So what did we learn from the Somali pirates?

Pirates are not nearly as cool when they are black, poor, and desperate.

Gonna ruin that disney ride for me. :(

A definite abuse of US power. Victimizing those poor, pirates like that - they didn't stand a chance.

Had to have caught the pirates offguard. Who would expect seals?

They were taken out by snipers. Apparently the seal snipers on the USS Bainbridge saw one of the Pirates with a gun pointed at the Captain's back, and took them out. I don't know how far the Bainbridge was from the Hijacked vessel, but thats fine shooting right there.

if Mccain were President that man would be dead, the ship would be under water, and the pirates would be back home safely before he was finished changing his depends.

good job handling the crisis, President Obama, and thank you for keeping us safe.

Should have taken them out in the first day.

Now let that ship stay our there awhile and flatten any others we happen to see.

When the Capt. escaped the first time was the time we sent a guided missle into the life boat! (Maybe he didn't get far enough away?)

Obama needs to man up and park a frigate there for a few months or more. Show the colors and assure safe passage for ships.
