Escalation is Here
from The Wealth Watchman:
In the roughly 9 weeks that Russia has been pulverizing ISIS/Daesh/Al-Qaeda/Al-Nusra into tiny bits, so much good has been accomplished already. Russian air support has done such a thorough job of smashing ISIS’s supply lines, IED factories, munitions depots, & infrastructure…that Assad’s Syrian Army(plus Hezbollah) had made significant territorial gains in just weeks. In fact they’re now threatening to retake Aleppo itself! Let’s be clear: when Assad takes back Aleppo, the country will be, for all intents and purposes, firmly under his control again.
For Putin, that wasn’t enough though. He and the Kremlin had known for years who really controlled ISIS, and more importantly how they were funding that organization, and he decided the time was finally right to strike at the heart of their operations in Syria, once and for all.
Putin hits ISIS where it hurts: Russia hits more than 200 targets in 24 hours as Moscow aims to cut off jihadists’ income by taking out refinery and oil trucks
Yes, the Russian Air Force finally launched aggressive strikes against enormous convoys of ISIS oil trucks, as well as several oil refineries used to convert the raw crude into usable product. They launched the attacks without warning, and often, in the middle of the night. Even the drivers were all cooked inside the trucks they drove.
Putin and Russia understand the ruthless nature of ISIS and those who aid them, and have decided there will be no quarter for anyone helping or fighting for their terrorist enclave.
Now, brothers, in case you were wondering:
“If hitting ISIS oil operations and their war chest was so easy….why the hell didn’t the US Air Force do this at the very beginning?”
Well, let me help you there. Barack’s lapdog told those listening, when asked the same question, that the reason the US never went after ISIS oil refineries was due to environmental concerns! Truly, he said these utterly moronic words!
DC actually expects us to sit with a straight face, and believe them when they say:
“We really wanted to strike ISIS oil revenues, honest, but ‘muh environment’!”
