    “I would think the surrounding countries would have some skin in the game.”


    Indeed they do. Learn some Arabic, Farsi or Turkish and go read their news.

    I was listening to a BBC radio show which focused on urban Saudis’ opinions regarding ISIS: it isn’t favourable.

    Hmm, no, one might be entertained but not educated.

    I suppose going to mid-Eastern websites would be a great start.
    Do you read Turkish or Arabic? (I don’t) That would be better than depending on the English language websites (of which there are quite a few and a couple which are reliable).


    Until then, search out articles. to find out how some of these countries are reacting to Western criticism.


    Or how Turkey, much like some Western countries that initially supported Syrian rebel fighter groups, are now remorseful,


    Or read/watch Al-Jazeera America.

    “If NATO or the UN wants to get involved,”


    Sorry, but are you guys aware the US practically runs NATO? And the UN has 5 members on its Permanent Security Council with veto powers, one of which is …Russia?…and the USA.


    I’m getting the impression Americans are a rather forgetful lot. You believe in your own window dressing.

    Good analogy.

    replied to the questions: “Where’s the UN? Where’s NATO?” with:
    “Waiting, as usual, for the US to play the world’s policeman.”


    Ah, no. Read above.
    The USA, btw, is a founding member of NATO. It kinda runs that show, too. (so why ask"where’s NATO?". Americans must be a forgetful lot.

    asked:“Where’s the UN?
    Russia is part of the Permanent Security Council.
    With veto powers.


    You asked: ”Where’s NATO?“
    Ukraine is not a NATO member.


    You asked: ”Why is this a US issue?"

    The USA & the UK signed the Budapest Memorandum

    Cameron is wagging his finger.


    You asked: “Why should we send warplanes to get shot down over there?”
    …and Obama replied no military intervention


    “We are not taking military action to solve the Ukrainian problem,” he said. “It is very important to understand that a military solution to this problem is not going to be forthcoming.”
