  • I can't imagine what Assad could hope to gain with CW. CW's are not what you would call a "smart" weapon - the stuff just drifts with the wind. And Sarin isn't very persistent either. Further, the 60 day timeline for crude Sarin to degrade is generous, as unrefined Sarin starts to degrade as soon as it's mixed... Ergo, it would be kind of a waste to mix it without targets in mind.

    Perhaps the goal is intimidation of his opponents, and nothing else - hopefully.

    • I just heard this on Fox News and couldn't believe it Why would he choose to kill thousands (if not millions) instead of just giving up? Is all the power really worth all the loss of life? I think I heard that 40,000 have been killed since their war started

      • I'm just stunned. Can the darkness in this world get any darker? Unfortunately, we all know that the answer to that question is yes; It can and it will.

I need someone to explain why Damascus has to be a ruinous heap in one 12 hour period, over night. It looks to me like verse 1 is not related to verses 13 and 14. Verse 1 is talking about Damascus becoming a ruinous heap, and the last 2 verses about the nations being chased away.

          I really don't think that Damascus has to be ruined in 1 night, but can be over time end up a ruinous heap, which if things continue as they are that is exactly what will happen.
          Here's hows I see the breakdown of Isaiah 17...

          Prophecy against Damascus:
          1 The burden against Damascus.
          “Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city,
          And it will be a ruinous heap.

          Prophecy against Israel's neighbors (Jordan = Aroer, Palestinians = fortress in Ephraim, Syria):
          2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken;
          They will be for flocks
          Which lie down, and no one will make them afraid.
          3 The fortress also will cease from Ephraim,
          The kingdom from Damascus,
          And the remnant of Syria;
          They will be as the glory of the children of Israel,”
          Says the Lord of hosts.

          What these nations do to Israel that results in their judgment:
          4 “In that day it shall come to pass
          That the glory of Jacob will wane,
          And the fatness of his flesh grow lean.
          5 It shall be as when the harvester gathers the grain,
          And reaps the heads with his arm;
          It shall be as he who gathers heads of grain
          In the Valley of Rephaim.
          6 Yet gleaning grapes will be left in it,
          Like the shaking of an olive tree,
          Two or three olives at the top of the uppermost bough,
          Four or five in its most fruitful branches,”
          Says the Lord God of Israel.

          The spiritual revival that Israel has as a result of these nations coming against her:
          7 In that day a man will look to his Maker,
          And his eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.
          8 He will not look to the altars,
          The work of his hands;
          He will not respect what his fingers have made,
          Nor the wooden images nor the incense altars.

          More description about the losses for Israel:
          9 In that day his strong cities will be as a forsaken bough
          And an uppermost branch,
          Which they left because of the children of Israel;
          And there will be desolation.
          10 Because you have forgotten the God of your salvation,
          And have not been mindful of the Rock of your stronghold,
          Therefore you will plant pleasant plants
          And set out foreign seedlings;
          11 In the day you will make your plant to grow,
          And in the morning you will make your seed to flourish;
          But the harvest will be a heap of ruins
          In the day of grief and desperate sorrow.

          The fleeing of Israel's enemies and the uproar of the nations for what Israel does to their enemies:
          12 Woe to the multitude of many people
          Who make a noise like the roar of the seas,
          And to the rushing of nations
          That make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
          13 The nations will rush like the rushing of many waters;
          But God will rebuke them and they will flee far away,
          And be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind,
          Like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.

          The time it takes for this conflict between Israel and her neighbors (think chemical attack on Israel and Sampson option on her neighbors). Israel does to her neighbors what they sought to do to her:
          14 Then behold, at eventide, trouble!
          And before the morning, he is no more.
          This is the portion of those who plunder us,
          And the lot of those who rob us.

