The Kurds are currently the only forces effectively fighting ISIS on the ground in Syria but, so far, they have been abandoned by the world powers.

You hit the nail on the head. The Kurds have always been betrayed by the West and the US and minorities, religious and ethnic, should not trust neither the West nor the US

As for Turkey and Da'ish I suspect that Erdogan is very concerned about the fact that Turkey shares a border with a terrorist entity now the question is would he go after Da'ish or not? I really do not know but I suspect, and like cancer, Turkey will be next on the agenda of Da'ish and I will have no mercy for Turkey or Erdogan
