Before we get to that news, let's think about:
51 American diplomats push to openly strike Syria
BEIRUT—Dozens of State Department officials this week protested against U.S. policy in Syria, signing an internal document that calls for targeted military strikes against the Damascus government and urging regime change as the only way to defeat Islamic State.The regime change agenda was NEVER off the table- It's never been off the table. The goal of balkanizing Syria has NEVER been off the table.
Let's think about: Kurdistan: Plans for Northern Syria & Jews of Kurdistan want more recognition
The autonomous federation being planned by Syrian Kurdish parties and their allies is taking shape fast: a constitution should be finalised in three months, and possibly sooner, to be followed quickly by elections, a Kurdish official said.Constitution and elections in three months- And then a NO Fly Zone?
Entirely possible. Recalling the no fly zone in Iraq to 'protect' from Saddam
Let's think about: 2 US Military Bases undoubtedly both with airfields and one French Base same as the US military bases
Turkey's Destabilization- Kickin' It Up a Notch? Or Two,Three, Ten Notches??
Recall? US/NATO War Expansion- Special Ops to Airbase-AWACS and more*So, we've got the 51 diplomats demanding attack and regime change
U.S. special operations troops have reportedly taken over an airfield in northeastern Syria, potentially clearing the way to flow more American military support to friendly militias fighting the Islamic State group.A small team of U.S. troops is setting up a base camp at Rmeilan Air Base in the Syrian Kurdish region near Syria's Iraqi and Turkish borders, according to local reports.
Plus Reuters: U.S. builds two air bases in Kurdish-controlled north Syria: Kurdish report
The United States has nearly finished setting up an air base in Kurdish-controlled northern Syria and was proceeding with the construction of a second base for dual military and civilian use, a Kurdish website said on Sunday.The Erbil-based news website BasNews, quoting a military source in the Kurdish-backed Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), said most of the work on a runway in the oil town of Rmeilan in Hasaka was complete while a new air base southeast of Kobani, straddling the Turkish border, was being constructed.The French have begun constructing a military base also. Soon enough the UK will be there or share the American ones . Whichever?
– French forces stationed in northern Syria have begun constructing a military base near the city of Kobani in Aleppo province, a Kurdish source told Sputnik on Friday."The French have begun constructing a military base similar to the US military bases… French experts and military advisers working in the region will be stationed there," the source said.
*We've got Rojova in a position to ask for a no fly zone
*We've got multiple military bases including air fields to enforce the no fly zone.
* No need for Turkey (non NATO Turkey)- the US has already made noise about withdrawing from Incirlik & they've been firing from the Mediterranean
Let's get to the ability and readiness to create a no fly zone in Syria
The U.S. Air Force is ready to create a no-fly zone in Syria, as stated by General David Goldfein, Rosbalt reported.Goldfein. Pentagon appointed Jewish General. The second Jewish US Airforce Chief of Staff.
Digression endsAirforce TimesHow often have we read comparisons of Kosovo and Syria: Kind of a history repeating scenario, no?
Gen. David Goldfein, a battle-tested command pilot who flew combat missions in the Gulf War, the Afghanistan War, and in NATO's 1999 air war to force the president of the former Yugoslavia to end his campaign of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, has been nominated to be the service's next chief of staff, the Pentagon said Tuesday.
General David Goldfein is the US Air Force Chief of Staff- Appointed late April to the position.
Therefore that message is coming directly from the top man!
"According to him, there are three conditions necessary to introduce a no-fly zone. First, is the permission to shoot down all planes that enter the no-fly zone, including Russian ones.The Russian planes will not enter Rojova's airspace - That's what I see as the arrangement.
Of course, I could be mistaken.
Also, the Air Force should have a clear understanding of the challenges “on the ground” in a no-fly zone. In order to return refugees and provide them with humanitarian assistance there must be local forces, which will control the situation on the ground.
It is also necessary to redistribute the efforts of military aviation between maintaining the no-fly zone and the ongoing operation against terrorist groups. Goldfin stressed that the establishment of such a zone will protect civilians from bombing.
Earlier, Washington opposed the creation of no-fly zones in Syria as it would require ground forces. "U.S. President Barack Obama, believes that such a move is not in the interest of our national security," the Press Secretary of White House, Josh Ernest, said"
Earlier Washington opposed the creation of a no fly zone? How about now?
Almost a year ago I mentioned the possibility of a no fly zone as a bad omen for Turkey:
"NATO has already sold Turkey down the river- That's very clear. At least it is to me.
They've unleashed the PKK hell hounds, but, what about that safe zone or buffer zone?
The so called safe zone is nothing but the US and company paying lip service to Turkey's government, minimally. But even worse, the safe zone may be a way to draw Turkey into a fight it can't win- In order to grind it down"
"If Turkey's goal was to prevent a hostile Kurdish territory from forming at it's border, and I do believe that was their goal, the US will no doubt target Turkish military assets. Turkey has to be aware of the duplicity of the US & NATO. What is Turkey's plan?"
