In The News: Wars And Rumors Of War - 'Doomsday Scenario In Syria'

Days after the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad allegedly carried out a chemical attack in a Damascus suburb that killed hundreds of people, Western nations and their Arab allies are actively planning a military strike. This would be the first show of force by an outside power since the Syrian civil war began in March 2011, all Arab dailies lead off.

Assad came to an understanding with the United Nations that will allow an international fact-finding team to investigate the chemical attack as early as Monday. The Syrian government has publicly accused “terrorists,” or rebel forces, of launching the deadly attack.

Regardless of the conclusions the fact-finding team comes to, the leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, and France have already decided that Assad’s gesture is too little too late. The Syrian regime will already have had enough time to destroy crucial evidence.

Alexander Ukashevic, a spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, warned that “the repercussions would be severe on the White House if Russia’s red line on Syria was exceeded. . . There must be no effort to pre-impose the results of the investigation of UN experts. It must be rational because a mistake would be tragic.”
Despite the talk of military action against him, Assad too remains defiant, warning that “military intervention would only bring chaos and instability to the Middle East and the world.”

In an editorial published in A-Sharq Al-Awsat called “No politics with chemical weapons,” the paper opines that military intervention in Syria is no longer an option, but a duty.

The leading editorial in Al-Quds Al-Arabi states that, at this point, it is no longer important who carried out the chemical weapons attack. In a piece entitled “Doomsday scenario in Syria,” the paper argues that nothing other than military action can prevent Assad from continuing to subject his people to genocide.

Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets.
Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.
As the preparations gathered pace, William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, warned that the world could not stand by and allow the Assad regime to use chemical weapons against the Syrian people “with impunity”.
Britain, the US and their allies must show Mr Assad that to perpetrate such an atrocity “is to cross a line and that the world will respond when that line is crossed”, he said.
British forces now look likely to be drawn into an intervention in the Syrian crisis after months of deliberation and international disagreement over how to respond to the bloody two-year civil war.

A top Iranian military chief warned on Sunday that the US will face "harsh consequences" if it intervenes in ally Syria over claims of chemical attacks, Fars news agency reported.
"If the United States crosses this red line, there will be harsh consequences for the White House," armed forces deputy chief of staff Massoud Jazayeri was quoted as saying.
A year ago US President Barack Obama warned the use of chemical weapons in Syria would cross a "red line" and have "enormous consequences".

Iranian military leader warned Washington, its Western allies and Israel against playing with "fire".
"The terrorist war under way in Syria was planned by the United States and reactionary countries in the region against the resistance front (against Israel)," Fars quoted Jazayeri as saying.
"Despite this, the government and people of Syria have achieved huge successes.
"Those who add fire to the oil will not escape the vengeance of the people," added Jazayeri.

Here we go.  Again.  We are still the main target of the terror war, of which the leading sponsor is Iran.  The Assad regime in Damascus is a satrapy of Iran, as we are publicly told by both the Syrian insurrectionaries and the Iranian leaders, including The Great Moderate, President Rouhani.  There are thousands of Iranian killers in the front lines, hailing from the Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force and from Hezbollah, long the regime’s foreign legion. Iranian advisers tell Assad’s loyalists where and how to attack, and if the Syrians have indeed used chemical weapons, you can be sure the Iranians approved it, and were probably involved in the operations.

Iran is the engine of the Syrian bloodbath.  Remove Tehran’s killers, money, weapons, intelligence services and fanatical ideologues from the Syrian battlefield, and things will get better, perhaps much better.  And not only in the Middle East;  things will improve in Africa (talk to the Nigerians about that) and South and Central America.
How can so many policy makers, pundits, scribblers and babblers overlook Iran’s centrality?  And how can so many of them fail to recognize the enormous power of the ongoing revolt against the theological fascists who hold power in Tehran and who have just lost power in Cairo?  The uprising that defenestrated the Muslim Brothers in Egypt was the biggest mass demonstration in the history of the world, but the self-proclaimed deep thinkers debate whether it qualifies for “coup,” and suggest that the fascists should be given a share of power.
As the immortal Orwell reminds us, Winston Smith finally proclaimed “I love Big Brother.”  All too many of our corrupt elite are headed down that path.  Enough, already.  Don’t go to war against Eurasia yet again.  Fight the real war against the real enemy, with the lethal weapons our history has bequeathed us. No more Newspeak, tell it like it is:
Win in Damascus by supporting freedom in Tehran.

Britain is planning to join forces with America and launch military action against Syria within days in response to the gas attack believed to have been carried out by President Bashar al-Assad’s forces against his own people.
British Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalize a list of potential targets.
Government sources said talks between Prime Minister David Cameron and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.

