An average of 6,000 Syrians a day have fled their war-torn country since the beginning of 2013, in what the United Nations considers one of the worst humanitarian crises in recent history. More than 1.8 million Syrians have officially registered as refugees since the start of the conflict in March 2011, taking shelter in neighboring countries Jordan, Iraq, Turkey and Lebanon.

Zaatari is now home to approximately 150,000 Syrians, a number that would equal the population of Jordan's fifth-largest city.

I've seen refugee camps before - short of a prison or a concentration camp, they are about as close as I can imagine to Hell on Earth. This is by far the largest refugee camp I have ever seen in my entire life.

Syria is an extremely complex situation and a no win for the U.S. The revolt is being lead by Islamic extremists. If we support them and supply them with arms, we could be sentencing two and a half million Christians in Syria to death. On the other hand, hundreds of thousand of innocent people will die if we don't act. Already the Jihadists rebels are attacking foreign workers. There are about ten different factions in Syria that will be fighting with each other for years to come if Assad is ousted.

Some people believe this is a harbinger of the End Times. Consider: the Cold War was actually WWIII - it occurred worldwide for fifty years. WWIV = the Global War on Terror . . . can't imagine what WWV will be like but it will probably involve Israel, Syria, Iraq, Iran and Egypt; and if you know your Bible prophesy . . .
