Daily Kos: Dead Pirates Mean Phillips a Grandstander

With about 6.7 billion people in the world, odds are that at least one is a nutcase with a widely read blog.

Prominent leftist blog Daily Kos includes a post from a regular contributor who says that Captain Phillips was a foolhardy grandstander to resist the Somali pirates. All that was at stake, says the blogger identified as KLS, was ransom money from the ship's owners. Hence, Phillips should not have put his crew, himself and the intrepid Navy Seals at risk by resisting. Unrighteous mammon is not worth risk to human lives.

Immanuel Kant, please call KLS to discuss ethics.

We look forward to a world run by pirates when KLS and his ilk have their way.
