Somali Pirates Seize US Cargo Ship, and the US Crew Rescuses Itself

Pirates hold captain hostage.
Breitbart Article
The crew of the ship took matters into their own hands. How very American. Good thing they didn’t wait for a response from the Federal Gov’t or the Pres.
So is there anyone who thinks this would have happened if Obama showed some resolve? If they thought for a second that America would defend itself with deadly force? I don’t think so. (article) The closest US warship was 345miles away

    Somali pirates on Wednesday hijacked a U.S.-flagged cargo ship with 21 crew members aboard, a diplomat and a U.S. Navy spokesman said. The Kenya-based diplomat identified the vessel as the 17,000-ton Maersk Alabama and said all the crew members are American.

This and two US journalists are still being held by North Korea – we still don’t hear anything about that. I wonder why?
