From the way things are shaping up, with a German-run Europe tilting towards Russia combined with Turkish involvement, it’s not difficult to see how a 200 million man army can be fielded, as prophesied in Revelation 9:16. Turkey comes into the fray as it aspires to be part of the EU bloc and is willing to offer large portions of its military in return. It likely won’t sit idly on its own and watch the EU form a new bloc with the SCO in some fashion.
This isn’t necessarily a prediction, but a possibility. However, one thing is clear: America is in suicidal decline and Europe wants NATO out. Europe, as mentioned by German political figures, can only have peace when it has peace with Russia.

The widening of the SCO’s membership to include India, Iran and Pakistan will accrue numerous advantages to the group and strengthen its capacity to realise its goal of regional peace and stability.
