Ken Klippenstein: Why is the deconfliction process by which forces in Syria notify each other of air operations to avoid accidents so important?
Seymour Hersh: More air force is involved than people think. It’s not only Russian… Syria’s flying, Russia’s flying, America’s flying… The Brits fly, the Canadians fly, the Aussies fly. It’s sort of like air [traffic] control at an airport… We have something called AWACS. It’s a big plane that monitors everything and the Russians and the Syrians will communicate their routes and their packets and where they’re going and what they’re delivering in English to these aircraft, AWACS, which monitor large parts of Syria. So there’s a lot of coordination. That’s what deconfliction is.
Seems like war is a well planned game among a bunch of civilized imperialists against indigenous people who won’t build the pipelines the way the imperialists want. Its just business. Nothing against the defenseless civilians being killed. Unfortunate collateral damage, but pipelines got to go where pipelines have to go. We see this in our own country.
