Comment left on New York Times website by reader G. Ligler of San Diego regarding the rescue of Capt. Richard Phillips:
"Another reason to be proud of the US Navy.
And, it gives new meaning to the term 'Easter SEALS.'
I'm also proud of our government for not negotiating with the pirates, otherwise known as terrorists on the seas. Paying ransom only perpetuates the problem, as so many other countries have found out, the hard way.
Maybe the pirates will think twice about the next passing ship, especially if it is flying the US Flag.
Good job Navy, keep making us proud!"
