Thread: British guy who fought against IS is now being charged with terrorism offence

  1. #21
    Could it be that they are prosecuting him in preparation of prosecuting any ex-ISIL fighters who come back, so they can't claim they are being unfairly treated? Especially in light of the fact that two "high profile" British ISIL fighters have just been captured.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    Or could it be that anyone who leaves these shores and goes abroad to fight for or against a terrorist group is actually part of the worldwide terrorism
    problem and is therefore liable to prosecution ?

    Could be.. but that's an extremely spurious line to take given that the RAF and our special forces have been openly helping these groups. If the govt view is that these groups are sound enough to back militarily, then they can't view them as terrorists.

    +1 I really hope so. Thank goodness nothing was so PC 50 years ago,because a lot of us would have been in serious bother for what we got away with.

    No, our government have ordered the farces to go out there, that is not wuite the same thing is it.
    Our armed forces are for our protection, they dont do much of that do they, they just go where our government tells them to go.
    Hands up all those that trust our government to be honest, straightforward and do the right thing for us as a country ??
    So thats nobody then

    No? No matter how much well-deserved cynicism you might have about the government, you can't seriously think that the government have ordered the armed forces out there to fight and provide air strikes in support of terrorists.

    It all depends on whose side of the fence you sit,some Kurdish groups are classed as terrorists. However we classed them as allies the line is a very thin one.

    This guy is being Scapegoated as a warning from the government that any and i mean any british citizen that dares to fight against their beloved religion of peace will not be tolerated in any way regardless of the circumstances.
