The lives of hostages are much more important than anything else!!!!!!

Released prisoners may be captured again.

Stolen cash may be got back.

Assaulted women may go on living.

But,

HOW can you make a killed hostage, RELIVE??????



PLEASE,

just imagine, if you were hijacked by terrorists,

DON'T YOU WANT THE NEGOTIATION?????!!!!!!
The underlying problem: The moment you begin negotiating with terrorist groups, you validate terrorism as:
1.) An effective political tool
2.) A legitimate form of manipulating other nations and their policies
3.) A legitmate form of expressing political viewpoints

All of those things are going to make Terrorism grow substantially, the moment you begin to negotiate with them.

For every rule, there is an exception. There are circumstances that negotiation is not only a good idea ... it is the only option worth considering. Those cases are only very the most extreme.

I agree with GodofThunder03. If negotiations where to actually happen, it would surely favor the terrorists. In the mind of a terrorist, he/she would seek and to take the oppurtunity at every level.

If only terrorism was that easy to eliminate. We would have got rid of it years ago and not be where we are now.

Never, setting a precedent is much more harmful.

from what i have heard governements do not openly negotiate with terrorists but they often do it through back channels and nice and quietly so few people know about it.
a flat out "no" is unrealistic, there are always some extraneous circumstances that will demand and exception to the rule

Topic: Re-negotiating with terrorists


Never negotiate with hopeless ppl. First mission for any human being in my world is to escape and evade its captures, if they succeed honour where honour is due. If you fail. Well bad luck and let the pro sort them out after your death. If cought in the Middle East, you are probably 90% closer to death, then you would be on for an example Ireland. IMO western terrorists are more likely up for negotiations and agreements. My respons to these new terrorists are - Kill `Em all, let Allah sort `Em out! If paying them, you only get more dead ppl then ppl saved in the end. 8)

It gets tricky when there is a close link between terrorist groups and political parties.

eg IRA and Sinn Fein.
