One of ISIL’s Biggest Strengths is Also its Biggest Weakness

We’ve heard a lot of back and forth rhetoric concerning the radical Islamic terrorist organization known as ISIS or ISIL, and rightfully so. This is a group that makes al-Qaeda look like a bunch of amateurs. They’re organized, well funded, armed and extremely motivated. Hell, they’ve seized oil fields and are actually selling oil. They’re probably the first terrorist group that might actually supersede being simply known as a “terrorist organization.”

And while one of their “strengths” is the fact that they’re a fairly well organized group that’s trying to establish an actual Islamic state – that’s also one of their biggest weaknesses.

You see, there are consequences to being organized. It provides targets and that creates weakness.

Ironically the lack of organization is what has made al-Qaeda difficult to defeat. Sure, they have some kind of organization, but it’s not anything on the level that ISIL has.

As they grow and establish more organization while trying to form this caliphate, they’re actually weakening themselves by having something to lose. It’s much easier to target an organized army than it is a handful of terror cells sprinkled around the globe.

It’s kind of like the cliché saying that the most dangerous person is someone with nothing to lose. Al-Qaeda is that group. Kill a few of their leaders, others just spring up to take their place. You can’t defeat al-Qaeda because there’s really nothing to “defeat.” Sure, you can weaken them, but they’ll never be truly “defeated.” Because, again, what are you defeating?

It’s not like WWII and Nazi Germany where the death of Hitler more or less meant the end of the war. We killed Osama bin Ladin, but that didn’t mean the fighting against al-Qaeda was over.

But that’s not the case with ISIL. They’re building themselves as a top to bottom militant group with the clear goal of establishing a radical Islamic-run state. They have “assets.” And by assets I mean clearly established targets. ISIL has something to lose, because they have an organized goal. And to achieve that goal they’ll have to “play by the rules” to some aspect. By that I mean they need funding, which means that funding can be targeted. They need an organized military, which is another clearly defined target. They need to start trying to establish an economy of some sort, which also opens them up for further weakness.

And like with most power hungry groups, the moment ISIL starts to weaken, the leadership structure will quickly begin to crumble. You’ll see dissension, splintering factions and infighting with the group.

For an organization like al-Qaeda who rely on single acts of terror, it only takes a handful of terrorists to be successful in killing hundreds or thousands of people. To them, that’s a success. They’re not really concerned with how many attacks are successful, as long as some of them are.

But for ISIL, it’s not about a random terror attack here and there. They have a rather lofty goal. And to achieve that goal, they have to set up some kind of a government which requires structure. And the more they try to build this caliphate, the more open they make themselves to targeted attacks on their various points of organizational infrastructure.

That’s why in the end, I believe one of ISIL’s biggest strengths is ultimately going to be one of their biggest weaknesses.

    Imagine the hot footing and hip hopping avoidance dancing from Republicans when the truth comes out about the origins of ISIS. KOCH BRO CASH laundered through neocon PACs to make the boy in the White House look bad before an election.
    That’s a more credible theory than Obama’s a Muslim Brotherhood agent.

    AND it explains HOW they are selling oil on the spot market. WHO is buying ISIS OIL?
    FOLLOW THE MONEY TO OKLAHOMA!

    • Nemisis

      The logical conclusion to who is buying the oil is Syria or Turkey or Iraq. Just having oil is not enough you have to transport that oil.
      That oil is going through pipelines or into trucks or ships.
      It is very unlikely that a truck can make it from Levant to Oklahoma.
      Knowing that, that does not exclude the possibility that there is a holding company that could be purchasing that oil.
      Still transport is the problem. Oil in that quantity would be fairly easy to spot. Tanker ships, truck convoys, random pipeline appearing, 100k people shlepping barrels etc.

      If ISIL is actually selling:
      A port facility would be needed for shipping and ISIL lacks that the only option left is ground transport and leave 3 possible customers regardless of where the money comes from.

      • Stephen Barlow

        All three have unlimited supplies. Only Reds would buy what they get for FREE!

      • Nemisis

        Reds. Implying Republicans or Communists, or a group of Bostonians?

        Okay, lemme try to put it so even you can understand.

