... of the pirates on the east coast of Africa is Maj. Gen. Richard Sherlock. He is recently assigned as Director of Operations for the new US AFRICOM. He used to work for me back when he was a CPT and MAJ in the early 90's. Knowing Rick, I'll bet he is making plans to kick some serious butt on the shore locations the pirates are using for bases. He is not going to be very sympathetic to the Somali pirates. He was also a Blackhawk pilot and knew some of the folks in Mogadishu in Blackhawk Down.

I hope he gets the chance to do something.

I hope so too but I fear obama will prevent that.

We need to kill all the pirates.
We hunted them down before so why would we let pirates do business today.

Hopefully the Major General gets to kick some ass.
some payback for Blackhawk down would be good too.

its going to get very embarassing for those pirates if he's let loose.
