  1. Ignoring the teenagers nationality, the differing perspective of the presented headlines will undoubtedly mirror the differing views on how this person and issue should be addressed. The guardian reports “I just want to get away from here,” she was quoted as saying. “I want to get away from the war, from the many weapons, from the noise.” She added: “I just want to go home to my family.” The media outlets said the teenager had told them she regretted joining Isis, wanted to be extradited to Germany and would cooperate with authorities. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jul/24/home-linda-wenzel-german-teenager-joined-isis-speaks-of-regrets Whereas is Australia " schoolgirl turned IS bride Linda Wenzel could face trial ... after reportedly admitting to killing Iraqi soldiers after she was tracked down hiding in a tunnel "She took her mum’s credit card and flew from Berlin to Turkey before making her way to the so-called caliphate." 'An anonymous officer in Iraq’s elite counter terrorism unit told The Telegraph said she was a sniper for ISIS. He said: “We found her with a gun in her hand next to her Chechen husband, who was killed by Iraqi forces in a firefight. She said she had killed a number of our men in the battle. http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/captured-german-schoolgirl-turned-is-bride-linda-wenzel-turned-bride-could-face-trial/news-story/ec6f02d34e262d08eca341ae31831abc My opinion is on the harsh side, but in my opinion befits the crimes I'll bet she just wants to go home. Now I'm on the side that says she should be tried in Iraq and face punishment there. ANYONE who left their countries to become part of ISIS should be tried in the country they went to. Anyone who went 'to help civilians' should be able to prove they were part of MSF, the red cross, crescent cross or some other international recognised aid organisation Before anyone says ah but she's now a mother, the child is innocent: I agree, but the Mother clearly has charges to answer and if found guilty then given the circumstances the child could be in danger in her care. Whether the child is then returned to the mother, the mothers family, the fathers family, or taken into care and where, is for professionals to decide.

  6. its been in the news recently. not new, but many including blair still think it was the right thing to do. anyone any thoughts? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/special_reports/struggle_for_iraq/ an interesting recent docu; http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01rh8hd/Panorama_The_Spies_Who_Fooled_the_World/ sort of resembled in that film green zone!
  7. ISIL appear to taking more territory in Iraq and the question is whether the US And other powers will let them take over Iraq ? The U.S. Does not allow boots on the ground to fight ISIL other than special forces operations and training Kurds/Iraqi army. To defeat ISIL would require tens of thousands of boots on the ground with armed vehicles, working with air power. At the moment this does notappear likely ahead of the 2016 presidential election and I cannot see other countries volunteering their forces. I therefore think it is quite possible that ISIL will take over most of Iraq and only Baghdad will be defended. This may force Iran into taking action to at least secure part of the border area in Iraq. Question is why world leaders are not holding urgent talks to at least see what ideas there are for dealing with the situation. The longer they leave it to take action the more difficult it would be.