        Turkey, or people in Turkey could buy the oil.
        Syria, or people in Syria could buy the oil.
        Iraq, or people in Iraq could buy the oil.
        However there are not a lot of people with 100 million laying around, and if used to purchase a 100 million worth of black market oil, they would then need a place to store it.
        A nation with it’s own bottomless well needs to spend money to pull it from the ground, put it in storage and then ship it.
        The money saved from not pulling it from the ground is significant. The amount of oil purchased for $100 million on the black market would be a lot more in quantity than the same amount money could purchase on the world market. The purchaser would then sell the illegal oil as legal oil on the world market making a profit.
        Capitalism at it’s best.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Nice hop scotch exhibition there. Try both first 2 out of 3.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I so regret discussions with fools.

      • Nemisis

        Weird cuz I bet you talk to yourself a lot.

        Why don’t you just tell us, of fount of wisdom.
        How do the Koch Brothers get said oil from ISIL? Any ideas to back your tinfoil hat theory?

      • poppaDavid

        http colon slash slash rojavareport dot wordpress dot com slash 2014 slash 09 slash 15 slash the-isis-ankara-oil-pipeline slash covers the story.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Turkish Lira is $0.44 so 1.25 = 55 cents a litre. ISIS refining oil since March is not verified by ANYONE.

        A BBL is 42 gallons Not 70 litres. SOMANYHOLES IN THIS GARBAGE.

      • Nemisis

        The actual numbers are closer to 50k-60,000 bbl per day.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Not according to YOUR DEVOTED FAN David.

        Where did your corruptedcorrupted #s come from jerkweasel?

      • Nemisis

        1 bbl = 42 gal = 158.99 liters.
        1 gal = 3.79 liter
        1 turk lira = $0.44
        yesterday’s closing price for a bbl of crude was USD $97.00 .or turkish lira 219.22 (rounded)

        a single litre of crude costs TL 1.38 (rounded) or USD $0.61 (rounded) per litre or $5.23 (rounded) per gallon.

        Those numbers are based on the legit market.

        Where did you get your numbers?

      • Stephen Barlow

        PoppaDavid posted a garbage linklink supporting your nonsense. It’s three posts up page.

        I stopped wasting time on you before my last ball shave. Talking to you is like sniffing glue. Mega bad choice all around.

        HAPPY WHACKING jackwagon

      • Nemisis

        So what your doing now is critical to your time management?
        I read the article posted by PoppaDavid.
        I was mildly surprised that there was even an article that supported my theory. The article was prior to any of my posts on this subject. That’s not the point here. The point is I contended that the logical purchasers of the oil would be limited to the region.

        This is where you crapped your mind trying to convince the at home players that the Koch bros. and the GOP are behind the nefarious purchases.
        You post no evidence other than “They built a pipeline to a storage hub and they own tankers. They are a petroleum entity and that is simply circumstance. It is not evidence to support your claim.

        I have given you ample opportunity to reasonably provide proof to your claim and you have not.

        In the matter of the Koch bros and the GOP I would enjoy nothing more than to have these two groups taken to task for criminal activity, in fact I would not limit the prosecution to just GOP or Brothers Koch.
        The price fixing and market manipulation exorcised by the Koch’s and banks because the regulations were lifted (GOP) that prevented it. (ref: Contango.)
        Currently there is a tanker in the Gulf (ours) that is being prevented from offloading it’s cargo. It is a tanker with oil from Kurdiastan. That is not proof for you statement, but it does lend credibility.
        Not once did you mention this.

      • Stephen Barlow

        In doing so I provided MORE EVIDENCE than you.
        Happy jacking WHACKJOB.

      • Nemisis

        Can you cite your evidence. Could anyone chime in here with Barlow’s evidence.

      • Stephen Barlow

        WHER’S YOURS?

      • Stephen Barlow

        When I see any from you that are not as fabricated as the WMD intel.

      • Nemisis

        I have cite two sources of supportive information had external corroborative sources interjected (early on) by someone you claim is a fan of mine. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t.
        No matter how much evidence is given to support my statement you will not accept it and no matter how many times asked for supportive evidence to your statement you will not provide any. That is the tactic of the conservative t-party bias and you seem to have learned that well.

        Anyone who has read my comments regardless of if they liked them or not should be clear on one thing.
        It is fairly clear that I am not GOP.

        With all the red herring arguments you postulate you could feed the starving….if they had substance.

      • Stephen Barlow

        When you post a link Jim, I’ll try not to laugh too loud.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Breitfart is not credible. They can’t even do the math.

      • Nemisis

        You are like a blind dog chasing it’s own tail.

      • Stephen Barlow

        But unlike you I can find My own ass in the dark. YOU can’t find it in a mirrored room with the lights on!

