More than 300 French nationals or residents are either currently fighting in Syria's civil war, planning to go and fight or have recently returned from there, the minister, Manuel Valls, told France Inter radio.

Well maybe they won't come back. We seem to have the same concerns.

How do you say... "oxymoron" in French?

“...they could pose a security threat when they come back.”

Plan SHOULD be to encourage them to go, but not to let them come back. Unfortunately, thanks to the EU, France no longer has control of her borders...
