British forces in Syria, Assad presidential compound said under attack 

British forces in Syria, Assad presidential compound said under attack

I’m back on a plane in about two hours and headed to OK City, where I will have an interview with Gary Stearman of Prophecy in the News, about Watchers 4.  I just wanted to briefly comment on the above headlines before the flight as this is a new and serious development in the Middle East.

This follow-up action would depend substantially on Syrian, Russian and Iranian (+ Hizballah) responses to the initial stage of the operation.
The reported British incursion, if confirmed, occurred at the tail end of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s 24-hour visit to Israel Tuesday morning and would have posed a direct challenge to his repeated warning that Moscow would not tolerate Western military intervention in Syria and actively prevent it. Similar warnings have issued from Tehran.

The above paragraph is what concerns me, as we will have to see what the response is from Russia and Iran, to the use of multi-national troops in Syria.  I would predict that if Assad believes he is about to be toppled he will attack Israel, possibly drawing from his vast chemical weapons cache to do so.  About a year ago I posted a story that had some saber-rattling between Israel and Syria, this was before the Arab Spring, in which an Israeli official responded directly to the threat of chemical weapons be used against Israel, by saying, If Syria uses chemical weapons against us we will annihilate Damascus!   If Assad is backed into a corner, and by the looks of this story he is, I believe he will lash out, in a last attempt to hold onto the reigns of power.

 In searching other news sources this morning I didn’t see anything about this recent development in Syria.  Added to this is the media black out in regard to the 150 missiles that were fired into Israel from Gaza, in the last week. Violence Flares Up Between Gaza and Israel « PixTale | News stories in photographs from Around The World

In closing todays post:  Our INTEL told us that Israel would most likely go to war between July and September.  July is just around the corner and with this latest advance into Syria by a multi-national army, it would appear that if Assad does not act now, he will most likely be toppled from office.  The elephant in the room is Russia and with Putin at the helm, and thus, anything is possible in the way of response.

I will BLOG tomorrow or as I’m able.

    • yes he did…awesome dvd. I actually bought the 2 disk set the day it was available. I understand that Jeremy Hitchen gave his life to Jesus…he also did a great job.

    • Wow, I prayed big time for Jeremy Hitchen after I watched that. You could tell everything was getting to him and especially during that one on one with Prasch. I sure hope he accepted the Lord! 🙂

    • lol…so did I. Oh he was on my heart for days! Yes you could just see it all over his face and in his voice that God was dealing with him…at one point I think he was ready to break down.

    • Excellent, excellent DVD from Jacob Prasch. By all means watch the bonus DVD too. Jacob talks a couple of minutes about the nephilim. We showed this to our home Bible study group and everyone loved it.

    • o ya LA heres a pretty good vid from your pals at the history channel *0)

      its called GOD vs the devil 1hr long

      just highlight with mouse guys and while its in blue right click and then click copy on the color then go to your browser and clear out the address bar and right click paste. (for those that didnt know)

      GOD bless you guys its about to hit the Lord is pulling me harder than ever to get the GOOD NEWS out and Warn everyone! Please do the same!

    • It troubles me that these kinds of programs are put out by the propaganda networks. The good versus evil dichotomy is a scam.

      Rose from Kentucky nailed it in the last blog entry, she wrote: “playing both ends against the middle. It is the dialectic – one must have strong opposing forces (but highly controlled) to bring about the synthesis.”

      Satan knows there is coming a day when he can no longer hide the strings on the puppet show. It is at this time, and he has been inching towards this for decades, that he must reveal all. So will he be caught and the light of truth reveal his deception? Not hardly. He has created a system where he controls an evil so unfathomable that all who stand in opposition to this evil will considered good and holy. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is purely a sinful, worldly, unrighteous force that has taken up the banner of good against evil.

      Jesus tells us, “no.one is good but God

    • ” Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.”

      This is the root of the deception. There is no good versus evil. There is only sinfulness versus righteousness.

    • Unsure why these comments did not cascade as a reply, but these last two comments were intended to go under the history channel comment

      Just in case you’re not aware, it will post as a reply if you click on the (numbered) post you want to reply to, then begin writing the reply. Above the reply you’re writing, the numbered post you’re responding to should be farther left than the numbered posts above it.

