Major US corporate cartels are reportedly geared to become the main beneficiaries of the so-called US-led coalition against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists.

US corporate cartels benefit from war on ISIL Reports

According the LA Times, giant military contractor Raytheon has won a new deal to provide the US military with more Tomahawk cruise missiles that could be fired into Iraq and Syria.

As the US military is expected to go on a spending spree, all major arms contractors are trading near all-time records on the stock market with their share prices constantly on the rise.

Other US weapons manufacturers are also set to benefit from the war on ISIL in the long run, as they produce most of the vehicles now being used by the Takfiri group.

As ISIL vehicles are mostly US-manufactured cars looted from Iraq, analysts predict that firms such as Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman will be awarded contracts in the future to provide the Iraqi army with a whole new collection of vehicles.

The potential financial windfall for the US military firms comes amid the Pentagon’s call for more diverse war tactics against the ISIL.

Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby warned on Friday that the ISIL group has enormously shifted its tactics to make the airstrikes “more difficult.”

Since September 22, the US and several of its Arab allies– Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, — have been conducting airstrikes against ISIL inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.

The Syria air campaign is an extension of the airstrikes, launched since August 8, on ISIL positions in Iraq, where five European countries– Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Britain and France– have committed aircraft to the military operation.

But so far, only Britain and France have joined the United States in attacking ISIL strongholds in Iraq.

Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are said to be the staunch supporters of militants fighting the Syrian government.
