Dozens of British fighters on the loose in Syria as Islamic State crumbles

Dead. Captured. On the run.

Those are the probable fates of the dozens of British citizens who travelled to Syria and Iraq to join the so called Islamic State terror group.

But even as the so-called Caliphate crumbles, remarkably little is known about what has become of its British followers.

    Let’s hope for the first option for all of them.

    Executed as deserters. Does it matter who does it?

    Stop calling then British.

    One cannot be both a Muslim and British, even if British born and bred, which most of them were not.

    I can almost guarantee that most of them are either back in Britain or on their way back.
