Perhaps things aren’t as bleak as they seem…

You don’t talk with terrorists or the regimes that support them.
You deliver a short ultimatum, tell them they have 48 hours to comply or they will die, then turn around and leave. If they as much as open their mouthes, you drag them outside, kick them down on their knees and shoot them in the back of the head.
That’s all you do.
If you do more than that, you’re encouraging them.
