I had the weirdest Amerrrican reaction to the whole "pirates have my captain hostage" thing last week. It was all "We're America, and we have our big ships, and don't we have a few snipers who can just take these bastards out?" I just wanted them laid waste. It was such an odd feeling. Every time I heard a story about it on the news, I would get mad all over again.
Never mind that Somalia is a mess, and we have been no help, and their government is struggling... PIRATES?! Screw you.
