RUSSIAN EYES ON MIDDLE EAST: Open Air Operating Base in Syria
SYRIA - Russia's latest movements at an airfield in Syria suggest plans to establish a forward air operating base, the Pentagon said on Monday, generally describing Russian movement of "people and things" in Syria but declining to offer specifics on US intelligence. " We have seen movement of people and things that would indicate that they plan to use that base there, south of Latakia, as a forward air operating base," said Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis. The Syrian ambassador to Moscow, Riad Haddad, said talk of a Russian troop presence on the ground in Syria is " a lie ", ITAR-TASS news agency reported. Two unnamed US officials told Reuters earlier on Monday that the United States believed Russia had moved tanks to the airfield. One of the officials said that seven Russian T-90 tanks were observed at the airfield near Latakia, a stronghold of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - For over 150 years the Christadelphian community has understood that Russia would one day invade Israel. It is truly remarkable now to witness Russia setting up a forward base so deep into the Middle East. An operating air base in Syria with troops and tanks. This is a staging post for the future invasion. The king of the north is on the move – SOUTH. Surely for those who have doubted Russia’s future invasion of Israel must now see that it is entirely possible. We are no longer considering something that seems beyond all likelihood – but now it is a distinct possibility. With Bible in hand it was never doubted – but even with no Bible the direction is clear. There can surely be no excuse when we finally stand before the Lord Jesus at the judgement. We cannot say – “ we had no evidence - we had no idea it was about to happen ”. We have no excuse !
DANIEL 4v 3 - How great are his signs ! and how mighty are his wonders ! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.
