captain_richard_phillipsIts days like today that I am so proud to be an American.  The US Navy provided an Easter miracle of sorts today when it freed Captain Richard Phillips from a handful of Somali pirates with three successful sniper head shots.

Congratulations to the Captain’s family and crew members.  Not only did this crew successful foil the initial pirate attack, the cool head of the captain got everyone out of the situation alive who wanted to get out alive.

It is too bad that three people had to die to resolve this situation, but this is a perfect illustration that real evil does exist in our world, and sometimes that evil can’t be negotiated into changing its ways.

    I don’t feel bad about them dying. They brought it on themselves. I only wish navy would interfere sooner.

    Maybe it’s a little horrible, but they were pirates – not pirates of the Caribbean, but dangerous terrorists.
