Yahoo! News is reporting that Navy Seals staged a daring rescue of Richard Phillips, captain of the Maersk Alabama, an American cargo ship seized by Somali pirates five days ago. During the rescue Navy snipers shot to death three pirates who were holding Capt. Phillips on a lifeboat. A fourth pirate was on board a US Navy vessel for negotiations when the rescue occurred. There's no word on what his fate will be.
This is great news. I'm so proud of the Navy snipers for their flawless eradication of the pirate filth. I just wish they'd had a chance to get the fourth pirate scumbag, too. That guy should've been summarily executed and tossed overboard as soon as Capt. Phillips was freed. If that had happened, though, some liberal group would've howled that the guy's rights were violated. And Obama would've said that America was being arrogant again. He's already stated that the US needs help from other countries to deal with piracy and to hold pirates accountable. Hold them accountable? Boy, I bet that strikes terror into the hearts of those sea raiders!
Liberals are hopeless. They'll never understand that the only thing that pirates, terrorists, and their ilk understand is deadly force. Force like the kind delivered by our gallant snipers this Easter Sunday. That was a gift almost as wonderful as the original Easter present. Liberals don't get it but the rest of us certainly do. This country faced a thorny situation and we came out on top. We killed the enemy and saved our own. America 3, pirates 0! BOOOOOOYAAAAAAH!
