Isaiah 17, the Burden against Damascus,

Damascus was famous since Roman times for their swords. They were forged from an iron ore imported from India containing Tungsten and Vanadium and carbonized using leaves rather than charcoal. Around 1750 the ore was exhausted and many have tried to reproduce the sword forging, none able  to duplicate it. It seems that the ore also contained carbon nanotubes making it exceedingly flexible and forge-able making them the sharp enough to split a hair.

Damascus is the oldest city that has never been destroyed. For this reason Isaiah has been questioned as a Prophet, since it has not happened yet. Yet today Damascus is in the news again.

Some years ago, then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visited Damascus to make diplomacy with Syria against the will of the State Department. What was she really doing?

She, an American infidel (Roman Catholic) woman was doing the sign of the cross inside the Ummayid Mosque. To her credit, she wore a proper hijab. Diplomacy at its best.

The destruction has begun, but the total destruction overnight is yet to happen.

This siege did not finish off Damascus.
