"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

John F. Kerry - "You gotta be smart."

Somalian pirates, muslim extremists of the high seas, have taken $100 million oil ships, civilians, and tons of ransom payments from willing governments. They are a threat to free society because we should not fear piracy when sailing the seas of this planet. Some people have acquiesced, given in, or pandered to the terrorists, while others are taking a more hardline stance. Even China is pondering military action against these terrorists in a move not seen since the 1500's. India has come out swinging against terrorism, of all kinds, and the United States is still leading the fight. We bear the brunt of the terrorist angst, we shoulder the target for them to aim at, and we carry the sword to strike them with. We are a nation of pioneers, and reluctant warriors. Always drawn into a conflict by a severe need, whether it be for our own freedom or for the free world, we have fought for what is right.

Then there are Senators.

Foxnews is reporting that John Kerry wants to hold hearings about the issue, because "you gotta be smart."

Sen. Kerry,

Here are a few smart options to consider...because I don't think the Pirates are going to come to your hearings.
