...is getting ridiculous. From CNN tonight:
The Liberty Sun, a U.S.-flagged cargo ship bound for Mombasa, Kenya, was attacked Tuesday by Somali pirates, according to a NATO source with direct knowledge of the matter.
The pirates never made it onto the ship. The vessel is now being escorted by a coalition ship, still bound for Mombasa.The source could provide no details on where the vessel was attacked but said it is suspected the pirates were based on a mother ship somewhere in the area.
On top of that, yesterday pirates captured a Lebanese ship, a Greek ship and two Egyptian ones.
Most of these ships are carrying humanitarian aid.
Find the mothership, find the pirate harbors and sink the little twits. Seriously, what state is going to retaliate? Oh wait - is that a right wing extremist point of view?
Here's an idea: lets move the pirates through renditions to Gitmo, or maybe Afghanistan, then relocate them with a nice little settlement check into a suburban neighborhood. They just need a little love and understanding.
