Apocalyptic scenes as fleeing ISIS fighters bomb Iraqi town’s pipelines leaving rivers of oil and streets on fire

Fleeing ISIS fighters tried to raze an Iraqi town to the ground by flooding the streets with oil and setting it alight.

The murderous jihadists had been forced to retreat from Qayyara by Iraqi soldiers, in the latest US-backed push towards Mosul in the north of the country.

But as they fled, ISIS bombed pipelines and set fire to nearby oil wells, creating an endless cloud of black smoke that blocked out the sun and left the town shrouded in darkness.

The Iraq military’s official Twitter account posted images of the aftermath, showing the streets of Qayyara flooded with black oil, some of them on fire.

The apocalyptic scenes brought back imagery from the 1991 Persian Gulf War, when Iraqi military forces torched Kuwaiti oil wells while retreating from advancing coalition forces.

    None of this would be happening if the ignorant bastards who “placed” Obama(whoever he really is) into the White House. All hell and I mean all hell, has broken out all over the world as their plan to take over the world> America was too strong so as the front man, Obama was able to “contain” all objectors and if they got too close, take them out, so that the destruction could continue until our Military, Law Enforcement, Citizens with Arms, were weakened to the point that his army could wipe us out and keep only those who can work and produce income and luxury for the elitist bastards.
    The ignorance of anyone who could even consider voting for Hillary(Obama in disguise) makes me shudder! Valerie Jarrett the real PRESIDENT, IS A COMMUNIST, IS IRANIAN BORN AND IS BEHIND EVERYTHING OBAMA DOES. HE WAS NOT SENT TO THE WHITE HOUSE TO BE PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE IS REALLY A STUPID, IGNORANT, PHONY WHO CAN READ WELL! They are all evil and I pray it is not too late to take our country back, however, our Military has been so weakened and Obama has kept only the Generals that will cowtow to him!

    Burning the oil wells is minimal inconvenience, the murder of people is much worse.

    ISIS IS AN OUTLAW GROUP OUT TO DESTROY AND KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS THEY CAN. But they forget that somebody has to grow the food they eat, so the rest of the world should totally destroy all of them even if it takes an atomic bomb to do it swiftly.

    We’re there to help them fight a war, now going on what, 12 years, they should know by now how to fix their own oil wells! Just kill the enemy and D’N the rest!

    That sounds about right. When the enemy leaves create as many problems as possible for others to deal with. This has been going on since the start of warfare.
