Pirate Busted in a Mastermind STING Operation

Somali Pirate Extraordinaire Mohamed Abdi Hassan was invincible after living the life of a pirate for 5 years, a long carrier in that deadly industry. He had escaped capture repeatedly worldwide, including in Malaysia in 2012.

He was ruthless and fearless and so loud he was dubbed "bigmouth".
He was addicted to the danger and notoriety as well as the loot. He fell hook line and sinker for the offer of worldwide fame as well as big bucks. He was already a sort of hero in Somalia.

Last week during a STING operation he was suckered into going to Belgium for a film contract for a role in a documentary on high seas crimes that would "mirror his life as a pirate.". The lure was irresistible to the megalomaniac crook. The Pirate left his hideout in Somalia where he had retired and sought immunity.

Belgian authorities arrested him as he landed at the airport and escorted him directly to the slammer.

His fame may just come through a Hollywood movie of how to bust one of the most successful pirates of all time.

Naw...My Vote Doesn’t Count...or Why I Am A Stupid, Lazy Loser

By Lt. Col. Robert K. Brown, USAR (Ret.)
From the December, 2014 issue of SOF

On how many occasions, come election time, do you hear gunnies come up with some inane excuse as to why they are not going to vote? “Oh, my vote doesn't count,” they snivel. “The politicians will do whatever they damn please. A pox on both houses.” Well, SOFers, if that was the case, why do all the left-wing, bottom feeders swarm to the ballot box? Because they know that voting Democratic will ensure they get their share of slop at the public trough. Or I should say, filtching dollars out of your and my wallet?
