RUSSIAN MILITARY ON DISPLAY : Syria mission shows new prowess
SYRIA - Sleek combat jets loaded with precision bunker-buster bombs roar into the skies as soldiers in desert-style uniforms march past rows of neat housing at this Russian military base at one of Syria’s largest airports. The air campaign in Syria, Russia’s first military action outside the former Soviet Union since the war in Afghanistan, shows a revamped Russian military, which sharply differs in both capability and mindset from the old, Soviet-style force. It is capable of quickly projecting power far from Russian borders, widely uses drones and precision weapons, and cares about soldiers’ comfort. As part of President Vladimir Putin’s sweeping military modernization program , the air force received hundreds of new and modernized aircraft , all equipped with state-of-the art electronics on a par with U.S. and NATO jets. “ All aircraft here at the base are equipped with targeting systems that allow hitting targets with pinpoint precision,” said Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.-Gen. Igor Konashenkov.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - The West has been amazed at how Russia has improved its military know-how. Russia is demonstrating for the first time how far they have come in terms of technology and skill. Putin has invested billions into the army , navy and air force of Russia which enables him now to project force into the Middle East with ease. One headline this week said “ Russia’s naval encirclement of Syria ”. The report went on to detail how Russia has surrounded Syria with high tech warships - some of which launched cruise missiles hitting pin point targets 1500km away in Syria. The Bible said that the Russian leader ( Gog ) would prepare a vast army. The preparation has gone on in earnest for a decade. Russia is now showing the world what it can do. There is more to come.
EZEKIEL 38 v 7-8 NIV - " Get ready ; be prepared , you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war "
