What do you think of this case?
23 Koreans were kidnapped.
2 were killed.
Its not right.... Feel sorry for their family members in South Korea.
What you guys think about it?

Of course kidnapping and killing is not right.
That goes without saying, in my opinion.

This kind of thing was inevitable. The Korean missionaries seem to have a culture of trying to outdo each other in order to attract more people to attend there churches in Korea, hence these mission abroad are mostly PR stunts under the guise of humanitarian missions to raise the profile of the church. The more dangerous the place, the better PR and more new members they attract.

Outlook doesn't look too good though, Afghan authorities are not entertaining the idea of a prisoner release that the Taliban are demanding.

And i saw the News last night. The family members want US to interfere in this case. Well, we shall see what is going to happen next.

I have to agree with Dave. But still, i feel sorry for them, they are in the end still victims, whether of their own delusions or the Taleban.
