Saw This Coming...

This morning's report from East Pirate-i-stan:

The freighter that was the target of the pirates headed away from the lifeboat Thursday, Maersk shipping line said, and a teams [sic] of armed Navy SEALs is on board, according to a U.S. official who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the situation

There are probably more SEALS in that area now than there are in Hawaii...

No comment by the White House because they, "can't do anything about it".

"Guys, we're talking about housing right now."

Freakin' President of the United States. This is the endd of, "We don't negotiate with terrorists." (I'm expecting gratuitous, "But Bush...." comment)

I wonder if any of the Moron-in-Chiefs friends in the media will ask why the rules of engagement didn't allow any shots to be fired from the Bainbridge when the Captain of the Maersk Alabama attempted to free himself last night? What point are all the SEALs in the area if they aren't allowed to do anything?

I thought the same. He's (reasonably) safe. Open fire.
