So the pirates are promising revenge against the US for rescuing one of our own? They are on very thin ice. I like the fact that Obama is letting the military do what the military does best - killing, and I also like the thought of hitting the pirate bases and home turf. After all, pirates can't be pirates if they are homeless and boatless, can they? Pirates can't do much if their bodies are blown to bits either.
I say smack the hell out of them for a couple of weeks, and see if that prods them to seek a new profession. If it doesn't, then smack 'em again, and keep smacking 'em until they either get the message (Don't screw with the US) or they are dead.
