    @ SME: Do you really think the US would not devolve into anarchy if we did not have a strong central government to ensure clean water, safe food, fair pay, decent working conditions, and keeping paramilitary groups in check?

    If the US had similar conditions to what Somalia has, we would be just as unsettled.

    re: Ernest T. Bass - despite what multiculturalists claim all cultures are not equal.

    Things that will work well in America, or even the western world, do not necessarily work well in other cultures.

    @Ernest,

    Every time I read about Somalia pirates I think they're very much living examples of Liberal utopia.

    Don't have something you want?

    Take it from those who do.

    @ETBASS I believe that 'conservatives' generally support the constitution, and in the preamble I believe it says "..ensure domestic tranquility.." Somalia has had no tranquility for a long time. Conservatives are not anarchists.

    Maybe the NRA could ensure all people in Somalia are armed, you know, since it stops all crime.
    Actually it would seem that Somalia is a conservative dreamland, no government intervention in anything.

    Words cannot convey the mixture of sadness, helplessness and disgust that this story, with all the implications it infers, causes me.

    Very, very disappointing.
