SDF Using Biometric Scanners To Identify Daesh Terrorists Fleeing Battle

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:55 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have begun using biometic scanners to identify Islamic State (ISIS) attempting to flee the battlefield among civilians in Al-Hasakah. The biometric scanners have a collection of data on most foreign Islamic State terrorists and the countries they come from. As these terrorists attempt to flee Syria for Turkey, they have to bypass SDF checkpoints which have these biometric scanners.

Curious as to wonder why Daesh terrorists are trying to flee into Turkey when Turkey claims to be invading North Syria to fight ISIS. Obviously they feel welcomed and more comfortable in Turkey.
It looks to me like they are using a very similar model that they had used in Fallujah, Iraq after the marines laid siege to the city back in 2004 or 2005 I think. Every person that returned to the city had their biometric data catalogued before their right to return was granted. They utilized similar equipment here to scan eyes and fingerprints.

Now clearly the excuse is to search for fleeing terror suspects. However, every single person is being scanned, meaning their biometric data is being recovered in the process and dumped into that massive database on humanity. In the West, it is easy to get identifying information on all humans because many just volunteer it all online for free without even being asked. But in the less developed areas of the Middle East, they hardly use the internet and so cataloguing existing humans is more difficult.

Using this method and facade of an excuse makes it easier to add those unregistered humans to the global database of personality profiles. If they actually ID any fleeing bad guys, thats a good thing, but is actually only secondary. The primary goal is data collection on the unregistered humans of the Mid East.

How on earth do you create a Dbase of eyeshots from known dessert Isis terrorists???

"The biometric scanners have a collection of data on most foreign Islamic State terrorists "

Somewhere in the dessert: "Please Sir, can you stop killing for a moment as my assistant scans your iris? Thank, you proceed! But let you be warned, if you cross the border we might catch you now! Have a good day. "

thats what they are selling, but clearly we are not buying it. Too bad the unfortunate SOB's over there do not really have a choice.

Someday soon, it will come here. Will we do our part to fight terror and confirm we are not isis terrorists by having our biometrics scanned??

I can hear a shrill "Raaaaacisssst!" from the deep blue states reading this

When a new offensive starts they drop leaflets first and offer the fighters a surrender deal. If a deal is struck then they send buses into the area to transport the once enemies of the Syrian state to a safer location... Plenty of videos showing this... I do not understand... No POW camp just a bus ride to a rear area and a release... Hell of a way to conduct a war on your sworn enemy IMO !

The whole Syrian war stuff has been insane from the get go... Now France is expanding their operations as the USA coalition continues to expand and build bases..The last base I saw has a very nice long runway and facilities to house 1200 troops or support personnel..... So much for a quick withdrawal...

....What if its true purpose is to get everybody's biometric data on file for the future robotic soldiers to use as target identification....

Just a thought

On the bright side, Trump did not start this, he is simply continuing it. Besides, we need Rojava and the mineral wealth there for our next generation consumer toys. Don't you want portable hologram tech?? Don' you want higher capacity batteries and sharper thinner screens?? Personal robot helpers? We need resources for that, specifically resources found in mountainous regions such as greater Kurdistan and Afghanistan.

Our consumer demands as a society are what drives our global quest of resource acquisition.

The French recently had a sniper team detained by Syrian army when they went to the wrong checkpoint lol. I am pretty sure that issue has been settled by now, its been about a week.

This is really the tip of the iceberg of emergent technology that will soon cause the biggest personal privacy controversies we have ever seen. Used to locate terrorists? ; yeah.. ok. But the same methods being developed can also cause you not to be hired for a job or discriminate against you for your belief systems.

What is scarier than this, is that science is very close to inventing the ultimate lie detector. This machine will be able to pinpoint the part of any persons brain that distinguishes between reality and fiction. It also will be great for determining the guilt of criminals, but think of all of the other 'uses' it will have. Scary times, these.
