Is the US Buying Oil from ISIS in Syria?
Over the past few months we’ve seen a substantial cut in gas prices. This has left a lot of people wondering if the US is getting oil from ISIS oil fields. In reality we don’t know if we are or not. Upfront however we are fighting them internationally threatening sanctions on anyone who buys or sells ISIS oil. Is it doing any good though?
It’s hard to know, ISIS may be selling oil under the table and it may come over here to America. What is known is that ISIS has gained control of several oil fields. They are also highly organized and claim to make several million a day. The fact of the matter is many oil producers may be donating money to these groups. However it’s nearly impossible to tell if oil is coming from ISIS yet it’s very possible and highly likely that somewhere down the line we are receiving oil from them. It should be known though that most oil comes from foreign countries that are in turmoil. This is due to poor legislation, and the lack of any watchdog groups on the export of foreign oil.
It doesn’t matter when or where we buy oil at this point in time, it’s normally funding deceptive means of economic manipulation. It is though nearly impossible to end dependence on oil right now. Every person who try’s to help create renewable energy helps fight back against terrorism and inequality. Once the whole world is run on renewable energy, war will be less impacted by those seeking financial gain. Even those people will need to be on a vigilant look out for corrupt people, who wish to use renewable energy to harm others for personal gain.
