Yeah, those pirates off Somalia are totally out of control.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
don't exterminate pirates

seizing ships for ransom
everybody gets rich

Jefferson-Madison and Kipling had 'absurd thoughts' too :-)

Jefferson sent the new US Navy and Marines to quell the Barbary pirates-Madison sent them again-1815-
Madison:
"It is a settled policy of America,that as peace is better than war,war is better than tribute. The United States, while they wish for war with no nation,will buy peace with none."

Kipling:
"We never pay any on Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost.
For the end of the game is
oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it
is lost."
