It's time to go to Plan B.
-- GHAZNI, Afghanistan -- South Korea and relatives of 21 kidnapped Koreans appealed for U.S. help Tuesday, but Afghanistan said for the first time it will not release insurgent prisoners — the Taliban's key demand to free the captives.Ok, Hamid... that's a good start, but here's the rest of the scenario.
You take that list of prisoners the Taliban gave you... and after drawing straws, or a round of one-potato - two potato... you, FIRST... hang two jihadis to get Timmy Terrorist's attention and, more importantly, balance out the scoreboard.
SECOND... tell Timmy to give up his hostages now... or you hang one of these terrorheads at the top of every hour until you empty out the hoosegow.
These guys don't understand Geneva Convention... they understand death... and until you start playing their game, they'll always be ahead of you.
Or you can just let the Koreans die.
It's that simple.

Personally... if my kid was in Afghanistan, and if it gave my child even a marginally better chance of survival - there isn't a raggedy-ass terrorist scrotum I'd hesitate to introduce to my good friend "Major Voltage".
So c'mon, let's be brutally honest. If right now, it was your kid pullin' security patrol out in the Panjwaii, what mother or father out there wouldn't be saying, "Red is negative, black is... "
