Mad dogs or Englishmen ?

Should we pursue a shoot to kill policy with ISIS volunteers OR bring them back to the UK for a "fair trial",   when they can spend time in prison, reinforcing their medieval beliefs at the expense of the tax-payer ?          :ph34r:

It depends what you mean by "shoot to kill". However I think that, if they are captured, they should be tried by their peers in Syria - it's only fair after all. Sharia courts will know what punishment is called for if they are found guilty.

Up till now, I believe they've been taking them out with drones and air strikes, but there may be a problem later of captives, incl women and kids.       :ph34r:

Whatever happens to them, it shouldn't be a concern for the UK. They chose to go out to the Middle East and play soldiers against legitimate governments, so they must pay the consequences of their actions as deemed suitable by those legitimate governments.

Agreed.    Be interesting to discover how the border agencies and police throughout the EU perform in preventing their migration though ?       :ph34r:

I'm afraid there are more important issues to be resolved at the moment, such as the pressing question of who is going to become the next Everton manager. Let's get our priorities straight here!

:D        According to a piece on Newsnight tonight, 50% of the ISIS volunteers from the UK, have already returned. The cost of surveillance on those deemed a risk will be astronomical.       :ph34r:
