Many may not agree with me on this but I do believe that the recent turn of events in Syria is through Divine Intervention. On Friday, it was almost a fait accompli that the United States was going to launch an attack on Syria, regardless of whether the American people, or the world for that matter, were against it. President Obama had backed himself into a corner and he had no other way out.
Then on Saturday, the world heeded the call of Pope Francis to participate in a day of prayer and fasting.
On Monday morning, Secretary Kerry makes a "rhetorical" statement that if Assad gave up his chemical weapons, the attack would not be necessary. In a matter of hours, the Russians endosed the idea, which was quickly followed by Syria's agreement. Now the Russians are preparing a blueprint for this new plan and the President can do nothing but let the process play out with diplomacy.
It is only through Divine Intervention that an "off the cuff" remark by a State Department official can lead to such a dramatic change in such a short perid of time.
Pope Francis, thank you and God bless you.