      Sometimes I intend to reply to someone’s numbered comment, but it posts as a new reply to LA (i.e. a new numbered reply). I assume it’s my mistake, but perhaps there’s a bug?

    • Okay: that should have been:

      it will post as a reply if you click on “Reply” below the numbered post you wish to reply to.

      But it didn’t work for me that time, so apparently there IS a bug.

      We can all blame the Prince of the Powers of the Air.

    • There is wisdom in your comments Hopeful_watcher; especially “And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.”

    • you are absolutely right…the real war that is going on (for lack of a better way to put it)is good vs “good”.

    • Daniel you wrote good versus “good”. Perhaps more accurately would be worldly evil versus demonic EVIL. Then there is no confusion that what comes at the end to judge is what is considered good. Just a thought.

    • Hopeful…I understand what you are saying. I agree up to a point. Technically speaking, no one is good. We are all humans and fall into the catagory of not being able to be called good. I get it. We all know that there is no one that can be called good except Jesus. You may be refering to endtime national alliances(world systems as a whole) where I am refering to a type of spiritual warfare that is existing between remnant Christians(imputed righteousness ie. good….semantics are a funny thing. Roman 3:10, Eccl 7:20)vs. an apostate church(“good”) and a coming delusion(a perceived “good” in Antichrist). Perceived good by the world and an apostate church that is. However I do find it very interesting that in the Bible, God does have a way of using evil to destroy evil. Joel 2 as an example which will be replayed again as written in the book of Rev….however, the focus of the book of Revelation is not all the wars and calamity…it is about the revelation of Jesus to the world. He definately is The Good Sheperd.

    • Awesome good thoughts Daniel. Let’s all keep looking up brother. I agree about your comments of what is in reality good and what is “percieved” as good. I guess the muddy waters that will be the end times is perfectly encapsulated by Isaiah 5:20.
      Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    • This is the root of the deception. There is no good versus evil.

      There is only sinfulness versus righteousness.

      WOW that’s it!!!

    • Winds of Change. Thank you for the uplifting confirmation. Sometimes I am so afraid of if there is truth in what I say or not. I do not want to speak falsly. If you want to read more there is a link above on my account name. It is an online thesis called Woe to us when good defeats evil. There is a pdf download version too.

    • Yes Hopeful…absolutely…Isaiah 5:20 is in full swing around here. It is all around us in government, media, society, the church, you name it. My wife is super sensative to that…lol. I hear Isaiah 5:20 rolling off of her lips often.

  1. I guess I must be somewhat naïve. I looked at the news briefly this morning after reading your report. There was nothing mentioned about the situation. There has to be some type of management agenda to keep the American people from understanding what is going on. How else could one explain it?

  2. I’m with Vincent!
    Every time I see that particular picture of Assad I think, “Frankenstein”

  3. L.A., here in Germany, we get a little more coverage of what is going on in the Middle East than what you get in the US. One of our large online news resources is Deutsche Welle. Here is a link to the section on Middle Eastern news if you would like to take a look at it: http://www.dw.de/dw/0,,14207,00.html

    The main website link is: http://www.dw.de. If it loads in German, there is a section where you can change the language to English. They usually have very good global coverage.

    I try to keep an eye on things since our Foreign Minister, Guido Westerwelle, told the audience at the American Jewish Committee’s Global Forum “I want you to know that we will continue to stand by Israel’s side. We will not remain silent when Israel is threatened or its legitimacy called into question. We will stand up whenever Israel is unfairly singled out in multilateral fora. And we will denounce any incitement against the State of Israel and its right to exist.”

  4. If Syria uses chemical weapons against us we will annihilate Damascus!

    And of course Putin just warned Israel not to attack Iran. I wonder what he said about Syria.

    There was something awhile back about Assad keeping all his chemical and biological weapons securely in warehouses in Damascus (as opposed to scattered military sites around Syria).

    An Israeli strike on Damascus (or anyone’s strike on Damascus) would hopefully destroy all the WMDs.

    Whatever happens, we (the world) need those weapons to be destroyed … or at least secured so the crazies (al Qaeda, Islamic Brotherhood, Hizballah, whoever) who end up overrunning soon-to-be-fallen Syria don’t get ahold of Assad’s WMD’s.

  5. Oh weird: all the replies are shuffled from the order they were in half an hour ago. I’ve seen that before too. My most-recent post is now #5.

