Trump Keeps Talking About Syria's Oil Fields. Here's What's Going On With Them (Jeff Colgan cited)

Jeff Colgan in TIME, "A big part of the strategy of defeating ISIS was actually to try to disrupt the oil supply chain, to take out tankers carrying oil, or to destroy any kind of refineries, any sort of ISIS oil operations. The net result was Kurdish forces and U.S. forces helped occupy the territory where the oil fields are."
