At worst one has to wonder how much Communism is still an influence in the Russian government. At least one has to wonder if Russian expansionism in the increasing aiding of rogue nations or anti-American nations.
At any rate the civil war in Syria is beginning more and more to look like an old fashioned Cold War between the U.S. of A. and Russia. INN has the details.

Poor Syria. Poor Israel. Poor Middle East. God help them. God help us. God help the world.
This is what God revealed to the prophet Isaiah:
“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.
Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
God will unite Abraham’s sons 🙂
Abraham’s Territory…but not yet! Egypt, Assyria, Israel
Isaiah 19:25 prophesies of this trio saying, “Whom the LORD of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.” Here we see the descendants of the 3 wives of Abraham linked together. Assyria is located in the north by the Euphrates, Egypt is located in the south by the Nile and Israel lies smack dab between them, with a road that will connect the three in the future. This alliance of Abraham’s descendents does not exist yet, but will be established in the Kingdom of God, as shown by Isaiah 19:23.
“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth.
