Air Strikes On Syria?

We could be rapidly approaching another tipping point:

President Barack Obama has told the US Navy and Air Force to prepare air strikes on Syria as part of a “no fly zone” that will be enforced with the aid of British and French military power, according to a report.

“Their mission will be to knock out Assad’s central regime and military command centers so as to shake regime stability and restrict Syrian army and air force activity for subduing rebel action and wreaking violence on civilian populations,”

Having threatened military action for months, the United States was apparently encouraged by the fact that Russia is once again backing down from its harsh rhetoric and indicating that it will not oppose the toppling of President Bashar Al-Assad.

The likelihood of military intervention has been brought forward by reports that opposition rebels are planning to use chemical weapons and then blame the atrocity on Assad’s regime.

Hostility towards Syria from the international community has intensified in recent weeks, particularly after the recent massacre in Houla which was blamed on Assad’s forces despite the fact that eyewitnesses in Houla said opposition rebels were responsible for the slaughter, which killed 108 people – mostly women and children.

“A respected mainstream publication, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), has reported that the infamous Houla massacre in Syria, which the US and NATO hoped would be the casus belli for their planned invasion, was in fact carried out by rebel forces,” writes McAdams.

As we reported last weekend, the presence of Syrian National Transitional Council head Bassma Kodmani at the recent Bilderberg confab of global power brokers in Chantilly Virginia strongly suggested that a military assault on Syria was nearing.

US air strikes on Syria will be launched without Congressional approval, just as Obama green lighted the attack on Libyawith a churlish disregard for the constitutional process. US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has repeatedly stated that Congressional authorization for a military assault on Syria will not be sought by the Obama administration, which considers NATO and the UN to be the supreme authority.

The same “humanitarian” bloodbath inflicted on Libya, which went from the most prosperous country in Africa to a sectarian nightmare ruled by brigades of armed thugs, now awaits Syria unless the likes of China and Russia back up their rhetoric with any real action, a scenario that is becoming increasingly unlikely with each passing day.

Also see:

Bashar Assad’s chemical weapon stockpile could fall into the hands of Syrian rebels, which would threaten Israeli national security, Deputy Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Yair Naveh warned.

“Syria’s chemical arsenal is the world’s largest, and it possesses missiles that can target the entirety of Israel’s territory,” Naveh said Sunday at a memorial event in Jerusalem honoring soldiers who fell in the Lebanon War.

Naveh’s statements regarding chemical weapons and missiles came shortly after Syrian rebels reportedly commandeered a Syrian air force base near the city of Homs and took possession of a number of surface-to-air missile batteries.

Mortified is probably more descriptive of my feelings, that and an absolute sickening revulsion at what is being done in the name of so-called “Democracy.” If you were not already aware of it, Obama has appointed Senator John Kerry as the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. That’s right, Mr. Swiftboat himself is now doing internationally what he did in the US. Local treason just wasn’t enough – no, he went global.

...he is proclaiming that the Arab Spring was wildly successful. He has also come to genuflect at the feet of the Muslim Brotherhood who will soon hold bloody reign over that country. Rule that will prove to be even worse than Mubarak and a virtual death sentence for every Coptic Christian in the country.

And Kerry has already signaled that the US will deal with the new Islamic leader of Egypt with no bias or preconceptions. Well, how very dhimmi of him, groveling on his knees to the Islamic fascists helping to usher in a new worldwide Caliphate. Knowing Kerry, it is right in character and totally expected. Obama and Kerry have innocent blood all over their hands already with the recent murders of Copts and other Christians in Egypt.

This is about power and control and the US is actively aligning itself with the Muslim Brotherhood under the Obama Administration. Our leaders have met with CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood hundreds of times in the White House during this Presidency. Do the math.
Lets recall some facts:

  • May 2009 – While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan.
  • April 2010 – Christian leader Franklin Graham is disinvited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer Event because of complaints from the Muslim community.
  • April 2010 – The Obama administration requires rewriting of government documents and a change in administration vocabulary to remove terms that are deemed offensive to Muslims, including jihad, jihadists, terrorists, radical Islamic, etc.
  • August 2010 – Obama speaks with great praise of Islam and condescendingly of Christianity.
  • August 2010 – Obama went to great lengths to speak out on multiple occasions on behalf of building an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero, while at the same time he was silent about a Christian church being denied permission to rebuild at that location.
  • 2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.
  • October 2011 – Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House.
  • February 2012 – The Obama administration makes effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do.

