Yes; we can't risk the loss of lives. Otherwise, it would show that we care little for what ISIS does and they will continue to do what they want. Not giving them the money shows that we don't care about our people, which is a sign of weakness and causes a loss of morale.
No; giving them the money is a sign of government weakness. We do not negotiate with terrorists. The loss of two lives mean nothing in the long run, and not giving into their demands shows that they don't have power over us.
Yes i think they should pay. They don't deserve that kind of ending. What did they do?
ISIS is begging for War.Unless we act first,WE can make a difference and show that we are BAD and TOUGH and they should FEAR us!! ISIS is going DOWN!!!
Funding terrorists in return for hostages just encourages more hostages to be taken, also the money will be used against us to harm people.
imagine how much harm they can do with that money
I hate it for the 2 hostages, but ISIS will gain power and momentum if we give them the money
Ok, I care about life, but terrorists rarely keep their word, and it shows weakness
Try to enact a rescue operation, but at the end of the day, you can't show them you're willing to play that game. If you do, they'll be doing it left and right as a good way to make money. This isn't only a money because A) They'll use that money to kill people, and B) If you encourage hostage taking down the road, it is likely that people will be killed as a natural side-effect of that, probably more than if you just nipped the whole practice in the bud.
Im not trying to be heartless here i feal sorry for the hostages but giving 200,million pounds they can destroy the uk,america and japan with the weaponary they could get there hands on with that money it woulds be anarchy.so i dont think we should pay the money it would be realy dangerous with the money theyd be more dangerous than the taliban
IT's just two people.
200 million = more innocent deaths.
We can't give them money, that just makes them stronger. What we should do is bomb the crap out of them and show them they can no longer behead innocent people.
