But Is It One We Should Worry About Saving?

‘There is no doubt huge resources have been deployed in this case. And I myself have wondered whether that was proportionate. But at the end of the day… they have saved a human life.’

One which will be of benefit to our society? Well, judge for yourselves:

The court heard that the young man, who cannot be named, had an uncle who had been held at the US military detention centre at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.

And three of his brothers had travelled to fight for a jihadist group then known as the Al Nusra Front – which had links to Al Qaeda – in Syria. Two died in their teens and a third was wounded.

My vote is, of course, ‘No’.

    JuliaM, I’m with you, don’t stop these muslims from leaving the country and make sure they don’t come back. Whether they live or die is their problem, not ours.

      I concur: let them go but on the strictest proviso that they don’t come back – in part, in whole or for burial.

    So much for ‘freedom to travel’. When they are still children they should be under adult supervision and if that means ‘ward of the court’/council/state so be it. But beyond an age (TBD) they should be free to leave. Indeed, anyone wishing to go to become a terrorist should not only be allowed to go but be accompanied by all of his relatives here, no matter how distant. They should be allowed to travel wherever they wish once they have left these shores, but never, ever be allowed back. Their goods and chattels, property, profit from property and whathaveyou left behind should be confiscated.

      That sounds like an ideal solution!
