Do We Have To Tell Them EVERYTHING?! July 31, 2007

The Taliban have killed two hostages from a Christian Korean church group in Afghanistan, because Afghan President Hamed Karzai won’t release Taliban insurgents held as prisoners. They claim that they will kill more if their deadlines are not met.

Karzai should say, “Sure. We will do better than that: TWO prisoners for each hostage. So we owe you four now. Here they are: four heads, from your list of prisoners.”

Even the Taliban can understand that.

Karzai should not announce this to the world; only to the Taliban. It will only make people upset. Just give the Taliban a video of the preparation of each prisoner for “shipment”. For each additional hostage harmed, two more heads of prisoners from the Taliban’s list.

It is not consistent with Christianity, where we turn the other cheek. It is consistent with the Bible of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob: an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. Updated with “two heads are better than one.”

Greg, I am inclined to agree with you.

The poor Taliban! NO ONE will negotiate with them!

Brenda, I will commiserate with the poor Taliban when we have a memorial service for the whole bunch of them.
