Plot Thickens as Russia Expands Syria Presence

Prophecy Sign:  The Gog/Magog Alliance - Ezekiel  38/39

What on earth is Russia up to in her continue military buildup in Syria?  Is she just helping out with the irradiation of ISIS or are there ulterior motives that may have much to do with Israel and Israel's new found offshore riches?  The following article from the Rapture Ready website gives a compelling scenario of just what lies behind Russia's recent moves into the Middle-East:  Red Storm - Rapture Ready

It is sure looking like things are building for a major showdown in the Middle East between the enemies of Israel and between the God who still loves that little nation he chose out of the wilderness so very long ago.  This showdown is recorded for us in the book of Ezekiel, (chapters 38 & 39).

Plot Thickens as Russia Expands Syria Presence
Russia is on the move in Syria, saying it wants to help the war-torn nation fight Islamic terrorists. But the United States believes Moscow has ulterior motives. Political activist and blogger Ruslan Leviev says he knew something was brewing in Syria when families of Russian soldiers started contacting him in early August.  "That's when we first started getting messages that our Russian military contractors are being sent to Syria," he said. Leviev says Russia has moved a small but significant military force into Syria in recent weeks.

Russia sending thousands of troops, dozens of jets to Syria
Russia has deployed 28 combat planes in Syria, US officials said Monday, and a source in Moscow said 2,000 Russian military personnel would be sent to an airbase near the main port city of Latakia, as fears grow over Moscow’s increasing military presence in the war-torn nation. Washington in recent weeks has expressed growing concern over Russia’s moves to support Syrian President Bashar Assad and warned that militarily backing his regime risks further hampering efforts at bringing peace. Experts said the buildup is likely a prelude to military action.

A Chinese aircraft carrier docks at Tartus to support Russian-Iranian military buildup
As US President Barack Obama welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping to the White House on Friday, Sept. 25, and spoke of the friendship between the two countries, the Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning-CV-16 docked at the Syrian port of Tartus, accompanied by a guided missile cruiser. This is revealed exclusively byDEBKAfile. Beijing is not finding it hard to dance at two weddings, wooing the US for better relations, while at the same time backing Russia in its military intervention in Syria. Coupled with the warm smiles and handshakes exchanged at the lavish reception on the White House lawn, Beijing was clearly bent on showing muscle – not just in the South China Sea, but by allying itself with the Russian-Iranian political and military buildup in support of Syrian President Bashar Assad and his regime.
