About Damned Time

Three pirates dead, one in custody, and Capt. Phillips safe. The only way it could have been more perfect is if all four pirates had been snuffed.

The most telling part for me:

"Initial reports indicate Phillips jumped overboard for a second time and the military was able to take advantage of the situation."

Without any background it seems likely that snipers were waiting for an opportunity and took it when created by the Captain himself. A little lesson in courage, smarts, self-reliance, and trust in the professionals for all of us.
