Vanity: Who is funding ISIS?

Posted on 06/30/2014 2:29:43 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Question for all you Freepers out there?

I don't believe for one second this rag tag bunch of Muslim losers could pull this off without some SERIOUS financial help.

We're talking another nation has to be behind this.

Who is pulling the strings?

Is is the Saudi's? Obama? Iran? Soros?

Someone is putting some serious financial backing to these guys. For them to be able to easily overrun towns, take them over and move on to the next town.

bump!

Obama gave them weapons.

But there is more than just that. They are getting money from somewhere.

You can bet.. Aid money we send to one of the flea ridden foreign countries is being funneled straight to ISIS.

I doubt it’s the Saudi’s because ISIS is threatening Mecca and the Kaaba. I doubt that it’s Iran because ISIS is Sunni. Besides the obama administration I don’t know who else is helping these dirtbags.

Someone is giving them serious financial backing.

There is no way these guys could do this on their own.

Someone is giving them financial backing and organizing them.

Well they got nearly a half billion dollars from the bank in Iraq not to mention billions in American military hardware that we left to the Iraqis. Plus whatever help Obama has given them for fighting Assad.

Now they’re charging taxes.

I read it was Billion with a B.

But that was AFTER their initial assault.

Well since they knocked over a bank and stole millions I guess they’re self funded.

Yes but that was after their initial assault.

And on top of that.. someone is organizing them.

These guys may wear ISIS uniforms. But they are bought and paid for by another nation I would bet.

From what I have read, ISIS is mostly self-funded, through drug trafficking, theft, smuggling, extortion, and robbery.

Nope. Millions. Not Billions. Another source said is was 250 million Euros.

Really, in the grand scheme of things, not much.

Iran may be SHITTE and Iran may be Sunni.. but that doesn’t mean Iran isn’t behind this.

I wouldn’t put it past Iran to do this at all.. so they can swoop in and take over the country. Which they have been wanting to do for years.

Vanity: Who is funding ISIS?

Iran.
Pakistan.
Syria.
Egypt.
Turkey.
Yemen.
United Arab Emirates.
Kuwait.
The United States. Arming both sides inevitably has the absolute worst result.

And last but foremost, Saudi Arabia, with money laundered through that (Saudi?) muslim "Irish citizen" who funded the banning of the book, Alms for Jihad, which is widely available in PDF format...

Exactly.

These are bought and paid for soldiers of another nation.

That nation will take the oil, etc from Iraq and use it for their benefit.

Nothing to pull off. The Government troops pretty much pulled out as soon as they were attacked and the attackers have sympathizers within the population ISIS has access to government funding from several states. Now they have access to the tons of weapons and materials we left behind. They all hate us, so them killing each other off does not really seem to be a bad thing.........

When they get big enough, they no longer need outside help. Look at what broke ass Germany did in WWII by looting Europe.

You’ve got that right. Organizing a bunch of ADHD goat-fockers must be like herding cats!

It helps GREATLY that they’re stupid and easily brainwashed.

It doesn’t seem like a bad thing on the surface.

Just sucks that we spent American lives, money and our treasure on this place and now it has fallen.

Sucks. And I feel especially bad for the military that worked years over there.

I am sure they made friends whom have now been slaughtered.

Well they’ll have to sell the oil someplace. Iran imports fuel since they don’t refine oil. Pretty much all oil is exported.

>For them to be able to easily overrun towns, take them over and move on to the next town.<

.
I heard that many of the Iraqi Sunnis deserted and joined ISIS and that the Shia were slaughtered?

These acts of terror only weakened the resistance in subsequent towns until it became a rout for the Iraqi army.

It is expected that, now that ISIS has reached Shia area, the latter will put up a more serious fight especially now that they will receive help from Iran. They will have to put up resistance in order to survive.

There is no room in ISIS for the Shiites.

When ISIS first did their maniac rogue terrorist thing, they already had a power base in Syria and some members had training, equipment, and financing from Obama and McCain doing their thing identifying the freedom fighters who promised to fight our battles. There were some reports that they're very wealthy now, with oil revenus from some drilling operations they took over, the $400 million or so they took from a Mosul bank and possibly funding from our friends the Saudis.

The whole thing is frightening. It's disturbing that every country that considers itself to be civilized hasn't dropped their differences for awhile and worked together to annihilate them. Take out a map. If they get access to the Med, there's no stopping ISIS.

What will Iran do with oil? They export oil and import gasoline and diesel fuel, they have no refineries. Iraq has some though. Maybe that’s why Iran wants to take over Iraq.

Let’s see. ISIL is an international Sunni fighting force trying to establish an Arabic speaking Sunni confederation composed of large parts of Syria and Iraq to counter Iran. Hugely expensive endeavor to recruit, train, equip, deploy and pay all those fighters. If they were successful the prime beneficiary would be the Saudis. The Saudis fear Iran. It may sound silly to most Americans but when the mullahs preach that the Saudi royals are decadent and not fit custodians of the Muslim sacred sites, it really frightens them. This is the same Saudi Arabia that 15 of the 9/11 terrorists called home and the same Saudi government that funds the Wahhabi. Fairly obvious the Saudis are funding ISIL.
Amusing that you have the insight to pose this important question on a forum like FR. Funny that our crack White House and State Department journalists don’t ask.
