    But, since you brought it up, his life is no more danger now than it would otherwise be.
    Dude, Afghan detainees are the fathers, the brothers, sons and cousins of the guys holding this soldier hostage. How they were treated determines how he is treated.

    Then they'll simply execute him. Brilliant stratagem.

    Perhaps you should leave the fighting to others.....


    "There were young knights among them who had never been present at a stricken field. Some could not look upon it and some could not speak and they held themselves apart from the others who were cutting down the prisoners at My Lord's orders, for the prisoners were a body too numerous to be guarded by those of us who were left. Then Jean de Rye, an aged knight of Burgundy who had been sore wounded in the battle, rode up to the group of young knights and said: 'Are ye maidens with your downcast eyes? Look well upon it. See all of it. Close your eyes to nothing. For a battle is fought to be won. And it is this that happens if you lose."
    Froissartís Chronicles, 14th century




    Now I don't agree with the tactic suggested, that said. I didn't recoil in horror like a liberal to a full days work.....

    Mmm, yes. Cause it's either terrorism or fruit baskets. There's definitely no in between.

    and I see your fruit basket and raise you

    If the US are planning to send a rescue team, they should act quickly.
    Tracking the hostage will get harder and harder as time passes.

    What does it has to do with being liberal or conservative?
    It's about military strategy.
