world country that you feel is so victimized if you want but stop apologizing for America. There's a handful of us left who don't feel we owe the world for being who we are. Why are the lines so long to get in here anyway???

And as you surrender your "rights" upon leaving, remember it was your so called idiot right wingers that fought, died, and made sure you had those rights while you were here.

I apologize for the high-jack of this thread.