    Last post — I promise.

  7. i see assad falling just like the rest because all the rest have… Not to mention the same ole song and dance is being done here as in the other countries. Order out of chaos blah blah blah. What they dont realize is they are fulfilling the will of GOD to a Tee.

  8. Looks like Psychological operations underway and Debka took the bait, these intitial reports produced by N.A.T.O. media outlets are in seeking to compell more defections from Syrian Government forces! Russia however has a firm grip on the situation, any infiltration by numerous foreign troops under the auspices of Western intervention would be immediately confronted! No mission could be successful with out maintaining air superiority, with Russian naval forces and capable Russian air defenses established, U.S. and N.A.T.O. partners would find themselves challenged at every move! If persistent however U.S. and N.A.T.O. forces could find themselves confronting a combined force of Russian, Iranian, and Chinese military! I sincerly doubt that any Western coalition would want attract the attention of the Chinese in this way!

  9. Something to keep note of. Here in the midwest we have been experiencing a drought. We have had less that 3in measurable rain. Three measurable rains total. Two of those little more than 1/2in combined. All the planted corn in the middle of the mid-west is “Tasseling out”. This is a term given to corn that is trying to finish well, but it’s way too early. This corn is no more than 2ft high in most places and already giving it’s tassel. Meaning this, the corn is saying that it doesn’t have anything more to give to growth and is now tasseling in hopes that that what it has already produced (though it’s not fully formed) can be pollinated. Simply put. It’s dying and giving all it has to what it has.

    • Chad, I am originally from Nebraska and i went home last week . What you say is very true and so sad ! Ihave lived in northern Colorado for 30 years now and as of today all i see is smoke, i live against the foothills and the HIGHPARK fire to the north is very visable, and today 2 more fires began just to the south of us very close as well! IT looks like ARMEGEDON. I know its going to get worse and i know whom i serve ! TRUST IN WITH GOD BROTHER.

  10. A third of Earthlings believe in UFOs, would befriend aliens
    By Natalie DiBlasio, USA TODAY

    Aliens often compete with superheroes, vampires and zombies to top hit movie lists — but more than a third of Americans say UFOs are not a fantasy.

    That’s the word from a new National Geographic Channel study finding that 80 million Americans are certain UFOs exist and that one in 10 believe they’ve spotted one.
    “We wanted the pulse on people’s opinions,” says Brad Dancer, senior vice president of research and digital media for National Geographic. “We wanted to get a sense of how Americans view UFOs, what people believe and how mainstream pop culture may or may not be playing into their opinions on it.”
    The results are in: Seventeen percent of Americans don’t believe UFOs exist, 36% think they do, and 48% aren’t sure.
    The survey was commissioned for National Geographic Channel’s series Chasing UFOs, premiering Friday at 9 p.m. ET.

    About 79% of those surveyed think the government has kept information about UFOs a secret from the public, and 55% believe there are real-life Men in Black-style agents who threaten people who spot UFOs.
    So what if they stopped by? The survey shows:
    •22% would try to befriend the alien, 15% would run away, 13% would lock their doors, and only 2% would try to inflict bodily harm.
    •If angry aliens did attack Earth, 21% would call the Hulk in to deal with it, 12% would call Batman, and 8% would call Spider-Man.
    •Nearly 65% think Barack Obama would be better suited than Mitt Romney to handle an alien invasion.

  11. Reuters) – Syrian President Bashar al-Assad declared on Tuesday that his country was at war and ordered his new government to spare no effort to achieve victory, as the worst fighting of the 16-month conflict reached the outskirts of the capital.

    Video published by activists recorded heavy gunfire and explosions in suburbs of Damascus. A trail of fresh blood on a sidewalk in the suburb of Qudsiya led into a building where one casualty was taken. A naked man writhed in pain, his body pierced by shrapnel.

    Syria’s state news agency SANA said “armed terrorist groups” had blocked the old road from Damascus to Beirut.

    The declaration that Syria is at war marks a change of rhetoric from Assad, who had long dismissed the uprising against him as the work of scattered militants funded from abroad.

    “We live in a real state of war from all angles,” Assad told a cabinet he appointed on Tuesday in a speech broadcast on state television.

    “When we are in a war, all policies and all sides and all sectors need to be directed at winning this war.”

