Lemme Guess ~ No “Tot O’ Rum” Because They’re Muslim?

Did everything, but wipe their shiney little arses and wave “bye-bye” before they sent them off.

Navy told to feed and free 17 armed pirates

The Royal Navy caught a crew of Somali pirates and gave them halal meat and cigarettes before letting them go free, it emerged today.

The 17 outlaws, who had hijacked a boat and forced five hostages into slavery for three months, were seized with AK47s and rocket-propelled grenades by HMS Cornwall.

But rather than bring them to justice, the Navy was ordered to give them medical checks – and one a nicotine patch – before freeing them in their own boats.

They should have left Nelson in his keg.

  1. So, this just adds fuel to the rumors that GB is now Britainistan.

    So long, old ally….

    As each day passes, the world becomes a more difficult place to comprehend. I wonder what it would be like if every leader in the world was a musician?

    Unbelievable. I work with a lot of Brits over here. They seem otherwise normal.

    No radio collars or anything …

    Was harsh language allowed?

    I bet Ross Kemp and Red Troop wouldn’t have let them get away.

    I’d say that the sun has set on the British Empire but I fear that horse has long since left the barn

    You’d hope they’d have at least neutered them first, like they do in the feral cat trap-and-release programs…

    What happens when the nitwits simply hustle their little boat over to another cargo ship and hold their crew hostage? If I was the owner of that vessel I would sue the British Government for mucho many bucks.

    Seems like this is aiding a abetting in some form.Of course, the British crew could be hauled before the dock for giving them cigs. I’m surprised something like that didn’t happen.

    And by golly, those Somali pirates will remember that generosity and never ever pirate again. What happened to the good old days when they said things like “You may fire when ready Gridley.” and procede to blast them? Granted Dewey was a U.S. guy but back then the Brits had some stones, now, not so much.

  11. tree hugging sister says:

    I call BULLSHIT! NOBODY was EVER named “Gridley” in the British Navy, Benson!

    Americans are lying barBARIANS.

  12. JeffS says:

    And walking the plank is such a low cost option, to boot.

  13. Yojimbo says:

    I think there should be more than a few politicians walking that plank, they’re not much better than the Somali pirates.

    Wonder how the crew of the HMS Hood is feeling right now?

  14. Yojimbo says:

    Maybe WWII was simply a skirmish.

  15. major dad says:

    WTF? THS, Gridley was an U.S. Navy Captain that Admiral Dewey gave the order to fire. I was saying that back in the day the Brits had a pair now they are giving the French a run for their title of “Surrender Monkeys.”

  16. Kathy Kinsley says:

    I’m with JeffS. They should have been freed, many miles from land, without a boat. Preferably in a shark-infested area.
