Hanging Sajida al-Rishawi

 Here's the kind of approach I'd like to see more of: Jordan threatens to hang all Daesh prisoners if pilot is killed.  From Al Bawaba news, via World Affairs Journal.  Violence does solve some problems.  If every time ISIS murders a hostage, multiple ISIS prisoners are executed, it will set up a calculus that ISIS cannot win and will move us closer to the day when we are rid of this scourge.  If they hang al-Rishawi, I hope they feed her a ham sandwich first.

Update (3 Feb.): The brutality of ISIS is matched by its dishonesty.  The government of Jordan as confirmed that Lt. Mu'ath al-Kasasbeh was burned alive a month ago.  ISIS "negotiated" for Ms. al-Rashawi's release by promising not to kill a man they'd already burned alive, and by beheading the man they offered in return for her.  Jordan is preparing to hang al-Rashawi and five others shortly.  May such a fate befall every member of ISIS.
