    I believe that you NEVER make deals with terrorists...either stall for time until you can kill the terrorists/free the hostages through force or ignore them.

    But never make deals.

    Otherwise you just encourage other terrorists to capture others.

    I don't know if it's true, but I am hearing the Taliban threatened to kill him.

    You don't free five potential terrorists. You just send in Stallone.

    Are you kidding? John McCain was offered a chance to go home by the North Vietnamese for propaganda reasons. His father was CINCPAC. He told the North Vietnamese he would leave after all of those POW's who were caught before left, in other words when his turn came. James Stockdale who was our VP nominee spoke very highly of John McCain during their stints as POW's.

    This is what disgusts me about partisan politics. The willingness to drag good men's name through the mud just for political gain. What ever one may feel about McCain's politics of today or his service in the senate has nothing to do with his military service. If this is what this thread is about, have at as I am through with it before even getting started. This type of politics makes me sick.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I am no admirer of McCain but I never heard anything about collaboration. He was severely tortured because he wouldn't collaborate.

    In fact, as I think about it, it hardly applies to prisoners of war.
    Absolute nonsense. You don't leave POWs behind, you do what it takes to go in and get them. For crying out loud, they're American fighting men, your buddies, fathers, brothers, children, what are you going to do, just forget about them, go home and have a beer while the enemy tortures and kills them?
