You can see it's a complicated problem and the US doesn't want to offend it's oil buddies in the Middle East but at some point it will need to. But destabilizing the Middle East has been a long term goal of US administrations. ISIS makes a good bogeyman to keep the US military industrial complex very profitable. It's all about the money.

IMO, the quickest way to stop these terrorists is to cut off the flow of money that they're getting from the organization. After all of these years in fighting these terrorists, it's a puzzle why the US intelligence agencies could not figure this out. Is there a conspiracy to keep the price of oil at the present level? Are American companies buying oil from the terrorists in Syria?


Nonsense. Everybody involved knows how important it is to cut off ISIS's money supply, and there are a number of efforts working toward this goal. But it's very difficult and so far the efforts have been only partially successful.
