Victory at Sea!

Victory at Sea!

By John W. Lillpop

God bless the United States Navy, especially those courageous and super talented warriors known as Seals!

As reported, in part, at Breitbart.com, Captain Richard Phillips has been rescued:

"An American ship captain was freed unharmed Sunday in a swift firefight that killed three of the four Somali pirates who had been holding him for days in a lifeboat off the coast of Africa, the ship's owner said and a US official said.

"A senior US intelligence official said a pirate who had been involved in negotiations to free Capt. Richard Phillips but who was not on the lifeboat was in custody."

"Phillips, 53, of Underhill, Vermont was safely transported to a Navy warship nearby."

This crisis may be be worth the aggravation and nail-biting tension if it teaches the Obama crowd two much-needed lessons about evil:

1. Men who would do great harm to America and Americans are a reality.

2. Talking to such sub-human monsters is a major waste of time--swift, well-executed force is justified and necessary when American lives and property are imperiled.

Let us hope and pray that President Obama has learned from this crisis and resists the temptation to do something really foolish--like apologizing for the deaths of the pirates!
