Zero Hedge: The American people are really going to regret putting the warmongers back in control. Joe Biden has been in the White House for less than two months, and the warmongers that Biden has surrounded himself with have been feverishly setting the stage for the next war in the Middle East. I do not believe that it will start within the next week, but I do believe that it is inevitable.
While President Trump was in the White House for four years, the U.S. didn’t start any new conflicts, but now the Biden administration is quite determined to start projecting “American influence” all over the globe once again. Most Americans don’t understand the bigger picture, but the truth is that this is going to have very serious implications over the next few years.
#1 Literally one day after Biden was inaugurated, a massive U.S. military convoy rolled into Syria…
#2 Just a few weeks later, Joe Biden conducted his first airstrike against Iranian-backed forces inside Syria…
#3 Of course it was inevitable that Iranian-backed forces would respond, and they retaliated by launching rockets at a military base in Iraq where U.S. forces are stationed.
#4 More U.S. airstrikes may come sooner rather than later. In fact, it is being reported that the U.S. has just sent six B-52 bombers to Diego Garcia…
#5 The Biden administration is also sending approximately 10,000 more U.S. troops to the Middle East…
#6 Russia has been busy making moves in the region as well.
#7 Meanwhile, Israel continues to hit strategically important targets inside Syria on a regular basis.
#8 Israel is particularly interested in keeping Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
#9 During a phone call last Thursday between Kamala Harris and Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister made it exceedingly clear that his nation is ready to do whatever it takes to prevent the Iranians from developing their own nukes…
Opinion: The particular focus the Biden team has on Syria brings an ancient prophecy to mind that could be the catalyst for an Arab invasion of Israel.
The Burden of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1, 4, 14)
v.1: “A message concerning Damascus. Observe! Damascus is about to be undone as a city.”
v.4: “In that day it shall come to pass that the glory of Jacob will wane, And the fatness of his flesh grow lean.” (Israeli casualties)
v.14: “At evening tide, lo, terror! Before morning they are gone. Such is the fate of those who pillage us and the lot of those who plunder us.”
Damascus, the capital of Syria, is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world, population approximately 2.079 million.
Although Damascus was conquered many times in history, and the city was partially destroyed in 732 BC when the Assyrians defeated the Armenians, the city was never totally destroyed.
Syria is the state sponsor of the terror group Hezbollah and Hezbollah is mentioned in the prophesied Psalm 83:7 war as the “inhabitants of Tyre” (ancient name for Lebanon).
