    Any American who's waging war against America or an ally should be tried by a military court for treason and if found guilty, execution by musketry.
    we would be hard pressed to find any muskets in the army's armory though in say Afghanistan, such weapons might well be available.

    Wouldn't they technically be fighting a war against Iraq and Syria that we elected to stick our nose in on no particular side whatsoever?

    I believe treason carries the death penalty, no?

    It think beheading American citizens is justification enough to have our military kill ISIS members

    what should be done to americans captured by US or allied troops fighting against ISIS?
    Prosecute them in a military tribunal for TREASON... then execute them.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice.

    Any US citizen found in combat against the US military with a group that has ipso facto declared war on the US, is guilty of treason, not by association, but by actions.

    Edit: I would be proud to be the guy that pulls the trigger in their firing squad.
