Why does this remind me of a bible verse?
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Why does this remind me of a bible verse?
Isaiah 17:1New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The [aoracle concerning Damascus.
17 “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city And will become a fallen ruin.
Jeremiah 49:24-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
24 “Damascus has become helpless; She has turned away to flee, And panic has gripped her; Distress and pangs have taken hold of her Like a woman in childbirth.
25 “How [a]the city of praise has not been deserted, The town of My joy!
26 “Therefore, her young men will fall in her streets, And all the men of war will be silenced in that day,” declares the Lord of hosts.
27 “I will set fire to the wall of Damascus, And it will devour the [c]fortified towers of Ben-ha

It's worse than that...Russia is an official ALLY of Syria...if Turkey attacks Syria, then Russia will level Turkey...then as Turkey is a member of NATO, the entirety of NATO would be obliged to respond to protect Turkey...even though the entire world would know it was completely contrived to provoke Russia into attacking Turkey.
There are currently some 4,000 Iraqi and some 4,000 Iran hired Shia forces in Syria. 400 Iranian IRCG officers are there to advise and command those. Hizbullah has send some 2,000 of its special forces Ridwan units. Russia has in addition to its air and air defense elements special forces and command elements on the ground. The Egyptian force with some 4,000 soldiers would not be huge addition but it would be a good united fighting element. The political support which such a unit symbolizes is certainly of equal if not more value. France, which feverish supports the Jihadis in Syria, would be completely embarrassed by such a move. The whole world would laugh over its sanction move against Russia when the "Egyptian" Mistrals come in support of the Syrian government under Russian command. If such an Egyptian move happens a Syrian government campaign towards Raqqa is suddenly not only possible but even likely. The Egyptian army has some experience fighting Jihadis in the Sinai. It is not overly shy of taking casualties and it hates the Islamists. It can easily reinforce its own units on the ground with whatever number is needed. If Egypt is serious with this, ISIS in Raqqa is toast and all U.S. plans for a "Salafist principality" in east-Syria and west-Iraq will be in shambles.

This video is merely a fictional dramatization, it is not real and is not happening in fact.
Update 16th July 2016 - new updated version now available (see youtu.be...) reflecting change of British Prime Minister. Completely new version now in production for August or September release, plus a special version for use on Christmas Day 2016.
Please remember that this is a dramatization, it is fictional and not really happening.
Update 12th July 2016 - this video is now redundant due to the change of Prime Minister in the UK. I will keep it online but will be releasing an updated version in the next week or so, and a more substantial new version in August/September based on the many comments, suggestions and ideas of the community. Thanks everyone for the great support.
Originally designed for fear response testing. This video is merely a dramatization, it is not real.
This video presents a live BBC news broadcast showing escalating conflict between Russian and NATO forces, culminating in a full scale strategic nuclear attack against the United Kingdom.
Please use this video with due consideration. While you are welcome to copy and use this video, in doing so you accept full and absolute responsibility for any and all consequences as a result thereof.
The content and implications of a scenario such as the one presented in the video are unsettling, and is intended to remind people how quickly things might change, how important it is to value what we have and to take less for granted, and to recognise how fundamentally unprepared we are as individuals and as a society for any such event.
If you want to to share reaction videos, remember to ensure reasonable video and sound quality. It is a long video so there is no need to post the full length of your recording, perhaps just key reaction shots during and towards the end of the broadcast.
Constructive comments and opinions are really welcome. We can provide lower or higher resolution versions of this upon request.
