Interesting, one of the people commenting got the whole Thomas Jefferson thing wrong (he forgot to mention William Eaton and what not, but meh, this has nothing to do with that. I'm actually surprised as well, I'm more curious about what the restrictions on U.S law are in the ocean. They probably should have been tried in international courts (do they even have such a thing?). Either way they deserve to pay for their crimes, but I'm not partial to the death sentence at all. It seems like everything went pretty smoothly... Now if only congress was that effective :? .

There is the World Court, but it is only effective if all parties involved agree to its verdict.

Life in an American prison is probably better then living in Somalia.
