Hi, I would suggest all people involved in trip over “dangerous countries” and their organisations’ to read the linked article.
Ransom and mediation in a kidnap situation are always a big problem, and in the article you can probably understand how big is it!
As my short and probably “silly or naive” consideration, I think it would be way better for people, organisations, NGOs, etc, that work in dangerous areas, to attend a proper preparation and training, to connect themselves with serious and diligent “travel Risk Management” company, thus to drastically reduce the probability to be be subject to “an abduction”.
It isn’t kidnappers who regulate the market for hostage taking. It’s insurance companies.

Up and coming country singer Joe Bachman wants to send a message to you. He wants you to know what our veterans have gone through and what they, upon returning home, continue to go through.

Since I have been out of the service I have lost many friends. Brothers and Sisters in uniform. This is an epidemic that must be addressed. Approximately 22 veterans commit suicide everyday. This is not acceptable. While the VA scandalizes itself and misuses funding while ignoring my brethren; and Capitol Hill and the White House send funding to far away shores while also giving medical care to illegal aliens; I am left wondering why we are ignored and forgotten.
22 Veterans a day. THAT’S INSANE! Why? How? some of these Veterans that take their own lives weren’t even deployed. There has to be a common link. So I did some digging. My mind automatically went searching for a medical reason, having been a Hospital Corpsman and Paramedic. With the aid of a few friends, we came across some articles that were published and since forgotten.
Let’s talk about the anti-malaria drug Mefloquine.
