With "desolation" I take you mean the "abomination" or "desolationg sacrilege",
spoken of in Daniel (v15). Is that correct?

I will agree. At the time of the siege of Jerusalem there will be false

Another detail: v21 describes the great tribulation as "such as has not been
from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be." If we take
these words to mean what they say, it will exclude any and all interpretations
with more than one such "tribulation". If we agree it refers to the siege of
Jerusalem, and in Matthew I can't imagine you can get by that, then this is the
only tribulation Jesus foretold according to Matthew.