And who do these actions hurt the most? Israel.

Having already won control of the Egyptian parliament, and with a good chance of putting their man in the president's chair as Egyptians go to the polls later this week, the Muslim Brotherhood is now turning its gaze on Israel.

Secular presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq warned last week that if his Muslim Brotherhood opponent, Mohammed Mursi, wins the run-off presidential vote giving the Islamists unfettered control in Egypt, conflict with Israel will be inevitable.

A prominent Egyptian cleric with ties to the Brotherhood added to those fears last week when he told a large rally that should Mursi win the election, Egypt's capital will no longer be Cairo, but rather Jerusalem.

A Muslim Brotherhood victory "will make Israel weaker and more isolated. Israel will have no friends or alliances left in this region," Hamas spokesman Ghazi Hamad told the Los Angeles Times last week.

Even before the feared Brotherhood takeover, there are already signs Egypt is returning to a position of outright hostility toward Israel.

Also in the news - from around the world:

The following articles are perplexing at best:

Once again, just mind boggling news.Just incredible .

I read the article about the radiation spikes. The fact that the EPA shut down the online monitors is pretty darn scary. The only reason they would feel the need to do that is because the levels are so incredibly high. Where oh where is the media..Just blows me away.

It would be mind boggling to say the least, if Obama does a Hiroshima on Damascus, thus fulfilling Is. 17!

Susan said...

As I see it, any large scale attack on Syria by virtually anyone will trigger Assad to unlease his chemical arsenal on Israel. Israel will respond with nuclear weapons, specifically taking out Damascus (Isaiah 17). It wouldn't surprise me at all if the U.S. were the catalyst for all of this, but I don't think we will be the ones to take out Damascus.

Scott said...

Susan - thats pretty much how I see it, at this point

What is next in prophesy after the Isaiah 17? What is next in line?

Mrs.C said...

(Ooops - posted this below instead of here)
Isaiah 17 is the beginning of God turning back to His People. It is all about Israel and God. He will bring them to their knees. It begins with Israel striking Damascus to the state of ruins. Then the dominos begin to fall. Jordan is next in Verse 2, followed by the West Bank in Verse 3. We also know from the second portion of Verse 3. that it is Israel that has attacked Damascus.
Then, something horrendous happens to Israel, as God describes the "desolation" that will occur, and God tells us why He allows this to happen to His People. When the surrounding enemies of Israel attempt to rush in to finish Israel off, is when God steps in. From that moment forward, is the beginning of the return of God to His People. The fullness of His Return to them will occur in the quickly to follow Ezekiel 38-39 war. This Ezekiel 38 war will be the retaliatory act that Gog (Russia)will commence with, as God Himself has orchestrated to happen.

This was an article from the other day, that the IDF is predicting that Assad will stay in power until 2013. We know that is very unlikely to happen the way things are going, but the STUNNING part of this article is that the IDF believes that Assad “ while Assad may lose control of certain cities, he, his army will remain controlling Damascus” WOW! Narrows it down to where? DAMASCUS! And we know that for years, Bibi has said Israel will hold DAMASCUS responsible for ANY attacks on Israel be it from Syria or Lebanon.

“IDF Assessment Predicts Assad In Power Through 2013”

We also have the IDF Chief of Staff stating that Israel is “Super read” to take on Iran.
Personally, I have never over many years, ever heard the IDF make such a statement as “super-ready”. Whew!
“Gantz: Israel Super-Ready to Attack Iran if Needed”

Amazing, amazing that God has allowed each one of us to be so Blessed, so privileged as to be born into this Generation, at the edge of time...WOW!

God Bless!

(BTW Brother Scott – someone is attempting to use your blog to advertise on the previous days post -Sunday, June 10, 2012 The Middle East Tipping Points)

thanks Mrs. C. wow. that is amazing. We are so very close to the end of this age as we know it. So close to being with the Lord. I agree we are blessed to be here for this.

I wish I were as smart as you guys! lol. I love bible prophesy and watching the events that are taking place. But, I sometimes get them all mixed up. I thank God for my brothers and sisters like you and Scott that keep me straight on these events prophesied in the Bible. THank again!


Dave DU said...

