Not only are foodstuffs, medical supplies—even clinics—going to ISIS, the distribution networks are paying ISIS ‘taxes’ and putting ISIS people on their payrolls. GAZIANTEP, Turkey — While U.S. warplanes strike at the militants of the so-called Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq, truckloads of U.S. and Western aid has been flowing into territory controlled by the jihadists, assisting them to build their terror-inspiring “Caliphate.” The aid—mainly food and medical equipment—is meant for Syrians displaced from their hometowns, and for hungry civilians. It is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, European donors, and the United Nations. Whether it continues is now the subject of anguished debate among officials in Washington and European. The fear is that stopping aid would hurt innocent civilians and would be used for propaganda purposes by the militants, who would likely blame the West for added hardship.

Ooops... probably on purpose.

I can't believe the resources we waste on the Middle East, with all the wars going on there for centuries we could probably have propped up the whole goddamn world with vast resources like that.

Well, I guess that could be said for Europe too, these last 70 years or so though.

If isis blows up a bunch of stuff and then say that the west is making it worse by not sending supplies ,then they should just stop destroying they can get their hands on. . Or are they the ones that end up with the supplies ment to help people that really need it

It's wasteful for America but not for the ruling class. The military industry is doing amazingly well right now and more importantly it's part of the elaborate control system of the general populace.

Absolutely unbelievable and by design. Demand it stop and they resign and be arrested.

sadly this surprises no one. i am sure you all remember how we funded al qaeda as well, and probably still are.
they went from being terrorists to being "rebels" when it was convenient.
history repeats itself because we are too distracted by the next apple product the celebrity sex scandal and the latest videogame.
