Man, when the French nut up and fight this trash and we don't...well, we've spent way too much money on way too many sophisicated arms systems and platforms. The technology is cool, but how do we apply it?
I'm afraid the reasons we haven't taken action are political correctness and the color of these peoples' skin. These are the things that are going to be our undoing. Do you think if these pirates were Scots overhauling ships in the North Sea that it would be tolerated?
If we had been politically correct in 1774 we'd be paying our bills in pounds and bowing to the queen. (Some of y'all bow to queens now, but that's another story!)
I just can't believe how we've been rendered helpless by a bunch of rabble.
End of this rant,
