2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
And that also leads me to think that you are either a <fill-in-the-blank-here-from above> apologist and/or an outright supporter of piracy in principle, if not in deed.
You will never be able to rationalize, or justify to me, any redeeming factors these <self-edit for Tallulah> pirate's possess.
So we might as well talk about something else. We will never come to terms.

Wow ... look at your Madrasa training at work. Wouldn't your brainwashers be proud!
You should be ashamed of yourself.
If you defend criminals, YOU ARE A CRIMINAL and you deserve NO MERCY.

Sounds like a terrorist threat to me.
Once more it is incumbent on the US and her allies and the UN to do something about the Somali problem instead of pretending that these are just simple acts of piracy. Simply killing terrorists operating from the shores and ports will not solve the problem.
