Trump orders full withdrawal of US forces out of Syria
An apparent complete cooperation with Turkey
By Craig C. White
There are about 2,000 US troops in Syria. They had been helping the Kurds to fight against ISIS in Syria. But lately the US forces have been guarding the northeast Syrian border against a Turkish attack on the Kurds. Turkish President Erdogan considers the Kurdish forces in Syria to be terrorists. This week Turkish President Erdogan threatened to launch an immediate offensive into northeastern Syria. The Turkish Army has already swept through most of the Kurdish held territory in northwestern Syria. Now Turkey is threatening to clear the Kurdish forces located to the east of the Euphrates River. Over the past couple of weeks Turkish President Erdogan has been wrestling with US President Trump regarding US support of the Kurkish forces in Syria. Over the past couple of days it has been reported that Turkish President Erdogan said that President Trump has agreed to cooperate with Turkey inside of Syria. Now President Trump has ordered the full withdrawal of US forces from Syria.
The US believes that it is in their best interest to minimize the influence that Russia and Iran will have over a post war Syria. It seems that Trump has placed all of his hopes on his presumed NATO ally Turkey. Hopefully this cooperation doesn’t come at the expense of the Kurds.
Ever since Turkey has begun their systematic war against the Kurds in Syria, the Kurds with help from the US forces have been forced to defend themselves from Turkey. Because of that, over the past year the fight against ISIS has been somewhat neglected. Withdrawing US troops gives ISIS even more room to recover. It also leaves the Kurds very vulnerable. The worst immediate outcome of pulling US troops out of northeastern Syria would be a Turkish attack on the Kurds east of the Euphrates River and the retaking of Kobani by ISIS.
According to the Bible; Turkey will conquer Syria, destroy Damascus, and reconstitute the Turkish ruled Ottoman Empire.
The Turkish Army is now arrayed against Hamah and Tell Rifaat in northwestern Syria. The Prophet Jeremiah says that when Hamah and Tell Rifaat hear evil reports then the residents of Damascus will flee and Damascus will be destroyed. Tell Rifaat is called Arpad in Jeremiah 49:23.
Jeremiah 49:23 Concerning Damascus. Hamath is confounded, and Arpad: for they have heard evil tidings: they are fainthearted; there is sorrow on the sea; it cannot be quiet.
A side note: Russia is thrilled that Turkey has now minimized US influence over post war Syria. This should give Turkey more political capital over Russia when Turkey finally launches their attack against Hamah, Tell Rifaat, and Damascus. The Bible doesn’t tell us much about the fate of the Kurds in northeastern Syria but the northwestern cities of Hamah and Tell Rifaat will certainly be terrorized. Damascus will certainly fall.

I remember a couple of years ago, discussing deals being made between Russia, Turkey, and Iran for land and carving up Syria. Looks like the bear is having Ukrainean and Crimean ribs, while Iran follows Turkey all the way to the Golan Heights. If the U.S. won’t oppose Turkey in Eastern Syria, then they will not stand in the way when the Turks head to Damascus. I am wondering why there has been no word from Assad in regards to Eastern Syria.
The Kurds in northeastern Syria are now considering asking the Assad regime for protection against Turkey. Also, Turkey and Iran are meeting today to discuss Syria. I have heard people say that Turkey and Iran are enemies but that is not true. Iran looks to Turkey and to Erdogan as the head of the Islamic Caliphate. Iran hates Saudi Arabia. So Iran is all for eliminating Saudi Arabia from being the center of Islamic worship. The next world empire will destroy Mystery Babylon or Mecca.
It occurs to me that we are now standing more squarely in the end times. Turkey is clamoring to expand their revived Ottoman Empire. The Turkish Army is arrayed against Hamah and Tell Rifaat as Jeremiah 49:23 says. Turkey will destroy Damascus and lead Iran and Al-Qaeda into northern Israel. Jesus will return to stop them. I hope these things happen quickly. Erdogan’s megalomania is making me sick.
Also the lack of understanding or interest by the Christian Church is nauseating. Jesus will spew them out of his mouth.
I feel the same frustration with fellow Christians that I can’t even have a conversation with about prophetic books. I put much of the responsibility for the lack of prophetic understanding and apathy square on the shoulders of America’s most popular writers of End Time Prophecy.
They will give an account for not rightly dividing the Word of God.
Thank you Craig for nearly five years of being awakened and blessed by your ministry. I know I have said this before over the past couple of years, but Matthew 13:57 is true. A prophet is not honored by his own people (my translation). I still believe that when all hell breaks loose in Damascus, and Turkey attacks Israel people will want to know who knew about this. The sad truth is, that all of the popular teachers will never apologize for their false narratives just as they failed to do with Y2K, and their failure to identify Islam as the anitchrist’s religion. Maybe that is why the consequences for false prophecy in the OldTestament were so harsh, because when there are false alarms and misinformation people quit listening.
Well brother, let’s take a big swig of Holy Ghost Mylanta and keep watching, praying, and spreading “High Time to Awake ” another year.
God bless you, Merry Christmas, and a happy new year,
