    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.
    Im very much in favor of the action and have always given props to the pres for fighting terrorism. However...piracy is NOT 'terrorism', it is a criminal act. Irrelevant with regard to the appropriate use of the Seals...but not terrorism.

    I haven't heard anything from Joe Biden lately that I could whole-heartedly agree with. But this? This is good stuff:

    It takes your breath away, their capacity and their bravery,' Vice President Biden told ABC. 'These guys and women are amazing.
    Agreed.

    Once she decided to leave the United States she would no longer have been my daughter, so it wouldn't have made any difference to me. In my mind Conservatism is not a compassionate ideal. It's based on Right and Wrong, a Black v White concept, not compassion.

    There don't seem to be too many posts praising the President's outstanding leadership in ordering this action. Well done to the Navy Seals indeed! But congrats to President Obama too. After the Black Hawk Down incident the decision had to take cojones.

    On the other hand, I am TOTALLY against using US Military personnel to go rescuing American (and especially foreign) civilians who are too stupid to stay out of harms way. Somalia is NOT a tourist destination or a safe place for Westerners to work. I would have to bet the US State Department probably suggests AGAINST US citizens traveling there for any reason. This woman chose to ignore that basic common sense. They should have let her rot.
    The vile, ignorant crap you spew all over DP might make one think you are completely out of touch with reality.

    You aren't even close to having the facts straight about the kidnap victims.

    Nothing in the term pro-life has anything to do with rescuing civilian dumb-asses who go to countries hostile to Americans.

    opposed to legalized abortion; right-to-life.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    What am I missing, hazelnut? She's an American citizen who apparently doesn't want to spend any time in the United States. The fact that she's some fruity, crunch, missionary/humanitarian type does not give her any more value in my mind than any other American who chooses to step foot outside the borders of the USA. Nor does the fact that her health was failing. So, what part of this am I missing?

    Nice to know that honesty is now portrayed as vileness and despicability.

    Well done, again, to the Navy Seals.

    I am with Tigger on this. Good job to the SEALS but Americans civilian who go to countries hostile to Americans should not get any help what so ever.
