Because they are all too busy slaughtering their own innocents
So true of China
however, the Chinese are extremely xenophobic, if it doesn't affect the Chinese people, they could really care less, and certainly won't spend time or
resources on non-Chinese
Russia will only get involved if it affects them as well.
But the statement made earlier that everyone in the world thinks:
The US will do it. That is the job of the US.
Is probably the real reason.
The US is the world's policeman, even as we have shrunken our armed forces to so low that
morale in the Armed forces is at an all time low,
suicide of American forces is at an all time high,
PTSD is the fate of nearly everyone who joins the military now.
The US are fools to do all this alone.
Until the US has the balls to stand up and say -
in a "save the people scenario" we won't use military force
without at least a matching number of international forces, and sticks to it.
Then the USA needs to get out of the policeman business.
Humanitarian food and water drops - absolutely -
surround the refugees so they are protected (a defensive security only) - yes -
start bombing Iraq - again - no
