Turkey borders on Syria and most Turkish people living on the border can daily listen to the sounds of war. Just about every day dozens of people walk through Turkey on there way to join ISIS or some other group in Syria while Turkish officials simply ignore this group. The government of President Recep Erdogan believes the most important issue in the Middle East is the desire of Kurds to have their own nation. At this point, Kurds in northern Iraq and parts of Syria have carved out a Kurdish state which is capable of handling ISIS. Erdogan would rather have ISIS on his border than a Kurdish state.
However, ISIS agents have decided to send suicide bombers into Turkey. Last week a suicide bomber murdered twenty young Turkish students and wounded dozens more. FINALLY, Erdogan is awakening to reality. ISIS is the most important threat to his nation. Turkish jets FINALLY went not action and bombed ISIS forces. Heck, he is now even going to allow US planes to fly from Turkey. Now,if Turkish officials at airports would arrest those young jihadists, then ISIS will suffer.
