Military situation is typically different than civilian from a motivational standpoint.
Usually in a civilian standpoint, the person doesn't have anything personal against you other than wanting money or some item or possession. (unless they are psycho and warped.)
In a military situation, I would agree with you, stay the hell away from your enemy.
There are many, many plans your captors have for you, none in your best interest. In the typically senario we face today, your life has less meaning to them than in wars past!
Good luck in your pursuit! Wish I were there to work with you on them!
