US President Donald Trump personally made a number of appeals to European leaders requesting they do more to take responsibility for their ISIS-affiliated nationals... the Europeans refused to budge, arguing that having them return home would increase the risk of Islamist-inspired acts of terrorism....
[snip]Ever since the US-led coalition succeeded in destroying most of ISIS in Syria, one vital issue has left been unresolved, namely: what to do with the thousands of ISIS fighters who were taken prisoner and confined to Kurdish-run detention centres.
The problem is particularly acute with regard to the estimated 2,500 foreign fighters -- the majority of them holding European passports -- and their dependents who abandoned their home countries for fight for ISIS.

No matter the age or sex of the person who leaves their country to join the enemy in fighting against their country...they deserve the consequences of being a traitor, death.
About 4 European Nations.
Depends. If Congress substitutes its judgment then it gets the blame.
ISIS and their Jihadist buddies will lose every time to Trump-like determined will, focus, and lethal force. They will win every time to Bush-like blurred focus and Obama-like treason.
Is this a trick question? No matter what happens, the liberals and their bleating sheep in the MSM will blame Trump.
Woodrow Wilson and Kemal Ataturk.
ie. ISIS will not come back unless we get a weak President like Bush or Obama. That is why we need Trump-like leaders from here on out.
Every election will be a fight for the survival of America and the world.
Jihadi Islamists have been coming back for 1400 years!
Keeping them quiet for a generation would involve cruelty Americans have no stomach for.
As Americans, we can’t bring ourselves to bomb the camps where ISIS fighters are incarcerated as we leave. The Turks, Kurds, Syrians, and Russians have no such qualms -— except that they might prefer to do them one by one so they have more fun at it. If they let them loose they will have to fight them later, or Europe will wish they had taken them back and put them in a nice safe prison for life. We did our part and then some.
Islam is not about to just go away and die, nor are their steadfast traditions...even if they recognize they are centuries behind the “west”.
No entity ever got rid of ISIS including United States. So if they come back how is that such a guess who is to blame? Damn fools we have no matter where we look. Killers are all over everywhere.
Countries aren’t going to accept back people who they claim, quite rightly, have forfeited citizenship. The Kurds, quite rightly, have no incentive to hold on to the prisoners anymore. One way or the other all those ISIS fighters are going to be back in circulation and they’ll be wanting to take it out on someone.
Come back? They probably never left. They just took new names.
Whatever nation is terrorized in person by ISIS will have to face it.
You know with President Trump, if we are in danger, he will handle it.
How are we going to stop them?
No moslem “prisioners” should ever be taken....period.
They’re only the JV. Barry Soetoros said so.
Under Trump we've essentially annihilated them. Don't get your question.
