    The only way to stop ISIS is to cut off the millions they make every day on oil they sell on the black market.

    i remember the first gulf war when those bastards lit up some oil fields. they burned for a long time. i kind of agree with not hitting the working wells. there has to be a better way. maybe hit the area with an EMP and knock out the equipment? repeat as required.

    think of an oil field pumping out thick black smoke for years. other than it would drive the greenies insane (might be fun), i think it would be best to avoid this. yeah, yeah, one volcano will equal blah, blah, blah...

    it's a bad idea but maybe the only one that will work. :dontknow:

    who's buying the oil?
    who's banking the cash from it?

    find them and put the screws to them

    no one should be surprised.....we have a president who's a pussy. he buys into the george soros/algore bullshit that the environment/global warming come first. obama isn't serious about destroying ISIS. his muslim buddies come first...beyond the safety of america.

    Barry also doesn't allow bombing oil trucks because he doesn't want to kill the "innocent civilian" drivers.

    Obama really isn't that serious about taking out ISIS. Never has been. There is more at play in that part of the world than is being told to the public.

    U.S.-led forces want to avoid hitting the oil installations hard because it could hurt civilians more than the militants and could radicalize the local population, analysts say.

    Most of the oil is bought by local traders and covers the domestic needs of rebel-held areas in northern Syria. But some low-quality crude has been smuggled to Turkey where prices of over $350 a barrel, three times the local rate, have nurtured a lucrative cross-border trade.

    "Our options are limited unless you hit the wells - but it does not just hit Islamic State, it hits the entire population and that is not something that the U.S. can do very easily," said Andrew Tabler, a senior fellow at the U.S.-based Washington Institute, who focuses on Syria.

    "It's a good example of the constraints of trying to bomb your way out of it."

    A tactical nuclear missile strike would solve both sides of the issue.