              Isaiah 17: Destruction of Damascus


              --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

              In the last days, the Bible tells us of a horrible series of events that will take place in the lands of Israel and Syria. One of these events is the disappearance of Damascus as one of the premiere cities in the world. The oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet, Damascus has witnessed at least 5,000 years of human history, and some historians believe the city actually dates back to the seventh millennium BC. In fact, Paul was on the road to Damascus when Christ first appeared to Him, an event that transformed not only his life, but the course of human history.

              In the very near future, Damascus will once again play a major role in human events. The prophet Isaiah provides us with God’s commentary on a future conflict between Damascus and Israel, and in so doing, he reveals certain prophecies which have been partially fulfilled in the past. However, the ultimate fulfillment of Isaiah 17 remains in the future. The current existence of Damascus, which will one day cease to be a city, as well as the historical absence of the coalition of nations prophesied to attack Israel and be destroyed by God, is proof that Isaiah 17 prophesies events yet future.

              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.

              According to these verses, the cities of Aroer, which are located on the northern bank of the Arnon River just east of the Dead Sea, will also be deserted. However, the passage doesn’t say they will be destroyed in the same manner as Damascus, just that they will be deserted. It may be that people simply flee these cities out of fear.

              In addition, many of the fortified cities in northern Israel will also be destroyed. Those few who remain in Aram, 38 miles south southeast of Damascus, will share the fate of these northern Israeli cities.

              “‘In that day the glory of Israel will be very dim, for poverty will stalk the land. Israel will be abandoned like the grain fields in the valley of Rephaim after the harvest. Only a few of its people will be left, like the stray olives left on the tree after the harvest. Only two or three remain in the highest branches, four or five out on the tips of the limbs. Yes, Israel will be stripped bare of people,’ says the Lord, the God of Israel.” Isaiah 17:4-6 (NLT)

              The breadth and scope of destruction is clearly illustrated as God describes the Israeli landscape as stripped bare of people. Only a small fraction of people either choose to stay in the land or else survive what is a massive holocaust, leaving only a few inhabitants who struggle in poverty.

              “Then at last the people will think of their Creator and have respect for the Holy One of Israel. They will no longer ask their idols for help or worship what their own hands have made. They will never again bow down to their Asherah poles or burn incense on the altars they built.” Isaiah 17:7-8 (NLT)

              As a result of this event, the people of Israel will once again turn to God Almighty. Currently, the nation of Israel is predominantly secular in nature. Other biblical passages infer that this will change as the prophesied rebuilding of the Temple in the last days indicates a spiritual resurgence among the Jews of Israel. Nevertheless, this passage clearly indicates the people of Israel will turn away from all false idols and gods.

              Knowing that this will happen, we must ask: why does it happen? The answer is found in the verses that follow:

              “Their largest cities will be as deserted as overgrown thickets. They will become like the cities the Amorites abandoned when the Israelites came here so long ago. Why? Because you have turned from the God who can save you – the Rock who can hide you. You may plant the finest imported grapevines, and they may grow so well that they blossom on the very morning you plant them, but you will never pick any grapes from them. Your only harvest will be a load of grief and incurable pain.” Isaiah 17:9-11 (NLT)

              The devastation that overshadows Israel will come about because Israel has “turned from the God who can save them.” All the hard work performed prior to this event will be lost. Those who have been distracted by the things of this world will be disappointed, for they have forgotten God, and by putting faith in the things of this world, they will ultimately be disappointed. Their only harvest will be “a load of grief and incurable pain.” This grief will be brought to a climax when, in the midst of their suffering, the nation of Israel faces an imminent invasion:

              “Look! The armies rush forward like waves thundering toward the shore. But though they roar like breakers on a beach, God will silence them. They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind or like dust whirling before a storm. In the evening Israel waits in terror, but by dawn its enemies are dead. This is the just reward of those who plunder and destroy the people of God.” Isaiah 17:12-14 (NLT) While Syria and Israel lie in ruin, the enemies of Israel will view her suffering as an opportunity to invade, their ultimate goal to destroy her forever. However, God has a different plan in mind, and He will destroy these invaders Himself. A more in depth illustration of this attack is foreseen in Psalm 83:

              “O God, don’t sit idly by, silent and inactive! Don’t you hear the tumult of your enemies? Don’t you see what your arrogant enemies are doing? They devise crafty schemes against your people, laying plans against your precious ones. ‘Come,’ they say, ‘let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.’ This was their unanimous decision. They signed a treaty as allies against you – these Edomites and Ishmaelites, Moabites and Hagrites, Gebalites, Ammonites, and Amalekites, and people from Philistia and Tyre. Assyria has joined them, too, and is allied with the descendants of Lot. Do to them as you did to the Midianites or as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the Kishon River. They were destroyed at Endor, and their decaying corpses fertilized the soil. Let their mighty nobles die as Oreb and Zeeb did. Let all their princes die like Zebah and Zalmunna, for they said, ‘Let us seize for our own use these pasturelands of God!’ O my God, blow them away like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind! As a fire roars through a forest and as a flame sets mountains ablaze, chase them with your fierce storms; terrify them with your tempests. Utterly disgrace them until they submit to your name, O Lord. Let them be ashamed and terrified forever. Make them failures in everything they do, until they learn that you alone are called the Lord, that you alone are the Most High, supreme over all the earth.” Psalm 83 (NLT)

              So how do we know that Psalm 83 describes the same scene envisioned in Isaiah 17? Let’s compare the two. Here’s how the intentions of Israel’s enemies are described:

              Plunder & Destruction
              “This is the just reward of those who plunder and destroy the people of God.” Isaiah 17:14 (NLT)

              Destruction
              “They devise crafty schemes against your people, laying plans against your precious ones. ‘Come,’ they say, ‘let us wipe out Israel as a nation. We will destroy the very memory of its existence.’ This was their unanimous decision.” Psalm 83:3-5 (NLT)

              Plunder
              “for they said, ‘Let us seize for our own use these pasturelands of God!” Psalm 83:12 (NLT)

              Here’s how the fate of Israel’s enemies are described:

              “They will flee like chaff scattered by the wind or like dust whirling before a storm.” Isaiah 17:13 (NLT)

              “O my God, blow them away like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind!” Psalm 83:13 (NLT)

              From the description of their fate alone, it is reasonable to conclude that the armies of Isaiah 17:12 are the same nations who sign a treaty against the Lord in Psalm 83:5-8. Below is a list of those nations and their modern geographical equivalents:

              Edomites = Jordan / Parts of the West Bank
              Ishmaelites = The Arab people
              Moabites = Jordan / Parts of the West Bank
              Hagrites = Jordan / The Arab people
              Gebalites = Lebanon
              Ammonites = Jordan
              Amalekites = Southern Israel / Gaza
              Philistia = Gaza
              Tyre = Lebanon
              Assyria = Syria / Parts of Turkey and Iraq
              The Descendants of Lot = Jordan


              By studying the geographical history of these ancient people and places, we can uncover which nations they currently compose. According to Psalm 83, in the aftermath of the destruction of northern Israel and Damascus, Israel will be invaded by armies from Jordan, the West Bank, Lebanon, Syria, and Gaza. All of these locations are heavily populated by the enemies of Israel today.

              An Expanding War?
              But are the nations cited in Psalm 83 the only nations involved in this attack? It’s quite possible that additional conspirators are named in the Book of Ezekiel. Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 might well foreshadow the war of Gog and Magog.

