Why America Should Stay Out of Syria
Two years ago I posted this on my blog.
The prophet Jeremiah saw the future destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple after he had warned the people to mend their ways they continued down the road of destruction. After the death of Josiah, the people reverted to idolatry and spiritual depravity and the loss of their moral standard. Very few enjoyed the message of Jeremiah and his warning that the direction the country was going would result in a judgment of God. The end result-judgment came, and Jeremiah was right.
The message today is one that many do not want to hear, but it is important that it be given. I am not a prophet but understand how Jeremiah felt when everyone thought he was the enemy. I know there are those who don't want to see these posts or hear any facts, but putting your head in the sand doesn't help anything but the subjugation of America to Muslim Brotherhood, jihadists, terrorists and the global elitist who are manipulating all parties involved in the conflicts around the world. Progressive don't want this information shared because it keeps them successful in bullying and manipulating Americans, but the truth has a way of getting out. I have chosen to share the information to try and educate my friends about the progressives and neocons and their threat to American freedom. It is not a Republican or Democrat agenda that we should be concerned about it is the survival of freedom as we know it today. There are those in both political parties who have sold their power and influence to those who would destroy this country.
The American people have allowed our government to shape public opinion with its false morality of protecting the innocent from a morally corrupt leader or providing humanitarian aid to an oppressed people or fighting terror as an excuse to become involved in that country’s problems. Americans bought into the WMD argument to go into Iraq. We justified the war in Afghanistan by going after Osama. We justify the drone attacks on the Pakistani people by killing al-Qaida leaders. In every case, we killed vast numbers of people. In Iraq over 600,000 have been killed, some have this number exceeding one million. In 2012 the number of Iraqi children under 18 who had lost one or both parents was between 800,000 and one million.
The Christians in Iraq were one of the oldest surviving communities in the world. They totaled about 1,500,000 in 2003. By 2010 people were stopped on the street and asked for identity cards if they had Christian names they were shot on the spot. Christians were legitimate targets. Christian persecution was happening while the United States military was occupying Iraq. Persecution was so terrible that half of the Christian population fled to Syria. I find it odd that Christians would go to a country we are now ready to bomb because Assad is so wicked. What do they know we do not?
How did American involvement make it better for the people in Iraq? We destroyed their homes, hospitals, schools and infrastructure, in the end, the very people we were fighting in Afghanistan are now taking over Iraq. We destroyed a nation on the pretense of bringing democracy to the oppressed people of Iraq. In reality, they were better off under Saddam Hussein.
Under the democratically-elected government that now oversees the war-torn nation, branches of the Muslim Brotherhood are free to operate. Persecution is a by-product of the war; there is an intolerance for other religions. Not only has this been happening in Iraq but other countries where the US government is involved in bringing democracy. Al Qaeda has been strategically targeting Iraqi Christians - even issuing a warning to all Christians to leave the country.
Only one Catholic Church remains in Afghanistan, and it must be heavily protected. In Egypt and Libya, where demonstrators overthrew dictators in recent years, Christians have come under heavy persecution. It is clear that where the US government is involved with terrorist organizations mainly the Muslim Brotherhood, the result is an unholy alliance- Christians are dying.
The impact of the US going into Syria will no doubt create an economic burden on the American taxpayer. The additional cost of war will increase the debt, raise the price of oil and put Americans in greater danger around the world. That is not to count the number of lives lost, families destroyed, and some children made orphans by our actions. How can we justify a war against a nation that has done nothing to us? How can we bomb a country that has not declared war on us? The conflict is between Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood not Syria and the United States. If we remove Assad from power, just as we did Saddam Hussein, who will replace him? The Muslim Brotherhood has tried for years to remove Assad and has failed; will the United Stated be the bully arm of the Brotherhood to do what they could not do?
Just as Christians in Iraq fled to Syria because of the al Qaeda jihadist, Syrian Christians are again fleeing their homes. Christians in Syria have not been spared from the violence; in fact, they have been targeted by the rebels. Syria has become a dangerous place for Christians who have been given the ultimatum to leave; this threat is echoed daily by the mosques. Christians have expressed concerns over who will take over the country once Assad is removed from office. When the Muslim Brotherhood takes over Syria Christians will again be murdered in the streets and driven from their homes. Who will speak for them?
Since 2001, the U.S. has undertaken regime change in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya. All three countries are now in and extremists are . In Iraq, hardcore Islamic jihadis known as ISIS have taken over much of the country.
Libya has also descended into absolute chaos. Al Qaeda is now largely in control of Libya. Al Qaeda flags fly over the Benghazi courthouse. Is it any wonder our State Department does not want to talk about Libya? It should be remembered that the U.S. State Department helped sow the seeds of chaos in several ways. Not only did we engage in direct military intervention against Gadafi, but also – so that they would help topple Gaddafi.