      • Fabricated by whom? You liberal dirtbag.There is no doubt that … Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies.”

        Letter to President Bush, Signed by:

        — Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

        “We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them.”

        — Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

        “We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country.”

        — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

        “Iraq’s search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power.”

        — Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

        “We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction.”

        — Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

        “The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons…”

        — Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

        “I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force — if necessary — to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security.”

        — Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

        “There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years … We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction.”

        — Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

        “He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do”

        — Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

        “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members … It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons.”

        — Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

      • Stephen Barlow

        And NONE of any of those quotes makes “THIRTY THOUSAND WMDs* any less of a murderous, treasonous LIE.

      • What did Saddam Hussein kill 5,000 Kurds with? What did he use on the Iranians in the `1980-1988 war. WMDs. And what did Assad use to kill his own people? We know Saddam dumped weapons and on neighboring countries. He even sent his air force to Iran during the 1st war and he didn’t get them back. No doubt WMDs went to Syria. Navy SEALs in Iraq said they found WMDs. Google it up loser. Are you that gay that you love Saddam Husseins’ gay 70s mustache you liberal queer.

      • Nemisis

        Your equation:(corrected)
        .061×3.78=2.30

        The price per litre in USD is $0.61
        A gallon would then be 3.79 litres.
        The proper equation would be $0.61 x 3.79=$2.31
        $2.31 USD = 5.23 Turkish Lira.

        Seriously dude “YOUR BAD MATH” nice fail. again.

      • Stephen Barlow

        The Koch’s have a new pipeline to Cushing OK from the Gulf. Thousands or rail cars as well as cash to hire trucks. Hell!!! They got their own ducking tankers!!

        Pakistan, Japan (& most Asian nations INCLUDING CHINA…) Portugal would buy $30/bbl oil on the KOCH market.

      • Nemisis

        And, yet they still lake a port facility or a private road from Syria to Oklahoma. Just saying they have that stuff is not proof.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I used your logic… Better than you did. You have less “proof” on what I call a non issue. I just find joy in feeding a fool his own turds..
        WITH A BUCKET LOADER.

      • Nemisis

        You’ve not used any logic. You’ve made claims, with no proof. That is not logic. That is just saying something. Anything in your case. I’m glad you snack well.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Happy jacking whack off.

      • Nemisis

        And there it is, the realization that you have lost so you turn to the only defense you have left. Maybe a little self-amusement is how you handle victory.
        I prefer to move on to the next thing.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Thanks for FINALLY CONCEDING.

      • Nemisis

        I concede, you have indeed truly lost.

      • Stephen Barlow

        They use the Kochbro network in Iran. Same way KOCHbros sell weapons to kill Americans.

      • Nemisis

        To be honest with this Cushing thing.
        Big deal, so do half a dozen other companies.
        Cushing is a storage hub. Koch Bros do oil stuff.
        Not limited to price fixing and insider trading.
        The problem with your entire argument is capacity, facility, and economics.

      • Stephen Barlow

        They OWN IT and HALF AMERICA’s minor pipelines. Makes perfectly logical on sense.

        The problem is wasting energy on a one track crack head.

        Happy whacking jack off

      • Nemisis

        I never said they didn’t and I don’t care to research the validity of that. It is off topic. Did you lose focus?
        You said the Koch bros and GOP are buying the oil from ISIL via a holding company and shipping here either via luggage or in 16 foot tanker trucks or a combination of both.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I could stoop to the level your at right now but you would just be empty handed as well as empty headed.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Hey WANKOMATIC

        SHOW YOUR PROOF.

      • Nemisis

        The contention in this thread is that you claim the Koch bros and the GOP are buying ISIL oil.
        The burden of proof falls to you.
        You have been given a few weeks to provide evidence and instead you have offered disparaging remarks towards myself, others who offer supportive statements to my conclusions, and my mother as proof of your claims. Meanwhile in the real world the nations bombing ISIL are targeting the ISIL oil production distribution points. You refuse to even google “Who is buying ISIL oil” I have googled “Koch Buying ISIL oil” there is no link between ISIL and Koch. and now you postulate that Koch bros are selling weapons to ISIL.

        Your comments are not intelligent, they lack substance, lack base in truth, are designed solely to mislead, show a complete lack of understanding of the topic, and meander aimlessly.
        When confronted you use vulgarities and attempt to shame in order to legitimize your pathetic cognitive process. Due to your utter lack of demonstrable intelligence I will no longer devote any more of my time to you.

