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.