With this aligning that Obama is doing with the Muslims, and being a leader of the pseudo free world, do you think he will allow himself to be the catalyst for the Muslims to sweep over the world and enforce Sharia law?

I watched a video of a Christian's beheading the other night and if Islam is to take the world well then it's only by God's grace that Christians stand a chance.

I know Jehovah is in charge ultimately and any persecution is designed to make the Christian worthy of His Kingdom, but could this be the way Christians are put to the sword; through Islam?

ive pondered that many many times....its deeper and more complex than first also gets into how much power and influence islam will have during tribulation...and thats a big i consider the following...

Anonymous said...

The only religion in the second half of trib will b worship of we are in the rhelm of the first half of trib...after gog magog islam will b significantly i dunno....i think the ac adapts this as his own form of intimidation and he and the FP institute this rather than islam...thats my 2 Cents worth:)

Anonymous said...

Of course its much nore complicated...i actually to some degree find the premise that the ac coming in as the islamic mahdi intriguing and there are some intetesting parallels with that....not sayong i believe it but very interesting...


Anonymous said...

Funny you say that Scott. I was thinking that same thing today. Hmmm..It is interesting.

Mike said...

Just a couple cents worth here...I used to think the muslims would believe the AC is their Mahdi....(and that could very well be)...BUT, in the back of my mind lately, it seems to make a lot of sense that Islam itself will be defeated, or at least be diminished to become irrelevant...When the wars coming up happen, they are primarily all muslim nations, and they will be severely defeated. Also, Islam doesnt strike me as being open to including all 'religions' under one umbrella. However, the Roman Catholic Church would be all over that (the 'new' upcoming pope, et. al.) Of course, this goes into a whole 'nother discussion....:)

Mrs.C said...

I too saw the correlation between the Islamic terrorist’s behavior over recent years and the Martyred Trib Saints. (even teaching Mexican gangs in Mexico the same thing).
It seems to me though, that what we are seeing God Himself doing right now, will decimate the Islam cult of death. God is allowing nations surrounding Israel, to have the evilest of evil, rise to the surface, and then He will wipe them out. I believe there is a good possibility that when God “rebukes” the enemy nations “rushing” in to try to finish off Israel at the end of the Isaiah 17 war, that He may very well fulfill in that “Rebuke” His Final Judgments of them that Ezekiel speaks of in Chapters 25-32. Those nations are
Jordan, Gaza, Lebanon, and Egypt. With those nations decimated by God, I don’t believe that Islam in the ME will be relevant.
The ac will come out of the revived Roman Empire I believe. Most important, he will not be of the Islamic cult faith, nor do I believe that the Islamic belief will be relevant, especially after the above mentioned.. Why? We know the Temple will be rebuilt, and NO ONE objects, that includes the ac. JMHO :)

God Bless!

Mrs.C said...

And oh yeah, one more thing...
Europe is very familiar with the process of beheading...just look at the history of the Brits and the French...

Dave DU said...

Thanks guys for all your input. For the sake of those still here I hope your right. Death isn't to be feared but it's the 30-45 secs of the way it happens that's frightening.
A guillotine is much more preferred.

Caver said...

Yikers....good point Dave...but, if its all the same to you guys...I think I'll just move on in the big "Poof".

It don't violate nothing in my "anti-pain" code of ethics. :smile

Mike said...

Im with you Caver.....thats the ticket I'm signed up for ;)

Sorry for the late update, i want to get my facts in order. THERE ARE
two possibilities going forward
on the EWI counts.

(1) We made a HIGH this am on the
dow at 12 752 on the JUN Futures
and NOW we crash since the 2 top
is in......


(2) We need to go BACK UP again
since the rally was NOT ENOUGH
in terms of time....although
price levels were achieved.


Hey, i have no idea. i will let
the market be the judge on that.


Any, and I mean ANY violation of
DOW 12, 100 going forward will lead
to an IMMEDIATE 3 down and a
subsequent crash...minimum
expectations for said crash
would be a MINIMUM of 2000 dow
points on the DOWNSIDE.

Greater bearish potential exists,
needless to say.


One could make the case that we
CRASH right from here which would
mean 17 - 19 Isaiah at the DOOR.

Early on this year I was quite
BULLISH if you recall, but no longer.

The rapture ??

Hey do you know, do I know ??

that could be a REASON for the crash coming, very hard to say
but it is possible, I have said
that before.
