Royal Navy Provides Somali Pirates With Halal Meals, Medical Checks & Nicotine Patches

Thanks to KGS & the Tundra Tabloids:

Treating scum like royalty? But of course: today’s UK has no enemies, only future facebook friends. Maybe one day, if we continue to treat them nice and turn the other cheek, they will just forget about their hatred of infidels, throw their Korans in the sea and start liking us.

Once upon a time it was  “Britannia rules the waves”,  today its “Britannia waves the rules” .

Pathetic, the ”New Royal Navy”. Even the Finnish Navy blew up the pirates’ boat.

The extraordinary treatment – revealed in a Radio 4 documentary to be broadcast tonight – came at a time when Somali piracy is causing mayhem to shipping in the Indian Ocean.

More than £60million was paid in ransoms last year and pirates currently hold 30 ships and nearly 800 hostages.

  1. They should have showered these priates with pig fat and then thown them into the sea and let them swim for home.
    I’m sure that would have attracted a few “great whites”.

  2. More bad crazyness in Afghanistan:

    ISAF Policy: Catch-and-Release IED-Bombers

    Diana West

    Recon Marine Cpl. Todd Love got a hero’s welcome in his hometown of Acworth, Georgia this week. Love lost both legs and his left arm in an IED explosion in Afghanistan a few months ago. The Washington Examiner story below by Sara Carter tells us that even if US forces had photographed the bomber in the act and captured him with bomb traces on his hands, they would then have had to feed him, clothe him … and let him go.

    This is another Afghanistan scandal that should get Congress pounding tables and demanding answers from the Pentagon and the White House. It should get readers doing the same. After all, we pay $350 million a day for this.

    Carter writes:

    Several Taliban detainees who had been captured in February after being observed placing bombs in the culverts of roads used by civilians and military convoys near Kandahar were fed, given medical treatment, then released by American troops frustrated by a policy they say is forcing them to kick loose enemies who are trying to kill them.

    Despite what American soldiers say was a mountain of evidence, which included a video of the men planting the bomb and chemical traces found on their hands, there was nothing the soldiers who had captured them could do but feed and care for them for 96 hours and then set them free.

    In another incident, members of a unit attached to 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment survived an attack by a suicide bomber on their convoy when his device failed to detonate. Soldiers managed to capture the would-be martyr, but he too was released after being held for four days.

    “We put our lives on the line to capture the enemy,” a soldier with the Stryker regiment told The Washington Examiner. “Since my deployment, every insurgent we’ve captured has been released.”

    Come again?

    Since my deployment, every insurgent we’ve captured has been released.”

    International Security Assistance Forces officials contacted by The Examiner admitted that releases like these were common. The officials said ISAF forces can hold detainees for up to 96 hours, during which time detainees are “screened and a decision is made whether to release the individual, transfer them to appropriate Afghan authorities, or to the detention facility in Parwan [at Bagram Air Base].”

    ISAF spokesman Lt. Col. John Dorrian said things are expected to change. He said Afghanistan’s Ministry of Interior, supported by Combined Joint Interagency Task Force 435, is implementing a system for fingerprinting captured insurgents.

    “This program is going to make a huge difference, dramatically reducing insurgents’ ability to hide among the general population,” he said. “It will also improve the ability of Afghan and coalition forces to gather evidence of insurgent activity that will hold up in court.”

    Since when do soldiers have to gather “evidence” on their enemies? Welcome to COIN.

    However, the program is not yet operational. Like many plans associated with the Afghan war, there are many potential setbacks ahead.

    Troops say top commander Gen. David Petraeus has not fulfilled promises he made to Congress last year to review and, where appropriate, change rules of engagement that have restricted troops’ ability to stop the enemy.

    Gen. Stanley McChrystal, former commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan. promised that ISAF would have control of at least 40 Afghan districts by the end of 2010. That promise also was not met.

    Troops say it’s impossible to hold the terrain when insurgents know that, if captured, they cannot be held.

