    what should be done to americans captured by US or allied troops fighting against ISIS?
    Good question. I don't know. I tend to think if you join ISIS, you're probably mentally ill. The best I can come up with on the fly: if they were just "with" them then more leniency. If they personally killed or raped anybody, face justice in the country where apprehended under that county's laws. If that country is in such shambles there is no effective justice system, try them under US laws in either a military or federal civilian court.

    I agree, but in the end, summarary executions of anybody is not healthy for a democracy. Rather, those that diorectly committed terrorist attacks should face US death sentence. The others should just be handed over to the Syrian army for "trial".

    Terrorists are criminals, not soldiers.

    Try them in American courts and send them to maximum security prision.

    1) very expensive

    2) makes them a reason for their confederates to seize civilians for trade purposes

    Justice is worth the price we pay.

    And if you are so concerned about their confederates, then force the ones we capture into accepting Christianity.

    Waste of money. Behead them. No head, no paradise. Make the others who wish to join rethink their decision.
