Makes me chuckle how western commentators and journalists are generally demonising Russian activities and interests in order to set them up as the focal villain who's the root of all our problems. Never a word about western intelligence agencies destabilising and destroying entire countries for their own interests, or heavy propaganda employed by Western broadcasters on native populations, but when Russia does something similar, then it's something brand new, unforeseen, and the end of the world is nigh.

So basically, the isis guys prospered because a blind eye was turned to their selling the oil they pilfered from abandoned oil fields. I think we can all guess as to which allie they were selling to. People who are generally considered moderates in their religion, but still couldn't resist making a profit from a bunch of murdering-rapists, whilst certain american political leaders did nothing. These are the kind of business/political maneuvers we need to be familiar with. Peopel claiming to be on one side but really benefiting from the other surreptitiously. 

And what about all these 'mercenaries' Putin speaks of, how many of them escaped? 

 

Here's an interesting old account of some apnay who went to work in the region just before ISIS took over. The original website is no longer about, but the contents was copied before it went down:

Jeez Louise. That's a harrowing read. We occasionally knock the loafers and lafungeh of Punjab, but others just want to make something of their lives for their families. The fact they feel their only chance to succeed is to work in a warzone is an indictment on the opportunities available to people back home.

Nah, I think they got there just as it was turning into a fully blown warzone. Bad timing and a complete lack of ground level intel on our lots part perhaps?

This is how the jihadis started cleaning up the area.
