Congress has been split between both parties for over a decade. Both parties' support is required to pass anything in Congress under these conditions. Both parties bear responsibility for the current fiscal woes. Trying to blame one group of criminals over the other is simply partisan bickering, and intellectually dishonest.

Yes, the military may try someone under their own rules, even after a state court trial. The reason is that military and civilian courts are fundamentally separate systems with their own sets of requirements. As a result, the constitutional right to no double jeopardy or no double punishment is preserved by having separate trials in the two different systems. Both the federal government (which usually represents military interests) and a state may prosecute someone for the same conduct.

These symbols are not a reference to Nazi symbols. They are a symbol indicative of scout snipers. This very same design hangs on the wall at the schoolhouse for scout snipers. I personally know scout snipers of jewish heritage who have this emblem tattooed on their arm. My only complaint is that they were stupid enough to allow the photograph to leak out. Everyone needs to get over this hyper-sensitivity that seems to be spreading everywhere!

The pirates are untrained, illiterate, and incompetent. Professional security contractors will be extremely effective.
