First off, let me make myself perfectly clear to all the pinko-commie, bleeding hearts out there.
Violence, in 99% of a human being’s interactions, is not the answer. Ok–got it.
In the 1% of interactions that it is the answer, it’s an important thing.
So, now that the SEALs have sniped three pirates, saving the US citizen held hostage, other pirates are now threatening retaliation.
Yeah, right. And guess what. There’s a portion of our population that’s going to buy their crap. It’s the same portion that thinks crime increases when you enforce decent laws. It’s the same crowd that finds no connection between drug availability and drug use. It’s the same dude smoking dope in his mother’s basement and blogging about atheism.
But you know what? The surviving captain is happy and so is his family.
As for the Somali pirates, know this: We’ve dumped more blood and money into your failed state than it’s worth. You’ve destroyed your future by embracing ignorance and anarchy. If you think you’re going to fight the world’s most powerful navy from wooden rafts, good luck.
But at least you’ll always have some people from this country on your side. They’ll make excuses for you. They’ll rant against any actions taken against you. They’ll talk about violent escalations caused by US aggressions and imperialism.
I’ll have to agree with these people on one point: Dead Pirates Aren’t Much Fun.
