    1 Pirate In Custody Following 1 way firefight Between Somali Bandits And U.S. Navy

    The only bad part is that three pirates probably didnt know what hit them or experience the head of the guy across from them exploding...

    .. unchristian on this day, I admit.
    Well, I'll get over it and say a silent prayer asking forgiveness.

    Actually there's a lesson in this for this day.. Jesus sacrificed himself for us, and he never said to turn your neighbor's cheek or leave him vulnerable to pain and death.

    Headline of the Day: From the Telegraph: US sea captain 'released' by Somali pirates

    .... on account of them being suddenly dead and not really caring, anymore.

    Gotta love it.. the nuance, the pathos. And yes I'm going to move this to YRTN, soon

    Great stuff. It's great to hear he is safe and is on my old ship the Boxer.

    Haha. I have to give credit to Obama, he's not averse to killing people. He's as much a cowboy as G.W. ever was. Drones over Pakistan, snipers on ships in the Horn of Africa, god bless America!!!
