White House- Kill Syrian/Iraqi Civilians- Exemption for airstrikes

Well, isn't Obama a real peacemaker, humanity saver, democracy bringer and freedom lover?
NOT! I am being completely facetious.
Read on-

White House exempts Syria airstrikes from tight standards on civilian deaths

 Not that the US was ever very careful when it came to civilians deaths however they at least talked as if they cared. Even that  pretense will not apply for Syria and Iraq
The White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.


A White House statement to Yahoo News confirming the looser policy came in response to questions about reports that as many as a dozen civilians, including women and young children, were killed when a Tomahawk missile struck the village of Kafr Daryan in Syria's Idlib province on the morning of Sept. 23.
 Asked about the strike at Kafr Daryan, a U.S. Central Command spokesman said Tuesday that U.S. military “did target a Khorasan group compound near this location. However, we have seen no evidence at this time to corroborate claims of civilian casualties.” But Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the National Security Council, told Yahoo News that Pentagon officials “take all credible allegations seriously and will investigate” the reports.  
At the same time, however, Hayden said that a much-publicized White House policy that President Obama announced last year barring U.S. drone strikes unless there is a “near certainty” there will be no civilian casualties — "the highest standard we can meet," he said at the time — does not cover the current U.S. airstrikes in Syria and Iraq.
The “near certainty” standard was intended to apply “only when we take direct action ‘outside areas of active hostilities,’ as we noted at the time,” Hayden said in an email. “That description — outside areas of active hostilities — simply does not fit what we are seeing on the ground in Iraq and Syria right now.” 
Hayden added that U.S. military operations against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) in Syria, "like all U.S. military operations, are being conducted consistently with the laws of armed conflict, proportionality and distinction."
  I'm torn between anger,disgust and heartbreak-

It's been an extremely busy just over 24 hours, so check out the many posts I have put up

Along with Turkish tanks come Troops (and others) How about a false flag to kick off the no fly zone?

Hong Kong Protests: Water, food, masks & medical supplies materialize

BBC
"Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have been receiving donations of food, water, masks and other medical supplies as they continue their demonstration that has brought large parts of the territory to a standstill"
"The supplies have been set out in an exceptionally organised way. There are even buckets with water-soaked paper towels in them, in case the authorities start to use tear gas and pepper spray again."
That's the entire BBC article- Those two quoted paragraphs
From who or where are these donations originating? It's not mentioned. All those goods cost money?
Wasn't the BBC reporter the least bit curious? Or are we supposed to believe/assume this support is coming from others within Hong Kong, hence the lack of detail?
Is that the idea the BBC is trying to implant in your mind? I suspect that's the idea BBC is hoping to give you as you read that story. 
But then I recall images such as this-

U.S. Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland offers food to pro-European Union activists as she and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt (R), walk through Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine.
And have a pretty good idea that the magically appearing supplies in Hong Kong were put there by some NoGoodOrganization, at the behest of the US, through any number of it's grasping tentacles.
And, the appearance of the supplies don't have a single thing to do with any broader support from within the general populace

Along with Turkish tanks come Troops (and others) How about a false flag to kick off the no fly zone?

Turkey boosts troop levels on Syrian border
Turkey bolstered security on its border with Syria on Tuesday, sending hundreds of soldiers and tanks (nothing to do with the flow of refugees)
The Turkish troops join other forces, including paramilitary units, along the border.
 Including paramilitary units along the border- As I mentioned yesterday...

I suspect that the tanks will support all the fighters that are entering from the hill tops of Turkey, overlooking Syria. Ya know the ones the mainstream media lies about? The "spectators" baloney

35 (or more) Turkish tanks lineup for their move into Syria

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu would hold a Cabinet meeting to discuss potential military options in Iraq and Syria including possible cross-border operations by Turkey’s powerful and well-equipped military

Yup, Turkey’s military, not so much a state military as an institution of it’s own, more allied with NATO then Turkey.. A subject discussed previously at the blog.

Any day now for the no fly/buffer zone, I would suspect.  And how about a false flag attack to kick that off?!- Hopefully, I am wrong.

The narrative has certainly been prepped:
British special forces in Iraq 'ordered to carry chemical suits as ISIS are feared to be planning gas attacks'
Britain's elite troops operating in Iraq are carrying chemical protection suits because IS fighters are feared to have chemical weapons.
"Britain's elite troops operating in Iraq are carrying gas protection suits because Islamic State fighters are feared to have taken control of Syrian chemical weapons.

 Despite international efforts to destroy President Assad's chemical weapon stockpile, it is thought that some may have fallen into the hands of ISIS after the militants seized vast swathes of Iraq and Syria

Relinked in last weeks post
Remember " War against Iraq, Syria & Iran? " ISIS wants Saudi Arabia?
Scroll down to this flashback-

"And while I am reveling in flashbacks, recall this? 
ISIS seizes Saddam era chemical facility - US reassures . Just in case something happens..................."

Also this?

 OPCW Report and Ongoing Concerns With Chemical Weapons Use in Syria
The OPCW report raises serious questions about the Syrian regime’s compliance with its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and UN Security Council Resolution 2118 as well as its willingness to continue using chemical weapons to kill or injure the people of Syria.


Earlier this month the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations spoke of her fear that IS and other terrorists could get hold of chemical weapons if Syria is hiding any stockpiles.
Or this?
"This month, Samantha Power, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters there were "discrepancies and omissions" in Syria's claims about the status of its chemical weapons materials. The concerns were heightened by the possibility that Islamic terrorists could find such materials"

35 (or more) Turkish tanks lineup for their move into Syria

It sure looks as if an official invasion from the Turkish border is being prepped.
 
I suspect that the tanks will support all the fighters that are entering from the hill tops of Turkey, overlooking Syria. Ya know the ones the mainstream media lies about? The "spectators" baloney
I saw a video on some network news outlet where the spectator/fighters just can't take it anymore and stream over the border as "ISIS" shoots at them and amazingly misses every single one of them?!?! Amazing? Really amazing, that ISIS, which is 'fighting Kurds' missed every single PKK fighter What are the odds?

 Also fortuitous was how nice the whole show presented for the American news media.

Here's one tale of such heroics

Ahmed, 41, is one of the seasoned combatants who want to take up arms against Isis. Originally from Siirt, he has been with the PKK in Turkey since 1991, but for the past two years he has been fighting against Islamist militants in Iraq. Six days ago he decided to join the battle against Isis in Kobani province.
After several brief visits with PYD fighters across the border he is ready to go. He is waiting for nightfall in a small village close to Kobani. “PYD fighters will come to the border fence to help us cross,” he explains. “They know the safe spots.”


Turkey's military on Monday deployed 35 tanks in a border town near Syria

Or AlJaz

 Turkish tanks have been sent to hills overlooking the Syrian border town of Ain al-Arab besieged by ISIL, while a US-led coalition intensified its bombing of the group in northern and eastern Syria.

 Yes, ISIS is chock full of Kurds, IMO. ( I have said it before and I will state it again.
Kurdish fighters make up some percentage of "ISIS".
Along with assorted NATO special operatives. US. UK. Canadian. French and so forth and so on
Imported fighters.- Chechen, Uighur, Pakistanis- European imports.
Turks and Israeli boots definitely on the ground too!
