Good articles, Maizar.
Israel wants a wider war, this is plain and simple, and it is increasingly likely that it will get one.
Will Russia intervene?
Living here in Central Europe closer to Russia, and reading Russian newspaper for some years, I too would say: Yes
. Russia won't allow a take-over of Syria (and then of its allied Iran) by USrael. Because Syria is not Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, but Russia's port to the important Mediterranean Sea. The Red Army has a military port there for years.
Russia is preparing themselves for a big war since a few years. For example just a few weeks ago they removed the "numberplates" on their submarines (don't know the English word for numberplate on boats). This is only one small detail of many, which however draw the same picture: in contrast to Europe, the Russians get ready for a big war. And I think an attack on Syria & Iran will be the tin opener for this big war.
It is said that wars are won and lost before they are begun, but this is not always the case. A close and accurate review of historical events of the Second World War show, for example, that the Soviet made some massive miscalculations and as a result failed in their initial plan to take all of Europe.
Thanks for this reminder, which I'm afraid most modern people don't -- want to -- know. However, our friends from Spain (Legion Condor), Finland (STUG III), the Baltic states as well as most East European states, Russian authors like Victor Suchorow ("The Ice Breaker"), and upright Germans know this well.
Now this intented take-over of entire Europe by the national communistic Russia was the main reason why Adolf H. had to do a preventive strike
against the communistic Russia in 1941, named Operation Barbarossa
. Of course the foul show-trials in Nürnberg don't help to remember this fact but just cement false victor's "justice". Still it's the background why Our Lady in 1917 warned against the Russian communism which indeed spreads its errors to the whole world (Trotsky in USA, for example).
And this take-over plan is still there today. The old communistic fratricidal war between national communism (Stalin) and international communism (Trotsky) is live and kicking, so to speak.
Israel and US are prone to blunders and it is entirely possible, as the stakes are raised higher and higher, that in a moment of vulnerability they will fall suddenly and completely.
This would comply with several European Catholic visions, like for example the ones from the well known German visionary Alois Irlmaier
, which Bishop Williamson mentioned recently.
And the time-line gets closer. "Israel" can't wait until the USA crashes economically and financially (which it will soon), so "Israel" needs its US-pawn for this tin opening war before the pawn is out-of-service.
