So much for Washington’s no-ransom policy. I’m praying for the freedom of those missionaries, of course, but ransom is not the way to do it. It’s precisely because Libya paid ransom for the last batch of hostages that these extremist bandits were able to kidnap new ones.
If money is paid to the Abu Sayyaff, and the American troops currently there do not immediately exterminate them, there will only be more terror and chaos in the Philippines.
Not to say that chaos isn’t the norm. Hay buhay. Parang life.
