Fox News posted a video “Would US strike leave Syria ripe for jihadi takeover?” in which Middle East journalist Lisa Daftari outlines why she believes a strike at Syria could open up Syria to be taken over by extreme Islamists/jihadists.
I’m sorry, but I don’t understand why we want to play the world’s policeman. Last night, I was listening to a (ex?) general who compared this to Iraq. Iraq and Iran were at war half the time, killing each other off. “Our enemies were busy killing each other off,” he said. “Why would we interfere?” Same in this situation. Why interfere when they are busy occupying each other’s resources and time?
I feel for those who died mercilessly at the hands of Assad, but I did not put them there. It is outside of our control, and we have gotten too big-headed to admit that right now, more than ever before, we do not have the resources to force the rest of the world to “play nice” (as if we ever did).
However, having a sound mind is not going to be the norm as America falls. We need to clean our own stall before we try to tell anyone else what to do. Barring some type of revival in this nation that may or may not slow the rate of descent, I don’t see us lasting that much longer. It could happen. OTOH, why wish for a delay to the coming Kingdom?
Are we ready? People are undergoing trials like I cannot remember before. I asked an elder today, “Is God toughening us up?” He hesitated, so I added, “Is He getting us ready for the tough times ahead?” He stated it was a possibility. Maybe there’s more to it, but I have no other explanation right now for what many of God’s people are going through.
