Why do Turkey and the Saudis sit on their hands and do nothing about ISIS.
The answer to the question: Is the enemy of my enemy my friend is an emphatic, NO! Turkey and the Saudis sit on their hands, leaving the U.S, France, and Great Britain to do the work. Why do Turkey and the Saudis sit on their hands? Because they fear rebellion within their own countries from ISIS sympathizers, and because they hate the Kurds
Did you watch the water canons and teargas being thrown by the Turkish government at Turkish Kurds. These people were running to join the fight against ISIS in Kubani at the Turkish/Syrian border. Turkey is trying to prevent them. This after Turkey pledged to help keep Kubani out of ISIS’ hands.
Why is American taxpayer money going to support countries in the Middle East who do nothing for themselves. It’s time to open our massive oil and gas reserves and shut down the flow of our money to the Middle East. Our government has been lied to so many times by our supposed allies, it is disgraceful. And this after we have shed American blood in their defense. Quit the madness. Now.
