Its All About the Dinars

Bomb them, bomb them into the stone age!

In an extremely unusual airstrike, the U.S. dropped bombs Sunday in central Mosul, Iraq, destroying a building containing huge amounts of cash ISIS was using to pay its troops and for ongoing operations, two U.S. defense officials told CNN.

The officials could not say exactly how much money was there or in what currency, but one described it as "millions."

Two 2,000-pound bombs destroyed the site quickly. But the longstanding impact may be even more significant. The officials said the U.S. plans to strike more financial targets like this one to take away ISIS's ability to function as a state-like entity.

Hey at least I didn't say carpet bomb, I mean I'm cool with but I didn't say it.

1 Bombing banks should make the Occupy guys happy.
I suppose they'll just have to form a cash-less utopia, now,
in which everyone loves, shares, cares, and starves.

Well actually they wouldn't say, not couldn't, otherwise they would have had to admit it was all the pallet loads of US dollars that "went missing" that was supposedly going to rebuild Iraq.

3 ISIS is so wealthy, they have money to burn --and they're so wealthy that they actually have other governments do it for them.

4 I wouldn't call it carpet bombing, maybe just bombing the hard wood flooring.

5 It would be nice if we could believe what our own government tells us. We can't.
