For sure, being held captive for five years must, for lack of a better term, BLOW. I'm not arguing with that for one second. However, CNN had this entire piece entitled, "Hostages to Heroes." Now that's going a little too far, innit? What did this three war profiteers do to become heroes, except crash their plane and get their dumb asses kidnapped?? They didn't even escape on their own! They needed the Columbian government to storm in guns a'blazin' to carry them out.
I just can't bring myself to feel sorry for contractors who wittingly go into warzones in order to line their own pockets. They act all fucking surprised when they get their greedy asses kidnapped or greedy heads chopped off. I'm not saying they deserve it, (maybe a little?) but they certainly shouldn't act surprised.
That is all.
