The Turks have been fighting the Kurds for decades. They are not going to defend them. The only way the Turks will roll is if the US would agree to also take out Assad. That has the support of the Turks and the Arab states and if the US would agree to after Assad along with ISIS Turkey would very likey send forces into Syria.

Turkish tanks along the Syrian border
Yea, if only the Kurds could get some Tank support for instance.
But hey,, an armchair general from any Video Game out there would be thinking,,
"hey i know ill send in my tanks for support"
kinda a no brainer.
But carry on General.Who ever u are.
of the Coalition.
A Nato country.
Well at least there not a U.N country.
Maybe there a sunni country supporting othe sunni's like ISIS.
Because none of the above countries that you mentioned are really Arabs,they might speak Arabic but their history and race is far from Arabs,with the exception of Saudi Arabia which is helping and supporting ISIS to confront all the rest of really none Arabic nations surrounding them.Saudis think those countries specially Iran are a big threat to their security and interests in the region...What they really do not know is that they have helped to create a monster that will eat them alive along with some other regimes and perhaps Israel as well.

How can Saudi, Egypt, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Oman, Iraq etc...just sit by and let ISIS do this to other Arabs? Why must the West come in and save the day? I don't understand why Iraq's wont fight? They all just sheepishly get herded off to their death and none of them fight back? Yes I know this time it's the "Kurds" but it seems no Arabs are willing to save their brothers. Why is this? Are they just pacifists or is it ok to kill and murder in Arab society?
Where the heck are the Arab Boots on the ground?
(Reuters) - Thousands of people "will most likely be massacred" if Kobani falls to Islamic State fighters, a U.N. envoy said on Friday, as militants fought deeper into the besieged Syrian Kurdish town in full view of Turkish tanks that have done nothing to intervene.
"But the jets would hit a kilometre or two away from the target," he told us, throwing his hands up in disbelief"
