  • Now, MiG-31BMs armed with R-37M missiles threaten a large part of southeastern Ukraine…without entering any of the areas in which the Ukrainian anti-aircraft defenses are operating.

Iran’s involvement in Ukraine should be a wakeup call for NATO to confront Iran

Revelations 6:3-4 “when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, “Come!” 4 And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword.

  • Iran’s belated admission that it is actively supporting the Russian war effort is certainly an alarming development, one that completely destroys the argument that Iran’s malign activities are solely confined to the Middle East.
  • NATO has already demonstrated a welcome display of unity in providing vital military support for Ukraine in its battle to defeat Russian aggression. NATO leaders must now take similar measures to support all those states, whether they are in Europe or the Middle East, who want to protect themselves against Iran’s intimidating conduct.
