If you debate honestly here, you will be OK in my book. And there are plenty of debates to be had here. To win the day means winning the debate, not starting a flame war.

    Thanks for editing, and thank you for your graciousness on this.

    Actually, I don't recall mentioning that. Place that comment with the one about me threatening to assassinate the king of Swaziland.

    Sugar coat it, but you are apologizing for their 'plight'....
    I'd like to see them take up arms against their oppressors with their hard earned cash....
    But, it won't happen....
    They'll spend it on living large...
    Like most common criminals do....

    I don't even know what you're talking about, and I suspect you don't either.

    I am not up for mass retribution against the Somalia people. I think the Somalia government my truly be unable/ unequipped to battle these pirates. (not that they would even if they were) Even our government has acknowledged the challenges of battling these guys.
    I would however be okay with heavy US Navy patrols in this area for about 6 months with mini gun vs dingy and see how long it takes the pirates to decide it's not worth the risk.
    From the ashes.

    Well, what does the statement below mean then?....
    It sure looks like you are trying to justify their actions because they are poor......
    What they are doing is armed robbery....
    Common criminals.....

    Every Western nation has a unit that is made just for those occasions.
    Perhaps it's time to use it?
