Somali pirates want U.S. Navy to back off

Pirates who hijacked a Japanese tanker off Somalia earlier this week are demanding a U.S. warship shadowing the vessel back off, the wife of the tanker’s foreman said Friday. (Source)

These Somalis obviously aren’t paying attention. You don’t get Americans to back off by threatening them. You get them to back off by screaming “quagmire!”, “No Blood for Oil!”, having many of your troops die each each one US soldier and losing the War. At least that’s how Al-Qaeda’s doing it and they’ve have much success in convincing the Democrats to back off.
