U.S. Says "Reign Of Assad Family Coming To An End", Russia Warns Of U.S. Strikes On Damascus
Rhetoric has heated up substantially since the chemical attack and subsequent U.S. airstrikes on a Syrian airfield. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just said in Moscow "the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end" and in response, Russia is warning of possible U.S. strikes against Damascus directly:
A prophecy against Damascus:
See, Damascus will no longer be a city
but will become a heap of ruins.
The cities of Aroer will be deserted
and left to flocks, which will lie down,
with no one to make them afraid.
The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim,
and royal power from Damascus.
- Isaiah 17:1-3
