War has turned into something other than the world has witnessed in a very long time. We no longer fight battles with men in uniforms proudly representing another country. In the Middle East the enemy can look just like a farmer or innocent citizen of that region. They do not want bullets. A sharp knife will do. They like to slice the heads off of humans and blood of an innocent reporter off their knife to slice again.
A REPORTER WAS WELCOMED TO ANY WAR REGION BECAUSE THEY WERE THE BEST WAY FOR ANY SIDE TO GET THEIR MESSAGE OUT TO THE WORLD WEATHER YOU AGREED WITH THEIR CAUSE OR NOT. today THE ENEMY ARE FELLOW Americans OR Allies WHO ARE BELIEVING IN A MILITANT FORM OF RELIGION THAT SEEKS TO KILL ALL WHO DO NIT BELIEVE JUST AS THEY DO. what God Suggests YOU GO OUT AND KILL PEOPLE? they MUST BE MIS READING THEIR HOLY READINGS IN A VERY WRONG WAY.
hostage NEGOTIATIONS HAVE CHANGED IN RECENT YEARS TOO. One is very lucky to escape being held hostage and returning to a normal life again. Some are being held hostage for many years. Now hostage taking has become a thriving business. It involves the government, one’s job, their family and all aspects of a life with people who do not value life very much.
Former FBI Agent Jack Cloohan now works as a full time negotiator. He has successfully gained the release of more than 150 kidnapped victims. He tries to keep the information stream alive in order to even know where kidnapped victims could possibly be. The average rand some is about 2 Million dollars cash. They don’t take a wire transfer. They don’t take credit cards. They don’t take Euros. In fact they are one of the few who still value the American dollar and want it.
You are held at their mercy and are trying to transport that kind and amount of cash in a war zone safely.The actual exchange of money can take place at border crossings. You then have to move the victim in the dark. In the case of James Foley, they made a rand some demand of 130 Million dollars plus the release of certain prisoners . It is all a game of revenge and revenge is sweet to them.
Americans in their eyes are the worse people on the face of the earth. The British are focusing on certain neighborhoods in London where several hundred Muslim men have been recruited into becoming some of the most brutal executioners in the Arab world. These men belong to an extreme manipulated version of Islam that says that they do not belong to any nation. Meanwhile we march around in our uniform pledging allegiance to our flag.
America needs to wake up and realize the beast that is growing within our borders and take precausions against being held victim to hostage takers.
