But you'd rather blame Assad rather than consider embarrassing fact involving a NATO member.
You keep on pushing the 'Assad buy oil from ISIS scarecrow but carefully avoids any mention to the fact that Turkey is the major player in ISIS oil trade.
He was not bluffing. The Greeks are not complaining about the fact that since, the Turks stop violating their airspace. The next big firework may well involve Turkish planes and Russian S-400 should the Caliph ever ambition to behave in Syria like he does over Iraq.
Lending a hand can be indeed be interpreted by paranoiac people as an attempt at a slap in the face.
When removinbg his troops in order to do in 5 months what the US screwed for 5 years.
face the fact that the US is one of the most hated country in the world. Not because of what it represent but because of how it behaves.

Can you think of another reason why he did nothing to stop ISIS, which is chiefly composed of foreigners, while concentrating his attacks on native Syrian rebels. Why would he buy oil from them if he didn't consider them to be an asset?
I'd rather let someone speech by himself rather than pretending my superior knowledge of what someone might be thinking. That often shatter paradigms.
Do I really to re-list once all the previous items you found not worth considering ?
You prefer the US made one, I can understand.
I am not blaming you for being a patriotic sheeple.
I consider it is dangerous to support US policies that turn out to backfire against America and, I do that because I wish the best for the US. (If only these policies were followed in the name of American interests ...)
This is evidence of ‘Perception Management' imo. Are you looking for answers or reassuring claims when reading that ? What can you tell us about the author of the article you linked?
In response to : Or maybe you consider your claims make more sense : Assad buys oil he could have extracted himself from terrorist wagging war against him ... of course.
So because you - from an obviously distant point of view - wish to consider that he may not have the possibility to refine the oil (oil that he still extracts BTW as of your own graph), you gobble the fact that he is buying some from the guys is wagging war against ?
He may not be able to export oil anymore for sure. And get the money from it. But he is not oil-less. And should he comes short, he would imo try to get some from Iran given that the few supplies is still received before the Russian intervention were sourced from there.

Stop playing the contortionist to ... your own ... and face the fact that the US is one of the most hated country in the world. Not because of what it represent but because of how it behaves.

So you would have preferred that ISIS destroyed completely Syria ?
I'm sure you don't.
Funny how Assad fighting ISIS never seemed to be an option.
