2 Esdras 15 www.sacred-texts.com...


28 Behold an horrible vision, and the appearance thereof from the east:

29 Where the nations of the dragons of Arabia shall come out with many chariots, and the multitude of them shall be carried as the wind upon earth, that all they which hear them may fear and tremble.

30 Also the Carmanians (IRAN) raging in wrath shall go forth as the wild boars of the wood, and with great power shall they come, and join battle with them, and shall waste a portion of the land of the Assyrians

31 And then shall the dragons have the upper hand, remembering their nature; and if they shall turn themselves, conspiring together in great power to persecute them,

32 Then these shall be troubled bled, and keep silence through their power, and shall flee.

33 And from the land of the Assyrians shall the enemy besiege them, and consume some of them, and in their host shall be fear and dread, and strife among their kings.

34 Behold clouds from the east (CHINA most likely)and from the north (RUSSIA)unto the south (ARABIA), and they are very horrible to look upon, full of wrath and storm.

35 They shall smite one upon another, and they shall smite down a great multitude of stars upon the earth, even their own star (SPACE WEAPONS) ; and blood shall be from the sword unto the belly,

36 And dung of men unto the camel's hough.

37 And there shall be great fearfulness and trembling upon earth: and they that see the wrath shall be afraid, and trembling shall come upon them.

38 And then shall there come great storms from the south, and from the north, and another part from the west.

39 And strong winds shall arise from the east, and shall open it; and the cloud which he raised up in wrath, and the star stirred to cause fear toward the east and west wind, shall be destroyed.

40 The great and mighty clouds shall be puffed up full of wrath, and the star, that they may make all the earth afraid, and them that dwell therein; and they shall pour out over every high and eminent place an [/]horrible star,

41 Fire, and hail, and flying swords, and many waters, that all fields may be full, and all rivers, with the abundance of great waters.

42 And they shall break down the cities and walls, mountains and hills, trees of the wood, and grass of the meadows, and their corn.

43 And they shall go stedfastly unto Babylon, and make her afraid.

44 They shall come to her, and besiege her, the star and all wrath shall they pour out upon her: then shall the dust and smoke go up unto the heaven, and all they that be about her shall bewail her.

45 And they that remain under her shall do service unto them that have put her in fear.

46 And thou, Asia ("Asia" or "Asia minor"=TURKEY), that art partaker of the hope of Babylon, and art the glory of her person:

This is true. It's interesting, though, that the verse states "from the LAND of the Assyrians", and doesn't actually suggest that the Assyrians themselves will be going to war.

This would fit with a US occupation of Iraq; troops stationed in Iraq being used in a war against Syria, for example.

[edit]
Though with that said, this passage is incredibly vague...
Which probably contributes to the fact that Esdras is generally considered to be Apocryphal. Whereas the Bible names actual places, locations and nations aligned in the battle (or battles), and gives greater detail about what will happen. These passages have an almost Nostradamus-type quality to them; vaguery and minimal information which lend themselves well to an inevitable 'fulfilment' through any number of scenarios.

Given the timing of this thread, I suspected that the OP saw a reference to Syria.
So I pointed out where Assyria actually was, and I think his oblique reply is pointing to a map where the enlarged Assyrian empire includes modern Syria. But, as I said, the base of ancient Assyria is modern Iraq, where Ninevah can be found.
