Putin oversees massive exercise of Russian nuclear forces

Prophecy Sign:  The head of the Magog alliance - Gog

Vladimir Putin now the most powerful person on the planet?  Russia as a resurgent military power?  While we can't know for sure, the current Russian leader and Russia herself sure seem to be slotting themselves into the Gog/Magog prophecy as the powerful northern military power with a powerful military leader that will initiate an attack and invasion attempt on Israel in the last days.

The word of the Lord came to me:  “Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshek and Tubal; prophesy against him  and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Gog, chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. Ezekiel 38:1-3 NIV

Putin Named Most Powerful Person in World by Forbes
Russian President Vladimir Putin was named the most powerful person on the planet by Forbes magazine Wednesday, knocking US President Barack Obama off the number one spot. Forbes said that Putin, who ranked third last year, showed his dominance in diplomatic maneuvring during the international crisis over Syria, and the fate of fugitive US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden who was given asylum in Russia. “Putin has solidified his control over Russia ("dictator" is no longer an outlandish word to ponder) and the global stage,” Forbes said.

Putin oversees massive exercise of Russian nuclear forces
President Vladimir Putin oversaw a massive exercise of Russia's nuclear forces Wednesday that involved multiple test launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles, a formidable demonstration of Russia's resurgent military power. "All launches were conducted as required. All practice targets were hit," the Kremlin said in a terse statement. In addition to strategic nuclear forces, the maneuvers involved aerospace defense units and the air force and navy, the Kremlin said.

NATO stages exercise as rearming Russia worries some allies
When NATO forces start a major exercise in Latvia and Poland this weekend, they will be rehearsing how to oust an anonymous invading enemy from a fictional region. For some, however, exercise "Steadfast Jazz" will test how the Western alliance could deploy rapid reaction forces to its eastern flank - which borders Russia. A militarily resurgent and swiftly rearming Russia is alarming NATO states that lie close to its territory, chiefly the Baltic States. Other alliance members are simply baffled, wondering why Moscow feels the need to spend vast sums on meeting a threat from the West they say will never materialize. NATO stresses that the war games are not aimed at Russia directly, although some officials say part of their point is to reassure eastern member states at a time when Russia is probing NATO airspace with bombers, building warships and conducting ever more sophisticated exercises.
