    Captain Richard Phillips Rescued From Pirates By Navy Seals



    washingtonpost.com

    Obama Twice Approved Plan to Rescue U.S. Sea Captain - Presidential Politics | Political News - FOXNews.com



    Captain Phillips is safe, unharmed and homeward bound thanks to a coordinated rescue effort on the part of the U.S. Navy, civil and military intelligence services ..and the President of the United States. The rescue occured today, Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009. I'm hopping about happier than an Easter Bunny on chocolate egg steroids!

    Three pirates were killed and a fourth captured. They were holding the captain hostage in a small lifeboat while one was pointing an AK-47 at his back. The scene commander quickly ordered our military snipers to open fire. President Obama had issued the directive to use lethal force if Phillips' life was determined on site to be in "imminant danger" ..and it most assurably was.



    Immediately following the rescue, the crew of the Maersk Alabama cargo ship broke out in unbridled cheers and loud applause. The love for their selfless, coragious and brave hero ..the rescuers, and for our country rang out. We American's have much to take pride in this wonderful day. This sweet land of liberty is indeed special.

    Hopefully, we will as a nation always have sense of strong national pride as one collective family ..regardless of the struggles that confront us.

    I wonder how they were able to get sights on all three pirates in a completely enclosed lifeboat.

    He even did news interviews today. Seems to be an extremely sharp guy.

    The snipers go thru extensive training for situations such as these. Still, one has to accept the fact that a considerable amount of luck plays out in such a precarious predicament. Only one pirate is said to have been pointing a weapon at the captain. So, I have no explanation as to why the other two were killed. Don't miss them though. We should be hearing more details in the future.

    Re: Captain Richard Phillips Rescued From Pirates By Navy Seals

    Breaking news reports that the pirates are threatening in retaliation that Amica will be the ones in morning now. They are also threatening the international community that it will treat each county the way they themselves are being treated.

    A decision is now being made as to how quickly the captured pirate (that was holding the captain in the lifeboat) to the U.S. for trial ..the type of trial and how it should be carried out. Under international law, a captured enemy (responsible for a life-threatening incident) in international waters becomes under the jurisdiction of the nation that an act was perpetraited against.

    According to current reports, around 300 hostages are being held in Samoli pirate villages. In the abcense of a show of force that will end this crisis situation, Samolian's plan to capture ships and demand ransom in perpetuity, one generation after another.
