GREATEST WAR EVER:

Turkish artillery, U.S.-led coalition jets pound Islamic State in Syria: sources (HUMEYRA PAMUK, 5/12/16, Reuters)

Turkish artillery pounded Islamic State targets in northern Syria overnight and the U.S.-led coalition carried out air strikes, killing 28 militants near a Turkish border town repeatedly hit by rocket fire, Turkish military sources said. [...]

NATO member Turkey was initially a reluctant partner in the U.S.-led coalition fighting Islamic State and faced criticism in the earlier stages of the Syrian war for failing to stop foreign fighters crossing its borders and joining the militant group.

But it has suffered several attacks blamed on the radical militant group, including two suicide bombings in Istanbul this year. 

The delusion that any of these states could choose not to fight ISIS is priceless.
