An airstrike by the U.S. blew up an ISIS warehouse in Mosul, Iraq where the terror group stored the equivalent of millions of dollar in cash to finance their operations, a senior U.S. defense official told Fox News on Monday.

The cash storage facility in the Iraqi city was hit by two 2,000-pound bombs, according to the official.

It was unknown how much money was in the facility, but it is estimated to be “in the millions,” the defense official said.

Not to worry. We just sent ANOTHER $500 Million. (really, no joke)

The US giveth, the US taketh away.

"The equivalent of millions of dollars" suggests the destroyed money was in some currency OTHER than USD, and thus a currency considerably smaller than the dollar.

Proof that ISIS is not really a threat. . . .


When an enemy (ISIS) can only exist with weapons given to it by the same country it is fighting and also chooses US currency as its default storage of value:


Its got manufactured, pseudo enemy, false flag entity written all over it.

Just as increasing the money supply isn't necessarily inflationary, reducing it isn't necessarily deflationary.

Exactamundo.


I guess that's why Russia was able to destroy 40% of ISIS infrastructure in Days while we had been fighting them for months with nothing to show for it.

Also, rumor was the Israeli Intelligence Service was called "ISIS" before the Mossad.

"ISIS’ interpretation of zakat takes 2.5 percent of capital from wealthy residents and businesses, 5 percent of irrigated crops and 10 percent of rain-fed crops from farmers, and days of service from doctors, who are forced to volunteer once a week at area hospitals."

Wealthy residents staying behind in a "war". That's a new one.

Also, notice that no one gets killed in these airstrikes on 'ISIS'. Even, the recapture of Ramadi from 'ISIS' yielded very few dead bodies despite the town being completely leveled. Civilians had essentially fled the city. Almost all of the ISIS fighters had been evacuated while the US held up the final assault on Ramadi for three days.

Your concept of scale/volume is off.

A few million getting vaporized is like having 20,000 in your pocket, and then losing a few pennies. Doesn't really matter.

If a money supply falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear it, is it deflationary?
