Piracy and Justice

Just a few comments on the recent piracy issues off Somalia.

Great shooting, U.S. Navy! Keep those snipers active and you can bet they'll be very useful again. And, if there are more piracy events, the Marines should recreate a move like their take down of the Barbary Coast pirates in 1805 and clean house! As memorialized in the Marine Hymn..."to the shores of Tripoli,"

It's about time we quit putting up with people who want to hold the US, or any other maritime venture, for ransom. Get tough and kick butt. Pirates have always been somewhere but when they get this bold, destroy them. Go into the pirates den, smoke them out and get rid of them like the cockroaches they are.

The seas have been open to trade for centuries and when a band of rogue bums who call themselves anything but what they are, pirates and thieves, disrupts commerce and free trade, it's time to get tough and take them out, so trade can resume without fear.
