What are the legal options for targeting sources of revenue through military operations? This article posits an analysis in three sections. First, the Background examines the history behind targeting principles as they pertain to military operations, both under United States military operating procedure and International Law. This article then makes the argument that the United States applies a broader interpretation to what military objects are, when compared to their international counterparts. Finally, this article acknowledges the likelihood that objects, such as oil depots, may be lawful targets of military attack when applying the United States approach, but may not be under international law.
