The mystery of the pirates and our government

The United States government is negotiating with the pirates holding an American hostage.

This is the same government that attacked the Waco cult compound, resulting in the deaths of scores of children.

This is the same government that killed the wife and teen-age son of Randy Weaver, a man who just wanted to be left alone, up on Ruby Ridge in Idaho.

Why is our government, so quick to take up arms against its own citizens, being so patient with these pirates?

I guess there is a fear that the hostage will get killed. There was no fear about people dying in Waco or up on Ruby Ridge, though.

My prediction: The hostage will die. Either our government will kill him accidentally or the pirates will kill him on purpose.

I hope I'm wrong.
