Malaysia: Its OK to negotiate with Terrorist / Pirates?

Malaysia is probably a good victim for terrorist and pirates since we actually bow to terrorist and pirate demands. The recent news of USD 4 million being paid out to release 2 Malaysian confirms that. God knows the ransom monies obtain could be used to purchase more guns and vessels for future hijacks and probably killing of more innocent civilian lives. I wonder if Malaysia's recent action contributes to more violence in Somalia. On the other end, the lives of Malaysian are saved.

What should have been done? To pay or not to pay the ransom? Your 2 cents.
