IDF On War Alert: Iran-Syria-Hizballah War Of Attrition Threatened. U.S. Set To Act On Syria

On April 27, before Israel embarked on action against Syria, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov forged a new Russian alliance with Hizballah in Beirut. This was Putin’s answer to Obama’s direct appeal for a partnership in the effort to terminate the Syrian conflict.
Obama’s rejoinder was the green light he gave Israel to go for Iranian and Hizballah targets in Syria.
The claim by a “senior US intelligence official” that Israel did not apprise Washington before embarking on its Syrian operation does not hold water. The Netanyahu government might have embarked on a “justifiable” operation against advanced Iranian arms for Hizballah on its own, but would not have stuck its neck out to strike Syria’s elite troops on Mt. Qassioun without first clearing it with the Obama administration.
But the new direction now iddicated may derail Washington’s plan for a superpower deal to bring the horrendous Syrian crisis to a close. The local players, Khamenei, Assad and Nasrallah, are getting ready to grab the wheel and push the US and Israel off the driving seat.
Assad warned Moscow Monday of his plan for a war of attrition against Israel, using Palestinian fighters as cutouts, while Iran, Syria and Hizballah turned their missile batteries around to face Israel.
Having taken the calculated risk that Syria would be too busy with its own war to embark on a major reprisal, Israel Sunday night placed the country’s northern borders and region, including the big port town of Haifa - and its early warning systems - on the highest level of war alert, closed its northern airspace to civilian traffic for a couple of days, stationed Iron Dome anti-missile batteries at vulnerable points, and advised local authorities to go on standby.
All the parties concerned, from Washington and Moscow, to Jerusalem, Tehran, Damascus and Beirut, were waiting Monday on tenterhooks to see who made the next move.

Preparedness at Israeli embassies was stepped up on Sunday over fears that Hezbollah may stage an attack as retaliation for Israeli airstrikes on Syria over the weekend.
In Israel, requests for gas-mask kits were up fourfold as fears grew of a possible Syrian response, though officials said the likelihood of a Syrian response is low.

Is this Syria’s “doomsday ” weapon? Intelligence sources say that the Syrian air force has adapted an old Russian made MIG-21 fighter aircraft to fly unmanned and carry chemical warfare materials. This information is now being investigated by a number of intelligence organizations.
Syrian MiG-21, that landed in  Jordan in June 2011 flown by a Syrian air force colonel, had been adapted to fly unmanned and  carry a “deadly  volume of chemical weapons.
According to intelligence sources there are indications that Russian engineers helped with the upgrade.
The Syrian pilot colonel Hassan Hamada, took off in his MiG-21 from al-Dumair military airport northeast of Damascus and flew to King Hussein Air Base just across Syria’s southern border with Jordan. Upon landing in Jordan, Hamada removed his rank and requested political asylum.
The Syrian regime immediately admitted the pilot had defected and called him a traitor. But unlike in earlier defections Syria has put heavy pressure on Jordan to return the MIG-21.

 On a visit to the Pakistani capital Islamabad in 2006, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, then a Republican senator from Nebraska, warned that “a military strike against Iran, a military option, is not a viable, feasible, responsible option.”
Hagel reiterated that view in November 2007 in a speech to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank. “The answer to dealing with Iran will not be found in a military operation,” he cautioned.

And it isn’t just then-senator Hagel.
“We’ve thought about military options against Iran off and on for the last 20 years,” former top White House counterterrorism official Richard Clarke admitted that same year, “and they’re just not good, because you don’t know what the endgame is. You know what the first move of the game is, but you don’t know what the last move of the game is.”

