Question of the Day: Somalia


So, for all of you who are observers of the geopolitical scene, especially here in the United States . . . a question:

How long will it take for someone in the media, blogdom or politics to charge those who want to crack down on Somalian piracy with racism?

My own prediction is to give it about a week, but maybe that's too optimistic.

Yes, the old "Victims of society" ploy...

Hitler and Musolini died, but the they started didn't. It has taken quite some time but the Fasci are now in control of nearly everything the Axis powers first targeted.

Sad that we tolerate open warfare on the highseas. The "Pirates" are a highly organized military operation. When are we gonna get the fact that they are at war with the west and retaliate?

If you saw Dennis Miller on The Factor tonight, Sola, you saw O'Reilly bringing up that very same idea.......that they'd be branded as racists because of Miller making the crack "Somali wanna cracker?"

It's past time we put these pirates out of business for good.
