Because, unlike the stupid US government, China doesn't feel the need to appoint themselves as the world savior that nobody wants. China has their own Muslim problem to deal with, why would they care about ISIS?

If I knew the answer I wouldn't have asked.
I disagree about the US government being stupid though.

No, the US government is stupid. Their foreign policy is stupid. We are the world savior that, literally, nobody wants.

Right. Like (or anybody on C-D) has the ultimate final say on all U.S. government policy. Moving on.

Yes.

You bomb all the countries you don't like, caused resentment, extremism and terrorism as revenge, and then act as if it is those countries which are threatening American cities and lives.

How funny is that? I can attack you, but if you attack me, that's terrorism. Even the 911 is self-inflicted.

whoever allows American troops to be stationed on their land should just be part of America and stop pretending to be independent countries. How pathetic.

Get off your moral highhorse already. You obviously don't know the whole story about ISIS. The whole thing is about nothing but America/the west wanting to get rid of the shias and keeping their sunni puppet regimes in the middle east. Why doesn't Obama want to remove the Saudi Arabian dictators who are as bad as Saddam and give the people democracy?

China only cares about its own growth. It doesn't pretend to be the saint the US always tries to play, when in fact everything the US does is not about removing the evil and protecting the innocent, but about planting puppets in countries where it considers strategically important.

Plenty of violence and killing happens in Africa. Plenty of dictatorship exists in America's Arab allies. Washington doesn't care. It only meddles when there is some good for itself. China is not stupid enough to spend billions to meddle other countries' business.

So countries like Germany are not independent? I think you are thinking about other countries' relations in terms of China's traditional Empire-Tribute mindset, that one country must be subject to the will of another. America and Federal Republic of Germany have a treaty alliance in place even before the PRC was ever born. A treaty alliance does not make Germans more or less equal to your average American.
