in response to reader comment: How Will Russia Respond

I am not being disingenuous. The Turks are standing by, allowing Kobane to be destroyed. They are not afraid of the Russians, who would not stand up to Turkey if the latter decided to honor its commitment to the Coalition and attack ISIS. The Chinese, moreover, are not even involved.

One of us may be disingenuous here, but it isn't me.
