    So NATO may not intervene and attack ISIS, simply because Iran has come to the aid of Malaki and the Shiite majority government by sending boots on the ground to Baghdad. 

    Iran...

    This is a proxy war between Sunni & Shiite Muslims. It seems natural for Iran to be involved.

    Public opinion was calling for sanctions and bombs against the Syrian bad guys. Still does, except that now they aren't the same bad guys.

    And it looks like we'll get to cheer for Iran doing the dirty work in Iraq while the west provides air support. Of course it's the same Iran that was allegedly helping insurgents against UN troops, and making nuclear bombs to pave Israel.

    In the meanwhile, the aftermath of that Arab Spring we were so happy to have fueled (bombs included), looks more and more like a serious sh*tstorm.

    I don't expect the west to learn wisdom, nor patience. But at least we should learn to wait slower.

    ... and neither side is really a friend of the west.
