Have I just personally changed the course of the Syrian war???

On Nov. 3 I wrote:

Mr. Obama,

Oil wells have addresses.

Are you still pretending to fight ISIS, when you could, on any day, and at any time, have simply bombed the Islamic State oil wells and put them out of commission?

Today the NY Times says that Obama’s planes are bombing oil fields now, and this time they really mean it. (So they claim. I remain skeptical.)

U.S. Steps Up Its Attacks on ISIS-Controlled Oil Fields in Syria

Coincidence?

Really?

Or are some glaring frauds too smelly to continue once the public gets a whiff of how ridiculous they are?

NYT:

The goal of the operation over the next several weeks is to cripple eight major oil fields, about two-thirds of the refineries and other oil-production sites controlled by the Islamic State, also called ISIS or ISIL.

“We intend to shut it all down,” Col. Steven H. Warren, a military spokesman in Baghdad, said in an email on Thursday [yesterday].

So it’s taken over a year to get around to allowing the Air Force to degrade the ISIS money supply. Nothing fishy there, right?

PS

Two more glaring issues:

  1. The “next several weeks” tells you how long it would have taken in the first place. What have they been doing all this time?
  2. They are stopping at “two-thirds of the refineries and other oil-production sites controlled by the Islamic State.” Why 2/3? They want to retain an engine to keep it going indefinitely.
PPS.

Stephen Lendman speculates:

Attacking ISIS held Syrian oil fields now appears part of a plan to prevent their use by Damascus if its army regains control. They’ve been protected to provide income for America’s proxy terrorist foot soldiers.

 Washington wants Assad deprived of an important revenue source. If his forces recapture ISIS held oil fields and facilities, they’ll likely find them turned to rubble.

Mr. Obama,

Oil wells have addresses.

Are you still pretending to fight ISIS, when you could, on any day, and at any time, have simply bombed the Islamic State oil wells and put them out of commission?

The NY Times claimed, in sycophantic fashion, that you are “struggling” on this question. I don’t personally believe that.

Struggling to Starve ISIS of Oil Revenue, U.S. Seeks Assistance From Turkey

“WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is struggling to cut off the millions of dollars in oil revenue that has made the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria one of the wealthiest terror groups in history, but so far has been unable to persuade Turkey, the NATO ally where much of the oil is traded on the black market, to crack down on an extensive sales network.”

The Times never once mentions the oil wells.

This is an oil well:

Now it may be above the pay grade of the media whores at the NY Times to put the two together. But it is certainly not beyond the planning of people in your own Pentagon. No. It’s probably the very first thing they suggested the moment the problem became known. They are quite famous for blowing shit up wherever they go.

So, Mr. Obama, the real question is: WHY ARE YOU PROTECTING THE ISIS OIL WELLS FROM MILITARY ATTACK?

YOU.

THE PRESIDENT.

THE BUCK STOPS … WHERE?
