War looming: US Troops heading for Israel

Several Thousand US Troops Headed To Israel For ‘Unprecedented’ Joint Missile Defense Exercise

On Dec 20 Jerusalem Post reported thousands of American soldiers were deploying to Israel to take part in the “the largest-ever missile defense exercise” in Israel’s history. So far, the U.S. media is not covering it, but Iran sure is.

From the Jerusalem Post:

Israel is moving forward with plans to hold the largest-ever missile defense exercise in its history this spring amid Iranian efforts to obtain nuclear weapons.

Last week, Lt.-Gen. Frank Gorenc, commander of the US’s Third Air Force based in Germany, visited Israel to finalize plans for the upcoming drill, expected to see the deployment of several thousand American soldiers in Israel.
The drill, which is unprecedented in its size, will include the establishment of US command posts in Israel and IDF command posts at EUCOM headquarters in Germany – with the ultimate goal of establishing joint task forces in the event of a large-scale conflict in the Middle East.

The US will also bring its THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) and shipbased Aegis ballistic missile defense systems to Israel to simulate the interception of missile salvos against Israel.

Iran is pissed. A few days after that announcement they began a 10 day drill in Strait of Hormuz that ended yesterday, it’s gotten lots of press in the U.S., and yet no mention of the US troop deployment to Israel ever. Here’s WAPO’s Iran army chief warns US aircraft carrier not to return to Persian Gulf in new tough rhetoric

BREAKING NEWS: US To Deploy Troops and Warships In Israel For War With Iran

The US military is preparing a massive military campaign against Iran, sending thousands of American troops, warships and weaponry to Israel.

An unnamed source said the military deployment of US anti-missile ships and accompanying support personnel will occur in January and later this spring, Global Research reported. Commander of the US Third Air Force based in Germany Lt.-Gen Frank Gorenc said it is not just an “exercise,” but a “deployment,” The Jerusalem Post said.

The drill, which is unprecedented in its size, will include the establishment of US command posts in Israel and IDF command posts at EUCOM headquarters in Germany – with the ultimate goal of establishing joint task forces in the event of a large-scale conflict in the Middle East. The US will also bring its THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) and shipbased Aegis ballistic missile defense systems to Israel to simulate the interception of missile salvos against Israel. source – JPost

The American systems will work in conjunction with Israel’s missile defense systems – the Arrow, Patriot and Iron Dome.

Scheduled for May, the drill is called “Austere Challenge” and is expected to see the deployment of several thousand American soldiers in Israel. It will also include the establishment of IDF command posts at European Command headquarters in Germany – with the ultimate goal of establishing joint task forces in the event of a largescale conflict in the Middle East.

The US General also visited one of Israel’s three Iron Dome anti-missile outposts. The Israeli Air Force has announced plans to deploy a fourth Iron Dome system in coming months. While US troops will be stationed in Israel for an unspecified amount of time, Israeli military personnel will be added to United States European Command (EUCOM) in Germany.

This is while the US is reportedly bringing its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and ship-based Aegis ballistic missile systems to Israel.

Comment:

First of all, thanks to everyone keeping me updated with this news.

As I understand it, the new sanctions against Iran will kick in in March 2012. This sanctions will ban any buying of oil from Iran. It will hurt Iran’s economy terribly, so no doubt Iran is not happy at all with it. Their unstable regime will not take it lying down.

The posted news articles are kept silent in the western media. If it was not for the Israeli media and the alternative news sources, we would not have known about it. It does seem like the USA knows that Iran is gearing up for war and they are posting themselves strategically in Israel. Israel will welcome it as it will make her feel more save with all the military might on her soil.

Now this can go several ways. Firstly the Bible does not speak about Israel attacking Persia  in the last days, but Persia attacking Israel who dwells in safety with the Gog/Magog alliance. There may be an attack by the Israeli/US alliance armies, but the big one (Eze 38) will be a surprise. Secondly Syria may be drawn into all of this and we may see the destruction of Damascus. And thirdly, Jesus warned that if we see the armies surrounding Jerusalem, then the inhabitants of Judea must flee as there will be great tribulation.

Wherever this news leads us, be prepared, as we are entering the times called the great tribulation, the times of Jacobs trouble. 2012 is beginning with a bang and it will get more eventful as the year plays out. I am sure that many puzzle pieces will fall into place during this year.

Stay tuned.

    The power balance shifted in the past decade as Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan undermined the premise that the military brass were the untouchable guardians of secularism, as enshrined in the constitution.

    My comments-
    I don’t see how much longer it will take before the Ezekiel 38 coalition has solidified it’s base of power and mustered the will to attack Israel. We seem to be quickly marching unavoidably in that direct. As we know from past experience – these things can sometimes slow down, but at the moment I’m still waiting to wake up one morning to find the world has exploded into war and that the fulfillment of many prophetic texts is upon us.

    Has anyone heard from exdrifter , milo 3 and shampoo lately? I would love to hear their thoughts on this.

    I recall back in 2007 how we discussed this ” potentially significant” event to be the ABOMINATION that causes desolation.

    Vic it was you that pointed out that our prayer partner’s scriptural confirmation is what led you to dig deeper into this “possibility “with the anointing of the Holy Spirit leading you. Your reply e-mail was what solidified it for me as we witness one of the 5 stones (the Lord gave the body of Christ) being put forth and used in this spiritual battle we are all facing right now.

    Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I sent it.

    To see the accuracy of it all coming to pass is overwhelming to say the least.

    Vic back in March of 2003 with the ” Road Map to peace” proposal the Lord sent a very clear warning to those who DARE to DIVIDE His land with the ” judgment and warning ” affirmation of Isiah 47… I fear that just prior to the ” revealing of the man of sin” there will be a devastating blow that he causes in order to usher in his evil 42 month rule after he is cast out of heaven ( he still has access now as the ” accuser” ) and was once again reminded of – Is 14 – They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, [and] consider thee, [saying, Is] this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

    My question is “when oh Lord does this scripture come to pass”? When satan is cast out? or when those in Judea flee?

    King James Version: Isaiah Chapter 47

    1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

    2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.

    3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.

    4 As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

    5 Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.

    6 I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.

    7 And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

    8 Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

    9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.

    10 For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.

    11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

    12 Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

    13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

    14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

    15 Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.

    “The Palestinian Authority is considering a number of options with regard to its push for full membership in the United Nations but the timing of those steps will be affected by current efforts to restart direct negotiations with Israel, PA envoy to the UN Riyad Mansour said Friday.”

    Among the steps the PA is considering, Mansour explained, are reactivating the application in the Security Council, moving it to the UN General Assembly, joining other UN agencies and the option of becoming a state party to various international treaties and conventions.

Sub-titled “The King Who Exalts Himself”…) Consider the following, Obama considers himself to be 4th best President ever! vs 40 “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle (Iran/Persia) 11:41-43 The king of vs-36 will enter the Glorious land.

Daniel 11:44 “But reports from the east (China) and the North (Russia) will alarm him. (recent U.N. Veto of Syria action…angers Obama) vs-45 “He will pitch his tents…” As this articles main topic. I believe these Scripture should be studied closely…as it’s happening in current time, yet to date I’ve seen nothing from the ‘Prophecy scholars’. Ezekiel 38-39 and Isaiah 17:1 are ripe for any moment.
