When President Trump pulled the trigger on Syria, several things became increasingly obvious.
The democrats and their allies in the media have made every determined effort to convince the public that the Russians somehow swayed the recent Presidential election. This charge has been predicated upon the allegation that that Mr. Trump had a cozy relationship with Putin and Soviet interest. Sixty tomahawk missiles fired at Russia’s puppet state blast a huge hole in that theory.
Common sense, which seems to be in short supply these days, would suggest that if Russians would have favored anyone, it would have been Hillary. As noted recently in the Daily Jot, “while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State: Nuclear grade uranium to Russia scored $145 million to the Clinton Foundation; Bill Clinton’s $500,000 speech in Moscow, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s $35 million energy deal with Russia; Clinton Foundation receipt of $2.35 million in donations from Ian Telfer, head of Russia’s uranium company” were a few of some shady dealings. It stands to reason that Russia would benefit greatly if the past relationship with Hillary were to continue.
The President had strongly advocated a strict immigration policy which would temporarily prevent people from terrorist occupied countries to enter the U.S. This has served as fodder for liberals to accuse Mr. Trump of being anti-Muslim, racist, and mean-spirited. Bashar al-Assad was just notified in very clear terms that the gassing of Muslim adults, children, and babies would not be tolerated. The rhetoric of the Left and the actions of the President cannot be reconciled; therefore, the only logical conclusion points to another faulty liberal spin job.
We can recall when Barack Obama, John Kerry, and Susan Rice all trotted out in front of cameras to inform America that all chemical weapons had been removed from Syria because a deal with Russia had been brokered to do so. The new Administration simply took action when the red line that Obama only talked about was crossed.
Not only was the “triangle of terror,” put on notice (Russia, Syria, Iran) but North Korea should be paying attention. How ironic that the Chinese Communist head Honcho was visiting at the time of the missile launchings. One can only speculate about the transmission of information, perhaps at the state dinner. “Oh, by the way, Mr. Xi Jimping, we are sending 60 million dollars of ordinance to make an impression on al-Assad; if not successful we have more. Incidentally, when you think of it, your maniac friend over in North Korea needs to know there is a new sheriff in town. It would be kind of you to send him that message. Please pass the salt.”
It has long been understood that Russia has great interest in keeping Assad propped up to advance Putin’s agenda of Middle East encroachment which is meant to replace the United States as the region's power broker. Several years ago when Russia began her expansionist attitude, a newspaper editorial read, “Russia’s incursion into Georgia this week is proof once more that the Russian bear is a dangerous beast.” The words bear and beast caught my attention because it is Bible language attributed to Russia and Satellite Allies. Another paper submitted: “The old Russian bear, it appears, is waking up from hibernation. Its claws are sharpened, and a pro-Western and democratized Georgia is its first blood. “Since that writing the Ukrainian territory of Crimea has fallen to Soviet invasion and was annexed by the Russian Federation on March 18, 2014.”
According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, the Russian bear is a national personification for Russia used in cartoons and articles at least since the 19th century. One of two things is true; a multitude of writers and cartoonists are Bible readers, or God just got lucky 2500 years ago when they utilized present day terminology and predicted latter day events so accurately…or perhaps a third option should be considered. The Scriptures may be the revelation of a divine source with an uncanny ability to predict the future. The prophet Daniel saw in a vision a beast likened unto a bear, raised up on its side with three ribs in its mouth (Daniel 7:5). Clearly, this is a dominating kingdom (verse 17) which has little regard for the freedom of others. Daniel 11 labels this federation “the king of the north” and begins to narrow the focus until identification is obvious.
Ezekiel continues the theme by devoting two chapters (38 and 39) to the prophecy. His observations forecast a confederation of countries led by Russia that will one day organize a military assault against Israel. Bible believers have the advantage of exposure to Bible prophecy; not only does that information direct us to align ourselves with Israel, but also: “and they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein” (Luke 18:15-17).
