The current war between Armenia and Azerbaijan is in fact a continuation of an on-off conflict that has continued since the late 1980s. What is new is the technology at use.
Erdogan backs Azerbaijan with the aim to ‘Make Turkey Great Again’. The Turkish leader has made little secret of a broader agenda, characterizing his government’s stance as an expression of its deserved place as a leader in the world order (a revived Ottoman Empire). As I have mentioned many times now, Turkey features prominently in Biblical “end times” prophecy particularly as the goat in Daniel 8.
Turkey has played an immense role in helping build Azerbaijan’s military.
Turkey has used its drone force to destroy dozens of tanks and other armored vehicles and artillery in northern Syria. It has positioned itself as one of the world’s major producers of armed drones and unmanned combat air vehicles (UCAV’s). Erdogan’s success with the drones in Syria and now the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is most likely one of the reasons he has been so outspoken about his aim to “Make Turkey Great Again
Research by Forbes indicates that Armenian losses currently include nearly 200 armored vehicles and over 300 soft-skinned vehicles, all destroyed by unmanned drones. To be sure, the tanks destroyed by the drones were relatively geriatric Soviet-era T-72’s, but the top armor of tanks is always the weakest — and that’s where the drones’ missiles always strike.
At the same time, Turkey (Goat/Sunni) is exerting its military strength in Azerbaijan and Syria, Iran (Ram/Shia) is even more aggressive with its proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Gaza. It is only a matter of time before we see the Goat and Ram conflict outlined in Daniel 8.
“And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power.” Daniel 8:5b-7
