Somali Pirates

U.S. Negotiations With Somali Pirates Continue

There should be no negotiation until all hostages are freed, and then ask them whether they would prefer to be hung or walk the plank. reported A tense standoff continued in the Indian Ocean Friday between a U.S. Navy destroyer and Somali pirates holding an American container-ship captain hostage on a lifeboat, after the captain tried to escape but was quickly recaptured.... The ship's 20-member American crew subsequently overpowered one of the pirates, but the remaining attackers took Phillips aboard one of the Maersk Alabama's lifeboats. The Americans turned over their captive, but the pirates reneged on a deal to give back the captain in exchange.
You can't trust them.

It appears the liberals have found a way to end piracy. They're going to stage a series of 12 benefit concerts for the pirates, beginning July 13, 2009, and ending July 13, 2010 -- the 25th anniversary of the first LIVE AID concert to benefit Ethiopian famine relief efforts.
