Well, apparently they have, en masse, thought it was a very silly mistake to do this. And now, humorously enough, they want to be let back in to this formerly terrible, wicked country to resume their cushy lives, no questions asked.
They are no doubt crying into their rifles to go back to a life of cars, westernised clothes and Mcdonalds.
So, the question we now have to scratch our chins over is- shall we let them back?
There are two ways of looking at this.
No one made them go over there. No one forced them, guns in backs, and made them go over to the dark side and, as I previously mentioned, to a country that probably they have never been to and has not seen their family in for several generations. Unlike those who they have no doubt stuck a gun in the back of in Iraq and made convert to a religion they don't believe in.
They are criminals. Pure and simple. Whether they never actually shot anyone, they endorsed it. They join in. So, sorry they are guilty by association- as are any of those who have sent money to the cause and continued to live in the rest of the world.
Do we really want to invite- UK national or not- a bunch of criminals into this country?
Well, no, no we don't actually.
Also, they have broken a trust, a trust which suggests that you behave in a civilised fashion. I'm not suggesting for one moment that anyone, from any religion, doesn't have the right to a say in how the country is. But baring arms and setting off to join terrorist organisations is a whole new ball game. A game changer if you will.
We only have limited intelligence into these terror cells. We can only speculate on what they've been told to do when they do, eventually, come home.
How do we know that for every 3 who genuinely are pissing their pants and crying for their Mummies, there are 4 who have been told to act like they've had a change of heart, get back in, and then start the same type of crap here?
We just don't know, and in light of the horrific scenes of 7/11, 9/11 and Lee Rigby's cruel, and public murder, its a risk I feel is just not worth taking.
Yes, there will be those who argue that they are young, foolish, they have been brainwashed and were born here, so they have to return.
Then in that case, they should be stripped of their passports, and those who do go around Brainwashing impressionable
It just feels like this country needs to stop being the rest of the worlds doormat frankly. We put up with so much crap that we shoudln't have to put up with. Our government is letting us down.
There are good and bad in all races and religions, don't get me wrong, but when it comes to the point where an 82 year old Gran is beheaded in her garden and the Police have to straight away reassure us its a nutter and not a terrorist (although there's a seriously thin line between the two if you ask me), then the whole laws on how we deal with behaviour like this needs updating.
I am sick of living in a culture of fear, and I doubt I'm the only one.
So, its time to lobby our Politicians to stop pussy footing around and get some balls. No, we don't want you back, simple.
If nothing else it will deter other idiots from going and joining them.
