    The situation taking place in Syria now is definitely one to watch. It's feared that the U.S.'s war games could lead to an attack on Syria, although I can't find any information as to the duration exactly. Russia is also hosting war games in return which start on the 1st of next month, and is speculated to be away of defending Syria encase of such an attack. Nothing may end up happening, but the situation is very volatile right now.

    It's just in time for the alleged peace deal release on the 25th and the Gog and Magog alliance making strides in Syria right now. Libya and Sudan just need to declare a formal military alliance and I'd say G&M are good to go after dealing with the norther Syrian rebels.

    I think we moved another step closer to Isaiah 17, however, it' not playing out the way I've always thought. From reading the bible, I've always felt Damascus would be destroy in a war between Israel and Syria since those are the only two players mentioned in the text.

    Isaiah 17:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
    1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
    2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
    3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.



    From other translations below that are easier to understand, it appears Assad and his government will no longer exist once Damascus is destroyed.

    Isaiah 17:3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
    3 The fort cities of Ephraim will be destroyed.
    The government in Damascus will be finished.
    Those left in Aram will lose everything,
    just like the people of Israel,” says the LordAll-Powerful.

    Isaiah 17:3 New Living Translation (NLT)
    3 The fortified towns of Israel will also be destroyed,
    and the royal power of Damascus will end.
    All that remains of Syria
    will share the fate of Israel’s departed glory,”
    declares the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.

    Isaiah 17:3 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
    3 Israel will lose its fortresses.
    The kingdom of Damascus
    will be destroyed;

    its survivors will suffer
    the same fate as Israel.
    The Lord All-Powerful
    has promised this.

    Isaiah 17:3 New English Translation (NET Bible)
    3 Fortified cities will disappear from Ephraim,
    and Damascus will lose its kingdom.
    The survivors in Syria
    will end up like the splendor of the Israelites,”
    says the Lord who commands armies.

    Isaiah 17:3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)
    3 Fortified cities will disappear from Ephraim,
    and the kingdom will disappear from Damascus.
    The remaining few from Aram will share Israel’s honor,”
    declares the Lord of Armies.




    Came across some interesting articles today in the news.

    Amid 'bloodbath' fears, US warns Assad against using chemical weapons

    GENEVA (AFP) - With the United Nations warning of a potential "bloodbath" in Syria's Idlib province, the United States warned President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday it would respond "swiftly and appropriately" if he uses chemical weapons against his own people.

    https://www.france24.com/en/2018090...us-warns-assad-against-using-chemical-weapons



    US threatens to ‘respond swiftly’ if Assad uses chemical weapons

    WASHINGTON — The United States warned Syria Tuesday it will respond “swiftly and appropriately” if it uses chemical weapons against its people.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/us-threatens-to-respond-swiftly-if-assad-uses-chemical-weapons/




    Book claims Trump ordered Assad killed

    New book claims Secretary of Defense ignored order from President to kill Syrian dictator following deadly chemical weapons attack.

    US President Donald Trump ordered the assassination of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad after the Syrian regime launched a chemical weapons attack on its own people in April, 2017, according to a new book by Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward.

    According to Woodward's account, Trump called Secretary of Defense James Mattis and ordered Mattis to kill Assad immediately after learning about the attack in which at least 80 people were killed.

    “Let’s f–king kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the f–king lot of them,” Trump told Mattis.

    http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/251606




    Trump drew a red line on Syria — but Russia looks set for massive retaliation this time

    • President Donald Trump on Monday warned Syria, Russia, and Iran against "recklessly attacking" the last rebel stronghold in Syria, but Russia started airstrikes by the next morning.
    • Trump has ordered strikes on Syria in response to chemical-weapons use in the past.
    • But this time Russia looks to have forecast its use and made plans to fight back against a US strike.
    • The US can probably still attack Syria, and Russia wouldn't do anything about it, but hope for Syria's civilians has long gone.
    • Russia, Syria, and Iran seem close to ending the war on their terms.
    • The best the US can offer now is punitive strikes in response to chemical warfare, and thoughts and prayers for the families caught in the cross fire.
    https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-warns-syria-idlib-russia-navy-massive-retaliation-2018-9




    Listen to what the general said about the US squandering an opportunity to do something about Assad's regime during the Obama administration after the 3:30 mark in the video.

    From all the news I've been reading about Syria lately, I'm getting the impression that Damascus will be destroy by the US and maybe a few allies, and not solely by Israel as how I've always interpreted Isaiah 17.


    Isaiah 17:14 New International Version (NIV)
    In the evening, sudden terror!
    Before the morning, they are gone!

    This is the portion of those who loot us,
    the lot of those who plunder us.



    This last verse sounds like Trump's "swiftly and appropriately" threat in the first two articles.
