Diplomacy, gun boat style, Bravo Zulu, US Naval task force, from the Seals at the tip of the spear to the Fireman deuce in the engine room, it takes a well trained task force to accomplish a mission of this magnitude, well done.

Here in Hampton, Virginia, they used to know how to deal with pirates. Blackbeard's severed head was mounted on a piling at the entrance to the Hampton river. Perhaps something like that can be done with the three dead pirates today. (Or the fourth one for all I care.)

He is a hero and hopefully will be treated as such when he returns home! This man is an example of what makes America strong!
