The oil pipelines are Syrian infrastructure. And ISIS provides the pretext needed to destroy Syrian and Iraqi infrastructure. I have discussed this very topic on a number of previous ocassions!
-The US is considering bombing pipelines in Syria
-The $2m-a-day (£1.24m) that the extremist group is believed to be making
from the sale of fuel is one of the US' "principal concerns" and "air
strikes are a viable option”,
The US 'believes' that ISIS is making money from the sale of fuel. Like believing in Santa Clause, the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny.
Therefore- bomb Syrian infrastructure.
-The American-led coalition has already carried out a limited number of air strikes on small-scale refineries.
Now bomb pipelines.
This is a war on Syria. This is the war on Syria.
I'm curious- the pipelines set to be bombed would these be the ones for the derogatorily named "arab pipeline". A pipeline that may be in the process of being rerouted to more acceptable nations.
The Arab pipeline was first mentioned in this post in 2011: Assad's "Four Seas Strategy" Damascus converges with China
Most recent mention of the pipeline was just a month back: Remember " War against Iraq, Syria & Iran? " ISIS wants Saudi Arabia?
