...die by the sword.
If you ask me, I would have rather had all of the pirates killed in the rescue of the American captain. And then, I would have blown the little pirate support boats out of the water.
And then, when the pirate in chief whined about it, I would authorize a little live fire training exercise for my Navy brothers and sisters.
If you use force and violence to achieve your goals in life, don't be surprised when it comes back on you ten-fold, Mr. Pirate.
P.S. NINJA'S RULE!
