Iran offers Russia joint naval exercise ~ By Aaron Klein

Last week, Iranian state-run media quoted senior naval commander Adm. Afshin Rezayee Haddad saying his country sent a destroyer and helicopter-carrying supply ship to the Atlantic. He said the ships will sail close to the U.S. maritime borders.

While Russia may not have responded to the Iranian offer of a joint naval exercise, Tehran’s ambassador to Moscow, Mehdi Sanayee, told reporters yesterday the two countries are looking for ways to expand ties.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have agreed on the expansion of ties between Tehran and Moscow,” Sanayee said.
On its own, this story is fairly benign. But in the mix of things, Iran and Russia in an alliance point to something far more significant. In 2009, Hal Lindsey wrote the following:
Hal Lindsey
Taking a step back and looking at the Big Picture, it is hard not to miss the fact that events are developing in concert with the ancient prophecies of Scripture.

The Prophet Isaiah foretold the “burden of Damascus” (Isaiah 17:1) in which the prophet predicts the overnight destruction of that great city in the last days: “At evening time, behold there is terror! Before morning they are no more. Such will be the portion of those who plunder us, and the lot of those who pillage us.” (Isaiah 17:14)

The Prophet Ezekiel predicts an alliance between Russia and an Islamic confederacy headed by Iran, or Persia. [Emphasis my own]
What Hal Lindsey wrote 5 years ago now has a lot more significance, especially with the horribly violent civil war going on in Syria. This is just another small piece of a much bigger picture. I'm just sayin'...

TEL AVIV – After reportedly dispatching warships to the Atlantic Ocean, Iran has now offered Russia a proposal to carry out joint naval exercises in May, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.

The officials told WND that Moscow is considering the proposal but that there was no immediate decision from Russia.

The officials said the proposal was likely a response to Iranian reports of U.S. vessels in the Persian Gulf.

There have been reports that the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman has deliberately spent time outside the Gulf as a gesture to Iran while the West attempts to implement its interim nuclear agreement with Tehran.
