    Great job Seals.

    I don't have a Pro-Life position. I have an Anti-Abortion position, and it has no bearing whatsoever on this thread.

    Let's see here...Somali pirates kidnap a couple, and we should call that....what?

    I take it from your response to my complimenting our military personnel that you either support the pirates and so do not consider what they were doing an act of terror, or you are one of the people who thrive on confrontation...either way your reply deserves no respect, and has received none.

    Tigger - unlike some other oafs who wandered into harm's way on purpose only to (no surprise) get caught and need saving . . . these people didn't go TO somalia on a 'sight seeing' tour . . . they were assigned there and doing a job.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    And since Somalia is not a country IMHO, it has no real national boundries and no claim to sovereignty.

    Places like Puntland and Somaliland can make a case for it, but not general Somalia.
    I believe Somalia's national territory begins where those of its neighbors end, failed state or no. But we're really playing a game of semantics here.

    Nope, they "Invaded" a terrorist stronghold...in a country. We had no interaction at all with the Gov't.

    I know why they were there. I also know she chose to leave the United States, take a job with a Danish company and then to accept a position in Somalia for that company. She should have known the risks, and therefore took the chances herself. It is not the duty of the US Military to go and retreive every American Citizen too ****ing stupid to stay where they belong and not get themselves in trouble.
