Genesis 11:9 - Could Babel be the place of Armageddon?

Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Could Babel also be the place of Armageddon? Babel is Babylon, located southwest of the Euphrates River in Iraq. Beware, for in the last days four angels bound in the Euphrates River will be released to kill 200,000 men, Revelation 9:13-16. Many scholars believe that Armageddon refers to Megiddo, the biblical city where many notable battles were fought. However, just as in the beginning so will it be in the end, that all nations will gather together in Babel.
And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. Revelation 14:6-8
