Meanwhile, the U.S. military is airdropping weapons, ammunition and medical aid to the Kurds fighting against ISIS in Kobani, and Turkey has agreed to allow Iraqi Peshmerga to cross into Syria to defend the city.
The battle between ISIS and the Kurds is providing the Peshmerga with modern fighting experience, which will come in to play should the current events in Iraq prove to be the fulfillment of Jeremiah's prophecy of doom on the land of Babylon. According to his prophecy, the spirit of the kings of the Medes -- today the Kurds of Kurdistan -- would rise up, and those people would become a "great nation" formed out of three factions -- Iranian (Minni/Manneaean), Iraqi (Ashkenaz/Adiabene) and Turkish/Syrian (Ararat) -- capable of attacking and defeating the army of the Chaldeans.
With the Iraqi Kurds now joining the fight in Kobani to assist the Syrian Kurds, will it be long before the three factions are joined into one, just as Jeremiah foresaw?
If ISIS is victorious in overcoming the Iraqi military and taking over rule in Iraq, they will become the army of Iraq, and the battle described by Jeremiah would be between the Kurds and ISIS-controlled Iraq, a repeat of the current conflict happening in northeastern Syria and northern Iraq today.
In Jeremiah's vision, the Kurds will soundly defeat the Iraqi army, and plunder her treasures.
Will we soon see this major battle occurring in the land of Babylon in fulfillment of the 2,600-year-old prophecy?
