Syria peace talks in doubt over 'credible partners'

Peace talks in Geneva between Syria's warring parties are almost certain to be postponed after further diplomatic setbacks on Friday, as Russia announced its intention to ship more weaponry to the Assad regime. Heavy fighting continued on the ground in Syria, where it emerged that a British man and American woman had been killed, apparently while fighting with the rebels in Idlib, in the north, earlier this week.
The US and Russia had together conceived the Geneva talks between the Assad regime and the Syrian opposition, raising hopes that the two superpowers, long at odds over the civil war raging in the country, could at last make some progress in curbing the violence. But after the Syrian National Coalition leader George Sabra ruled out taking part while civilians were being killed and "in light of Hezbollah and Iran's militia's invasion of Syria", diplomats admitted that the talks would not take place in early June as scheduled.

A peace summit to try to resolve the situation in Syria was scheduled to take place on June 5th. However it is looking increasingly unlikely this will happen. Instead of finding diplomatic solutions both sides (Russia / Syria v UK / UK / Israel) are resorting to ever increasing arms shipments and military strikes. They cannot even agree who should attend this peace conference! Russia (and the UN!) want Iran there – America, Britain, Saudi Arabia refuse to allow Iran to attend. Many reports are saying that a failure to convene the Geneva meeting within weeks could see the escalation into war.
This conflict in Syria is lining up the nations ready for Ezekiel 38 to take place. We may not have long to wait to see many prophecies in relation to Syria being fulfilled. And like a domino falling over it will set in place a chain of events that will lead to Armageddon...

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. The nations are perplexed – this means no way out – no answers….
Luke 21:25
