At last some good news

This is from yesterday:

U.S. Navy snipers fatally shot three pirates holding an American cargo-ship captain hostage after seeing that one of the pirates “had an AK-47 leveled at the captain’s back,” a military official said Sunday.

As glad as I am to see that we finally decided to deal with pirates in the only appropriate way, I also wish that we had done it a little sooner. Thankfully, blowing the guys away prevents us from having a huge bullseye painted on our merchant fleet – however you can’t escape the fact that we look indecisive on the international scene right now.

c’est la vie, I suppose – I reckon I’ll just be glad that the Administration decided that it was okay to actually shoot badguys.

  1. Why did it take so long? Nobama was still trying for a “diplomatic” solution when the crooks were about to smoke the prisoner. Why didn’t he authorize the snipers when the Captain jumped in the water?
    I think we need to arm the freighters and start to light up a few more pirates and the problem goes away.
