(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday the United States was asking European allies to take back over 800 Islamic State fighters captured in Syria and put them on trial.
The Caliphate is ready to fall, he said in a Tweet. The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them...

Allies need to step up and do some heavy lifting. It's always the same few while the rest whistle dixie.
“The alternative is not a good one in that we will be forced to release them...”
Military trial or send them to Gitmo. Why release them?
They should release them. In the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Make it look like an accident.
“She sank so fast we had no time to get below and unlock the prisoners”
We certainly have no legal right to be arresting, detaining, or doing anything with European residents we "capture" there.
Put them in a boat, and have an “unfortunate” boating accident.
What does history predict?
They will release them sooner rather than later.
since they were captured after shooting at our guys, we darn sure do have the legal right to capture them and put them on trial
Shoot them all . Expunge their genes from the fabric of humanity , 100%
it was a very large whale, cap’n. A Very large whale. Swallowed the whole lifeboat right up.
Big mistake to let these dudes live . They don’t deserve justice , they deserve death . Eradicate them entirely . Gas um , ok
Capturing ISIS terrorists in Syria is like having the Chinese arrest U.S. criminals in Mexico.
We wouldn’t be sending Syrian nationals to a foreign country for trial. We’d be sending, for example, German nationals who traveled to Syria to commit atrocities back to Germany for a military trial - no laughing allowed. Or Germany can just send a firing squad over to Syria and dispatch their traitors on the spot, works either way.
Alligators need food too.
These pansies wont dare enter the invader muslim enclaves they have produced in their own countries and you want them to put captured ISIS murderers from these communities on trial? funny. good luck, there already running out the door
Give them to the Kurds.
The big mistake started under Dubya in 2002 when we didnt deal with illegal combatants on the ground in Afghanistan, and instead started shipping them to Gitmo.
Sharks have to eat too.
Make it look like an accident.
She sank so fast we had no time to get below and unlock the prisoners
No that is historically incorrect - the ship was caught in a terrible storm and sheltered in the lee of a nearby island. After the anchor was set a very awful, powerful, really terrible strong gust of wind caused the anchor to drag and take all the prisoners chained to it overboard - it was just too fast to be halted. We all mourn their loss ...
