It is surprising how the recent announcement of the Obama administration to arm Syrian rebels (and potentially provide air support) has met with little or no comment from the press, although most Americans want to stay out of Syrian civil war. When George Bush was president, according to the press, finding that Saddam Hussein had used chemical weapons was not sufficient to justify involvement in removing him from office (since nobody ever found “weapons of mass destruction.” Now, the Obama administration is claiming there is evidence that the chemical weapon sarin had been used on Syrian rebels, although no specifics have been given by the White House.
The problem with supporting Arab rebels is that regimes that replace more “moderate” bad dictators tend to consist of more radical Islamic governments. I see this tendency as potentially resulting in the eventual fulfillment of end times prophecy of Revelation 20:9, when the enemies of Jerusalem surround the city in preparation to attempt to destroy it. To find out the result of the conflict, please read Revelation chapter 20.