In Afghanistan, the 0pium production is at an all-time high under the American occupation of Afghanistan. And the New York Times reports that the Taliban are currently making huge gains in Afghanistan. Hillary Clinton is on record saying that the U.S. carried out regime change in in the 1970s by backing Bin Laden and the Mujahadin, the precursor to Al Qaeda. And look how it turned out. The U.S. imposed regime change in Afghanistan has left the country in chaos.
The U.S. carried out regime change in Iran in 1953 … which led to radicalization in the country. Specifically, the CIA admits that the U.S. overthrew the moderate, suit-and-tie-wearing, Democratically-elected prime minister of Iran in 1953. He was overthrown because he had nationalizes Iran’s oil, which had previously been controlled by BP and other Western oil companies. As part of that action, the CIA admits that it hired Iranians to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran to turn the country against its prime minister.
If the U.S. been known for thousands of years for tolerating Christians and other minority religions. Both Democrats and been pushing for of regime change in Iran. overthrown the moderate Iranian government, the fundamentalist Mullahs would have . Iran has
The next regime change is Syria. The U.S. has heavily backed the Islamic rebels in Syria in an attempt to implement regime change in that country. The result? And the jihadis are now crucifying, beheading, and cutting the throats of Christians. Remember when Christians fled Iraq they went to Syria to find safety.
Is it just my imagination or has the U.S. government given power to Sunni Muslims to overthrown the Shia Muslims? Every country where a regime change has occurred we have sided with the Sunnis who are a fundamentalist. The Shias are secular and were tolerant of other religions.
Why Syria is The Battleground for Global Control Today
In the Book of Revelation, we have the opening of the seven seals. These seals are in relationship to what is happening now, not in the future. Notice what the apostle John saw with the breaking of the second seal: “When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, ‘Come and see.’ Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword” (Revelation 6:3-4 ).
This vision corresponds with Christ’s prophecy of the end time recorded in Matthew 24: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” (Matthew 24:6-7 ).
The record of history shows a pattern of the red horse of war often following the white horse of false religion. What can we expect to see as this red horse of war rides across the landscape in the last days, unleashing the fury of nations on the world?
In the last days, the Bible tells us, a horrible series of events will take place in the lands of Israel and Syria. One of these events is the disappearance of Damascus as one of the premiere cities in the world. The oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet, Damascus has witnessed at least five thousand years of human history, and some historians believe the city dates back to the seventh-millennium bc.
In the very near future, Damascus will once again play a major role in human events. The prophet Isaiah provides us with God's commentary on a future conflict between Damascus and Israel, and in so doing, He reveals certain prophecies that have been partially fulfilled in the past. However, the ultimate fulfillment of Isaiah 17 remains in the future. The current existence of Damascus, which will one day cease to be a city, as well as the historical absence of the coalition of nations prophesied to attack Israel and be destroyed by God, is proof that Isaiah 17 prophesies events yet future.
"This message came to me concerning Damascus: 'Look, Damascus will disappear! It will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted. Sheep will graze in the streets and lie down unafraid. There will be no one to chase them away. The fortified cities of Israel will also be destroyed, and the power of Damascus will end. The few left in Aram will share the fate of Israel's departed glory,' says the Lord Almighty" (Isaiah 17:1-3, NLT).
These opening verses paint a bleak picture. The city of Damascus will become a heap of ruins, utterly destroyed. Few, if any, buildings will be left standing. The once great city will be devoid of human life and will become home to all manner of wildlife in the absence of humans to chase them away. According to these verses, the cities of Aroer, which are located on the northern bank of the Arnon River just east of the Dead Sea, will also be deserted. However, the passage doesn't say they will be destroyed in the same manner as Damascus, just that they will be deserted. It may be that people simply flee these cities out of fear or it could be from nuclear fallout.
Also, many of the fortified cities in northern Israel will also be destroyed. The few who remain in Aram, thirty-eight miles south-southeast of Damascus, will share the fate of these northern Israeli cities.
"'In that day the glory of Israel will be very dim, for poverty will stalk the land. Israel will be abandoned like the grain fields in the valley of Rephaim after the harvest. Only a few of its people will be left, like the stray olives left on the tree after the harvest. Only two or three remain in the highest branches, four or five out on the tips of the limbs. Yes, Israel will be stripped bare of people,' says the Lord, the God of Israel" (Isaiah 17:4-6, NLT).
The breadth and scope of destruction are clearly illustrated as God describes the Israeli landscape as stripped bare of people. Only a small fraction of people either choose to stay in the land or else survive what is a massive holocaust, leaving only a few inhabitants who struggle in poverty.
