Russia Warns USA After Syrian Warplane Downed

Remember, anytime you see a headline with Russia and Syria in probably want to pay attention.

As you already know, Russia seems to be the main player in Ezekiel 38 and Damascus, Syria is the main player in Isaiah 17.

Warplanes from the U.S.-led coalition operating over Syrian government-controlled areas west of the Euphrates River will be tracked as potential targets, Russia's Defense Ministry said Monday, a day after the U.S. military shot down a Syrian air force jet.

Moscow condemned the downing of the Syrian jet after it dropped bombs near the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces that are fighting ISIS in Syria's increasingly complicated civil war.

The downing of the warplane — the first time in the conflict that the U.S. has shot down a Syrian jet — came as Iran fired several ballistic missiles at ISIS positions in eastern Syria in retaliation for two attacks by the extremists in Tehran earlier this month that killed 17 people.

The U.S. military confirmed that one of its F-18 Super Hornets shot down a Syrian Su-22 that had dropped bombs near the U.S. partner forces SDF. Those forces, which are aligned with the U.S. in the campaign against ISIS, warned Syrian government troops to stop their attacks or face retaliation.

In comments to Russian news agencies, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov compared the downing to "helping the terrorists that the U.S. is fighting against."

"What is this, if not an act of aggression?" he asked.

Viktor Ozerov, chairman of the defense and security committee at the upper chamber of Russian parliament, described the Defense Ministry's statement as a warning.

Ozerov insisted that Russia will be tracking the coalition's jets, not shooting them down, but he added that "a threat for those jets may appear only if they take action that pose a threat to Russian aircraft."


It would certainly appear that the world is walking, or running, down the path that leads to WWIII.

What happens if USA shoots down a Russian plane in Syria?  What happens if USA bombs Iranian soldiers operating in Syria and some Russian generals happened to be in the room "advising" the Iranians?

At present, there seem to be many triggers that could really set things in motion very fast.

Of course it is our hope that a massive war never breaks out.  It is our hope that these actions are all just the opening salvos of a war that won't happen until AFTER the trumpet sounds and Jesus snatches all believers out of this world.

"As in the days of Noah, people were eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, planting, building and carrying on as usual....and they basically had no clue as to what was coming....until the flood came and took them all to destruction." (my paraphrase)
