More fucking pirates

There was another news story today about yet another hijacking attempt by those Somali assholes. I'm really getting sort of pissed at these stories and I have no clue why our military doesn't simply unleash some whoopass. I've heard military spokesman and Obama administration pussies whine about the large area they have to patrol and that's why these pirates can attack with impunity and it's bullshit. It might take a long time to get a ship into range but why not just lob a fucking tomahawk at them or a predator or hell, launch a F-16 to light them up like a christmas tree. Instead of parking dozens of navy ships all over, just put one aircraft carrier somewhere in the middle and the jets can cover that entire area with firey whoopass. It's only a problem if you want to negotiate with these assholes or otherwise engage them. A 5000 lb bomb has a form of diplomacy all its own. After we turn any Somali ship who approaches into burning twisted metal a few times, I'll bet the rest will keep their fucking distance. And if not, we just have more dead Somali pirates, and that's just as good if not better.
