I think the hero tag is more deserved for the people doing the actual mission, but still pretty bad ass.
 
2012-01-25 08:23:13 AM
This is Obama's Blackhawk Down.

Awesome.

/yes I'm normally a critic, but let's just have an "America Fark Yeah" thread here, OK?

Those poor Somaili pirates. DAMN YOU FARTBAMA!
 
2012-01-25 08:23:59 AM
I thought it was an intentionally bad joke, which kinda makes it funny. He didn't start grinning ear to ear until he could hear the groans from congress.

...from the Danish Refugee Council's de-mining unit

WTF Somalia. Fine, keep your mines.

Clancy called it again, right down to the qat. Debt of Honor, opening, I think.

Obama once again coming down against small business. I mean, what does he intend to do when we run out of pirates? The global warming will be AWFUL!!!!!

Hooray for the USA! Thanks to the Prez and the servicemen who made it possible.

If Obama can deal with pirates like this, why does Congress need to pass SOPA?
 
2012-01-25 08:28:46 AM
Hmmm... yet another successful military action.

He's really not giving the Rs an inch on the defence of the country theme they used to be able to use.
 
2012-01-25 08:30:14 AM
Obama was obviously rescuing people just to score political points. A principled Republican would have left them to their own bootstraps.

Well, Republicans can't blame it on Monika Lewinsky this time around.

Well, that danish girl they rescued is pretty hot. I'd hit it.
 
2012-01-25 08:31:12 AM
I first read that as an American Dane.
www.fordogtrainers.com
Sending s.e.a.l's to rescue lost dogs from Pirates? Meh i'm ok with this, im a dog person.

Actually the danish woman is quite attractive.
 
2012-01-25 08:31:13 AM
Apparently, the same team that did the Osama double tap. There's some dude running around with the knowledge that he killed Osama and rescued some hostages, but can't tell anyone. Someone get him a carrier to hold those brass nuts of his...
 
2012-01-25 08:31:13 AM
Can't wait for the next SEAL raid, when the GOP takes America hostage during their next pointless debate.
 
2012-01-25 08:31:15 AM
hmmm...yet another example of 0bama exceeding his bounds with regards to national sovereignty...without asking for approval from congress...again. The next step will be ordering Seal teams to perform abortions.
 
2012-01-25 08:31:17 AM
"As Commander-in-Chief, I could not be prouder of the troops who carried out this mission, and the dedicated professionals who supported their efforts," Obama said in a statement released by the White House,

Once again, FARTBONGO said *I* in a comment about the military. Why does he seek to take credit for ALL the military actions? Notice he used the words "I" or "me" in ONE HUNDRED percent of the sentences in that quote. Man, that uppity socialist needs to get over himself.

And man.... I submitted this with a much better troll headline. :0
 
2012-01-25 08:32:56 AM
If only Obama was this focused on putting bankers in jail, and fixing the economy...

/America, Fark yeah!
//killing pirates is something I can agree with
 
2012-01-25 08:32:58 AM
Obama's bloodlust is unquenchable.

I've heard no claims that this was the same group. Certainly not in any of the official government releases.

Remember, there's a *LOT* of Seals. I mean, not millions but more then three.
 
2012-01-25 08:33:03 AM
Exactly who is this girl's daddy that they are sending in a SEAL team to rescue her?

Jack Black 62: Why is it the governments job to help stupid people?


I think you misspelled RON PAUL!
 
2012-01-25 08:34:16 AM
Uh, subtard?

President Barack Obama himself authorized the mission two days earlier, and minutes after he gave his State of the Union address to Congress he was on the phone with the American's father to tell him his daughter was safe.

There's no excuse for that milk joke. NONE.

Still badass.

redundantman: Obama's bloodlust is unquenchable.


It IS remarkable. I think that at one point we were carrying out strikes on six muslim nations at once.

BTW, what was the milk joke? Were WMDs printed in the missing child photo on the side?

/didn't see the speech

Barack Obama turned oil into milk. He truly is the messiah.
 
2012-01-25 08:36:15 AM
Another extra-judicial killing by Obama, amirite?

Umm, either you've got really odd taste or you haven't realized it was a Danish man and an American woman who were rescued.
 
2012-01-25 08:36:41 AM
Jeez - this guy sends the SEALs for EVERYTHING. Next thing you know they'll be getting his daughter out of after school detention.

Well, you're a farker, so statistically the list of things you wouldn't hit is pretty darn small.
//But yeah, she's pretty hot.

At least 9 people died to save the lives of two. The US government took their lives at the request of a single person without trial. What would have been the cost of saving those two? Would have been less than the cost of the mission which cut 9 young men down in their prime. Did we even get the person in charge directing all of this? Think of the suffering now upon the families that these men came from. Their wives will be scared for life, with no other source of income and the children grow up without a father. The memories and hard lessons these men had to learn amount to nothing. They are no longer able to share their mistakes and regrets. They are no longer able to share their culture and heritage with their children. And for what, a political point earned?

WTF?

if he's so great, why didn't he go and do it himself? and why didn't he do this sooner? what took so long?

Great news for all involved. From the President on down.

I have nothing to complain about.

Well, I haven't heard the milk joke yet, just talk about it.. so I dunno how bad it actually is.
