Predictably, the news media are wetting their pants over our being mean to the Somali pirates. "Now they are mad at us and they will hurt their hostages." That's because they think we ought to negotiate with pirates, terrorists and thugs in general. In the movie The Fifth Element Bruce Willis gives a demonstration on negotiating with thugs. You can watch this instructive clip here.

I LOVE that movie, and I knew exactly what scene you're talking about without even watching the clip. Thanks for the laugh.

Yeah! Too bad Bruce isn't Sec of State, Homeland Security AND Defense!

I was going to say what blunoz said. I also like how Bruce dealt with his next-door neighbor.
