Some members of the world community are saying the U.S. has ignited an unnecessary firestorm by killing the pirates to protect the life of Capt. Phillips, when we could have solved the problem quietly by paying the ransom.
That's what made the problem in the first place. Ransom is equal to extortion; if you give into it, there is no end to it; it will build and build and build...
Countries who feel our actions on Easter Sunday will wake the sleeping tiger should instead be pointing fingers at themselves. They fed the sleeping tiger very well and allowed it to mature and expand and grow very strong and dangerous indeed.
Our America is the only country in the world to face that tiger and announce: "ENOUGH!"
