I wonder how Mrs. Bill would handle this
She would make a feckless speech, calling on the "international community" (which doesn't exist) to do something.
If you're talking Mrs. Bill Clinton, then probably the same way Jimmy Carter "handled" the first Iranian hostage crisis.
"I wonder how Mrs. Bill would handle this"
She'd send troops to Darfur.
I have a pretty good feeling how Rudy would handle something like this if it happened to the US.
First he would fire the commander of the ship and second he would give them 6 hours to release the captives and then start the precision bombing of their economy. A couple of damns here and a few bunker busters there and the game would be over.
Just an FYI; there is talk about how bombing the uranium enrichment sites would cause wide spread release of radioactivity, well for all of you whimpy handwringers out there, we are working on blowing up the sites and containing the resultant contamination to those underground sites.
Ahmanutjob is crazy as a loon, but even he would not wish to face the wrath of the Hildabeast. Can you imagine having that creature screaming at you?;)
