  1. ISIS gets its money from selling oil and fuel on the black market and in turn that money buys ISIS’s ammunition on the black market so ISIS can keep on fighting. So yes it is vital that Iraq stops that and uses that oil and fuel for itself. The US and coalition countries have been airstrike bombing ISIS’s oil and fuel way behind ISIS’s lines in Iraq and in Syria, so they also are helping Iraq by doing that. Wars do cost a lot of money and ISIS is running low on money, oil and fuel and in turn low on ammunition to fight a war.
