that we should be willing to negotiate with all, including terrorists
Washington Mediation Association President Cris Currie writes on the Mediate. I bring a different perspective to this discourse, and I differ with Mr. Currie. The terrorists first tried to kill upwards of 50,000 people by toppling the World Trade Center through the massive use of explosives in the underground parking garage in 1991. A plot to crash an airliner into the Eiffel Tower was foiled. Finally, I learned that one could not talk with someone who is physically attacking you, is intent on killing you, and just as intent on dying in the process. We called it "suicide by cop".
Negotiating terrorists only exacerbates the situation. I don't think we should negotiate with terrorists because if we negotiate with terrorists then they have the power to do what they want. Do you think the terrorists would listen to us? No way! Terrorists want to earn profit. However, negotiating is fair. It is not profitable but it is also not a loss. Also, we have to listen to terrorists' desires because they have a lot of hostages and if we do not listen to them, the hostages will be dead. If we don't give them the power then only a few lives may be lost rather that many lives being lost. It is basically choosing the lesser of two evils.
Who started We don’t negotiate with terrorists ? The president who did just that more than any other. What you may not have heard said quite so often is why that is the case. Let’s stop this reactionary nonsense. But the reason is crucially important, because it brings to the fore one of the great hypocrisies under which the United States is forced to-or has chosen to-labor, and one we should do away with posthaste: this ridiculous idea that We don’t negotiate with terrorists. With respect to the release of the hirsute quintet, here’s the deal. We declared war on the Taliban in 2001.
We should negotiate with terrorists. Negotiating with terrorists affirms the values of human life and community. With globalization and social media affording terrorists broader possibilities of influence, do you think governments should negotiate with them or refrain from doing so?
We should negotiate with terrorists. Consider Israel’s history of lopsided prisoner swaps with terrorist groups. Israel once traded 4,700 detainees to the Palestinian Liberation Organization for six Israeli soldiers. With globalization and social media affording terrorists broader possibilities of influence, do you think governments should negotiate with them or refrain from doing so? Be a knowledge explorer.

Once you start to negotiate with terrorists, you're ceding control to them . In general I think it is a bad idea. The US should not negotiate with some terrorists but not all terrorists are the same and it might be useful to negotiate with some.
Once you start to negotiate with terrorists, you're ceding control to them, allowing the terms to be dictated by those who are willing to threaten the most terrible things (more)Loadin. For example I could see the reason to negotiate with Hezbollah but not with al-Shabab.

Terrorism can never be defeated by military means alone. But how do you talk to militants with blood on their hands? Britain’s chief negotiator of the Northern Ireland peace deal, Jonathan Powell, explains how it can – and must – be done (for a start, always shake hands).
We should never negotiate with terrorists. I thought that was our policy and why in all that is right in this world would be want to change that. I don't mind diplomatic relations with sensible people, but the only way to negotiate with a terrorist is to get off the first shot. You can't negotiate with people who's only goal is to kill you. At the present time we, as a nation have a gun stuck in our collective faces. Under those conditions we have only two choices.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you .
An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind. If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The president who didn’t negotiate with terrorists negotiated a deal that gave the state more than 2,000 anti-tank missiles, maintaining in his mind the fiction that he hadn’t negotiated with terrorists through the belief that his people were dealing only with Iranian "moderates".
