Hillary Clinton on the Syria No-Fly Zone

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (L), Turkey’s President Abdullah Gul (C) and Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu (R) (AFP)

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu indicated in a meeting with reporters Saturday that they were exploring the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Syria.  I managed to reach Secretary Clinton by phone shortly afterward.

BW:            Secretary Clinton, the U.S. is a pioneer in this sort of project.  You pretty much eradicated the mosquito in the Panama Canal Zone more than a century ago.  How difficult do you think it is going to be to eradicate the flies in Syria?

HC:            I’m not sure how to answer that.  It’s not really about eradicating flies.  We have more important things in mind.

BW:            So what eradication do you intend?

HC:            We want to do it right.  The plan would be to stop everything from flying.

BW:            My goodness!  Even the birds and the bees and the butterflies?  It sounds very ambitious.

HC:            We’re talking about humans and cargo here, Barb.  The idea is to prevent aircraft from flying.  It’s for the protection of the Syrian population.

BW:            So how would you accomplish this?

HC:            By sending in military aircraft, drones and missiles to strike, bomb and strafe the population and installations.

BW:            Is that what you call a no-fly zone and protection of the Syrian population?

HC:            You don’t understand, Barb.  You have to fly aircraft in order to prevent the flying of aircraft, and you have to strike, bomb and strafe Syrians in order to protect them.

BW:            You’re right. I guess I don’t understand.  How do the Syrians feel about this?

HC:            They love it, Barb.  They want us to strike and bomb and strafe them.

BW:            And you know this…how?

HC:            They’ve said so themselves, and especially the Syrians from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Israel and the U.S.  Of course, the U.S. would never send its own aircraft and combat troops or equipment for this purpose.  We provide only nonlethal aid such as maps with suggestions of where best to kill people.

BW:            Then where is the equipment made?

HC:            Oh, it’s made in the U.S., of course, but we sell or give it to others and then instruct them to give it to Syrians from Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Israel and the U.S. to be used to protect other Syrians.  You can protect a lot more Syrians with a half-tonne bomb than with an automatic rifle, but we let others provide that kind of aid under our guidance so that our hands are clean – speaking of which, I should have stopped by the washroom.

BW:            I guess this is a lot different than eradicating mosquitos.

HC:            Yes, but eradication is eradication, and as you say, we’ve always been good at it.

    Despite what Hillary Clinton and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu indicated in the meeting about exploring the possible imposition of a no-fly zone over Syria.

    I guess, especially after their defeat in the so called mother of battles in Aleppo, the no-fly zone is not on the table.

    My English is not so good the imagine a conversation between Hillary Davutoglu, therefore, I would say Hillary if honest would have said to the reporters: WE CAME, WE SAW, HE IS ALIVE.

    Syria is not Libya, its army is intact.

    I read reports confirming that Syria so-far used the “peoples army” formed, trained during the past 17 momths, to fight streets war. The plan used in Damascus and Aleppo is inspired by the tactics Hezbollah used in may 2008 to control Beirut within few hours by dividing it into square.

      “…Hillary if honest would have said to the reporters…”

      If honest? You have a bigger imagination than I do, Alex.

    i’ve have too busy to post lately. the jewish run msn “news” has israeli quislings screaming for a syrian no-fly zone. that means their merc terrorists have been defeated on the ground and this time, unlike with libya, the zionazis don’t have u.n. backing for a no-fly zone, so how they would enforce it without causing international incidents is questionable.

    apparently the zpc’s quislings feel no need to be consistent any more. is this because they think the past 2-3 generations dumbing down of the american people by the jewish run media and “education” system has sufficiently advanced american ignorance to the point the fascists can invent whatever bs they want and americans will accept it as “fact”?

    btw, i’ve noticed that in most photos, hitlery looks very greasy and unwashed. like she never advanced beyond that 19th century southern bubba institution of washing once a week, and piling on the perfume and chemicals to try and hold the stink down during the rest of the week. :D

    “Negotiations are currently underway which could lead to an agreement. Your support is needed.

    If you want to help save Yara Saleh al-Abbas, please send this letter to the chief advisors of French President François Hollande:”

    (please see the above link for these and the message)

    Yara Saleh al-Abbas is a syrian journalist who was kidnapped by the zionazi mercs operating in syria.

    amnesty international: for human rights, or a goebbelsian liar’s outfit? you decide:

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=32271

    “Amnesty’s record on impartiality suffered a fatal blow when they stated in 1991 that Iraqi soldiers had torn babies from their incubators in Kuwait and left them to die on the floor of the hospital’s neo-natal unit. Arguably this sealed the 1991 onslaught on Iraq. The story that the Kuwaiti government rewarded Amnesty with $500,000 for endorsing this pack of lies has not gone away – and as far as I am aware, to date, has not been denied.”

    they’ve gone downhill since that high point in their career.

    [“…Hillary if honest would have said to the reporters…”

    If honest? You have a bigger imagination than I do, Alex.]

    (CBS/AP) WASHINGTON – Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says plans to set up a no-fly zone over parts of Syria are “not on the front burner,” despite persistent calls from rebel forces there that they need the added protection from escalating regime air strikes.

    In an interview with The Associated Press on Monday, Panetta said he is confident the U.S. could successfully enforce a no-fly zone over Syria, but doing so would require a “major, major policy decision” that has not yet been made.
