Breaking: Another hijacking

Fox is reporting that pirates have just hijacked another ship. This one is a "U.S. owned, Italian flagged" ship sailing in the Gulf of Aden (just north of Somalia). The fact that they even dare to hijack another U.S. ship demonstrates a profound failure in U.S. policy.

Back during the Carter administration, Iran took over our embassy and held our citizens hostage for over a year while Jimmy Carter negotiated. As soon as Reagan was elected president, Iran let the hostages go. They knew Reagan wouldn't put up with it.

It is beginning to look like the Obama administration is just like the Carter administration. We're just going to "negotiate" while pirates capture our ships, while Iran develops nuclear weapons, and while North Korea develops long range missiles.
