Russia To Set Up Naval Base In Cuba?

The Cold War is alive and well. Russia is most definitely flexing their muscles, as we see in the articles below:

Naval chief confirms talks with Cuba, Vietnam and the Seychelles about setting up overseas facilities for Russian ships

Russia is talking to Cuba, Vietnam and the Seychelles about housing Russian navy ships, its naval chief has said.

Vice-admiral Viktor Chirkov told the RIA Novosti state news agency Russia was in talks with the three countries about setting up maintenance and supply facilities but would not give further details.

But relations with Washington deteriorated and Putin, who was re-elected to a third term in March, has grown increasingly eager to challenge Washington. During his election campaign, he accused the US of encouraging protest against his 12-year rule in order to weaken Russia and pledged to strengthen the nation's military might.

Hi Brother Scott, :)
Whew...Russia can make all the plans they want, but the Almighty God of Israel has other plans for them and we know from His Word what that is!!! God tells us that His "My fury shall come up in My Face" regarding them...whew...they are in for certain destruction!

Ezekiel 38:18
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.

Ezekiel 39:4-6
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the Lord.

I wonder how the naval build up on this side of the Atlantic Ocean ties in with the US-Russan military training that took place earlier this year in Colorado?

Praying for wisdom from God for all His children through out the world and for all His children to grow deeper in their faith in God. Thank you, Jesus for laying down Your life as the perfect sacrifice to give us new life and to free us from sin! Maranatha!
