Yep, that's all it is. Pompeo is trying to be off the radar while he tries to coordinate the battle plans too.The Neocons' shitty rhetoric: The US is worrying about the Syrian people and the stability in the region.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B)
ADS-B is transforming all segments of aviation. Real-time precision, shared situational awareness, advanced applications for pilots and controllers alike — these are the hallmarks of ADS-B NextGen surveillance.
ADS-B improves safety and efficiency in the air and on runways, reduces costs, and lessens harmful effects on the environment.
- Real-time ADS-B is used now for air traffic control
- General aviation is safer with ADS-B traffic, weather, and flight-information services
- Safety and efficiency improve with advanced ADS-B applications

The U.S. Air Force is positioning four B-52s to Qatar. And, for the very first time, at least one of the Stratofortress bombers could be tracked online as it deployed from Barksdale Air Force Base to Al Udeid.
As you probably already know by now, U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan has ordered repositioning a carrier strike group and redeploying strategic bombers as part of a BTF (Bomber Task Force) to the Middle East in response to “troubling and escalatory indications and warnings” related to Iran.
The first two of four B-52 bombers, radio callsign “MYTEE 51-52” have arrived to Al Udeid, Qatar, from their homebase at Barksdale AFB, Lousiana, on May 8; the second “wave” (MYTEE 53-54) followed on the same route on May 9. While “Buffs” regularly deploy across the world and are visible almost daily on flight tracking websites, this Middle East deployment marked the very first time a B-52 bomber deploying to the CENTCOM area of responsibility could be monitored, live, during its transit from CONUS to destination.
Is this a big deal? Most probably not: the fact that the bombers were being deployed was far from secret. Still, the possibility to track the flight while in progress provided many insights including specific airframes taking part in the deployment, their support tankers, their route, etc. These details give aviation enthusiasts as well as analysts several much more information about the way the bombers deployed to Al Udeid than it would be possible to gather if the aircraft were not tracked.
What follows is a brief recap based on OSINT (Open Sources Intelligence) of the details that ADS-B, Mode-S and MLAT provided about the first pair of B-52s that could be tracked online via information in the public domain as they deployed to the Middle East.Vulnerable To Cyber Attacks, ADS-B May Expose F-22s To Web Based Tracking GAO Warns
Notice how the arguments by Jeffrey outlining their view of the war in Syria is total psychopathological projection and wishful thinking.Jeffrey to Asharq Al-Awsat: We Want Full Iranian Withdrawal From Syria
By Ibrahim Hamidi - 10 May, 2019
And after all these continued attacks from the US they just want to stop the flow of refugees into Europe (sure...).In an interview with Asharq Al-Awsat, Jeffrey said Washington would continue to pressure Damascus and its allies through economic sanctions, a military presence in northeastern Syria and a halt to Arab and Western normalization until a “new political government is formed.” [regime change plan is their "normalization"]
“We will continue to find different ways to pressure [Syria] until the regime decides to cooperate on the political process,” he said. “The solution is political; not military.”[cooperation is nothing short of capitulation]
Asked about Washington’s position towards the current escalation in Idlib [their way or the highway], he said that the US administration was against such escalation.
He stressed that US President Donald Trump had stated in September that a comprehensive attack on Idlib [self-defense is just plain reckless] would constitute a reckless act, not only out of concern over the possible use of chemical weapons, but also because it would lead to a flow of refugees and displaced.
He noted that the US administration was using political, economic and military tools to deter dangers [dangers to Israel and the US never mind dangers to Syrians ] that might emerge from the Syrian conflict.
In this regard, he pointed to the continued US military presence to fight ISIS in northeast Syria and to prevent the filling of the vacuum [the vacuum they created can only be filled by their approved parties] by other parties, in addition to the US support of the Israeli campaign against the Iranian hegemony in the country.
Jeffrey went on to say that the Syrian regime’s access to reconstruction funds has stopped [continue strangling the victim into submission] , adding that his country was obstructing the recognition of the regime in the Arab League and was working on a coordinated sanctions program with the Europeans.