"Then, at last, the people will think of their Creator and have respect for the Holy One of Israel. They will no longer ask their idols for help or worship what their own hands have made. They will never again bow down to their Asherah poles or burn incense on the altars they built" (Isaiah 17:7-8, NLT).
Knowing that this will happen, we must ask: Why does it happen? The answer is found in the verses that follow:
"Their largest cities will be as deserted as overgrown thickets. They will become like the cities the Amorites abandoned when the Israelites came here so long ago. Why? Because you have turned from the God who can save you--the Rock who can hide you. You may plant the finest imported grapevines, and they may grow so well that they blossom on the very morning you plant them, but you will never pick any grapes from them. Your only harvest will be a load of grief and incurable pain" (Isaiah 17:9-11, NLT).
The devastation that overshadows Israel will come about because Israel has "turned from the God who can save them." All the hard work performed before this event will be lost. Those who have been distracted by the things of this world will be disappointed, for they have forgotten God, and by putting faith in the things of this world, they will ultimately be disappointed. Their only harvest will be "a load of grief and incurable pain." This grief will be brought to a climax when, in the midst of their suffering, the nation of Israel faces an imminent invasion:
"Look! The armies rush forward like waves thundering toward the shore. But though they roar like breakers on a beach, God will silence them. They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind or like dust whirling before a storm. In the evening Israel waits in terror, but by dawn its enemies are dead. This is the just reward of those who plunder and destroy the people of God" (Isaiah 17:12-14, NLT).
While Syria and Israel lie in ruin, the enemies of Israel will view her suffering as an opportunity to invade, their ultimate goal to destroy her forever. However, God has a different plan in mind, and He will destroy these invaders Himself. A more in-depth illustration of this attack is foreseen in Psalms 83:
By studying the geographical history of these ancient people and places, we can uncover which nations they currently compose. According to Psalms 83, in the aftermath of the destruction of northern Israel and Damascus, Israel will be invaded by armies from Jordan, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, and Gaza. All of these locations are heavily populated by the enemies of Israel today.
Syria is an ancient land with its capital, Damascus, being the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world (circa 4 000 years). Its Semitic people have been ruled at various times by Akkadians, Arameans, Persians, Greeks, Romans and Turks.
· So, why is the U.S. government so determined to have a regime change in Syria?
· Does Syria have weapons of mass destruction? Nope.
· Does Syria have a program to build weapons of mass destruction? Nope
· Does Syria have a nuclear program? Nope.
· Does Syria have or plan to have nuclear weapons? Nope.
· Does Syria pose any possible threat to the United States? Nope.
· Does Syria have a strategically important quantity of hydrocarbons? Nope.
· Does the United States need Syria as a place to build bases to control the Middle East? Nope
· Does control of Syria give the Americans any strategic benefits whatsoever? Nope.
· Was Syria involved with the September 11 attack? Nope
· Is Syria connected to al Qaeda? Nope. In fact, the Syrian government is one of the biggest enemies of Islamist terrorist groups. Assad has a hatred for the Muslim Brotherhood, and they were banned from Syria.
Syria occupies a key strategic position in the Middle East and represents the last obstacle for a United States/Zionist takeover of the region and the imposition of puppet regimes in each state. The ultimate target appears to be Iran with whom Syria signed a defense co-operation pact in May 2008. The "popular uprising," which started in March 2011, has been masterminded by Turkish, American (CIA) and Israeli intelligence agents. The so-called "peaceful demonstrators" are the pawns of agents provocateurs (Salafists, Jihadis), who are armed with heavy machine guns, mortars, anti-air rockets and tank traps. The purpose of these demonstrations is to destabilize the country, so that a fake humanitarian crisis is created, which demands military intervention by R2P.
(R2P) The Responsibility to Protect is a global political commitment which was endorsed by all member states of the United Nations at the 2005 World Summit to prevent genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. The principle of the Responsibility to Protect is based on the underlying premise that sovereignty entails a responsibility to protect against genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. The outcome is intended to be regime change.
President Bashar al-Assad is a popular leader and is supported by most of his people. In a presidential referendum held on 10 July 2010, he gained 97.3% of the votes cast. Perhaps on this occasion, Syria will prove to be a "bridge too far" for the imperialist powers and their backers the international bankers.
The American people need to open their eyes to what is happening in the Middle-East. Our government is rapidly pushing the world into a global conflict that will destroy every element of freedom. It is our government that is complicit in the murder of Christians in Iraq, Lybia, Afghanistan, and now Syria. When will it end?
And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: 10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? 11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. Rev. 6:9-11