  12. Decisive action? Turkey mobilizes troops and heavy equipment on Syrian border
    Posted on June 26, 2012

    June 26, 2012 – MIDDLE EAST – The Turkish military mobilized large numbers of reinforcements from its eastern provinces to the Syrian border on Tuesday, amid rising tension with Damascus, after the downing by Syria of a Turkish Air Force jet on Friday, Turkish media reported. Large numbers of Turkish troops — including at least 15 long-range artillery pieces and tanks – moved to the Syrian frontier from the eastern city of Diyarbakir. A video published by the Turkish Cihan News Agency showed Turkish tanks being transported by carrier trucks toward the frontier.

    The mobilization followed statements by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the Turkish military will respond to any future violation of its border by Syrian military elements. “As awe-inspiring as Turkey’s friendship is, Turkey’s wrath is equally awe-inspiring,” Erdogan told the Turkish parliament on Tuesday. “The rules of engagement of the Turkish Armed Forces have changed,” Erdogan said. “Any military element that approaches the Turkish border from Syria posing a security risk and danger will be regarded as a threat and treated as a military target.” Erdogan closed his remarks with an especially harsh condemnation of Syrian President Bashar Assad: “Turkey and the Turkish people will continue to provide all support until the people of Syria have been saved from this tyrannical, murderous, bloody dictator and his gang.” Opposition sources in Syria reported at least 86 civilians were killed by Assad troops on Tuesday.

    The father of one of the two missing pilots who were shot down in Friday’s incident told Turkish newspaper Hürriyet Daily News that he opposed Turkey going to war over his son. “It is not appropriate for a country to go to war over a pilot, an airplane or 50 airplanes,” Ali Erton said. He said he was aware of the risks his son took as a military pilot, but added “what matters is that my son serves his country.” NATO’s North Atlantic Council condemned Tuesday Syria’s downing of the Turkish jet on Friday, but did not recommend military action for the act, as Ankara has requested. –Times of Israel

  13. Interesting and scary video. I will have to visit the web site. A little off topic, can anyone recommend a site or any information as to how the NWO will pull off what we term a “fake rapture”? Not knowing some of the technology out there, I just can’t see how this can be accomplished on a global scale?

    • fake rapture plan? I don’t understand, I have not heard of any plan like that. Where did you hear about that?

    • Google Project Blue Beam. That is likely also what I am going to have to do to find out the answer to my own question. I’ve been to some of those sites but so far what I have read hasn’t fully answered my questions about it. I am just having difficulty conceptualizing how they could pull that off.

    • There is not going to be a fake rapture. A fake alien invasion maybe, but not a fake rapture.

    • According to some who have researched the NWO and Project Blue Beam they speculate this very well could be something that happens, as far as a fake rapture. As for me, I am not saying one way or the other.

  14. Yesterday morning I woke up thinking about a post I had read on june 16th it was by Scottie -eternalrythmflow it was Obama to bomb Damascus and unfolding prophecy I put a share link on my facebook that morning and a few hours later I saw the debka article listed about British forces in Syria,Assad presidential compound said under attack. I could hardly believe my eyes, then a few more hours later I listened to the Irvin Baxter politics and religion because he was addressing this article as well and to my shock I heard him proclaim statements such as this is the biggest prophetic fulfillment in the last 2000 years since the crucifiction and reserection of Jesus Christ himself.And also the most critical conflict in his lifetime,and he is no young pup I think he is in his early eighties. No small statement. You can go to my facebook and confirm that Ihad posted about the absolte vality of the Bible and that we are in the last days based on prophetic fulfillments. I am sad though about one thing I try all the time to reach family and friends and whoever will listen ,but I find myself alone always in this matter ,it really helps though to be a part of this “blog family” I really need the fellowship . Kimberly Clark Martin Littleton Colorado . I am a great fan of what you have been in service in doing LA. and I am a dedicated follower of Gary Stearman And Bob Ulrich as well . thank you all you are what keeps the blessed hope message going for me in these days Kimberly Clark Wed, 27 Jun 2012 06:18:31 +0000

  15. I also meant to mention the other day Chad Scafer @Schafemeister left a message written by Rob Moore wwwintheday.net I thought was truely incridible and it was and still is worth a listen. ohhh and by the way I know it was the British forces that attacked first and not pres Obama but this IS what Scottie -eternalrythymflow said was going to happen.
