I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Russian Warm Water Port In Syria?

Russia seems to be in the process of establishing a warm water port in Syria. It is dredging a Syrian port with an eye towards developing it into a full fledged warm water naval base complete with state of the art missile defense.

The port of Tartus in Syria will be the solution to the current hodge podge of ports that Russia now rents in the Crimea paying the former Soviet republic $93 million a year. Ukraine has recently asked for more rent money. Another harbor 90 km to the North of Tartus is also being modernized and Russia is also updating Syria's anti-aircraft defense.

These developments could change the balance of power in the region and bring about a dramatic change in regional politics. Modern naval power is nothing less than awesome.