              In Ezekiel 38-39, an enormous coalition of nations, “a vast and awesome horde” – will roll down on Israel “like a storm and cover the land like a cloud” Ezekiel 38:9 (NLT). This prophesied future war in Ezekiel has many similarities to Isaiah 17:12-14. Both prophets foresee a time when enemy armies rush toward Israel while she awaits unprepared. Both prophets foresee God’s instantaneous destruction of Israel’s enemies. And in both scenarios, the marching armies intend to plunder and destroy the people of Israel:

              Destruction
              “You will say, ‘Israel is an unprotected land filled with unwalled villages! I will march against her and destroy these people who live in such confidence!” Ezekiel 38:11 (NLT)

              Plunder
              “But Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish will ask, ‘Who are you to rob them of silver and gold? Who are you to drive away their cattle and seize their goods and make them poor?’” Ezekiel 38:13 (NLT)

              Plunder & Destruction
              “This is the just reward of those who plunder and destroy the people of God.” Isaiah 17:14 (NLT)

              Could the events predicted in Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83 be a catalyst for the war of Gog and Magog prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39? Although it is not a certainty, the possibility can not be completely ruled out.

              Today’s Headlines

              Looking at today’s geopolitical landscape, it’s not difficult to envision the scenario outlined in Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83. Syria has been adamant in its demand that Israel surrender the Golan Heights, threatening war if Israel fails to comply. Meanwhile, the summer 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah has apparently convinced leaders in Damascus that Syria can be victorious in a conflict with Israel by simply overwhelming the tiny nation with rocket attacks. From a greater perspective, it has convinced the entire Islamic world that Israel isn’t the militarily invincible nation they once thought.

              Syria’s rocket technology is far more advanced than that deployed by Hezbollah, and Syria is known to possess chemical weapons, including the highly lethal VX and Sarin gases. If Syria miscalculates and attacks Israel with these weapons, the Israeli response will be swift and devastating. Israel is armed with nuclear weapons, and if its survival is put in question, it will not hesitate to use them.

              If this happens, a mortally wounded Israel will become an irresistible target for her enemies. The surrounding Muslim nations will see an opportunity to destroy her, while Russia will see an opportunity to seize the upper hand in the oil rich Middle East.

              Today, the most virulent enemies of Israel reside in the very places named in Psalm 83 – Hamas in Gaza, the Palestinians in the West Bank and Jordan, Hezbollah in Lebanon, and the Syria leadership and its Axis of Evil partners in the city of Damascus.

              As of this writing, the conditions are ripe for the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Psalm 83, paving the way for the rapture of the church and the beginning of the tribulation. In light of such developments, we should zealously preach the Gospel of Christ to all who will listen. For the hour is late, and the return of Christ is near.

I woke up depressed, then I truly understood why we will be raptured... we cannot be exposed to this type of evil every day... it will wear on our hearts. I feel so much for the children stuck in Syria still, wish the people would leave, while they still can, but it may be too late from what I've read.

                • It is my opinion that we could very well be staring down the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38 & 39 as well as Isaiah 17 (and 19 possibly). I hold the belief that if this happens we are out of here. I do believe (and it is my opinion again) that if this transpires more will follow from other countries and we could see the hand of God move to protect Israel. As well, I think it could trigger the Rapture. Now I'm not saying, "Thus sayeth the Lord." This is my discernment of Scripture. Regardless of what will happen, God is in control. It brings me back to the same thing I have tried to share with my friends and family--we need to be ready. And we need to be bold about our faith and contending for the faith like we never have before. We have a commission to fulfill. And time is running out.

                  All that has needed to be fulfilled has been fulfilled. Therefore, we need to look up and have our ears tuned to that trump and shout. Who knows? We may be home for Christmas!

                  • Have just been reading a report, though not MSM, stating that the US and French together with some other NATO forces, are preparing for a ground invasion of Syria. No corroborating evidence or otherwise at this stage so have to continue to wait and watch this space.

                    ETA that just found this from The Australian online newspaper, only have access to part of the article as follows:

                    WASHINGTON is ready to launch military action in Syria "within days" if Bashar al-Assad resorts to mobilising chemical weapons to repel rebel forces trying to seize Damascus, US officials say.

