WASHINGTON (AP) True to form, President Barack Obama is striking a cautious, low-profile public stance as the piracy crisis plays out. As the situation changes by the hour, Obama advisers say the new commander in chief is being kept abreast of the developments, including Capt. Richard Phillips' foiled escape attempt Friday. But the president has yet to say a word in public about the standoff, now three days old. The approach is quintessential Obama, who as a candidate and now as president has tended to let tenuous dramas unfold without remark unless he absolutely must, lest his words or actions adversely influence a precarious situation. "I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak," Obama said pointedly last month when a reporter questioned why it took him several days to express outrage over the big bonuses American International Group doled out while receiving federal bailout money.

How about making these douchbags into shark bait? That's the only way this will stop.
This situation must be dealt with before any of the other ships held by the "pirates" show up. If they are able to get to the scene and this is still playing out you idiots will really have your s**t soup.
What about the UN? Wasn’t this a UN Mission...we are such wusses.
Obama: “I won!” (gee, that was quintessential Obama) or how about “Don’t listen to Rush”.
AP. Official fellatio news organization for Dear Leader.
Failure is being redefined before our eyes.
Just imagine where we would be if we had the media/Hollywood war room Hussein has.
Piracy is not a new phenomenon. (DUH!)
We learned how to eradicate piracy centuries ago. YOU WIPE OUT THE PIRATE PORTS.
From Madagascar to Port Royal, pirates cannot exist unless they have sanctuaries where they are tolerated, where they can buy and sell their cargos, and refit ships for pirate mission.
Wipe out the pirate ports, you wipe out the pirates.
Chasing pirates on the high seas (while permitting their safe havens to exist) is a fool’s errand.
Reagan would have craterized their ports last week. Libya comes to mind.
When the phone call comes at 3AM, Obama will have it on Mute.
Yeah..he hasn’t shown up to vote. We will be lucky if he votes “present”.
The Disengaged President
“I like to know what I’m talking about before I speak”
Translation from Obamese: “I like to see what is on the Teleprompter (written by Rahm) before I speak.”
Oh, so you're going to be our first mute President, then?
Ha, two seconds apart!!
“Can I just eat my waffle?”
Translation: He is hiding under the desk and begging for money to buy off the pirates.
The only problem is that the hostages are white and the terrorists are black. It will be hard for Obama to met out justice because of that.
I am sure the white hating racist Congressional Black Caucus has weighed in to protect the terrorists because they are black, just as they caused Clinton to sacrifice American Soldiers to that same political correctness in the Blackhawk Down situation.

Could this be extended to apply to the elimination of Jihad also?
