Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov reaffirmed his commitment to send troops to monitor the cease-fire in Lebanon today. Russia already has 300 military engineers working on rebuilding infrastructure in Lebanon under UNIFIL, but according to Ivanov a second Russian contingent being sent to the country will not operate under command of the United Nations. It is expected the military engineers will return to Russia within six weeks.
Quote: "Russia is sending a peacekeeping force to Lebanon, which will operate independently of the UNIFIL force currently stationed in the region, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said on Friday. Ivanov said that the Russian force would be sent in coordination with the Lebanese government.
Interestingly, speculation is rife in Russia about who will succeed President Putin in 2008. One of the potential candidates is Sergei Ivanov himself. I've often wondered how the international community could be so spineless as to not bother to repel a Russian/Islamic invasion of Israel. But if it turns out that the only military authority in the Middle East (at Israel's northern border) at the time of the invasion may be the UN, suddenly everything becomes clear. The Bible states that at the beginning or during the tribulation period, Russia and the Islamic states will launch a massive invasion of Israel from the north...
...and the only opposition that will be put up by the international community will be to question Russia, "Have you come to take spoil?". The only nation to respond will be Israel, and they will use rockets to destroy the Russian and Islamic hordes.
...possibly nuclear weapons...
