Somali Pirates: "In the future, America will be the one mourning and crying. We will retaliate (for) the killings of our men."

*  China Confidential: the pirates lost the battle; but they and their Islamist allies and friends are winning the war, thanks to the perfidious policy of appeasement, which the Obama administration is taking to new levels.

Acting like the aggrieved party, in hallowed jihadist practice. “US captain freed; Somali pirates vow to retaliate,” by Todd Pitman and Pauline Jelinek for Associated Press, April 13 (thanks to JW):

NAIROBI, Kenya – Bracing themselves on a rolling warship in choppy seas, U.S. Navy snipers fired three flawless shots to kill a trio of Somali pirates and free the American sea captain being held at gunpoint, a Navy commander said Monday.Angry pirates vowed retaliation for the deaths, raising fears for the safety of some 230 foreign sailors still held hostage in more than a dozen ships anchored off the coast of lawless Somalia.

“From now on, if we capture foreign ships and their respective countries try to attack us, we will kill them (the hostages),” Jamac Habeb, a 30-year-old pirate, told the Associated Press from one of Somalia’s piracy hubs, Eyl. “(U.S. forces have) become our No. 1 enemy.” […]

Yet Sunday’s blow to their lucrative activities is unlikely to stop pirates, simply because of the size of the vast area stretching from the Gulf of Aden and the coast of Somalia.

“This could escalate violence in this part of the world, no question about it,” said Gortney, the commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command.

A Somali pirate agreed.

“Every country will be treated the way it treats us. In the future, America will be the one mourning and crying,” Abdullahi Lami, one of the pirates holding a Greek ship anchored in the Somali town of Gaan, told The Associated Press on Monday. “We will retaliate (for) the killings of our men.”…

Analysis: Why the Somali Pirates Have Already Won


  Somalia’s Islamist-linked, Muslim pirates have already won. 

Their land bases will not be attacked; their ports will not be blockaded.

Al Qaeda-associated Al Shabab terrorist training camps will not be hit. 

In return for protection from Al Shabab, the pirates will continue to share their ransom money and loot with the Islamist terrorists. 

The United States will investigate and debate, maybe hold Congressional hearings, as proposed by U.S. Senator John Kerry, analyze the root causes of piracy, promise to bring this or that individual to justice, and so on and so forth.

In other words, the U.S. under President Barack Obama will take no meaningful action against those who capture Americans and hold them hostage. Real reprisals that could deter future outrages are out of the question. 

In fairness to Obama, he is following a long, bipartisan, American tradition of appeasing Arab radicals and radical Islam.  

For more than three decades, the U.S. State Department covered up the PLO’s role in assassinating U.S. diplomats. State played along with the convenient fiction that Black September and other groups were rogues beyond the control of PLO chief Yasser Arafat.

Bombings and hijackings of American airlines by Palestinian terrorists went unpunished. 

Kidnapping, torture and murder of Americans went unpunished. 

Worse, the terrorists were rewarded; the U.S. recognized and engaged them


A blog is insufficient; it would take a book to document and describe the perfidy. To cite a few striking examples, Jimmy Carter betrayed Iran’s modernizing monarch, the Shah, in a craven attempt to curry favor with the Shah’s nemesis, the viciously anti-American, anti-Israel Ayatollah Khomeini. After allowing Americans to be taken hostage in Tehran, Carter bungled a rescue operation in 1980. 

Three years later, Ronald Reagan cut and ran from Lebanon rather than avenge the death of 241 marines at their barracks in Beirut. Unlike his predecessor, Carter, Reagan talked tough; but he did nothing little.

In 1994, Bill Clinton pulled troops out of Somalia after an angry mob dragged the body of an American soldier through the streets of the capital, Mogadishu, and 18 American soldiers were killed in a disastrous, 17-hour firefight that led to the book and movie Blackhawk Down.

Clinton essentially spit on their graves. Obama is seizing every opportunity to follow his example.

  1. Retaliate by all means. It will hurt us – but it will destroy you – your choice!!!!

    Typical muslim criminal – acts tough when holding a gun to unarmed sailors – cries like a baby when brought to task for its crimes – and when the police leave starts bad-mouthing again.

    For those feeling sorry for these Somali thugs – they have been murdering, raping and killing along the Northern provinces of Kenya for the last 100 years – no one bothered to stand up to them.

  2. Kaw”Typical muslim criminal – acts tough when holding a gun to unarmed sailors – cries like a baby when brought to task for its crimes – and when the police leave starts bad-mouthing again. ”

    And they train in camouflage like real soldiers with balls! LOL! As if they have to be stealth against unarmed women and children!?!

  3. These Somali Muslim jihadist thugs are completely disgusting.

    G K Chesterton summed up their mindset a long time ago, in his little 1915 essay on “the barbarism of Berlin” (he was skewering the Prussian supremacism that prepared the way for the Nazi movement, but his definition applies to arrogant supremacists of all descriptions).

    Chesterton’s definition of true savagery or barbarism? – “He [the barbarian] laughs when he hurts you, but howls when *you* hurt *him*”.

    One sees in Muslim jihadists pure evil combined with a total sense of entitlement and a spurning of the principle of reciprocity; they set out to systematically, viciously, deliberately hurt and harm and humiliate other human beings, and at the same time, they cannot even begin to imagine that their victims might have any right to fight back, to resist, and to punish the tormentor; so they are both astonished and infuriated when such resistance occurs and they get their wicked noses bloodied. The Gazan Arab Muslims reacted exactly the same way: they feel they have a divine right to hurt and kill Jews anytime, any way they like; but oh noes, poor wittle us, what screaming, wailing and howling, what astonished rage, if the Jews claim the right of self-defence and …hit back!!!

    Obama is useless; he won’t learn; but I do hope that this rescue of Captain Phillips, as also the action previously taken by the French to rescue *their* kidnapped citizens and stolen property, will still have been noted among the armed forces generally, not only of the USA but of other Infidel countries, and that people in local command will use their initiative accordingly in future confrontations with Muslim thugs. Sudden, intelligent application of overwhelming force is the only way to deal with jihadists (and by jihadists I mean, loosely, any Muslim engaged in doing damage to non-Muslims).
