Bomb the wells: Syria is buying Islamic State oil

Here's another reason to bomb the ISIS-controlled oil wells--Syria is buying petroleum from the terrorists.

From the New York Post:
Islamic State militants are engaged in oil trading worth as much as $40 million a month with significant volumes sold to the government of President Bashar al-Assad and some finding its way across the border into Turkey, senior U.S. Treasury official Adam Szubin said on Thursday.

"ISIL is selling a great deal of oil to the Assad regime," Szubin, acting Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence with the U.S. Treasury, said at Chatham House in London.

"The two are trying to slaughter each other and they are still engaged in millions and millions of dollars of trade."
President Obama, who is possibly the only American who doesn't believe we are at war with ISIS, refuses to bomb the ISIS cash cow because he fears environmental damage.

War isn't pretty, Dear Leader.