A Royal Navy nuclear-powered submarine is said to be in the region while a number of warships recently left Britain for exercises in the Mediterranean.
Commanders may also need to make use of the RAF base at Akrotiri, Cyprus for air support.
If military action is approved, the first wave of missiles could start within a week.

Diplomatic pressure has not worked on Syria’s government, Britain’s Foreign Secretary William Hague said Monday, adding that a response to alleged chemical weapon use there is possible without complete unity in the United Nations Security Council.

Hague accused the Security Council of “not shouldering its responsibilities” over the Syria crisis, saying disagreements among the five members have prevented any action over Syria for too long.

“Is it possible to respond to chemical weapons without complete unity in the UN Security Council? I would argue yes it is,” Hague said an interview with the BBC.

“We cannot in the 21st century allow the idea that chemical weapons can be used with impunity,” he said in the statement — even as he conceded that the UN may not find enough evidence to give a conclusive result.

An Iranian commander warned the United States Sunday over a possible military move against the Tehran-backed regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The semi-official Fars news agency, which has close ties to Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard, quoted Gen. Masoud Jazayeri as warning that “trespassing over the red line in Syria will have severe consequences for the White House.”

Gen. Jazayeri did not provide details but said Washington is well aware of such red lines. He said the war in Syria is a product of a US plot and “regional reactionary” countries, a common reference to Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Scott, another very important (I think) piece of the puzzle is this. Hezbollah, Iran, lybia, hamas and all the other M.E. terror players want one common goal. They all have one life long aspiration, and that is the eradication of Israel. Of course Israel won't do anything to facilitate that attack. So then we have bashar assad. The dumb Syrian patsy. He probably has no idea that he is being used as a means to justify an all out strike on Israel. To the axis of evil, Syria is expendable. They want an attack on Syria.....and the plan most likely has worked....they will probably soon get it.

Breaking news - UN inspectors fired upon by snipers in Syria - I saw it on NBC website. Also, a mortar exploded near the Four Seasons Hotel where the inspectors were staying.

David said...

Hey , Elizabeth, I heard that this morning. That doesn't at all surprise me.

I would probably rank the U.S. inspectors job as number 2 on the list of jobs I wouldn't do. With Number 1 being the guy who went in with the fire hose to cool off the Fukushima nuclear reactor.

But yes, I can see things going down to the cellar from here on out. I'm waiting on someone to kill one of the inspectors as a means to get the U.N.s green light to light up Syria.

What boggles my mind through all this, is Israel's willingness to jump on this bandwagon with the Al Qaeda thugs trying to overthrow Assad, there's no question he's an unelected dictator . . .but he poses a much lesser threat to Israel than does the church burning, Christian killing, terrorist thugs that will replace him.

Through all this, I stand aghast, as I find myself siding not with the Israel I love, but with Russia who says the chemical weapons were used by the so called rebels in an attempt to drag the West into aiding their efforts.

In the end, this can only be the will of God . . .because absolutely nothing about any of this, makes any sense whatsoever. I marvel at how, no matter what, these things will all take place, regardless.

And I guess what this is teaching me, is that God is in control. History shows Israel's leaders have not always made the wisest of decisions. . .yet towards His great end, Israel triumphs through Him. Isaiah 17 warns that Northern Israel will sustain a great hit . . .and by crawling into bed with Al Qaeda in an effort to drag the US into a war that will cause the US to tangle with their arch enemy Iran, its becoming easier to fathom how all this will unfold.

It's more important than ever to spread the gospel . . .any day now, I expect that that last person to accept His beautiful Grace will fulfill the number only He knows, and our Wedding Day will be upon us . . .Holy! Holy! Holy!

Amen Robin! I have to agree Netanyahu's support of the US "party line" is perplexing. I guess he has little choice but to stay aligned with Obama. I seriously doubt Assad used the chemical weapons.

WVBORN56 said...

Mary I tried to post the other day on your "perhaps today" comment. Not sure what happened? Anyway thanks for thinking of me when you posted! :) I actually "borrowed" that line from my uncle who was faithful to regularly remind folks the rapture is imminent and can happen at any time.


Mrs.C said...

"Western military intervention in Syria
US will make legal case for striking Syria without UN approval"

Praying greatly to Him for the protection of our Men & Women that serve this great nation!

Robin said...

I honestly think Netanyahu could be thinking, the US isn't going to lift a finger to stop Iran's nuclear development so the only way he can pit the US against Iran is to entice the US into involvement in Syria.

