It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Breaking: Captain Phillips Rescued

NBC news is reporting that Captain Phillips has been rescued by Navy Seals, and is safe aboard the USS Bainbridge. Word is he is unharmed. Hopefully these douchebag idiots are getting the message: Don't fuck with us, even if our Resident is a lying ass.

For the record: Seals idea. :)

CNN is also reporting the story.

The OMV family sends well wishes to Capt. Phillips and his family, along with the members of the US military who helped effect this rescue.

Those are my buds...WTG! Navy. I am loving me some Seals today...I had friends that were Seals...This Navy vet is so proud today. I am surprised that the "Coward in Chief" finally told them to go wouldn't have mattered anyways...if there was a right time the Navy would have done with or without the "Coward in Chief"....and of course the coward's apologists say he approved it all along....the coward blathered on like he really cared for Captain Phillips....nothing if farther from the truth!

Wednesday 8 April 12am-2am (all times BST) The Maersk Alabama
first comes into contact with a pirate vessel 350 miles off the
coast of Somalia, 380 miles east of its capital, Mogadishu, and
300 miles from the nearest navy patrol ship. The Alabama eluded
the pirates for more than three hours. The crew use fire hoses to
prevent the pirates boarding the ship.

5.30am Four pirates armed with AK-47 rifles board the food aid
cargo ship. At the time there are 21 crew on board.A military official tells the New York Times that the crew managed to disable the ship before the pirates boarded. Shortly afterwards, the pirates' own boat is scuttled.

About 6am The unarmed crew hide from the pirates then attack them
and capture one of the pirates. The three remaining pirates hold
the captain, Richard Phillips, hostage.

About 7am Phillips talks the pirates into the Alabama's 28ft
lifeboat and offers himself as hostage to secure the rest of the
crew's safety.

3.30pm The ship's first officer Shane Murphy, calls his wife to
say the crew is safe.

6:00pm Ken Quinn, the ship's second officer, tells CNN the
crew locked themselves into a compartment containing the ship's
steering gear for 12 hours. They then freed the captured pirate
in the hope of securing the release of Phillips. But Phillips
remains on the ship's lifeboat with four pirates. "There's four
Somali pirates, and they've got our captain," Quinn says.

Thursday 9 April 1am US navy vessel USS Bainbridge reaches the
Maersk Alabama. Other warships are on the way.

my question is ...
WHY did it take until Friday for the "resident" to authorize the use of deadly force to rescue the Captain ?
