Story highlights

  • American and Russian overlap in the fight against ISIS, in Syria
  • Relations between Obama and Putin have been noticeably warmer of late

Antalya, Turkey (CNN)Russia pummeledISIS sites in Syria Tuesday, including targeting the terror organization’s self-proclaimed capital city of Raqqa anddeploying dozens of cruise missiles.

Though Russia has for weeks claimed that its campaign in Syria was aimed at ISIS and other terrorists, the U.S. has until now said that the strikes were largely aimed at rebels opposing Kremlin ally President Bashar al-Assad. But following ISIS’s claim of responsibility for the downing of a Russian passenger plane, which Moscow confirmed Tuesday was caused by a bomb, the Russian attacks now seem to be hitting actual terror targets.

“It may be now, having seen ISIL take down one of their airliners in a horrific accident, that that reorientation continues,” President Barack Obama said during a press conference in Manila Wednesday. “From the start, I’ve also welcomed Moscow going after ISIL. The problem has been that in their initial military incursion into Syria, they’ve been more focused on propping up Mr. Assad and targeting the modern opposition as opposed to targeting those folks that threaten us, Europe and Russia as well.”

The assault was just the latest sign that the strained and at times hostile relationship between the U.S. and Russia might now be thawing as antagonism gives way to common interests. And it’s not just on the battlefield that the change seems apparent — Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin had a markedly warmer exchange at the G20 in Turkey this week than in other recent encounters, and both sides indicated a willingness to do more to work together.

Putin and Obama at the recent G20 meeting in TurkeyAt a meeting Monday, the two men flashed toothy smiles at each other and erupted in quick bursts of laughter — a far cry from virtually every photographed interaction between the leaders in the past several years, including an awkward handshake shared just six weeks ago at the United Nations General Assembly.

And on the sidelines of the world leaders’ summit Sunday, Obama and Putin sat inches across from each other at a small table, perched on the edge of deep leather chairs by a hotel bar, as they spoke animatedly for 30 minutes in what White House officials deemed a “constructive conversation” that centered on Syria.

In a change of tone for the administration, a White House official said Putin expressed support for a Syrian-led transition away from the Assad government, a key step toward reconciling the two countries’ opposing views of Damascus’s political future.

According to Bible Prophecy the Leader of Russia at the time of the End is called “Gog” ie. a chief one a strong and authoratarian ruler which is very fitting for Putin.

Gog is also spoken of militarily as the “King of the North”.  Together the Bible says that Gog and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.

However what is interesting about recent developments is that Russia must come closer to the West whereby she is Trusted to become a partner of Europe and NATO (with NATO becoming perhaps a European only Defence Command Centre) because for Russia and Europe to invade the Middle East togehter as the Bible discribes they must have a common or linked military infrastructure of some sort.  Russia must also become a “guard” under Europe as Bible Prophecy specifically states this in Ezekiel 38:7.  So the relationship between Russia and Europe will be very close and they will share the same objectives if they are to wage war together by invading the Middle East.

We are witnessing the build up to these very events as predicted by the Bible 3500 years ago in Ezekiel 38 and in Daniel 11 and ISIS unknown to them seems to be playing a part in bringing this together.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines show how Events and Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
