> i would only add that there are numerous examples of land-based peoples holding hostages and fed/clothed/looked after  them as well. i believe it was benjamin franklin who remarked how when euro-americans and natives met to exchange prisoners the native captives went running back to their tribe while the whites were reluctant and took the time to say good bye to their enemy
Not surprising when the point to much land-based hostage taking is to 
let them get to know you or study them. You are not their property or 
possession, you are their student and their teacher. It is well to say 
thank you for the lesson.
