US General: We Are Ready To Create a No-Fly Zone in Syria

The US is ready to create a no fly zone in Syria

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

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.
*So, we've got the 51 diplomats demanding attack and regime change

*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 article I linked to had a spelling error in the General's name- It's fixed and some additional information is being included.
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: 

Airforce Times
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.
How often have we read comparisons of Kosovo and Syria: Kind of a history repeating scenario, no?
 Gen. David Goldfein to Be Second Jewish U.S. Air Force Chief
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! 
Digression ends
 
"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?"

  1. Dempsey had a lot to say about the difficulty of a no fly zone. Wonder is this the plan or reactionary?

  2. If true, the creation of a no fly zone being in the cards, it has nothing to do with Syria or fighting islamo-nazis and everything to do with Russia. If the RASF's allow its creation and enforcement Putin will face turmoil at home politically and empires' propaganda machine will go full throttle to spread the Putin is weak message globally. Though the decision to allow might be the most sane response. Russia cannot permit another shoot-down of one of its aircraft without a military response. If there is a confrontation an escalation surely will occur. The neo-con nutrolls may very well then have their war with Russia; and the death of the EU. Two of their primary goals.

  4. thanks for the comments!

    I've updated the post with some additional information on the General- not just any General that's for sure

    He was appointed by Obama late April of this year (Less then two months ago) - He is the second Jewish General appointed to such a very high position- Bill Clinton appointing the first one

    Is it relevant that he is Jewish? In this situation? Absolutely! Protecting Kurdistan or Israel 2.0- He's the man

    He is the Chief of Staff of the US Airforce- He is the man at the top!


    He flew during Yugoslavia

    "in NATO's 1999 air war to force the president of the former Yugoslavia to end his campaign of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo"

    There's a familiar narrative!

    Also interesting to notice that no western media picked that news up...choosing to focus on the 51 signatories even today... Rather then a rather bold statement from the man running the show

    Hmmmmmmmm

  5. Thanks a lot Penny, people like you really give me faith that not everybody in the world is really falling for this Saudi Israelia 2.0. Can't believe that people don't see that the Commie PKK 'freedom fighters' are the same as the Mujahaddin 'freedom fighter's or any other people the West has armed that have later turned out to be terrorists. One day they are freedom fighters, the next terrorists. 'History repeats itself, once as a tragedy, then as a farce' - Karl Marx

  6. Hi Penny, of interest the murdered UK MP Jo Cox advocated for a Syria no fly zone and was very vocal on the subject in the house of commons! Although a wet behind the ears MP (former aid worker) she managed to make a name using the Syrian conflict and even criticised Obama (who she campaigned for in Carolina in 2008)

    In the UK as elsewhere when someone seen as a campaigner for 'the people' is killed they always want to forward causes or highlight them so expect more talk of this soon!

    1. She was a 'humanitarian interventionist', full of the 'Assad used barrel bombs against civilians' bs (though technically I suppose ISIS are civilians).

  7. Somewhere out there is a USAF general who explained exactly what creating a "no-fly zone" means. He made sure to let folks know that FIRST it means killing a whole bunch of the country's soldiers, then destroying the air defenses of the country, then wiping out their aircraft. And that was just the start... it only gets worse. After that is accomplished, trying to maintain it means both military and civilian deaths in the thousands.

    He was talking about what REALLY is meant by "no-fly zone". It's a nice friendly term for what in reality is intentionally eliminating national defenses. Along with "collateral damage" - you know those innocents who die when US enforces its will on a nation that dares refuse to bow down to US diktats.

    Obama won't order it now though, he's been spending his last year in office working on his so-called "legacy". TPTB won't start that sort of action till the next prez is sitting on the throne. Too risky for Killary for them to do it before her "coronation". Just like Bush, Obama is behind schedule on the plans but they've only adjusted the timing not the overall plan for total world domination.
