Do you think that Turkey is not doing enough to secure their border with Syria and to stop people traveling from western countries to enter Syria to join ISIS? I have seen on the news that a lot of people who left home wanting to join ISIS did so via Turkey.

The Turkey-Syria border is 500 miles long. But that's not all — "Turkey's frontier with Syria is mountainous."

To secure such a border therefore would be very difficult. So if the West wants Turkey's borders secured they shouldn't just talk. Timely intelligence and money. A lot of it, will get the job done.
