US ambassador to Iraq: WH was warned early on about ISIS, “did almost nothing”
It took only 800 ISIS troops to seize Mosul, thanks to the dessicated readiness of the Iraqi army, according to Martin Smith, who reports for the documentary. It will take a lot more than that to push ISIS back out of a city that once held 1.8 million people, but so far the only effort made by the US and its allies has been bombing runs that have forced ISIS to harden its communication lines and operations. When Smith asks Joint Chiefs chair General Martin Dempsey whether he’s optimistic about that being enough to “degrade and destroy” ISIS, Dempsey says no:
I’m going out on a limb here but I truly believe Baghdad will fall and most likely do so before the end of this year, 2014. ISIL continues to add to the growing body count and as the headline in red above states, they lined up 30 men and shot them dead. This type of genocide has become the hallmark of ISIL. Several months ago I posted a video clip showing Shia Moslems lying in a trench with their hands bound behind their backs, being shot in the head, one by one.
While most of our press continues to focus on Ebola, the Middle East is changing and doing so rapidly. However, what I find interesting is how every one of the signs that Jesus warned us would precede His coming, seem to firing on all eight cylinders. Wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes in diverse places….
When Baghdad falls, what happens to the Iraqi oil revenues. What does Iran do as its eastern border is with Iraq? Does Jordan come into ISIL’s cross-hairs at this point? What about Saudi Arabia, with the prize cities of Mecca and Medina? Does Israel sit back and do nothing?
Think about the blood and treasure the US spent in fighting the Iraq war. We toppled Saddam Hussein’s tyrannical government, that tortured and killed thousands of its own citizens. We were told we were liberating the people of Iraq, and in some sense we accomplished this. However, from the get-go the car bombings and so called sectarian violence between Sunni and Shia Moslems persisted and every seven to ten days another deadly suicide bomber would kill scores of Iraqi’s. The Maliki government was at best enervated, and failed to unite the people of Iraq. A fact that I have stated numerous times on this blog. While the recent elections put the Sunni’s back in power this change in leadership is most likely is to little to late.
ISIL is not being dealt with seriously and here’s what I think may be happening behind the scenes.
We know from prophecy that there will be a Psalm 83 war. Look at the nations involved in this prophecy. See Bill Salus @ http://www.prophecydepotministries.net
It seems to me that this war is being set up and at some point Israel will have to deal with those who pose an existential threat to her. Think about it. Hezbollah is entrenched and rearmed in Lebanon. HAMAS is doing the same in GAZA. Now, on the eastern border, just beyond the nation of Jordan, a very active, radical, military force is in operation and it does not equivocate in its mission.
In closing todays post. I believe we are seeing the nascent beginnings of the Psalm 83 war. The players are in place and the world, for the most part is not engaging to stop the genocide that is happening with clock-work like precision in Iraq.
What was written will come to pass. What was foretold will unfold.
