Like everyone else, I'm pretty proud of the US Navy snipers who took out the pirates who kidnapped the American captain. USA! USA! Heh...I see that the pirates are making all sorts of silly statements about getting revenge on the US. Two words, guys. Bring it...
According to the New York Times
The Defense Department twice sought Mr. Obama's permission to use force to rescue Captain Phillips, most recently on Friday night, senior defense officials said. On Saturday morning, the president agreed, they said, if it appeared that the captain's life was in imminent danger.
Well, ok, I take my first statement back. I'm sure the pirates are counting on receiving stern letters from the United Nations if they continue in their illegal activities.
