Let pirates operate...


absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
let pirates operate

you will get cut of ransom
and maybe some weapons too

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-
"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."

"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."


How great minds think----
I Like Yours...USPACE.....