    The policy of releasing insurgents is expected to continue for now, officials said.

    The Afghan legal system has no Western-style standards of prosecution that would allow suspected Taliban to be held in civil detention, ISAF officials said.

    Um, the Afghan legal system (sharia-based) has no Western-style standards of anythiing.

    “While there may be ample evidence to detain an individual, the same evidence may be insufficient to obtain an indictment or bring the detainee to an evidence-based trial,” Dorrian said. “In other instances, individuals may be detained based on legitimate intelligence, but the intelligence may be classified and thus not able to be presented in open court. In some instances, this results in the individual being released.”

    ISAF general staff meeting.

    James Carafano, senior defense analyst for the Heritage Foundation, said releasing suspected insurgents is not only a problem for U.S. troops but civilians who have been tormented under Taliban rule.

    “The real issue is what is the right thing to do?” Carafano said. “Putting Taliban fighters back in the field who may kill or terrorize Afghan civilians as easily as U.S. soldiers is never the right thing to do. The U.S. troops will not be there forever —

    Sez who?

    — and local officials need to start thinking about the long-term interests of their own people.”

    American troops say the policy is a morale killer.

    How about just plain “killer”?

    They say the inability to hold suspected insurgents is one of the reasons why the U.S. has been unable to suppress the Taliban.

    Detainees can be held at various field detention facilities throughout Afghanistan. “Capacity is not an issue as to whether an individual remains detained,” an ISAF official stated.

    “How much more evidence do you need when they are captured on video and tested positive for … chemicals on their hand?” a military official in Afghanistan said. “That’s not enough evidence for our forces to transfer the detainees to a permanent facility before they try to kill U.S. troops again? It’s unacceptable.”

    So don’t accept it.

  3. This is the Third World War…inWW2 they would have been shot…we need to get a grip, its either them or us! pathetic…and Obama is on the muslims side so expect things not to change , more US casualties while insurgents pick them off like sitting ducks in a row.. unbelievable!!!!

  4. with this same scenario playing out right here “at home”, regarding “illegal” immigrants , sharia loving judges , threats to legal “koran” toasting , the american people will soon be forced to carry out the task at hand…eliminating the root problem here at home will insure our troops morale and enviroment ! if our troops continue to exchange limbs for P.C. based engagement , then we “must” bring them home until we can allow them to kill the very ones who are killing them….if 2012 is over run with voter fraud and “so what” arrogance , the chips must begin to fall one right after the other ! and continue falling until either the lesson is learned , or the threat is completely “ELIMINATED” ! a first term president should “NEVER” have to spend a “billion” dollars to buy his second ! this would be a good place to start !

  6. Not to be outdone, the RAN rescues somali pirates from hostages, gives the “adequate food, water, fuel and communications equipment” and sends them on their way…

    [The Australian Navy has rescued a group of sailors who were being held hostage by Somali pirates off the Horn of Africa.]

    [Defence says the unarmed pirates were then offloaded into their skiff and given “adequate food, water, fuel and communications equipment” to make it to the Somali coast, and the Yemeni fishing dhow was escorted from the area.]

    Who said “crime doesn’t pay”?

  7. Bravo Inspector Callahan!!! You have a lot of support for “eliminating” the threat and our biggest one is sitting in OUR White House. Personally, I hope he spends every penny of that billion and then some and still loses. I hope the voter fraud and vote buying will be stopped this time and that patriotic Americans will show up in force to vote his sorry, socialist, muslim butt OUT!!

  8. There is some basic confusion here.

    Under Sharia it is NEVER a crime to kill a kafir. Period.

    So the evidence is irrelevant. As a matter of sharia law the jihadis can kill unlimited amounts of humanity — and as long as they are non-muslim — it doesn’t even merit a wrist slap. Instead it is double plus good throughout the ummah.

    THAT’S the reason why there is no point in sending Taliban through Afghani courts.

    Get it?
