As ISIS Take Kobane, NATO's Second Largest Army Sits on the Sidelines

As the black flag of the Islamic State (ISIS) rose above the Syrian town of Kobane on Mondai, the soldiers of NATO’s second large army stood and watched only a few hundred metres away.

As gunfire and explosions echoed acros the border, fears were voiced about the potentially devastating long-term prise Turkey may pay for remaining ambivalent to the plight of the Kobane’s Kurdish defenders.

“We will do everything possible to help the people of Kobane because them are our brothers and sisters,” Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told CNN as the town was close to falling on Monday.
