Should Japan give 200 million dollars to a terrorist organization to retrieve a private military contractor and a journalist?

Is that even a serious question?

If they can't do it in the remaining time there is, then I suppose not. ~

They are two fucking random people. You really think japan really give a shit? They are not going to pay the ransom. Why the fuck is ISIL still alive?Nuke them or something. Let the people suffering end and just kill everyone bad in that fucking country already. Do we as human really give a single fuck? I mean we would maybe remember this at least for 4 hours then forget about those two people. We are only capable of showing empathy for a few hours until we stop caring.

Have the war against ISIL already start or are we playing the chicken game?


This guy would make a great leader.


I'm just telling the truth. Japan is lying, saying that they will do everything to save them. What their name again? We don't even know the name of the fucking hostages.

Well, I wonder what the results were since it's been 72 hours. Or it has since word started to surface to the public face.

The problem here is giving in means encouraging this kind of thing again and funding further actions. While two lives are immediately at stake far more could be lost is the demands are met and the hostages lives aren't even guaranteed. I want to save them if possible but it needs to be in some way other than just giving them the cash.

Sadly even if the ransom was paid it does not guarantee that their lives will be spared. Paying ransom also gives rise to more victims held for ransoms. It's a downward spiral.

Nope.

I'm sorry to say, but the lives of two individuals are not worth funding a multinational terrorist organization who wants to kill everyone that dont agree with them, and wish to force women into sexual slavery.

The 200 million would fund their war by giving them the funds to by more black market weapons and give them the ability to dope up their soldiers on even more drugs.

I feel bad for the hostages, but you CANNOT negotiate with terrorists. You CANNOT enable them by supplying them with more funds. If you stop paying the ransoms, they wont bother kidnapping people.
