Oh poor President BO - he has to switch his focus from being a citizen of the world and the transition of the USA to a Socialist mecca to the most recent "Man Caused Disaster". Those "misunderstood" Somali "freedom fighters" AKA terrorist pirates have seized another vessel and the captain of the US ship Alabama Mersk is still a hostage.
"What to do? What to do?" is the mantra at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Can't attack cause that would signal to the world that the US still has some cajones. Can't negotiate because we've brought all of this on ourselves what with our wars and evil doings for the past 200+ years. How can we launch another "Overseas Contingency Operation" when we are not at war with Muslims despite the deaths of thousands of Americans and innocents at the hands of the fanatical Muslim extremists? The hand wringing is generating so much carbon that the administration may have to buy some offsets from the Goracle's company.
The WaPo lists some of the options available other than fighting back and flexing our muscles...
Many other national security officials say an ill-considered strike would have negative diplomatic and political consequences far beyond the Horn of Africa. Other options under consideration are increased financial pressure and diplomatic activity, including stepped-up efforts to resolve the larger political turmoil in Somalia.
Yeah - that's the ticket - increase financial pressure and diplomatic activity cause that really has had an impact elsewhere. Someone buy these wimps a clue and a spine. The only thing these TERRORISTS understand is force and until we demonstrate that we have the guts to fight back, we might as well get ready for more and more "man caused disasters" out on the high seas and God forbid, on our soil.
President BO - resign your position as a citizen of the world and act like the President of the United States who took an oath to protect our country from all enemies - foreign or domestic.
