Syrian Army Vows To Remove All U.S. Troops From Syria

Syrian Army Vows to Remove All US Troops From Syria

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has responded negatively to the US pledge to create a new “border” force in northern Syria of some 30,000 US-backed fighters, saying not only are they violating Syrian sovereignty, but the Syrian Army’s goal must be to end the US presence in the country outright.
Syria has long opposed the US military presence in the country, which was deployed without Syrian permission, and which Pentagon officials say will last long after the outright defeat of ISIS.
Whether the Syrians can do anything about it is another matter. The US presence in Syria is substantial, and backed by a large, heavily-armed Kurdish force. Despite the US deployment being plainly illegal, there’s no practical way to remove them by force.
It’s curious that the Syrian state media made it clear the position was that of the military, as made by the foreign ministry, suggesting the two ministries may not necessarily be on the same page with rhetoric about the US presence.

Scott, what do you think about this unbelievable, historical stock market?...any correlation to...well you know what I mean...I wonder if Stephen has been commenting...when he use to post, he always commented about the market.

Scott said...

I think it has to crash or be "corrected" at some point.....Just based on the past. It may be a post-rapture event however - Terry James has been making some good points about the gathering up coming in normal times, which I agree with. Ole Stephen comes around occasionally - he knows its basically private notes to me - basically tying the Rapture to the stock market which I never understood. Ive grown to actually like him and its been a while since I heard from him, I guess every couple of months I get a note.

Have to respectfully disagree, these are anything but "normal times", and God makes that clear. He makes it clear, that just one of many components, is the rise of evil in this world.

Normal in the sense of not being in the Trib - people are still going to work, still giving into marriage, we aren't being forced into the MOTB etc....Normal considering we are in the birth pains stage

Forgive me again, but the Rapture isn't based on "signs", but rather is imminent. :)The "signs" or "birth pains" are for the Churches observation, telling us the nearness of the Trib.
To the "world", they see things as "normal" (maybe not as many), we see it differently. People will still be "working" during the Trib, and celebrating marriage. Over History, when evil was rampant, people still "worked" & still got "married". Hitler even got married during complete chaos, death and destruction.
Even present day, not all people are working, and that includes Christians.Does that mean its "normal" for them? What level of unemployment would quantify normal or not normal in order to comply? That fluctuates constantly, and to those struggling without jobs, it is not "normal" times, but rather awful times.
Marriage has continued through the centuries, during severally evil times and good times.
That is why it is not about "marriage" or "employment", wealth etc. It is about the rise of evil in mens hearts,to a level never seen before, and the swift Judgement to come during the Trib.
Genesis 6:1-8
6 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.

3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive[a] with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

5 Then the Lord[b] saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Life right now is relatively normal in industrialized states...During the Tribulation things will be radically different and life won't be what we see as "normal". Thats my simplistic view :)
