British warships to intercept migrants off Libya

Migrant Raft Boat

“The PM would like to see the vessels being destroyed as close to where they set off from as possible to send out that very clear deterrent message.”

  • Two words: “Ramming Speed”

    • Jay Currie

      Or…for inflatables, “Harpoons away!”

      • Kell

        small arms rifle fire would be cheaper and give the crew some practice

        • Jay Currie

          Where’s the fun in that?

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            Don’t you enjoy target practice? 😉

          • Jay Currie

            Not when the other option is a Harpoon!

  • Martin B

    I can hardly believe it, Cameron has grown a pair all of a sudden.

    • tom_billesley

      Because they are patrolling, they’ll see the floundering boats, “rescue” the invaders and take them to Italy not Libya. They may puncture a few rafts (if not already punctured by the occupants to provoke “rescue”) but there’s plenty more on the way from China. All the British will do is provide a ferry service.

    • Maggat

      Don’t be to sure about that.

    • V10_Rob

      He’s grown nothing, it’s just a rolled up pair of socks jammed down his pants.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Knew a guy who tried that once. Not too bright though so he didn’t put them down the *front* of his pants. Didn’t impress the ladies at all as he’d planned. 😀

          Always use a safety pin – by the time they find out, it’s too late.

          • lolwut?

            pins in crotch area?…. u first

          • Xavier

            You should see what the kids are doing nowadays!

  • tom_billesley

    They’re all unaccompanied children.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Seriously, there doesn’t seem to be a woman or a child among them. Shouldn’t they be back home fighting for their shithole of a country, whatever that is?

      • Kaye92

        If there had been any women and children when they set out, they would have been pushed overboard by their heroic male fellow muslims. Islam, protector of women’s rights and all that.

        • bob e

          overboard or eaten by the refugees ..

    • Dana Garcia

      Mental age doesn’t count.

  • Blacksmith

    Would be fun to tow that thing out about 50 miles then put a few dozen holes in it and watch them feed the fish.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Tow them back close enough to land so they can walk ashore and then destroy the vessel they were using.

    • Alain

      Excellent suggestion.

  • Kell

    Tow them over to the Somali coast and sink the boats and just sit back and watch the show.

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    “Ahmet Davutoglu, the country’s wily prime minister.”
    Translation: “wily”= full of shit, dishonest, untrustworthy …

  • pdxnag

    Guess who is the master of “your” government?

  • jack burns

    Lay down an oil slick and set it on fire.

    • bob e

      good one ..

  • Xavier

    Greek fire.

    • bob e

      per-fecto ..
