    I am directing my comments towards the notion that killings would be justified if people were close to Somalia. Not necessarily towards Laila specifically.

    I think the notion itself is a false premise, I don't believe anyone has proposed that.

    Anyhow - further reports from the area now show conflicting stories about who fired first.

    But the BBC's Will Ross in Nairobi says the pirates' telling of the encounter differs from the US Navy's. The pirates report the US warship attacked first, killing two pirates, and the hostages were killed in retaliation.

    The incident will provoke further debate on whether the use of force is wise when dealing with Somali pirates who have already taken hostages, our correspondent says.

    According to the US military, Navy warships began tracking the hijacked vessel on Friday and were following it toward the Somali coast.

    Navy officials told reporters on Tuesday that two pirates had boarded a naval vessel for negotiations when the pirate crew aboard the Quest fired a rocket-propelled grenade at their ship.

    The US Navy sailors then heard gunfire aboard the Quest and dispatched a boarding party, which discovered the four Americans' bodies.

    The US Navy captured 13 pirates, killed two - one with shots and another with a knife - and found the remains of two other pirates already dead about the vessel, the US military said. BBC News

    You "may not agree"??

    How would you interpret, "oh well. They were Christian missionaries so they had it coming"?

    So you may agree with that.

    Let's be sure to give the Somalian pirates any benefit of the doubt.

    What were they doing off the coast of East Africa?

    I know about the arguments about the particulars and the arguments about the particulars about the arguments, but I would only say one thing.

    I know Christian missionaries, some of them have been very good dear friends with little more thoughts than Christ and their families. It would be hard for me to even stand hearing such utterances knowing it was them caught in crossfire.

    No, no it's not, the Israeli method like the American one is to target militants. I would simply ask you to take your anti-Israeli propaganda elsewhere as clearly this thread is no place for it.
