NATO Shocked how Russia Began Sophisticated Military Campaign in a Heartbeat

The West has been visibly annoyed with Russia for managing to launch an efficient military operation in Syria so fast since it takes NATO years to provide assistance following a request from an ally, former MI6 agent Alastair Crooke observed.
“What probably irks the West most is that Russia has unfolded – and begun – a sophisticated military campaign in the flash of an eye. NATO bumbles along much more slowly with its complicated structures. Iraqis have long complained that in military terms, assistance promised by the NATO powers takes (literally) years to materialize, whereas requests to Russia and Iran are expeditiously met,” he noted in an article titled “Russia’s Aim in Syria Is to Strategically Defeat ISIS and Al Qaeda.”
But speed is not the only thing bothering the North Atlantic Alliance.
For years NATO was the only organization effectively making decisions regarding war and peace within as well as beyond its own borders. Outside opinion was not taken into account. “Those on the receiving end simply had to endure it. But whilst its destructive powers were evident, its strategic benefits have been far from evident – especially across the Middle East,” Crooke pointed out.

The Russian campaign aimed at assisting the Syrian forces in their fight against the Islamic State and other terrorist groups operating in the country has put an end to this state of affairs and offered a glimpse into what the future might look like.
According to Bible Prophecy Gog (the leader of Russia) and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days coming down with great speed. This is what we read in Ezekiel 38:15-16 “And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army: And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days…”
So it is no surprise to Bible Students to see Russia moving so quickly. This will be one of the signs of the Russia that will invade the Middle East at the time of the End that Ezekiel speaks of. Today 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.
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.
