How 'bout them Seals?

As my boy gets set to start his Army hitch, it's nice to see some positive press for our men in uniform. The Seals did the Navy and the nation proud - shooting from one boat to another in the dark is no mean feat, and they pulled it off as if it were.

I will even give the president some praise for recognizing that he had to give the order to rescue our Merchant Marine Captain - or risk every US flag-flying craft in the vicinity of Somalia.

Now if we could just get enough common sense passed out to allow these crews to be armed, the pirates might have to find another occupation.

To the pirates I say it serves you right - he who lives by the sword shall die by the sword; especially when you take a swipe at American sailors.
If only the UN were able to learn, there might be a chance to end piracy in the Indian Ocean. Sadly, they're too busy trying to make sure we all freeze to death in the next couple decades to pay attention to what's going on in the world.
