WARS & RUMORS THEREOF
Anti-ISIS coalition troops and allied Syrian opposition forces have repelled an attack by the terrorist group on a joint base in southern Syria, according to the coalition. The US-led coalition said ISIS initiated a complex attack on Saturday at the At Tanf Garrison on the Syrian-Jordanian border using a vehicle-borne IED, and 20-30 fighters followed with a ground assault and suicide vests. “Coalition and partnered forces engaged and defended the ISIS attack with direct fire before destroying enemy assault vehicles and the remaining fighters with multiple coalition airstrikes,” the coalition said in a news release. It is not known how long the battle lasted. Initial reports indicate the assault did not result in any coalition casualties, a coalition official told CNN.
NOTE: Countries participating in the US-led coalition battling ISIS include the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Jordan, among others.
This is concerning if, as I believe, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, who are led by the US, are part of the “King of the South” coalition. If I’m right, this means that the “King of the South” just pushed on the “King of the North” again. Iran, Syria and Iraq are the “King of the North” coalition and Russia is involved with them. This puts the US and Russia (who are the ancient Medes) squarely at odds and will cause a war that will destroy the US, the end time Daughter of Babylon.
And here is an interesting fact for you. Cyrus went to war and defeated the medes. Trump is now at war with the Medes. The difference is that the Medes win the war with Cyrus/Trump in the end. At the end of days, the tables will be turned.
As of last week, President Donald Trump’s foreign policy vision remained mired in fog. Now, recent developments show an administration that’s ready to go on offense. From attacking a Syrian government airfield on Thursday to moving an aircraft carrier group closer to North Korea on Sunday, the White House seems to be pursuing an aggressive approach to reign in rogue nations. Trump should be afraid of what he is doing. He may be a Cyrus figure, a war-mongering man, but Trump won’t have the success that Cyrus did. That is where Trump’s and Cyrus’s similarities will end.
The commander of American forces in the Pacific has ordered an aircraft carrier and several other warships toward the Korean Peninsula in a show of force by the Trump administration just days after North Korea tested another intermediate-range missile.
“We’re seeing activity that we didn’t even see when it was the Soviet Union. It’s precedential activity,” Howard told Reuters in an interview late on Saturday during a missile defense conference.
