To the shores of Tripoli

Why are we letting pirates capture US ships and doing nothing about it? Thomas Jefferson didn’t tolerate that and neither should Obama. (Bush didn’t do anything either, but he’s not really in a position to deal with this now). We are pouring money into the trash heap that is Afghanistan. Meanwhile, pirates thumb their noses at us.

Fact: Pirates took 1 million slaves from Europe to Arab lands.

Fact: After we fought 2 wars, we stopped having to pay tribute to Arab pirates. Will we be starting again soon?

Fact: Piracy ended when the French conquered Algiers in 1830.
