Securing the Syrian oil fields is top priority of America in Syria

It was always about the oil? 

The Pentagon emphasized Monday that U.S. troops will secure oil fields in northeast Syria in the wake of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s death.

Trump highlighted a potential U.S. energy market opportunity by tapping into Syrian oil.

“What I intend to do, perhaps, is make a deal with an ExxonMobil or one of our great companies to go in there and do it properly…and spread out the wealth,” Trump said, adding that U.S. troops would be tasked with retaining control of the oil facilities.