                    US-led military intervention, which would also involve allies, is not imminent, but the Pentagon and Central Command, which has authority for US operations in the Middle East, were ready to respond if necessary, the officials said yesterday.

                      US, Russia to meet with UN mediator for Syria in new diplomatic effort to end war

                      DUBLIN –
                      The top U.S. and Russian diplomats will hold a surprise meeting Thursday with the United Nations' peace envoy for Syria, signaling fresh hopes of an international breakthrough to end the Arab country's 21-month civil war.

                      U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and mediator Lakhdar Brahimi will gather in Dublin on the sidelines of a human rights conference, a senior U.S. official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because she wasn't authorized to speak publicly on the matter. She provided few details about the unscheduled get-together.

                      The former Cold War foes have fought bitterly over how to address Syria's conflict, with Washington harshly criticizing Moscow of shielding its Arab ally. The Russians respond by accusing the U.S. of meddling by demanding the downfall of President Bashar Assad's regime and ultimately seeking an armed intervention such as the one last year against the late Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi.

                      But the gathering of the three key international figures suggests possible compromise in the offing. At the least, it confirms what officials describe as an easing of some of the acrimony that has raged between Moscow and Washington over the future of an ethnically diverse nation whose stability is seen as critical given its geographic position in between powder kegs Iraq, Lebanon and Israel.

                      Black Sea Fleet's anti-pirate mission in Indian Ocean cancelled
                      16:26 December 5, 2012 Interfax

                      A unit of Russian Black Sea Fleet ships will return to their homeport of Sevastopol in the second half of December, and its earlier planned cruise to the Indian Ocean through the Suez Canal for an anti-pirate mission together with Pacific Fleet ships has been cancelled, a source from the Russian General Staff told Interfax-AVN on Wednesday.

                      It was reported earlier that the passage through the Suez Canal was scheduled for Nov. 27. However, the unit received orders on Nov. 23 to stay in the Eastern Mediterranean if it were necessary to evacuate Russian citizens from the Israel-Gaza conflict area.

                      Russia Docks Warships in Syria as NATO Arms Turkey
                      Russian warships docked at a naval base in Syria, according to reports on Wednesday, further separating Moscow from Western actions in the war-torn country.

                      The two ships made a rare call at the port in Tartus, Russia's only remaining international military base since the Soviet Union collapsed, according to AFP and Interfax reports. Russian authorities claim the stop was only to load fuel and water and make "minor repairs." This is the second time the Russian Navy has raised eyebrows in recent weeks, following reports that it docked warships off the coast of Gaza in late November, during the height of the fighting there with Israel.

                        • Very curious.

                          Assad must be really backed up against the wall or he is convinced that the rest of the world will yell a little bit but do nothing after he uses the weapons (possibly both).

                          Given everything that's been written about the shelf life of Sarin, I would be surprised if Assad did not order their use within a week (enough time to field deploy to multiple locations). I would also expect that absent a standing army in the field to attack, most of these weapons will be used against Aleppo, which seems to be the primary staging ground for rebel assaults against government facilities.

                          But, what will the world do if/when Assad uses these weapons? That is the $64,000 question at the moment.

                          • I watch this whole thing holding my breath...and it's a horrible scenario.....it seems we're coming hair-thin to maybe Isaiah 17 or Ez. 38 & 39 being fulfilled finally....but it seems we've been that close to other things before and God slowed the momentum. I'm praying for all the innocents.....it seems like a no-win situation all around. I want to meet My Lord & Savior more than I can say...but this roller-coaster is getting so hard to take. I pray that the Lord will strengthen all of us to keep the faith and continue to run the race and not become discouraged. I'll pray for all of you, if you'll remember to pray for me at this seemingly very critical time.......

                            • The big question is;


                              Who really is in control of the weapons?

                              Turkey is likely on edge.

                              Israel - knife edge..... IAF has got to be on highest alert....
