Tough leaders and tough decisions

While the leaders of Afghanistan and South Korea are acting tough, and they are expected to live up to that image as strong leaders, that they will not yield under pressure, the fate of the 22 hostages hangs in a limbo. Heard that one more was shot last night. So 21 left. And at the rate it is going, the leaders can act tough for another 21 days before the ordeal is over. Great men think alike and behave alike. They will be remembered as strong and tough leaders. Stupid people need to be shot to learn a lesson in life. And they can be remembered, either as martyrs or fools.

The Koreans who went to Afghan for humanitarian missions were NOT there to be remembered. Least of all to be remembered as fools or martyrs, dear Red Bean.

The fact remains that they were caught in a crossfire they could do nothing much to. :)

we are ordinary beans and must not flirt with danger. there is no reason for them to be in that place. and this is not the first incident for a korean to be beheaded. they had it before and knew the pain, and they went again.

i can only say stupid and nothing else.

i wonder if the entire group of koreans were made aware of the real danger in afghan by their councillors when they volunteered to go?

these are young adults, not just school children. they know the risk. but they can be gullible if someone can convince them that 'the force be with you' or promise them heaven.

True, this may be the case.

I seriously do not think evangelical Christians go on overseas mission trip hanging on the promise of force or heaven. It's not like that one.

we need to be practical and realistic and know our limitations as man. and now this councillor brought a bunch of innocent idiots to be shot and causing so much pain to their families.

he deserved to be shot first. and that is too light a punishment for putting so many lives at risk and the trauma and agonies the families are going through.

Enough said. For all that has happened recently, I began to sit up n see the Koreans in different light.

When such tragedies occurred for families of diff nationalities— how do they react?

How will the families of mideasterners killed react? Loud wails amidst chest-thumping with eyes of vegeance beneath their veils?

How will the families of others react?

How had the Koreans reacted?
Nothing short of admirable response!
Observe closely! :)

anyone still want to start a war or volunteer to be in a war?

it is not a picnic or a party. it is a game where people got killed. and no need any reason.

when are we going to openly ban our people from these war zones?
