  1. The Mongol Turks who invaded and now occupy the ancient lands of other far older civilisations like the Greek in what they now call Turkey can enjoy their land grabbing spoils for now.Because soon what they have stolen in the last 1000 years will come to an end.They will pay for their crimes against humanity over the centuries.And as it is written in prophecy,it is Russia who will send them to hell.
