RUSSIA'S VOW TO DEFEAT ISIS : Pledge to Iraq undercuts U.S role

May 21, 2015

MOSCOW  -  Russia offered visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi military & other aid on Thursday to help push back Islamic State militants who have made further sweeping gains in both Iraq & Syria this week.  The advances by ISIS , which captured the Iraqi city of Ramadi last weekend & on Thursday was tightening its grip on the historic city of Palmyra in neighboring Syria , have exposed the shortcomings of Iraq's army & the limitations of U.S. air strikes.  In going ahead with his visit to Moscow despite the worsening security crisis , Abadi said he had wanted to underline the importance of his country's ties with Russia , adding that he had disregarded " certain forces " advising him to cancel the trip.

 

" We are expanding co-operation in the area of military technology " Russian President Vladimir Putin said at the start of talks with Abadi in the Kremlin , hailing Iraq as an " old & reliable partner in the region ".  " Our relations are developing very successfully ... Our companies are working in your country & we are talking of investments in the order of  billions of dollars " Putin added , without elaborating.  Russian companies were involved in the Iraqi economy for decades during the rule of Saddam Hussein & strongly opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003 which ousted the dictator & ushered in a prolonged period of turmoil.  Earlier on Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow would make every effort to ' help Iraq defeat Islamic State ' whose capture of Ramadi last weekend was the most significant setback for the Baghdad government in a year.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS  -   Was this  THE  long-prophesied ' visit ' foretold in scripture ??  With his country being torn apart by sectarian violence ,  Iraq's beleagured Prime Minister last week visited Vladimir Putin in Moscow to shore up both diplomatic & commercial relations with Russia.  Interestingly , in the above news report , the Prime Minister pointedly stated he  " disregarded ' certain forces ' who advised him to cancel the trip ".  There can be little doubt this was a deliberate swipe against America , whose perplexing foreign policy & much-vaunted ( but ineffective ) air-campaign has failed to halt the ISIS rampage.  Faced with the terrorist onslaught  &  America's shrinking involvment in the conflict , it would seem this visit to the Kremlin by Iraq's PM was more of a desperate plea for Russian assistance . . . which Mr.Putin has agreed to !!!

 

Over 2,000 years ago , the prophet  Ezekiel  spoke of  ' a visit '  that would be made to the ' Gog of the latter days '  . . .  a ' visit '  that would lead to an apocalyptic invasion into the Middle East by Gog  &  a host of nations.  Could Iraq's plea for Russian help against ISIS be the ' end-time trigger ' to Russia's descent into the Middle East ??   This prophecy also says at  ' the same time '  this invasion takes place , Gog will conceive a new sinister plan to prey upon God's Holy Land.  As the Russian-led invaders wreak havoc upon Israel , we know it will be ' the final tribulation ' upon God's people , that will precipitate the outpouring of God's fury & judgment upon these nations that battle against Jerusalem.  The day draws near !!!     

 

EZEKIEL  38 v 8-12  -   After many days thou ( Russian ' Gog ' ) ' shalt be visited ' :  in ' the latter years ' thou shalt come into the land  . . .  Thou shalt ascend  &  come like a storm , thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land , thou  &  all thy bands  &  ' many people ' with thee.  Thus saith the Lord GOD ;  It shall also come to pass , that at the same time shall ' things come into thy mind '  thou shalt think ' an evil thought '.  And thou shalt say , I will go up to the land of unwalled villages ;  I will go to them that are at rest , that dwell safely , all of them dwelling without walls & having neither bars nor gates . . . To take a spoil  &  to take a prey  !!
