    I'm seeing a lot of armchair QB's on here saying that this is the way we should operate against terrorism. Well, yeah, that would work if all of you saying it would go volunteer in Somalia, Iran, Afghanistan, etc. Well, we're waiting..........

    Maybe you misunderstood or I wasn't clear. I meant volunteer like the objectives of this rescue. Pretty sure the only gun they got near was the one to their temple en route to the terrorist safe house.

    It's worth pointing out now that it's imperialist racist raids like these that are why people hate us, and that if the SEALs had never gone in, those people never would have been kidnapped in the first place.

    Somalia pirates don't just target Americans, they'll target anyone if they think it'll get them money.

    I understand what her intentions were, and they are noble ones. I would also suggest that she could have done just as much good work here INSIDE the United States as she could have over there, though in different avenues. Nothing comes before Ideology. Nothing.

    I've never really been high on the idea of being a father. It's not the sort of job that I have an interest in. Especially in this day and age.

    I'm 37. I'd be damn close to 40 before I could be a father (even if I met Ms. Right TONIGHT); and at that point it's too late in life to be changing diapers and stuff like that. Besides. I'd be dead before he/she was 30.

    LOL. Little Miss Perfect for Me doesn't exist. I've already come to that conclusion, Empirica.

    Don't count on either of those things ever changing.

    The Values of the Family are set by the Father, not the children. It's that simple.

    not true - somali pirates only target Americans because of George Bush's evil wars.

    I'm not sure about that. They target anyone/thing for money. We just rescued Iranians because they thought they were valuable. Or the American's on the luxury yacht. Oil tankers, merchant vessels. The pirates are there because of some horrors in their nation, not because the saw Pirates of the Caribbean and thought that was a great idea.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    no. they are only defending themselves. If George Bush hadn't lied us into war, Somali Pirates would be peaceful and lay down their arms. If we were to withdraw from the Middle East, they would all get along.

    Nice work by the Seals. There is no doubt in my mind that the two aid workers who were rescued knew the risks involved before they undertook their assignment. Whilst they will be obviously very grateful for their freedom they would not have believed it to be their "right" or expected the US to automatically come to their rescue.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
