CLASH OF THE SUPER-POWERS ? Risk of Proxy War, Russia warns

SYRIA - Russia has warned of the risk of a " proxy war " in the Middle East after the US said it would send special forces to Syria. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said this increased the need for co-operation between the US and Russia. US officials said " fewer than 50 " troops would " train, advise and assist " vetted opposition forces in fighting the so-called Islamic State (IS). It will be the first time that US troops operate openly in Syria. Mr Lavrov said the US had decided on its move " unilaterally and without any reference to the Syrian leadership ”. He added: " I am convinced that neither the United States nor Russia of course want any kind of slide into a so-called proxy war. But to me it is obvious that this situation makes the task of co-operation between the militaries even more relevant.” He was speaking after talks with US Secretary of State John Kerry and UN envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura in Vienna.

PROPHECY INSIGHTS - The day after the talks both sides showed that they were determined to fight on. America announced it would be sending special forces into Syria to help the rebels. Russia then warned of a “ proxy war ”. Russia is saying that America and Russia could end up being at war with each other through the different armed forces they are supporting in Syria. The real point is that a proxy war is underway right now. America is pushing back at Russia’s recent involvement in Syria. Although it is a small step it is supposed to send a reassuring message to America’s unsettled allies and show Russia they are not going to back down. Events in Syria are reaching a critical stage. Something will happen to drag Israel into this conflict. Isaiah 17 says this clearly. The removal of Syria as a nation will create the vacuum into which Russia will descend. Ezekiel 38 comes after Isaiah 17 v 1-5.

ISAIAH 17 v 4 - " And in that day it shall come to pass , that the glory of Jacob ( Israel ) shall be made thin , and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean. And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm ; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim. "

Notice that Israel is made thin / lean in the day that Syria fails as a nation. This is still to happen.
