forget the deadline, isis ain't killing them. the first japanese got killed cause he ran into the street dressed like a woman yelling he was isis. naturally when isis found out about it they drew a beat on him. but they want this woman. a gesture for the widows. baghdadi gains points with the widows here. forget the deadline. the widows want this lady.

that pilot is already dead. they killed him right after he was captured. if not they would have shown him by now. they are hoping jordon will release that woman without them having to show the live body. once they start giving isis what they want isis has all the power. don't give into them.

Yes, the pilot is already dead. And, if that woman was sentenced to death for killing 60 people, why has she not been executed. I don't think Israel has an appeal process like the US where an offender sentenced to death can appeal for 20 yrs. I don't understand that either. We need to go back to the old days where if you had a death sentence, have a hanging on the court house square on Saturday at sunrise. That would do away with a lot of this 'if you give me mine, I will give you yours'.

I actually agree with Sarah D. on this one. . . ISIS and a lot of terrorists have perpetrated such barbaric horrors that to grant leniency and prison (paid by taxpayers) is actually, in itself a form of bizarre, weird, strange barbarity all of its own.

I'm familiar with the usual "you lower yourself to their level when you hang, etc." argument, but were ISIS to realize that what they do will result in their being eliminated from this life.

Unfortunately, when you have groups of people so utterly convinced that by killing others, they are fulfilling a phony prophet's demands, then this probably overrides any threat a mere human mortal can make towards them.

Since the Jordanian pilot isn't presented alive we must presume that he is already dead,so no deal.

Can't help but notice that the strength of a terrorist group seems to depend on money in their possession.

Yes, obviously.

Without support and funding, no weapons, no war.
