One of our readers brought this news story to my attention.
Since American and Turkish forces are building up along the old route (see map in linked story), Iran will start using another route to head west.
Whatever the preparations needed – whether weapons, tactics, organizations and even infrastructure – God is allowing Iran and the rest of the Middle East (and now possibly the Balkans) to prepare for the Second Signpost. I believe this news story reflects that idea. I find it interesting that the new route also goes right through the heart of ISIS territory in Syria.
Of course the day may come when, in the thick of the Second Signpost, Iran won’t fear American forces anymore.
