Dutch is strongly against the idea of taking Anna as hostage. "She'll give away our position any way she can. No deal."

But what's the alternative? Would Dutch just have her executed in cold blood? I don't see it, but I don't see the alternative.
Tie her up and gag her in the camp so she's eventually rescued? Seems risky if she's just going to give away their position.

Did Dillon save her life by insisting she goes with them?


Whoops, wrong place, please move to Predator discussions.

Tie her up and gag her

It's certainly the first thing I'd do.

Bullet through the head. Unfortunately.

Hey, no judging here. My motto is "no shame in my game".

They could easily have just tied her up and left her. When Hawkins gets off the radio he says that intel shows more guerrillas are only about 30 minutes away and closing, so it's not like she would have starved to death before they could have found and freed her. And all she could possibly have told them was that it was an American team that hit the camp, and what were they ever going to be able to do about it if she did?

She could've told the guerillas which direction they went.

Blindfolds don't always work. She could've tilted her head far back enough to see under it or merely listened to their footsteps and voices to determine which direction they went when they left.

They would've had to waste time by leaving in one direction and then cutting back to the correct one, so her info would lead the guerillas away from them. They didn't have the time.

Plus, it was necessary for the story.

He probably would have done that Hollywood trope of knocking her out with a single punch and leaving her unconscious conveniently long enough to make their escape.

You can choke somebody out in 13 seconds. 

I would've knocked her unconscious, bound her,  and then went on my merry way.  Black ops team isn't going to make it obvious on their exfil which way they went. 

Blackops have different rules though.  I think that if american and german soldiers were executing each other during the battle of the bulge because they didn't want to let them go and re-strengthen the enemy, nor hold them with the enemy attacking, that a blackops team in enemy territory would have to be considering just offing her. 

If she did wake up and see which direction they went it would probably not make much difference.  Once line of sight is broken in the woods, unless you have a professional tracker or some shit, it doesn't really matter.  Dutch's team could've walked in a running creek for 40 meters and you would have no idea where they popped out at.

I would've thought knock out/tie up/bail, too.

I mean ....she was gona shoot him.  ??? :laugh:

And yet he didn't kill her there and then.

Come to think of it, what do you think Anna's role with the guerrillas actually was? She didn't present as a soldier, and there don't appear to be any other women present in the camp. Do you think she was even a member of the outfit or just a collaborator or some sort? Maybe she was an interpreter for the Russians, given her apparent language skills.

Probably would have left her at the guerrilla stronghold, tied up.
