I agree that we would have fired on them. Let us take a moment to reflect on an old prayer, because it is as powerful now as it was then, and oh so appropriate. Merciful Father, hear our prayer, protect our brave men and women so far from home, in such grave peril. These are our best, they stand where we cannot, death stalks them, and they are precious beyond all treasure.
"Eternal Father, strong to save
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave.
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep
Oh hear us when we cry to thee
For those in peril on the sea."

(I can't talk about liberals anymore because some of the words will get me sent to rehab.)
That song/Hymn got me through boot camp...I still get goosebumps when I hear it.
