Answer: Of course it is all about money. There are whole books about war economy that discuss how much a war costs and whether it is possible to start a war, etc.
Therefore to recover from this blow is difficult. New ties and flows have to be established, after all, it is millions of dollars!
It’s possible that this event could be a turning point in the war, but this is where a new large-scale turmoil begins between the Shiites and the Sunnis, Iran against Saudi Arabia, and all the rest. So it will not be quiet.
Question: Do you think ISIS can be defeated this way?
Answer: In principle, you cannot win in any way. History proves that, starting with ancient Rome. Rome acted with fire and sword, Greece with its philosophy. All of this cannot be beat.
The only thing we can do is to unite since otherwise the defeated later defeats you, just as we see throughout history. The problem here is simple, and the moment they get the money they need, they will restart the fighting and they will take the fight to Europe. Of course it will cost a lot, but there are strong people behind this with the ideology and money who will help ISIS.
I don’t think such an action will put an end to anything. If the spiritual root of this problem is not taken care of, it will keep on going, and if not in its current form, in a different form.
The spiritual root of ISIS is unity for the sake of conquest and destruction. And against this should stand unity for the sake of spiritual development, because there is nowhere else we can egoistically develop in this world.
