I have not been around as long a Moses, Church Mouse Guy, or the dinosaurs, but there is something about this situation in Syria that gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Focusing on the Middle East, I can clearly remember the 1967 seven day war. Then there was the 1973 War. Since then, there have been numerous conflicts between Israel and the Palestinians, and Hezbollah. The United States has involved itself in conflicts of Kuwait, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Afghanistan, Sudan, Somalia, and Lebanon. They were all serious, but seemed to pass without spreading. I cannot shake the feeling, and cannot pinpoint why, but this one feels different. This feels like something that could spread like wild fire. First of all, we have no support for this adventure into Syria, either from we the people, Congress, other nations, NATO, or the UN. It is obvious that Obama has already decided to do what he will do. Asking Congress and England, etc, are just window dressings. The President is going to address the American people Tuesday night about the crisis. Not only do we have no support, countries like Iran, Russia (and other former Soviet states) and China have made it clear they could support Syria. I guess it is kind of like a game of poker. One of the dangers of this getting out of hand is other nations perceiving Obama as weak, sort of like Khrushchev did Kennedy during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Sorry for all the rambling, but given that this nation is ripe for God's judgment, given our attitude for His Holy laws, and how much He has blessed us, does anyone here see this as more dangerous or different than other conflicts of the past?
