I think it's really great we shot those pirates in the head!
We need to dole out this treatment to many more people, especially in this new era of hugs, hearts, and warm chocolate candies.

....A land attack should follow tomake sure they really really get the message.
Report: U.S. Considers Attacks on Somali Pirates' Land Bases
Monday, April 13, 2009
Defense officials said the U.S. military is considering attacks on Somali pirate bases on land and aid for the people there to help stop the hijacking of ships off Africa's coast, Bloomberg.com reported.
The plan would include helping Somalia create their own coast guard and train security forces, the officials, who requested anonymity, told Bloomberg.com.
Officials said the plan would be submitted to the Obama administration as they decide how best to tackle the increase in pirate attacks off the Somali coast.
The only way to make shipping routes safe from pirates would be to disrupt their support network on land, security analysts have said.
Any actions against the pirates, defense officials said, would require the support of the Somali people, who are usually not in favor of foreign intervention.

I was beginning to think they were going to try to talk peacefully with those animals and sing kumbaya around a fire on the coast of Somalia.

The thought of the Somalian coast guard makes me chuckle.
While I'm glad we dealt with that **** quickly instead of ignoring it like in the past, at the same time there is a root cause... and that's people raping the waters off of Africa when they aren't allowed.
They're fishing in their waters and making the local fisherman struggle even moreso. I'm not advocating piracy as a means to an end, but they have their reasons.

The chinese and the indians were fishing in their waters so now the fishes are not as abundant as before so they went from fishermen to pirates, so they should have only attacked those ships.
