US, Turkey Complicit in IS Oil Smuggling, Says Russian UN Envoy

While the msm and it's counterparts in the alt media keep singing the 'bad Turkey' tune incessantly....What was Russia really saying about IS oil trade? It was always doubtful that they saw Turkey as the sole miscreant in this oily business.

Washington and Ankara have violated international law by failing to provide the United Nations Security Council with adequate information on the Islamic State group's illegal oil activities, RT reported Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vitaly Churkin, to have said Monday morning.
Reminding his counterparts of U.N. Resolution 2199, which was introduced February 2015 as a countermeasure against the trade of “terrorist” groups operating in Iraq and Syria, Churkin pointed out that “countries are obliged to provide information” on the financial activities of the Islamic State group.
 “That means the Americans had to provide such information, and of course Turkey, which should have reported any illegal trade going on there. They didn't do it, Churkin told the RIA Novosti news agency.

Churkin on the US having the knowledge of brand ISIS rebels oil smuggling:
You've (US/NATO) been flying there for a year, we've been there for two months and already provided many photos showing that oil is smuggled through the Turkish border,” Churkin told RIA Novosti.
“They must have known, and if they did, they should have reported it to the Security Council,” he continued.
 Resolution 2199 was unaminously adopted Feb. 12, 2015, in order to prevent funding to the Islamic State group, al-Qaida and other militant groups operating inside Iraq and Syria. The resolution was also introduced in an attempt to put a stop to the Islamic State group’s illegal trade of oil, anqituities and hostages in both countries.

  1. I read somewhere - a very long time ago, that one of the main proponents behind the promotion of the BTC pipeline, was our good friend Mr Brzezinski.

    Our good friend Mr Brzezinskis support for the pipleline was not because he felt that it was needed or necessary in order to transport oil, but mostly as a means to have grounds for antagonising Russia.

    Can't remember where I read it, and am much too lazy to try and track it down now, but I'd guess I read it in relation to the Georgian mini-war in 2008.

    Oil and pipelines are not the reason these people do what they do - oil and pipelines are merely the weapons they choose to use to help achieve their aims.

    1. Hi Hubris:

      "Oil and pipelines are not the reason these people do what they do - oil and pipelines are merely the weapons they choose to use to help achieve their aims"

      Very insightful. Anthony who sometimes stopped by shared a similar kind of thinking- hoping he comes by and shares it again, because I thought it was good.

      Gallier 2 has also made similar observation

      BTC pipeline was built to antagonize Russia- As a kind of monopolization tactic.

      What I liked about this article? Why I posted it?

      Because it had confirmed, as I'd suspected, that Russia was not just finger pointing at Turkey- there was no way in heck that was the case- despite the many reports to the contrary!

      Churkin named the US first. Then Turkey. That was intentional. Primary player. Secondary player.

  2. Some time ago, a large number (several hundred) ISIS thugs left Syria for Libya. It seems they have set their sights on the Libyan oil fields, presumably as an alternative source of funding.

    If any one has any connections with the US Treasury Terrorist Funding department, let them know about this. The US Treasury does seem to have extreme difficulty tracking ISIS funding so I guess they need all the help they can get.
