Italy to arm Kurdish forces

In an Associated Press article at CBC News | World posted August 20, 2014, it is reported that Italian Defence Minister Roberta Pinotti said that Italy intends to supply "light, portable arms for the Iraqi Kurdish forces battling ISIS."

The article states that the "ISIS blitz has forced some 1.5 million people to flee their homes since June, while thousands more have died, prompting the UN to declare its highest level of emergency last week."

According to the release, the gains made by the militants "have brought U.S. forces back into the conflict for the first time since American troops withdrew from Iraq in 2011."

The United States military began carrying out "dozens of airstrikes in Iraq" on August 8th.


Jeremiah the hebrew prophet saw the rise of the Medes into a military power capable of defeating the army of the land of Babylon. The Medes are the modern-day Kurds, and Iraq itself is the modern manifestation of the "land of Babylon" -- the "land of the Chaldeans."

The Kurds of Kurdistan are now being armed by the Iraq central government, France, the United States, the UK, Canada, Germany and now Italy.

If this build up continues, the Kurds will find themselves strengthened into one of the region's most formidable fighting forces, fulfilling one of the key elements of Jeremiah's 2,600-year-old prophecy.
