Are these the battle lines for World War Three?
Graphic shows which countries are siding with Russia or the US in their support – or condemnation – of Assad
· President Donald Trump, 70, launched airstrikes on a Bashar al-Assad controlled airbase in Syria on Thursday
· Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today praised the American airstrike following the chemical attack
· He said that the strikes sent a ‘strong and clear’ message that chemical weapons will not be tolerated in 2017
· Both Britain and Australia praised the US action as an ‘appropriate response’ to what happened in the week
· Syria and Russia have denounced it as an ‘act of aggression’ with Putin saying it damages relationship with US
The US airstrikes on a Syrian regime airbase have hardened the dividing lines across the world in regards to the Assad regime.
MailOnline has set out world leaders’ positions on the conflict, which clearly shows the split between pro and anti-Assad countries.
It suggests which side of the battle line countries would position themselves on should the escalating crisis turn into an all out global conflict.
This map, created by MailOnline, shows who supports who in the battle for Syria – with the UK, France, Germany and the US belonging on the ‘Anti Assad’ side

Britain, Israel, Canada, France, Germany and Turkey all spoke out strongly in their condemnation of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, following the strikes on Friday.
Meanwhile, Russia has blasted the US, with the country’s UN envoy accusing President Trump of ‘violating international law’ by firing at an airbase near Homs.
Britain and Israel today specifically praised Trump’s airstrikes, which took place in the wake of a deadly poison gas attack on a rebel-held town in Syria.
This puts them at odds with countries including Russia, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Algeria and Venezuela, who have all shown their support for Assad in the past.
France and Germany today said that Assad bears ‘sole responsibility’ for the US strike.
On Friday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the strike saying it sent a ‘strong and clear’ message that the use of chemical weapons will not be tolerated.
He said: ‘Israel fully supports President Trump’s decision and hopes that this message of resolve in the face of the Assad regime’s horrific actions will resonate not only in Damascus, but in Tehran, Pyongyang and elsewhere.’
The attacks in neighboring Syria have worried Israel, which has warned against ‘game-changing’ weapons reaching Hezbollah in Lebanon from Syria.
The Israeli leader and Israel’s ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon, hope America’s actions will send a ‘significant message’ to the likes of Iran and North Korea, where leaders have repeatedly ignored warnings against the use of such weapons.
The Israel Defense Forces said Friday that Israel, along with many other international allies, were informed by the US ahead of the military strike, which saw at least 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from two American naval destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean strike the Shayrat Airfield north of Damascus.
The strike was in retaliation for a deadly chemical weapons attack Tuesday in the northern Syrian province of Idlib that left at least 86 people dead.
Britain backed the US missile strike, describing it as an ‘appropriate response’, as the government offered its full support to Trump’s targeted assault.
A No 10 spokeswoman said: ‘The UK Government fully supports the US action, which we believe was an appropriate response to the barbaric chemical weapons attack launched by the Syrian regime, and is intended to deter further attacks.’
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande said Syrian president Assad bore ‘sole responsibility’ for the US strike on a regime airbase.
In a joint statement on Friday, they said: ‘After the chemical weapons massacre of April 4 on Khan Sheikhun in northwestern Syria, a military installation of the Syrian regime was destroyed by a US air strike last night. President Assad bears sole responsibility for this development.’
Hollande added that the US strike was what France had been calling for in the wake of the 2013 chemical attack.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the US attack was ‘understandable’ given the Syrian people’s suffering.
She said: ‘The attack of the United States is understandable given the dimension of the war crimes, given the suffering of innocent people, and given the blockage in the U.N. Security Council.’
End of Report
While this is not the Battle Lines for World War III or Armageddon, they are certainly a reflection of our world geopolitics has moved closer to the alignment of nations at the time when Armageddon will take place. A Key change that we will yet see is with the EU who will at some point in the near future move closer to seeing world conflicts and issues the same way that Russia does. That might seem hard for some to believe right now but it is what all True Bible Students expect based on Bible Prophecy.
What we know from Bible Prophecy is that the EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice and their own ARMY. BUT ALONG WITH THIS development RUSSIA WILL BECOME INVOLVED WITH EUROPE AND IT’S EU ARMY. WHY? BECAUSE BIBLE PROPHECY SAYS THAT RUSSIA WILL BECOME A “GUARD” UNTO EUROPE (Ezekiel 38:7). So how will this unfold, well America and its future political moves with Europe will have a lot to do with how this happens. We would expect America’s relationship with Europe to weaken and Russia’s to become increasingly stronger.
So WATCH for this development to come into alignment, as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ’s Return.
This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East. Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of “Magog”. They are spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”. Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days. So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe. It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.
Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is an exciting on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.
End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.
We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
