"We shall offer them liberal and enlightened terms..."

"...dictated at the mouths of our cannons."

Michael B. Oren has some
thoughts on Somali pirates, in the Wall Street Journal.

Less PC was Ceasar's response to piracy:
Caesar took his leave..., and went off to Pergamus, where he ordered the pirates to be brought forth and crucified.
I guess we aren't supposed to do that nowadays.

Maybe that's why we have pirates.
