    Mornin' Sherman. Why should the US Government pay? How about the News Outlet or whomever she works for Paying for it. Then it would not be the US government negotiating.

    I agree NP.....but now the MS media has the issue out in the open. Naturally due to the hostage being an American woman. The MS Media will push this issue and play on it. To try and get Team BO to do something.

    A third American hostage held by ISIS has been identified as a 26-year-old American woman who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian relief work in Syria. The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, who the family requested not be identified.

    In addition to the multi-million dollar ransom, the terror group has also demanded that the U.S. release Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT-trained neuroscientist who was convicted by the U.S. in 2010 of trying to kill U.S. officials two years before, according to a supporter of Siddiqui who has been in contact with the hostage’s family.....snip~

    Oh.....that's ABC 45 mins ago.
    You can expect more incidents like these since our government decided to start another war instead of doing the right thing, pulling out of the entire middle east.

    Mornin' Pos. Well Al Qaida is currently trying to negotiate the hostages they have. I also think.....they too have a woman.

    To pull completely out of the ME.....we would have to have a different mind set when it comes to resources. As well as not ever needing anything from there. Might be feasible if there was never any reason to have interests pertaining to that Region.

    "Sadly" we can't play by their rules. Because that would work.

    Thats the problem, I think the only reason why we are messing in the middle east is because of oil, even though Saudi Arabia and Qatar were giving oodles of money to ISIS and the US has got enough oil reserves to be independent if we decided to develop the infrastructure for it.

    That's not what I am hearing.....all due to fracking. Mining resources from Space. Some think the US will be independent of ME oil in less than a decade. How they looking on gold? We might be needing plenty of it for Space exploration and or establishing bases.

    Still there are Allies to consider. Israel, Egypt, and the Kurds.

    It's better if we don't pay these types of ransoms. Ever. If we did, we'd just turn the taking of American hostages into a business and end up financing Isis with it. I also don't think there's really much we can do to stop these killings either. We just have to remember that far more Americans die from car accidents then will ever be killed by Isis.
