A single prisoner of war is being exchanged with one thousand twenty seven convicted criminals. If you ever heard the term ”Asymmetrical Warfare” – this is an appropriate illustration.
One for a thousand. Who is the winner in this trade? The side who gets a thousand men and women released, or the side who gets one? The side who proves that NO ONE is left behind, or the side who realizes that this kind of business is very profitable. Will this trade bring peace or will it bring war? Will it mean life or will it mean death? I have absolutely no bloody idea. I have absolutely no bloody idea how the negotiations have been performed and what else is included in this agreement. Anyone who gives you easy answers is a liar.
But one thing is sure: being prepared to take a risk, is the definition of courage.
