The presence of Russia in Syria reverberates end-times prophecies, says author Joel C. Rosenberg, and much of that lays at the feet of the Americans.
"We are watching a catastrophic capitulation by the American government in the Middle East," Rosenberg says. "It was bedrock U.S. foreign policy for six, seven decades to keep the Russians out of the Middle East. Yet President Obama and his administration have surrendered—surrendered. We have withdrawn, we have surrendered, we have ceded the playing field to Vladimir Putin, who is a czar rising."
Putin's military freedom "just a few miles north of Israel" has devastating consequences for the region.
Rosenberg draws parallels between Russia's military action and the foretold war of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel.
