Why Does Zoolander Come To Mind?

From the Telegraph:
Tony Abbott, Australia’s prime minister, has urged Australians not to join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) “death cult” after a 25-year-old male model from Melbourne became the latest foreign recruit to die while fighting with militants in Syria.
Sharky Jama, a former model and keen football player from Melbourne’s Somali community, had been based in Iraq but was shot dead in Syria.
His family said they received a text message and phone call from someone on Monday informing them that he had been killed.

I dunno. Let's say you're an Australian and you have someone living near you who is inclined to think that jihad is a good thing, and subscribes to the other tenets of ISIS. Would you rather have that guy alive in Australia, or dead in Syria? Easy choice.

Jay: the big concern is that some of them will survive and come back to their "home" country with experience, but not enough of the nasty type, war is hell and all that, that they've still got some thirst for jihad.
