We'll see if they release her.
Then we need to track them down and kill them.
First, they take a hostage
Then, they demand all female prisoners be released within 72 hours
The other side says all female prisoners were going to be released soon anyway.
So the female prisoners are released.
The hostage is released.
IF the female prisoners are released now, the terrorists cannot return the hostage without ''losing face''. Because they were scheduled for release anyway, the terrorist must ask for something else.
IMO the only way for the coalition to ''win'' is to rescue the hostage.
