( another) A greek ship is taken by pirates this morning. How do you think the outcome will be?

Fox News reports this morning, the pirates have responded by saying this is in retaliation for what happened on the Alabama. How should the U.S. respond this time? This is a taunt in my eyes.

  • All of the Somolian piracy is a direct result of the inaction by Pres. Clinton way back when. The Somolians shot down our choppers (Black Hawk down was real. ) and he didn't kick their butts. He packed our bags and came home. Now, the world is paying the price of an over inflated sense of superiority because they see themselves as the people who defeated the Americans and sent the home with their tails tucked between their legs. If Clinton had given them a spanking and told them to play nice, they wouldn't think they could do whatever, whenever, and to whomever they please. Send Clinton a thank you note for making Somolia the world's nightmare.

  • Don't mess with the US! I think (and I've thought it for awhile) that the US is going to have to step up and do something about this whole pirate situation. This has been going on for a long time, just the hostage bit is new. But I also feel that other countries should also step up and help. We can't patrol the whole ocean ourselves!

  • Wouldn't it be up the the country of origin to deal with this? it's not like this is a new phenomenon, piracy. But I am sure that the world expects us to save every last one of them, then they can go on bitching about how horrible and arrogant Americans are.

  • i think they are testing us as a country and the world in general to see who is going to react and who is going to do something about it. i think its time for us to now go and help the countries that these ships came from. those same countries just helped us

  • Yeah, Obama now has experience in dealing with Pirates! Should be a no brainer...even Biden would be able to figure out what to do!

  • Apparently the U.S. is the world police officers. You know how this is going to end. Kill first, ask questions later.
