    In your well 'trained' method, you posted the above in order to give the illusion Greece was buying stolen oil. Well here, let me post the reality. It's the first two paragraphs of the article:

    Over the weekend, Dimitrios Velanis, the Greek government's special adviser on Russian relations, told Russian state media that Greece will not interfere with Russian product tankers headed to and from the Syrian conflict.

    A report by Reuters last week revealed that Russian-flagged tankers are carrying jet fuel to Syria in contravention of EU sanctions, and that these vessels have stopped at Greek and Cypriot ports during these voyages.

    This is just who we are as a nation and as a society. Let's recall shall we?

    We partnered with Saddam and handed him the chemical weaponry we later were "aghast" about him using on his own people.

    We partnered with Osama.

    We have at times partnered with ISIS, al Qaida and Al Nusra.

    We still partner with the Wahabist Saudis who actually were involved in 9/11.

    We sold North Korea Nuclear reactors a mere two years before we place them on an “axis of evil”.

    We are THE world’s premier purveyor of arms and violence.

    Targeting ISIS? It is more like targeting Targeting Yemen for the House of Saud in Saudi Arabia. There is more to what has taken place in that region since this world has been in existence. There has been a move to reestablish themselves in the area, they know that what their fore-bearers added in destroying will never be as log as they are in existence, so their goal is to ruin the area with depleted uranium munitions and other weapons at their disposal.

    Makes you wonder how much of our understanding of the history of Rome is absolute BS. How many things that we read about that seem so "concrete and one sided" were actually split near 50/50 like today along partisan lines?

    History, it is the result of the winner and his-story

    Brings up an interesting problem with terrorism and really any type of violent group think.

    In the days of Charlamagne, if you thought an ideal was violent you could walk in and wipe out the city. (not saying that was good or bad, just saying it happened regularly)

    With the internet and global communication, you almost wonder if it is even possible to fully defeats some of these ideals

    Well no, I agree you probably never will defeat these ideals, ... I think it's important we continue to fight against it, as long as they're enslaving and chopping heads off I have issue with these ideals
