  1. Let me give y'all a non bullshit mainstream outlook on the pirate situation. This the shit the media will never tell you. Hopefully it'll make sense. Yes some of those pirates are Pirates that are simply looking to rob those ship for a pay day. No argument there, but not all of them are pirates looking just to rob the ship. What Americans fail to realize is that some of those huge ships are breaking international law by being really close to the Somali border and are dumping thousands of tons of toxic waste in the ocean. That toxic waste poisoning the water and the fish that Somalis rely on not just to feed themselves but also as their main export. Theyre carelessly killing Somalis and they expect them not to do anything?? That's ridiculous. Another example of American exceptionalism and Americans being the aggressors and then acting like the victims when native people defend themselves. Imagine if a foreign government got 200 miles within the coast of Florida without permission and started dumping toxic waste. How do you think the American government is gonna react? They would fuckin blow that ship up. There's a reason why they don't dump it near any American shoreline, cause they know it's incredibly wrong. Those ships shouldn't have been there in the first place. If a bunch of skinny Africans with AKs can get on a dingy little boat from the shoreline and reach those big western ships, that means they're too close. By no means do those western cargo ships deserve getting attacked but what do you expect ppl to do? Just sit there and watch them destroy their livelihood?

  2. I started listening to Joe no matter what guest he has … it always turns out interesting, he's such a great guy to talk to.
    But this is a whole new level of fascinating! Thanks so much for enlarging the likeable, graspable world by leaps and bounds!

  3. A lot of Chris kyles here in the comments. I would be willing to bet that fewer than 0.1% of the viewers would be able to take out a dozen armed pirates after years of sleep deprivation and malnutrition.

  4. Such an incredible example of physical and emotional endurance and the will to survive and a good example why you should take nothing for granted and enjoy the little things in life 🖐
