Up to six Australians have died fighting with terrorist group al-Qa’ida and its affiliates in Syria, according to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation’s director-general David Irvine.
Australian nationals were also travelling to the Middle East to join the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah, Mr Irvine said.
Australia is at war with these terrorists. We have soldiers fighting al-Qa’ida and the Taliban and have taken killed and wounded casualties so we can clearly state that they are the enemy. Why is it then that these so called “Australians” aren’t charged with Aiding the Enemy or Treason and either incarcerated for lengthy stretches or have their citizenship revoked and deported back to the shit hole they come from.
If I had signed up with the Viet Cong, my father with Hitler or my Grandfather with the Boers we would’ve been in all sorts of strife with my Grandfather probably hung at the yardarm. Yet these men come to Australia, often enough via boats, take advantage of our hospitality viz a viz Social Security payments, put shit on us publically in their mosques, travel back over seas and fight with the enemy and all ASIO can do is watch them while human rights lawyers defend their situation.
It is indefensible.
At the very least can we just revoke their citizenship and send them and their families back where they come from. Lets face it, the money for the tickets to fly back home most probably came from you and me via taxes for social security payments.
Bad show all round.
