Iran speeds weapons deliveries to peshmerga forces

An article at by James Rosen published August 27, 2014 reveals that Iran has "begun arming the Kurdish Regional Government in northern Iraq" in support of the KRG peshmerga forces pushing back the Islamic State advances.

The Islamic State fighters have "seized large swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq, and recently came close to overrunning Erbil, the capital of the KRG in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region," according to the article.

"We asked for weapons and Iran was the first country to provide us with weapons and ammunition," KRG President Massoud Barzani said during an appearance in Erbil on Tuesday with Iran's foreign minister.
"The State Department regards the development with apprehension," according to the FoxNews report.


A similar article at TIME suggests that, with the Iranian support, "it looks as if (the Kurds) will come out of the conflict better armed, with stronger international influence and recognition than before."


The Iraq central government, the U.S., the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Italy and now (it is revealed that) even Iran is arming the Kurds.  At some point, the Kurds are going to be awash in the latest weapons and bulging at the seams with ammunition.

Which makes the Jeremiah 50 - 51 prophecy that the nation to the north of the land of the Chaldeans will draw up battle lines against her, defeat her and plunder her, that much more plausible.
