SPIEGEL ONLINE headline: "Kidnapped Captain: Somali Pirates Make Fools of US Navy"
Big surprise: According to SPIEGEL ONLINE, members of the US military are once again humiliated fools - just as they have been in every conflict since the American Revolution.
Whoops! Looks like the Navy Seals just took out the pirates and rescued the captain. So what will SPIEGEL's reaction be now? Let us make a prediction... here are a few suggested headlines we have to offer the SPIEGEL ONLINE editors...
- Trigger Happy American Rambos Kill Impoverished Africans
- Bloodthirsty US Marines Kill Somalis Without UN Permission
- Americans Kill 3 Civilians - Break Off Peace Negotiations
- Somali Freedom Fighters Murdered in Standoff
Here's the bottom line: Whether the US military acts or not - they will always be demoralized, trigger-happy fools in the eyes of biased German media like SPIEGEL ONLINE. The true fools are the millions of readers who believe the news they get from German media on the United States to be reliable.
UPDATE: The actual reaction from SPIEGEL ONLINE: The order for the spectacular commando operation came directly from the heroic Barack Obama - the nicest President since JFK because he loves windmills and doesn't get angry when Germany refuses to send more troops into a combat zone. Still no apologies for the trigger-happy, blood-thirsty fools in the US military...
