    A spade is a spade, a shovel is a shovel, and both pirate and terrorist are maggots that need to be squashed like the vermin they are.

    Arguing labels is pointless. Pirate OR terrorist, they are late for an appointment with the Almighty.

    Jimmy Carter would now charge the seals with murder so I guess Obama may have one or two testicles.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    And the moral of this story on the proper way to deal with TERRORISTS; three well placed head shots. Bravo Navy Seals and the US Navy.

    Now if only people would stop calling them "pirates" and call them what they really are; Somali terrorists.

    Now the REAL decisions will come if these "terrorists" carry out their threat to US shipping and US citizens to take revenge for this act.

    The difference between being an organizer and leader is what you do to prevent such terrorist acts in the future. Don't hold your breath people.

    Here's the definition of a terrorist; many of you appear to be confused:

    Main Entry: terrorism !ter-ur-+i-zum
    Pronunciation: \ ˈter-ər-ˌi-zəm \
    Function: noun
    Date: 1795

    the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion

    Related Forms
    1. ter·ror·ist!ter-ur-ist \ -ər-ist \ adjective or noun
    2. ter·ror·is·tic+ter-ur-!is-tik \ ˌter-ər-ˈis-tik \ adjective


    I defy you to argue that these Somali Terrorists are indeed not terrorists.

    Why do you seem to think that in order to be a terrorist, you have to want to change a system or take over?

    They are pirates first and terrorists second.

    Terrorists and Pirates share the same secret handshake.

    It is beyond mere semantics; I find it laughable when the media and this administration desperately desire to avoid the term terrorist or war on terror. It would be funny if lives were not at risk now and into the future.

    The Somali's are operating with their Governments silent wink and nod. The Government of Somali should be taken to task for doing NOTHING to stop these terrorists acts; but when you have a Government that terrorizes it's own people and those of other nations, this kind of terrorist act is what you can expect.

    Just because their terrorism happens on the water doesn't make them pirates; these are not acts of robbery on the high seas, these are acts of terrorism with the full blessing of the Somali Government and possibly even armed by those in charge as a form of funding their terrorist activities.

    Only those who do not willingly suspend their disbelief think that someone can take over major capital ships, haul them to safe harbor for huge ransoms and think that this isn't being done to fund the terrorist regimes that run rampant in the nation of Somalia?

    This is again a leftover of Clinton and UN intransigence and their feckless inability to deal with the Somali crises and stop their terrorist acts and the genocide that is occurring within their borders.

    Somali's were encouraged and empowered by our FAILURE in Somalia under the Clinton administration (the same actions that emboldened Osama Bin Laden) and one can expect more of the same if we continue to lack the spine, the courage and the leadership it would take to actually do something substantive to save lives and make the sea lanes of Somali safe again.

    Calling them pirates is cowardly way to avoid the FACT that these terrorists are acting with the blessing of their own rogue Government. I suggest that in order to claim these are mere pirates, one has to willingly suspend their disbelief; which is what this Community Organization of the United States and the rest of the world is currently engaged in.
