Analysis: Obama scores win on pirate crisis
His administration passes its first critical national security test
I feel the urge to comment on the idea that authorizing the use of force against hijackers if they pose an imminent threat to a US ship captain is somehow a “big win” for policy makers, but I’ll pipe down and just bask in the glow of the victory of the US Navy.
Die, pirates. Die.
Note: The “Die, pirates. Die.” is not rah-rah cheerleading or a fist-pumping victory cry. I really, honestly, mean for pirates to die. If they won’t do it on their own, someone could be sent to help them.
