When the only good pirate is a dead one


A (mainly) blogosphere wrap-up of the pirate thingy.

Tim Blair says hit them harrrd.

Paco has a few modest proposals

Michelle Malkin pays tribute to the Navy snipers.

Jules Crittenden suggests delivering the dead pirates’ bodies back to their clansmen via airmail.

Powerline has a piece on it, too.

Jules and Powerline both like the Boston Herald’s take on this; an Easter miracle.

Andrew Bolt seems mildly pleased that Obama can kill.

The Corner similarly praises Obama.

Theospark keeps it short and sweet with a quick link to a Sky News article.

Mark Steyn on our reprimitivized future.

Brietbart has a couple of video reports on this (H/T Sister Toldjah).

American Thinker offers congratulations.

The Jawa Report has a bit on it with a link to Fox News’ take.

LGF didn’t miss it; link to Brietbart article.

Unlikely that Ace of Spades would have ignored this one.

Jules’ take before any pirates got themselves dead.

Anyway, that should do it for now. After all, there’s that Tea Party coming up on Wednesday (H/T Insty).

PS And Atlas Shrugs urges that Obambi doesn’t cut the military.

UPDATE

Thanks Breitbart. CNN delves. Favourite quote? “Each pirate was shot in the head.”

UPDATE II

Philips: “Thanks, guys. Thank you very much. You’re real.”

UPDATE III

Will Obama grow some balls and attack?

    A bit O/T: How the hell can I permanently disable this snap preview rubbish? I turn it off every time I visit here, and then next time I come by its back again.

    Its really giving me the s**ts…

    I didn’t know you could turn it off, Wiz. It drives me nuts, too.

    But apart from that: Blackfive is also onto the rescue, including the intriguing thought that Barry didn’t have a whole lot to do with the rescue. He just stfu and stayed out the way.

    Three Somali pirates shot dead by US Navy Seal snipers on Easter Sunday. Heh, and pass the ham.

    Here’s another good link – a piece by The Nuge.

    Uncle Ted sez, “Let’s Play, Pirates” and towards the end he writes,

    “Just as God gave us the individual right to keep and her arms to protect ourselves, our family and our homes, that self evident truth logic clearly applies to my ship and crew as well. We have a flag flying under our American flag with a coiled yellow snake that reads — “Don’t tread and me.” It is not just a cool phrase: we actually mean it.

    “I, for the life of me, cannot fathom the soulless mindset of choosing unarmed helplessness. It goes against the very pulse of mankind. This is my life, this is my ship, these men and this cargo are in my care. Helplessness invites and promotes evil to do as evil does.

    “On my ship of life, just the opposite message resonates. Keep your little terrorist dinghy at home boys, or I will turn you into shark food. Bon voyage.”


Well, SAY something...
