#1 The question that must be asked is "Which strategy results in less loss of life in the long run?"

#2 "I don't care about the hostages you have. You have no bargaining chip. I am going to kill you."


Want to do it again?

#3 Also it sends the message..

"Don't get taken hostage" which is the most successful anti-hostage strategy.

#5 …it is a perfectly accurate description of the attitude most of the world has towards hostages and hostage-takers.

They’re not hostage-takers. This illustrates the folly of calling them bombers sometimes and gunmen at other times. Hell, a couple of months ago you might just as well called ‘em limb loppers. Their motives are clear. They’re Islamic Terrorists! Every action against them should start and end with that base line.

#6 that's it. They are killers. They start with the Americans and proceed thru the rest of the Christians. Those people were dead the minute they were taken.
