I know, the wail against ignorance continues to chase the wind...

Speaking of this, whatever happened to that Danish family held captive? They were taken captive shortly before or after that California couple was murdered, and I don't recall hearing what happened to them.

There is nothing like a Dane,
Nothing in the world,
There is nothing you can name
That is anything like a Dane!

[blockquote]http://channel6newsonline.com/2011/03/denmarks-ruling-party-proposes-sinking-ships-to-disrupt-piracy/

 -- Denmark's ruling party, the Liberal Party, on Tuesday proposed that the Danish navy should be able to sink mother ships to disrupt piracy, the Politiken newspaper reported.
...
 The Liberal Party also proposed that Danish naval mandate should allow to board and confiscate pirates' mother ships.

Danish government ministers will meet to discuss and develop an anti-piracy strategy following the hijack of seven Danish citizens on February 24. Two other Danish hostages have also been held by pirates since mid-January.
...
"The problem is that overall, what is going on in anti-piracy is relatively uncoordinated, and that is a major problem."
...
On February 24, Somali pirates captured a Danish family and two other adults who were on their 43-foot yacht in the Indian Ocean. They were on their way from the Maldives to the Red Sea.
...
 Denmark said it was doing everything in its power to assist the family, who is from Kalundborg.

On Monday morning, Somali authorities surrounded a village in which seven Danish hostages are thought to be being held by pirates and offered the abductors safe conduct if they release the four adults and three children. The pirates have not issued a response yet.[/blockquote]

Believe it or not this mindset dates back to the McNamara period when officers were "encouraged" to seek Masters Degrees in Business Administration and apply those lessons to the military . You can see the results . Our troops are now "assets" .

McNamara, mister efficiency, wanted to quantify soldier effectiveness by establishing a ratio of number of bullets fired to the number of kills.  "Body count" also became a buzz word under his ministering.

I think Ford Motor Company fired him after introduction of the Edsel.

The Whiz Kid technocrat faculty lounge administration is echoed mightily in the current crop of morons at the White House. I believe it was Buckley who quipped "I'd rather be governed by the first 400 people in the Boston phone book than by the faculty of Harvard University".
