US: Missile transfers could lead to war

Ezekiel 38:1-6 The word of the Lord came to me; Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: 'This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army - your horsemen fully armed, and a great horde with large and small shields, all of them brandishing their swords. Persia, Cush and Put will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah from the far north with all its troops - the many nations with you.'

US to keep 'all options on table' to press Damascus over scud missile transfers to Hezbollah, senior American official says; Syria's moves could affect war and peace in the Middle East, he says

Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs Jeffrey Feltman said Wednesday giving such weapons to Hezbollah would be "an incendiary, provocative action." He would not confirm reports that Syria has sent Scud missiles to Hezbollah, but he said the administration viewed the matter with the gravest concern.

The US will be keeping "all options on the table" to press Damascus to "reverse course," he said.

Earlier, Israeli officials have warned of the grave consequences of Scud missile transfers to Hezbollah.

"We will return Syria back to the Stone Age," an Israeli minister was quoted as saying in British paper, the Sunday Times.
