Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
"I don't think she should be treated better than people who have put their lives on the line for you and got injured physically and mentally."

Neither do I, Al. But can you point out to me where anyone on this thread is suggesting that she should be? The general consensus seems to be that she should be allowed to return, and then thoroughly investigated, de-briefed, de-radicalised (if that's possible), and subjected to due process of law - with a prison sentence the likely outcome. I don't really see that as being 'treated better than people who...yadda yadda'.

And I'm in absolute agreement with your abhorrence at the treatment of ex-servicemen and women who are unable to resume normal civilian life due to their physical or mental injuries. But that has little or nothing to do with a teenage girl who has almost certainly been psychologically damaged by the brainwashing techniques of IS and its supporters. And it has absolutely nothing to do with the unborn child she's carrying, who is completely innocent in all of this.
