Germany Increases Military Involvement in Afghanistan and Syria

December 18, 2012  •  From

Germany has said it will continue to intervene in Afghanistan and Syria. On Tuesday, President Joachim Gauck met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai in Kabul. Gauck said that Germany will continue to play a major role in Afghanistan after it withdraws its combat troops in 2014.

Berlin says it will provide training for Afghan security forces, and that it will also help the Afghan people with development and reconstruction.

On Friday, the Bundestag voted 461-86 to deploy Patriot missiles to Turkey’s border with Syria. The two missile batteries, along with 400 German soldiers, are part of a nato deployment that will last for one year.

Bible prophecy indicates that Germany will become much more involved in both Afghanistan and Syria. In both countries, Germany is looking to contain Iran’s growing influence. The Bible says that tension between Germany and Iran will ultimately lead to another crusade that will pit Catholic Europe against Iran and radical Islam.
