Maritime Justice for Pirates

"Sharpshooters firing from the fantail of a U.S. Navy destroyer killed three pirates holding an American cargo-ship captain in a lifeboat, ending a five-day ordeal that unfolded amid a surge in piracy off Somalia’s coast."

After two years of talking about the intrinsic good of multilateralism and his recent European apology tour, my hopes for a show of strength from Pres. Obama were low, but I'm pleased to see that when push came to shove he didn't call the lawyers or the Security Council but the SEALs. God bless him, those SEALs, and Capt. Phillips.
