Your prayers are too late and sad to say, as far as I know no Navy SEALS were involved in a rescue attempt this time. Thirty ships and more than 660 hostages is the score to date, not to mention the $9.5 million or so in ransom.
The four American sailors hijacked off the Somali coast have been killed by the pirates.
This is the first time U.S. citizens have been killed in the several years this piracy has been taking place.
According to Jihad Watch the slain Americans have been identified as Jean and Scott Adam, of Marina del Rey California, and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle, of Seattle, Washington.
The question is, will this invite a military response? Doubtful the wimp Obama will react just because American lives have now been taken. These pirates are seen as a band of rogue Muslims who have hijacked the ‘religion of peace’ and strike out only as a desperate reaction to their poverty and lack of education, when in fact they are Islamic jihadists, dedicated to the same goals as Osama bin Laden and other jihadists around the world.
But American liberals (and the media) continue to promote the idea that Western and Islamic values are wholly compatible. Case in point, look how long it took CBS to report the brutal sexual attack on their own television reporter Lara Logan. This delusion not only leads to serious foreign policy mistakes—it has also cost lives right here in the U.S. (the Ft. Hood massacre comes to mind) and continues to embolden our enemy at home and abroad.
If you don’t believe it, start paying attention to the democracy evolving in Egypt and Libya. The world is a tinderbox and it’s anyone guess where it will lead next.
