They Will Know We Are Christians By Our Love...

Slate reports on the Russian navy's unorthodox method for dealing with Somali pirates:

...they were "set free" in a tiny inflatable raft, with no navigation equipment, 350 miles off the coast of Yemen. The raft has since disappeared. In the 21st century, this is how pirates walk the plank.

Rod Dreher, to his credit, is uncomfortable with this quasi state-sanctioned murder. Just kidding!

Good for them. Off you go, lads! Enjoy the sailing! Read on in Applebaum's column, and you see why it's a terrible mess, trying to figure out how to try those criminals. I'd say they've bloody well earned their holiday on the waves, however it turns out.

Ever get the sense that Dreher could take or leave The Gospel of Matthew?
