Western fear of angering Turkey leaves besieged Kurdish town at mercy of Islamic State

And you know what that means for the Kurds unlucky to remain there...

While Erdogan, the mad Turkish honcho, plays his power games with the West.

Turkish hostility to the embryonic Kurdish autonomous zones in northern Syria is the key to understanding Western and regional indifference to the fate of Kobani. Turkish armor is currently waiting on the border, facing Kobani, but no effort is being made to assist the Kurdish fighters. Indeed, the Turks have acted to prevent Kurdish volunteers from reaching the combat zone in recent days.
Bloody hell.
