Hostage Ordeal Appears To Be Ending

This post has to be written in haste. It appears that the hostage crisis involving kidnapped South Korean Christian workers is about to end with all the hostages being released. Some of the remaining hostages taken by the Taliban have already been released. I will not comment on the details of the arrangement between the South Korean government and the Taliban at this time. However, those who want to blame the hostages for this ordeal should read the entire article linked here. A German engineer and four Afghan colleagues who were kidnapped a day before the South Koreans are still being held. The Taliban hostage taking it seems is not the result over rage at Christian activity; the Christian workers just happened to fall into the hands of a terrorist group seeking to kidnap anyone from another nation.
