RUSSIA, IRAN FORCES IN SYRIA : US, Allies short on options
SYRIA - Across the Middle East, America’s traditional allies are watching with disbelief as Russia and Iran mount a show of force in Syria, and they are wondering how it will end. The U.S.-led coalition, created to combat the jihadi threat from Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, has been wrong footed by the Russian jets pounding the rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and by an influx of Iranian forces. The question on everyone’s mind is: will the United States and its European and regional Sunni allies intervene to stop President Vladimir Putin from reversing the gains made by mainstream Syrian rebels after more than four years of war? Few are holding their breath. Many say, often with vehemence, that the current drama is the consequence of ongoing Western inaction and U.S. retreat at critical moments in an ever more uncontrollable conflict, whose regional dimensions are fast becoming global.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - As the article says – this is an ever more uncontrollable conflict – regional dimensions are fast becoming global. The king of the north , Russia will ultimately lead a ' confederacy of nations ' which includes Iran. Ezekiel 38 of speaks of these two opposing powers does NOT mention Syria. Why not ? Because Syria / Damascus has been destroyed BEFORE the Gogian invasion. The Syrian conflict is part of the stage 1 of the final conflict. It is the conflict detailed in Zechariah 12 and Isaiah 17. There will be a war (coming soon) between Israel and her surrounding neighbours (Palestinians, Hezbollah, Syria). It will see the total end of Syria as a nation. Israel will be left greatly weakened. At this point Israel’s “pricking briers” will be removed. But shortly after a so-called peace Russia will descend . . .
EZEKIEL 28 v 22-24 - " Thus saith the Lord GOD ; Behold , I am against thee , O Zidon : For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets ; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon her on every side ; and they shall know that I am the LORD. And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them ; and they shall know that I am the Lord GOD. "
