3 Less Carbon-Footprints to Worry About.

'3 Rounds, 3 Dead Bodies'

The skill set displayed by our SEALS in taking the pirates down deserves all the accolades it has inspired. And I think we all support the President’s decision to let the bullets fly if and when the on-scene commander deemed it necessary.

Well, most of us, anyway:

“In Somalia, in the pirate haven of Harardhere, where locals have benefited from millions of dollars in pirate ransom, the military operation seemed like a bewildering display of force against four errant young men. "It was wrong to kill those pirates," said Aisha Gurey, an Arabic teacher. "The international community is wrong, and the pirates are wrong. But in this case, the strong one has killed the weak one."

This being a Scott Wilson-bylined story, I’m kind of surprised he didn’t find someone complaining about ours being a disproportionate response.
