Why we have always been winning against the Pirates.

In the waning days of the Bush administration, the National Security Council issued a detailed yet little-noticed plan for combating piracy off the coast of Somalia.

The 14-page blueprint, issued in December, committed the U.S. government and its military to securing the sea lanes of the Gulf of Aden -- through which, the plan noted, nearly 12% of the world's oil is transported -- and laid out more than a dozen specific policy initiatives that the White House would take to make sure Somali pirates did not choke off the world's commercial shipping.

Where things are always Sun Shine, because the War President is STILL protecting us from the Iranqian Flying Saucer Pirate Canadianist Darkies....

And all of the children are above average....

Except for the liberals and their fellow travellors...
