To start with the 40 trucks the rebels have, have not been shown to have been lost to ISIS. And the mystery of Toyota' s is not really a mystery it is just smuggling. Not something new in that part of the work. Through Iran, Lebanon, Turkey or the coasts of Syria. The same way oil gets out. Ammunition and AK47s get in.
Second the FBI suggests backing up your work, having good virus scanners, not clicking on links etc. You can find all this on their website, they at no point recommend just paying them.
And last the US and ISIS under its other names have fighting with each other since the late 1990s when they assassinated a US diplomat in Jordan. They fought the US under the Al Quada name in Iraq and now do so under ISIS. The idea that the US has been undercutting everything it wanted to accomplish in mid east by funding ISIS makes zero sense. ISIS uses mostly Russian weapons and ammunition. Does that mean Russia is supporting ISIS? No, outside buyers purchase what is needed and smuggle it in.

One aspect I haven't seen discussed yet concerning the fact that the US government is supporting ISIS is simply...what are the implications?
Isis Toyota Trucks came from the US State Department
Putin Tells Everyone Exactly Who Created ISIS
The inspiration for this thread came from the following thread:
Held ransom by malicious spyware? Just pay up, FBI says
I find it so odd that the FBI would tell people to financially support terrorists (the hackers creating the spyware mentioned above are terrorists). I don't think anyone should be really surprised. The US government is directly supporting terrorists. Why not support them indirectly too?
I've got a conspiracy theory to add to this. What if the FBI is working with the hackers? Or...what if a US government agency is creating the spyware? All bets are off now IMHO. If you can stoop to the level of supporting ISIS, how much lower is it even possible to go?
How bad can things get?
