Magog OTM (Magog On The Move)

It's another summer, a summer one year removed from warfare in the volatile Caucasus region, directly north of Turkey, Iran, the Middle East and Israel.

Following a month-long NATO military exercise involving 1000 soldiers from 14 nations in the Republic of Georgia, and which Russia declared a "provocation," the armies of Magog are once again OTM.

Russia's (Magog's) top military commander, General Nikolai Makarov, announced that large-scale exercises codenamed "Kavkaz-2009" will involve "all the brigades of the North Caucasus Military District, the Black Sea Fleet and Caspian Flotilla marine brigades."

Brothers and sisters, that is a HUGE military force. This is a message and a declaration of military intent and objective.

Keep an eye on the Caucasus for the literal fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39.

Russia Is Back on the Warpath - WSJ.com

Russia Is Back on the Warpath

With President Barack Obama's trip to Moscow on Monday, you might expect Russia to avoid stirring up any trouble. Yet the Russian media are now abuzz with speculation about a new war in Georgia, and some Western analysts are voicing similar concerns. The idea seems insane. Nonetheless, the risk is real.

One danger sign is persistent talk of so-called Georgian aggression against the breakaway regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which Russia recognized as independent states after the war last August. "Georgia is rattling its weapons . . . and has not given up on attempts to solve its territorial problems by any means," Gen. Nikolai Makarov, who commanded Russian troops in Georgia in 2008, told the Novosti news agency on June 17. Similar warnings have been aired repeatedly by the state-controlled media.

Independent Russian commentators, such as columnist Andrei Piontkovsky, note that this has the feel of a propaganda campaign to prepare the public for a second war. Most recently, Moscow has trotted out a Georgian defector, Lt. Alik D. Bzhania, who claims that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili "intends to restart the war."

Yet Russia is the one currently engaged in large-scale military exercises in Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and adjacent regions. Russia has also kicked out international observers from the area. On June 15, Moscow vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution renewing the mandate of U.N. monitors in Abkhazia because it mentioned an earlier resolution affirming Georgia's territorial integrity. Negotiations to extend the mission of monitors for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe have broken down thanks to Russian obstruction. Now, 225 European Union monitors are the only international presence on the disputed borders.

The expulsion of neutral observers seems odd if Russia is worried about Georgian aggression. But it makes sense if Russia is planning an attack.

What would the Kremlin gain? A crushing victory in Georgia would depose the hated Mr. Saakashvili, give Russia control of vital transit routes for additional energy resources that could weaken its hold on the European oil and gas markets, humiliate the U.S., and distract Russians from their economic woes. Mr. Piontkovsky also believes the war drive comes from Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who is anxious to reassert himself as supreme leader.

Still, the costs would be tremendous. Last year the Kremlin repaired some of the damage to its relations with Europe and the U.S. by portraying the invasion of Georgia as a response to a unique crisis, not part of an imperial strategy. Another war would cripple Russia's quest for respectability in the civilized world, including its vanity project of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

And after the patriotic fervor wears off, domestic discontent would likely follow. Moreover, Russia would almost certainly find itself mired in a long guerilla war. This would further destabilize a region where Russia's own provinces, Ingushetia and Dagestan, are plagued by violent turmoil.

Given all this, a war seems unlikely. What's more probable is that Russia will seek to destabilize Georgia without military action. This saber-rattling may be meant to boost Georgian opposition to Mr. Saakashvili.

Still, Moscow's actions are not always rational. If the pro-war faction believes that the Western response to an assault on Georgia would be weak and half-hearted, it could be emboldened. In a June 25 column on the EJ.ru Web site, Russian journalist Yulia Latynina writes that the probability of the war "depends solely on the Kremlin's capacity to convince itself that it can convince the world that the war is its enemies' fault."

CSTO is Magog On The Move

Just web-published this evening as an update to my blog...

Who is “Gog” and Why he’s NOT the Beast of Daniel’s 70th Week



Collective Security Treaty Organisation
Организация Договора о коллективной безопасности


02 October 2009: UPDATE - Armies of Gog, The Chief Prince of Magog, Rosh, Meshech and Tubal Initiate Military Exercises

The Russian-led military alliance of seven former Soviet Republics known by the acronym CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organization), the counter-balance to the American-European NATO alliance, began large-scale military exercises today at the Matybulak training grounds in southern Kazakhstan.

The name given to this CSTO military force is "Collective Rapid Reaction Force" (CRRF). One of the CRRF's principle mission objectives is to wage war on Islamic insurgent groups on the territories of the member countries: Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. Just another nail in the coffin of the Gog is Antichrist shoehorned eisegesis.

Not to fear everyone, I am sure it is all Israel’s fault and King Obama will come and fix the world.

Russia will stand down and there will be peace. Life will be good.

Janeane Garofalo, Michael Moore, Jodie Foster, Meg Ryan, Drew Barrymore, Danny DeVito, Ellen Degeneres, Matthew Perry, Billy Crystal, Sharon Stone, Bill Maher, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Oprah, on and on and on will calm the storm and help BO “right the ship.”

"The two countries should use all the existing opportunities and potentials to further deepen and boost their relations in all fields," Rahimi said during the meeting on the sidelines of a summit on Afghanistan on Tuesday.

Noting that the ground is ready for the promotion of ties between Iran and Turkey, he reiterated that the two countries can contribute unique roles in the region and the world by boosting their mutual and multilateral cooperation.

Gul, for his part, appreciated Iran's participation in the conference, adding that Iran's presence has brought more prestige and depth to the summit.

He also urged for the further development of ties with Iran in different fields, and said, "We should use all opportunities and potentials to promote the level of bilateral and regional relations."

Gul called for an increase in the volume of trade exchanges between Tehran and Ankara, and stressed the necessity for the establishment of a secure rail link to connect Pakistan to Turkey via Iran.
