Mr. Martin Savidge i love your news forum; why not invite non expects to share their opinion on your news forum?


I am not siding with either. However, I would suspect no one from the Western world wants their family members in a prison in any African nation. In addition, no Westerners would want their families in a prison in the Middle East.

I am looking at both sides of the coin. For instance, Mexico & Canada… will not extradite one of their citizens back to the U.S. if there’s a possibility their citizen would face the death penalty, which we have here in the U.S

Again, I am not siding with either, just making a point! I do, however, feel sympathy for the families. Surely, I can empathize with the families who have lost family members, loved ones.


The Scots are just trying to suck-up to the terrorists so they won’t be the next target.


The sanctimonious Scots are trying to win the holier than thou award.
There is such a thing as right and wrong and they are wrong. Disgraceful.