That was six years ago, but it’s a view that hasn’t changed in much of Washington. American politicians regularly threaten Tehran with severe consequences for its pursuit of nuclear weapons, and habitually announce that “all options are on the table.” But privately, many concede there is little stomach in the US for yet another Middle Eastern war that could sink the country down a rabbit hole of unintended consequences and commitments.
It’s not that American leaders and planners, even the “realists” among them, disagree with Israel about the dangers posed by a nuclear Iran.
As Hagel himself noted in that 2007 speech, during what may have been his most skeptical and realist period, “In the Middle East of the 21st century, Iran will be a key center of gravity… and remain a significant regional power. The United States cannot change that reality….

Gods Word is so AMAZING and TRUE! This location of Iran Bushehr, Gods Word tells us that He will personally send them (Elam) to hell (Ezekiel 32) when He Judges them. That is their final destination.
It wouldn't surprise me, if the Lord God Almighty Himself wipes them out with an earthquake. Israel may not even have to attack Iran. Either way, that SPECIFIC area in Iran is soon to be Judged...

I was thinking something very similar Mrs. C yesterday and again today when I see Iran mentioned right along with Syria and Hezbollah in most every article. Something has to happen it seems to keep Iran from direct involvement in the Isaiah 17 war. They don't come to fight until Ezekiel 39.

Mrs.C said...

Hi Brother WV, :)
Good to see you Brother :) Yes indeed, Gods Word says that Iran is not involved in the Isaiah 17 war.
Yet in the immediate following Ezekiel 38 invasion, He does mention Iran. God lumps in Iran with all the other tag-a-longs that follow Gog. This tells us that Iran has been weakened. Something will happen to Iran for sure, between now, and the Ezekiel 38 invasion to take them down. Whether it be Israel attacking, or God letting loose a giant earthquake or something like that. It is just astounding to me, that thousands of years ago, God has Ezekiel write down the His Judgements to come (Chapters 25-32) against these nations surrounding Israel, and God is SPECIFIC enough to name the exact area in Iran where the Bushehr nuke plant is...WOW! just WOW! He even tells us the order that these nations will be sent to the "pit", eternal hell. His Word is just amazing! We Serve an AWESOME GOD!!!

God Bless!

there must be SOME TRUTH to the Zohar
prophecies in any event since ONLY
in the current Jewish year did the FP
come to power on 13 MARCH 2013...
is that correct >??

I think so....

so, extending that line of reasoning
then the AC could VERY WELL BE REVEALED in the near future.

I believe that will be the case....

Wall Street bulls continue their little GREED GAMES, buying stock
on and on.....

but then of course prophecies are
FAIRY TALES to bulls, please remember that....each time the
dow prints at records.

It may VERY WELL BE the rapture
that takes these bulls down, I mean something will get them
into a judgment mode where they

soon enough.

Robin said...

Dear Stephen . . .while I agree the Markets will undergo a huge correction when the Rapture occurs, the Bible clearly tells us, the identity of the AC will not be known until AFTER the Rapture.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-8
And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

Stephen said...

I agree Robin, but why do u CONTINUE
to argue with me ??

For all we know, that rapture could
be NEXT WEEK with AC revealed then
and there.

btw I think I know who it is....

Mr. Siljimassi of the UFM.....

"and one of the seven heads had
a fatal wound that appeared to be
healed "

I am NOT in the MOOD to argue with

Stephen I think you need to take a deep breath and take a break. I think you owe Robin an apology for the way you speak to her. You seem very angry..maybe with the world and the way things are NOT playing out to your ways you think it should be. Step back and read how you have been responding to some of these post. I too am feeling frustrated with life in this world now days also. I'm getting inpatient with things and people. But we must not act out in anger and disappointment..especial on our brothers and sisters. Each one of us has a different view on things now and to come. But, we all have one thing in common and that is, we are all waiting too. We must not argue on when or if the rapture is to come. Just be ready for it now or later....patience is a vertue. Jesus be with you brother while we wait..& me.

Syria, has all the fight they can handle right now. They won't be much of a retaliatory risk. But Iran on the other hand will call its factions into play from the Syrian side of the field. It is on now. This is the start of what we have been waiting for.
