Let’s just recap who all is involved in Syria:
- Various nutty fractions as IS, Al-Q., Hisbollah, etc.
- the Syrians
- Turkey (ex Ottoman umpire)
- USandA (ex Western empire)
- NATO (ex British umpire)
- Russia (emerging pan-EuraAsian [PEAE] empire)
- Saudi A. (empire of deception)
- Israel (not-allowed-to-be-named empire)
- Iran (soon part of PEAE; ex Persian empire)
- Koordisthan free state
…and then remember that Damascus, maybe the oldest city of mankind, features prominently in Islamic eschatology. It is where the reborn Jesus, son of Mary, the Mahdi and DaJaal (Antichrist) will meet for the last stand-off. It is also written that the Persians will align with ‘Rume’ (= Eastern Rome = orthodox church = now Russia) and against Turkey.
…then consider that a lot of the leaders of above empires (Neocons, Nutty fractions, Ottoman Freemasons, Orthodox church, etc.) pay more attention to prophecies and old books than you might want to know or wish for.
…then consider how prophecies become self-fulfilling if most parties (leaders & decision makers, not the dumb masses) agree on their usefulness.
…welcome to the future now. Interesting times.
