My earlier comments about Obama's handling of the situation now suggest a tasty serving of crow. Gulp. But I would like to remind folks of my closing line in the pirate post:
But I guess they've got to try it and see for themselves. Who knows, maybe Obama can pull it off.Good on the Commander-In-Chief. And good on the American military. The piracy problem hasn't suddenly been solved though, and they still hold hundreds of hostages, so we'll have to see how this affects the problem at large. But as to US flagged ships, the pirates will definitely be thinking twice before taking aim again, which is what most of us wild-eyed wing nuts wanted all along.
