Russia and China in the Middle East

Updated on October 7, 2015

The Middle East is inflames because of President Obama’s worst ever foreign policy that is so determined to talk instead of action. While Putin and others love to talk and chat with Obama to placate him, they act. Putin, for all his badness, has got his strategy right and Obama gave Russia the temptation to become the major player in this region. Anyone who thinks Obama’s strategy is the correct one is simply ignorant of the importance of an American presence in the region. History proves this.

Now, Russia, Iran, China are the players there minimizing the USA and NATO. Putin has created his own NATO and there is no question this is bad for Israel in the long term. The US military leaders should voice their disgust with Obama’s policy. It is easy to see where this is heading- a conflict of sorts between the good and evil forces, call it, Star Wars! Cloaked in fighting ISIS, we already know that is not really the case. We know Russia will be sending troops there to conduct combat operations, that, they have met with the Iraqi PM and they have been invited to operate from within Iraq because America has done nothing according to Iraqi leaders. It is true. American planes return from bombing runs with 75% of their bombs still being carried. This over caution about causing civilian loss is just stupid. The ISIS capital, Raqqa, should simply be destroyed, as was suggested on the recent episode of Homeland.

Russia has already done more than the US. They appear to be the real leader now, even though, they are also killing the groups that oppose Assad in Syria. Russia has been sending cruise missiles from the Caspian Sea across Iraq and Iran to destroy targets in Syria. The Chinese will soon be joining the Russians with a squadron of their fighter bombers launching from their aircraft carrier that is already there off shore. Russian aircraft have violated Turkish airspace and it is just a matter of time until there is air to air combat between NATO and Russian aircraft, which will really spin the escalating events out of control. Wait until Russian aircraft begin basing operations from Iraqi airfields.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah will no doubt start attacking Israel with terrorist attacks under the protective umbrella of Russia’s S-300 antiaircraft missiles. One can easily see a confrontation between Israel and Russian assets because of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Of course, all of this was predicted in the Book of Revelations centuries ago by Daniel, when Russia and China were known under different names. Whether one believes it or not, the End Days are here to some degree which will last for many years to come as the region is in war. President Obama has played his role in diminishing the US role in the world allowing this situation to become reality. A Middle East dominated by Russia and Iran is very bad for Israel, which will no doubt, do what it needs to survive, with or without America.

Thank you, President Obama.

      Not happy with how either side is doing it. Obama is an idiot when it comes to the middle east and Putin is playing with fire there.

      This pessimism of Russia is misplaced. Ehy the US has to be the policeman everywhere?

      Hi Perrya, you feel no good can come from Russian intervention. This is silly. What good you expect from American intervention? Be balanced man