        Hehehe.

      • Stephen Barlow

        No they don’ t. They RENT pipe transport and storage. That’s KochBro. You sure are an IGNORANT REDFOOLICAN.

      • Stephen Barlow

        A KOCH Bros holding company?

        7.5 gallons o 1 cubic foot.

        42 gallons fits in a set of luggage.

        500 bbls fits in a 16′ truck.

        The Koch’s don’t need a pipeline.

      • Nemisis

        You just said.

        A set of luggage holds as much oil as a 42 gallon barrel.

        A 16 foot tanker truck holds 21,000 gallons of oil.

        Lets examine your statement.

        I’ll be fair and us light sweet crude weight per gallon of 7.27 lbs. The luggage would weigh just over 305 lbs. Not including the empty tare weight.
        That comes to just over 6.05 gallons per bag.

        You would need 7 bags per barrel.

        That number of bags is going to cost you extra.
        Most flights that originate from outside the US have a weight limit for total checked baggage – a miserly 20kg/44lbs if you’re traveling in coach class, 30kg/66lbs for business class and 40kg/88lbs for first class. If your luggage weighs more than your allowance, you’ll be charged for each extra pound (or kilogram) at exorbitant rates – usually a percentage (about 1% – 2%) of the full fare per extra kg of weight, per flight. You’ve still got the price of the ticket, paying the mule, paying off the airport security to not check the bags, I’m positive crude oil is on the no fly list, and the cost of the crude. That’s a lot of mules.

        500 barrels comes to 21,000 gallons and weighs in at 152,670 pounds. I am also positive that that exceeds the weight limits for a 16′ tanker truck.
        Let’s assume your 16 foot tanker with 3 axles.

        The USDOT caps that limit by law to 48,000 pounds including the weight of the truck. or simply put a 16 foot tanker with the capacity to hold 152,670 pounds of anything can not legally be allowed on the road or by the laws of physics exist as it would need at least 9 axles to carry the weight and the average width of each axle is 3 feet, not including gaps for mechanical reasons, the 16′ truck would be 27 feet long minimum. and still not be legal to drive. A real tanker trailer that is 42′ long hold only 11,800 gallons. So your 16′ tanker must be using T.A.R.D.I.S. technology.

        A train tank car, the largest capacity I can find, is 31,000 gallons.

        Are you sure the Koch Bros aren’t using the rail system special built to transport 16’foot tanker trucks that are 27 feet long on the inside filled at the long term parking at Oklahoma Airport by mules who smuggled the oil in luggage.

        I can see where you would implicate the GOP into the formula now because only those guys can figure out how to make a profit from a complete loss.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Only your hallucinations mentioned air travel!!! I MADE A DIMENSIONAL COMPARISON!!!

        HAPPY JACKING WHACKADOODLE DANDY!

      • Nemisis

        Your correct, I assumed the luggage was for air travel. I forgot they probably used luxury liners, or maybe a tramp steamer…either way you said a “set of luggage” could hold a barrel of oil.
        Did you mean the standard 4 piece set or one giant ass barrel shaped steamer chest from the 1930’s?
        The fact remains that it would cost more to smuggle oil overseas in luggage of any type than simply putting it in a tanker. I got your dimensional comparison. I just question your sources.
        You still have your 16′ truck issues.
        No matter how big the tank on a 16′ truck could ever be it would never be allowed to travel down the road with 21,000 gallons of oil, because it would be 3 times the maximum weight allowed and that is just the load weight.
        I even gave you the only way to transport 21,000 gallons of oil on a “road”, a rail road.

        Face it. You’ve failed. No matter how bad I would really like to nail the Koch brothers for something. It’s just not going to be something fabricated.
        Get proof, provide proof, till then I will continue to tear your flimsy statements apart just like I do whenever someone lies.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Who said tanker? Not me.
        A moving van holds 50 cubic YARDS of luggage. Or elephant trunks. Volume is a constant
        A unit of measure.

        STROOOOOKE your STUPIDSTICK.

      • Nemisis

        Volume has little to do with weight.
        You said “16 foot truck” Are you suggesting that a converted uhaul is being used to move all that oil laden luggage?

      • Stephen Barlow

        Doesn’t need conversion.

      • Nemisis

        What doesn’t need conversion?

      • Stephen Barlow

        Do the math.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Why do facts and reality TERRIFY you REDS so severely?

      • Nemisis

        I fear nothing, except the GOP getting wins in Nov.

