THAT is what Navy SEALs are for
Tom Clancy would be proud. Three pirates with three shots, courtesy of three US Navy SEAL snipers… which, from what I’ve always been told, is why we even have Navy SEALs, to use a minimum of highly trained, absurdly lethal personnel to smoothly liquidate Iron Age savages who dare to attack us with their pathetically feeble weapons. Yes, the pirates who captured Captain Richard Phillips had some very real, very deadly machine guns… which puts them on technological par with Al Capone. I expect we can do better… and oh, wait, we did.
So far the GOP has failed to denounce Obama’s authorization of the superheroic rescue, on grounds that his attack of those poor, noble, self-starting entrepreneurs from the peace-loving, perfect tax-free Libertarian paradise of Somalia constitutes clear evidence that Obama is a Trotskyite.
