Thanks to all who enquired after my health. I am doing brilliantly, the gallstones have been eradicated and I will always be glad that I did not allow the "Doctor" (and I use the term loosely) to surgically remove my gallbladder. Like my MIL says, "You need to keep your insides INSIDE."
But to the matter at hand. And I am referring, of course, to the recent rescue of the US Captain from the Somali pirates. I am uber-impressed with the Navy Snipers ability to pick off the thugs whilst standing on a Destroyer being thrashed around in high seas. Cool!
One of the surviving pirates made threats against the US saying that by using our military might, we are marked for retaliation. "In the future, America will be the one mourning and crying," he told The Associated Press. "We will retaliate (for) the killings of our men." Like he would want his country to sit back and do nothing if his countryman was being held hostage by a bunch of murdering thugs!
But here's the thing... the ship the Somali thugs attempted to hijack had been carrying food aid bound for Rwanda, Somalia and Uganda!
Talk about biting the hand that feeds!!
