US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino called for the repatriation of foreigners who traveled to Syria to fight and/or join the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) so they could be prosecuted while speaking to the press in Washington DC on Tuesday.

“Repatriating these foreign terrorist fighters to their countries of origin, ensuring that they’re prosecuted and detained, that’s the best solution to preventing them from returning to the battlefield. We view these fighters as a global threat and we seek global cooperation to resolve that threat,” Palladino said.

He went on to say that there were “no timelines to discuss” regarding the US withdrawal from Syria, but that it would be “coordinated and we’re going to continue to work together to fight ISIS.”

Palladino also commented on the upcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un in Vietnam, which will be their second face-to-face meeting.

“We remain confident in the commitments made by President Trump and Chairman Kim that those commitments made at the Singapore summit will be fulfilled,” Palladino said.

That US State Department Deputy Bigmouth/Nobrain forgets that the US, UK, KSA plus other Gulf and Muslim Brother states created the IS monster organization that attracted Jihadi. The sponsors of Jihadi mosks and the initiators of the wars that used the Jihadi as mercenaries must bear the costs of their radicalized Muslim warriors. They have abandoned their home countries and their citizenships to go to their promised Caliphate, and they swore the oath of fealty to their new head of state who named himself caliph.

If you send ISIS back to where they came from they will just go straight back to Israel being hailed as heroes, much better to leave them in Syria so they get a bullet in the back of their heads.

‘God will find his own…’

It’s not like teenagers who made a mistake. These are trained mass murderes who slaughter without regard for life or dignity They will be used by various organizations to deal drugs traffic in humans and all manner of evil after being proven psychologically damaged like there handlers. It’s more an stateless zionist army of evil ready to do I’ll will. The frog and scorpion story at a river crossing comes to mind

“‘God will find his own…’” => Actually, it’s “Kill ’em all, God will sort his owns”. And it’s attributed (likely wrongly) to Arnaud Almaric who was allegedly asked how to sort Catholics from Cathares heretics during the Béziers siege in 1209AD. Arnaud Almaric’s “crusaders” killed everybody, even the babies “It’s more an stateless zionist army of evil ready to do I’ll will” => Nope, they inspire directly on the Hadiths, they absolutely act EXACTLY like the Jaysh al-Muhammad that Invaded Syria in 636AD. The “Zionist Army” killed 75-85k in 71 years. Meanwhile, 100% Middle-East internal wars where neither ’em nor… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, “Kill ’em all, God will sort his owns” is an attitude the French have shown in a number of quasi religious wars. An in-human approach to wars that were all UN-winable. Used by them up to the Chevenez wars plus earlier and later actions against my religion.

But IMHO that is a sound approach against IS…

BTW. Israel and the Zionists are a no topic here.

@Rex, right, do it the crusader way. And ‘God will find his own…’ Actually the proverb starts with – kill all…

@Goyim, better send them to the US and other friends of Syria – sorry, no proves that they were send by the Israeli Zionists.

A noose or a bullet in the neck would be more cost effective than dilapidating tax-payers’ money at repatriating them, judging them and jailing them for life. Here, a convict cost us about €12k a year… Moreover, Hague Convention allows the summary execution of irregular combatants.

@Daeshbags-Sux, The US have declared victory over IS. The Nuremberg and Tokyo trials’ costs were paid by the victors. The US printers of the FIAT Dollar want others to pay for the Jihadi that the US “Friends of Syria” have created and used.

The IS are only irregulars if the caliphate did never exist. It existed on the territory of Syria and Iraq. But they are stateless now. The Federal Republic of Germany also had to keep stateless Fascists that were on German soil by chance. In Germany they were treated according to local law.

Except that the ISIS monster was created by Iran as a death trap to get rid of Sunni resistance in Iraq then fill the vacuum while looking like heroes despite they did barely nothing and subcontracted their elimination to Yanks and Kurds…

Don’t you remember we had no shitlamic terrorism before 1979? There were just Palestinian….

@Daeshbags-Sux, right, we had no IS or similar in 1979, except those created by the US and their KSA affiliates. On this Forum we have a blank between 1979 until the Syrian oil and pipeline war, that the US started in 2011?

Let us stop about Iran’s actions before 2011, d’accord? – In turn I agree with You on the Iran’s actions after the NEW York attack until 2011?
You are likely right with Your allegations before 2011.

The terrorists and so, not to mention any religion, were in Palestine ever since 1918. The Balfour promise created all of them, d’accord?