One way or another, we know the US will be rendered an insignificant player in End Times events. It's becoming easier now to see why that's so.

Elizabeth said...

I keep scanning my computer for updates (as often as I can). I'm not sure how much longer I can hold my breath! I don't think I really perceived that I was going to be a witness to all of this when I read LATE, GREAT PLANET EARTH decades ago (thought my children/grandchildren would be - hey, they are! - thought I'd be Home by then, I guess). I am SO GLAD our Father warned us in His Word about all of this!!! Can you imagine what it would be like if we didn't have an idea of what was really going on??? Thank You, Lord Jesus, for so many things!

Robin said...

Syria is saying today, if the US strikes, they'll retaliate against Israel . . .Surprise? Russia and Iran are warning in unison not to strike. Meanwhile, the same Leftwing factions in the US who didnt want US in Iraq because of lack of proof of WMDs . . .stand strangely silent as their adored leader threatens invasion despite a lack of evidence that WMDs were used by the Syrian government. It's mind boggling how the press just accepts the word of Al Qaeda that those chemical weapons were used by the Syrian government . . .an entity that has nothing to gain and everything to lose by inviting the strong arm of America to descend on them. It's just nuts.

David H said...

Elizabeth - I'm doing the exact same, the next few days will be very interesting,
It could kick off pretty soon...
All we can do is spread the Gospel...

From Drudge:

"Bombing in Days"

"Israel Distributes Gas Masks"

I'd be looking for some level 1 hazmat suits as well, to go along with the gas masks.

Just saw John Kerry speech. Strange but the whole time I kept thinking how he sounded like Darryl Issa on Benghazi. How the Syrian Gov't was not forthcoming and made them wait 5 days to check the site out, how they were anything but transparent and if they were innocent why the ruse?Same argument, different offense.
Pray for the Syrians. For the believers still there and for those who must be filled with doubt over what they believe.

Alice said...

In such an upside-down world, I just gotta say that I LOVE the picture at the top of Drudge right now!

Here's another big shocker. Palestinian s call off peace talks because Israeli solder defends himself.

Stephen said...

It would appear that the ONLY person that can bring even a TEMP period of peace this side of the
Millenium is the anti christ.

and his time may be very close.
with the IDF killing three Arabs
the stage is set.

9 13 13

6 months after the FP gets revealed.

will I be right this time ??

we will see.

if AC gets revealed then.

stocks are heading down. Syria
is being used as the trigger
according to MSM.

down less then 100 but still down.

I think only the AC can clean up
this mess at this point.

Mr. Westerwelle ??

we will see.

Stephen >>>>>>>>>>>

Stephen said...

Scott, please go to DEBKA right articles are out for reading.

IF I AM RIGHT about 13 SEP 2013,
then AC revealing is very close.

I have SAID ALL ALONG that the number
13 is very important in this end game.

I will continue to believe that.

we will see.

but why did FP get revealed on
3 13 13 ??

it is VERY CLEAR that there is
meaning here.

Stephen >>>>>>>>>>>

Robin said...

Stephen, what is FP?

I honestly don't put any value in numbers, other than those we're told in the Bible (ie. 666) but it's worth pointing out that the majority f the world lists Day/Month/year, in that order . . .but most importantly . . .God has given the world only one calendar and it wasn't the Catholic Gregorian one we observe today. God's timing is not our timing and dates that tie in with a calendar in the US, has nothing to do with God's Calendar and when He will deal with Israel.

Robin said...

That DEBKA story must be some humdinger . . .I've tried to log in using three different browsers and have timed out all three. Anyone else able to get in?

Stephen said...

I will believe what I believe,
others can say what they want.
When 13 SEP comes and AC takes
over, DO NOT say i did NOT warn you
Robin. FP is the False Prophet

Debka is just fine, i have been there
for hours off and on....

no problems.

DEBKA is actually done in Hebrew and then transferred over to English. They're probably having a glitch in their system right now.

Robin said...

Now I'm in . . .but still curious about the Hebrew text I saw before. Is DEBKA an Israeli news service?

Robin said...

Thanks, Audio . . .I've been a DEBKA reader for a couple of years but didnt realize it was Israeli. I knew there was a reason I liked them LOL. Glad you cleared up the mystery

AudioOutlaw said...

Yeah, if you're on the site look at the menu bar and you'll see a Hebrew button, it'll take you to the original site.

Stephen said...

yeh, Robin, you are right, I went
back and saw this strange language
but then just 2 MIN ago it is back to

Scott, please go here right away...

are these the ten kings ??

the news, coming VERY fast.....
