This is coolbert:
Within the context of a previous blog entry, denying the Islamic State revenue and funding much more difficult than what might be assumed.
From USA Today World:
"U.S. rejects Russian claim of Turkish ties to Islamic State"
"U.S. officials dismissed Russian allegation . . . that Turkey's president profited from oil trading with the Islamic State."
According to the Russian Deputy Defense Minister Antonov:
"Turkey is the main destination for the oil stolen from its legitimate owners, which are Syria and Iraq.
"oil is transported to Turkey in industrial quantities along the 'rolling pipelines' made up of thousands of tanker trucks'".
Even the destruction of a hundred or more tanker trunks not a major concern to ISIL. Plenty more where those came from?
The beat goes on almost without amelioration? And will continue to do so! Nobody ever said this was going to be easy!
