Iran, Syria, Lebanon, and Turkey have joined together in a strategic alliance, yet one other member has yet to be drawn to the region. This member of this growing coalition is Russia, they will soon be drawn to the region to provide a nuclear deterrent to any proposed Israeli or U.S. strike against Lebanese, Syrian, or Iranian territory. The time will come however that they will no longer view a defensive posture as productive and will join together and commit themselves in a offensive campaign against Israeli territory. These order of events were prophesied long ago by the Prophet Ezekiel.
