This is going to sounds insensitive, but in all seriousness, what the heck were they thinking going to Afghanistan like that?
Not insensitive, these 2 people are just as stupid as those 2 girls that went to Afghanistan to convert their people to Christianity and cost the U.S. millions of dollars to save them.
Very sad outcome portends here. A spectacular lack of judgment, that puts a couple in such a dangerous situation. Pray for the best.
I'm so sick of these people that expect their governments to get them out of a situation they got themselves into. They went to Afghanistan of their own free will; no one forced them to go there. Perhaps the U.S. and Canada should refuse to intervene, which will, hopefully, put an end to their foolish behavior. Besides, don't these knuckleheads have jobs, or are they counting on the profits they'll make from writing a book when they get back to Canada (or the U.S.)?
Note to all: Unless you are a member of the military on official business, stay out of war zones.
Very simple. If their trip doesn't pass a basic stupidity test, those rescued by our government must pay all expenses.
