The Taliban claimed South Korea paid them $20 million for releasing their hostages although the South Korean government denies any such payment. According to a spokesperson for Taliban:”We got more than $20 million from them(South Korean government) with it we will purchase arms, get our communication network renewed, and buy vehicles for carrying out more suicide attacks.”
Many people in South Korea are upset at the Christian missionaries who exposed themselves and their government by foolishly going to Afghanistan to convert people. They were not invited to convert anyone and this certainly is not the time nor the place to engage in such activities. Instead of converting souls, they have converted money into lethal weapons of war and death.
