Apr. 9th, 2009 09:09 pm Holy Thursday Pirates of the Perhaps
During Lent, I have been working on a piece of fiction that involves ocean lore. Yet truth is stranger than my fiction.
Never could I believe that a small crew of Somali Pirates could trigger the Obama Administration"s first international crisis. Would this happened under the McCain Administration? Perhaps, but not likely.
Last night, many experts predicted that the Navy would wrap up this crisis within a few hours. Yet the stand off continues and General David Petraeus is sending additional ships to the region.
Now the current Secretary of State thinks a resolution needs to be drafted to express outrage. Perhaps the current administration needs to stop dithering and let our military perform their duty.
