    I didn't realize Turkey is the most direct route to Europe for Syrians until I looked at a map.

    I can understand wanting to protect your border, but Turkey isn't under attack, so this is an overreaction at least, a sure sign of collusion with Isis at worst. Coupled with trying to prevent Syrians from fleeing Isis and the daily bombings, I'd say Turkey is anti-Syria, and probably looking for some scraps after Assad is taken out.

    That these days is commonly referred to as isolationist in a globalized world, I don't care about the term. And there are plenty who argue you cannot look over a humanitarian crisis or genocide happening in any region. I tend to agree with not to meddle, but it is an interesting discussion and cannot be easily dismissed.

    I don't agree with measuring isolationism by passive actions like not interfering. I think trade embargo's are a much better example since they are proactive, and hostile, creating tension, and a lack of relations(see US/Cuba).
    As far as stepping in for cases like genocide, I'd say at a private level that sounds fine, but at a national level, almost never. The amount of cultural/historical knowledge needed before getting involved in a situation in another country is quite extensive. It's better to let the bad guys win by non-action, then inadvertently helping them win by mis-informed action.

    As far as border security, before we spend money on fences and guards, we should cut-off all aid to illegals, and prosecute companies that hire them. If they don't have free housing/aid/healthcare, and employers are afraid of getting fined/imprisoned, so no jobs, what's their incentive to be here? If their country is so bad they still want to come, they should probably be seeking asylum when they get here, a legitimate reason for crossing illegally.

    The West is trying to work with the least worst crazy Sunnis in the Region. We are targeting ISIS with our bombings while Russia is bombing our trained allies to keep Assad in power.

    This is exactly what I'm talking about. You know very clearly who Russia is helping, but not who the US/France is helping...

    Maybe you should try actually talking to a Syrian to find out how they view things. I've seen a few interviews, and they were all pretty well off before US/France/England/Etc. started destabilizing their country and bombing their homes.

    I guess you view Iraq as a giant success right? We HELPED lots of people their using the same techniques.