        I’m a White Sox fan. When have I ever said I liked the Reds? Oh…you think I’m GOP because I don’t like your “facts” about ISIL oil. Well that’s not to be unexpected.
        I guess.

        Provide something that supports your theory.
        Beyond evidence that the Koch Bros are assholes with a foot print in the petroleum industry. They were that before ISIL. They also are in the chicken industry, does that mean they paid Putin to ban US chicken?
        I think it is a stretch to conclude that ISIL oil is being bought and sold in the US. It is just not economical with the capacity that ISIL has and the transportation methods already proven do not support your claims.
        They do support my original statement that the ISIL oil is being bought and used in region.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I never said ANY of that. You ginned it all up in your little RED head. I just gave an alternative concept, reasonable doubt, for yir adamant in distance that a Breitbart common was credible

        You took the bait and greased your palm and married it. WHACKNUT

      • Stephen Barlow

        Then quit feeding their buttmonkeys
        With support for Breitbart propaganda

      • Nemisis

        Nope, I fear that there is a room with rubber mats on the wall and floor that is missing you very much.

      • ISIS is pissing all over Obama.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Too bad the RED HOUSE doesn’t think ISIS is important enough to discuss or vote on. Guess you love em cause they’re as cowardly as you.

        You gonna enlist? Did you ever even SERVE MY country?

        Then you have ZERO STANDING to plead a word.

      • Ten years bitch. 1982-1992 under real Presidents Ronald Reagan and George HW Bush. 4-0 Grenade, Panama, Cold war, Operation Desert Storm

      • Ten years bitch. 1982-1992 How many for Obama and Clinton? ZERO!

      • Stephen Barlow

        Reagan Reagan BUSH!

      • And you, Clinton and Obama have shit.

      • Stephen Barlow

        HEY DORK! THIS IS ALL YOUR PLAN….

        I made a volume comparison based on your only supporters Breitfarticle.

        Which you have so REDiculously morphed into a comedy skit. Complete with dancing trucks that change costumes and magical baggage that doesn’t hold water.

        Does the animal shelter KNOW what you DO TO all those puppies and kittens after you put the Reagan masks on them?

      • Nemisis

        None of this is my plan.
        You were very specific about the size of magical truck and the capacity of said truck. I merely pointed out that the magic truck would not be possible. By the way I said it would need T.A.R.D.I.S. Technology, not magic to be able to fit all the oil you claimed. Although I did not rule out magic. This is all based off of your “Facts”.
        I have simply chosen to use actual facts to counter your claims.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Youfucccckinliar. I made 2 size comparisons. You ginned up a smuggling ring run by you idol, Chickie KOCH.

      • You love Koch. How about George Soros you liberal monkey.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I like George. He’s honest and transparent. Not like all the KOCH you worship. LMAO!!! What a KOCH worshipper!

      • Your Magic Messiah isn’t doing too well. Obozo is sucking BIG TIME.

      • Liberals queers have ‘Koch’ on their mind.

      • Stephen Barlow

        BLAH BLA H BL AAAH BLA HHH

      • Stephen Barlow

        NOOOPE! Your Breitbart source gave the ‘facts’ for your folly. I just compared then to common every day.objects. YOU morphed a fantasy about Another Kochspiracy. All on you own!

        Hehehe. I led you to the toilet… you chose to drink by the barrel. Hehehe

        Whack job.

      • Nemisis

        Stevie take your meds.

      • Stephen Barlow

        No balls to admit you’ve been bested by a mental patient?

      • STFU queer

      • Stephen Barlow

        Busted for being stupid AGAIN.

      • Stephen Barlow

        DOT REGS 18 wheels = 80,000#.
        As much cargo over the tare at of the vehicle.

        No one makes a 42′ tanker and 8500 is the largest capacity in the US.

        Your drunk mom take you bowling every day instead of schooling you?

  • J Matthew Locke

    Even the person who wrote the article on the link referred to them as “the radical Islamic terrorist organization known as ISIS or ISIL”. Why doesn’t somebody make up their freaking mind about what we will call these guy!!! At first, I thought that was their biggest weakness… an identity crises! BUT NO… this writer goes on to tell us that their biggest strength AND weakness is that they are better organized than al-Qaeda because they make a better target! Now THAT’S a comforting thought. I never heard of some group being weak because they are better organized. And BTW… THANKS for pointing that out on the WORLD WIDE WEB. I would not ever under-estimate my enemy like that… whatever their fucking name is!
