Wars and Rumors of Wars

In the Book of Matthew, 24th chapter, Jesus' disciples asked Him what would be the signs leading up to the End Times and one of the answers He gave was about “wars and rumors of wars,” which He said would last until the end comes.

At present, there are about ten wars going on in the world, countless terrorist actions, on again off again territorial disputes and various raids and border conflicts.

The airwaves are rife with rumors of war, with major saber rattling going on in Russia and North Korea and uncountable credible terrorist threats toward our country.

After Obama's foolish move of lifting sanctions and giving Iran hundreds of millions of dollars in cash, the Mullahs are becoming belligerent, violating UN directives and basically ignoring any restrictions the Obama Accords may have put in place.

Jesus mentioned a time when Jerusalem would be surrounded by armies and as things stand now, the only bordering country Israel is at peace with is Jordan and the amount of Palestinian refugees in that country, in conjunction with agitation from outside forces could tip the scales in a short time.

Russia's forays into the Crimea and the Ukraine largely went unanswered under the Obama administration, as did their insurgency into Syria in support of Bashar al-Assad and anybody with enough brain power to pick up a soup spoon has to acknowledge that the recent chemical attacks had, at least, their tacit approval.

In my opinion the most dangerous and volatile piece of this global puzzle is China. China tends to keep their feelings to themselves until they are ready to move, they act without notice and dares the world to do anything about it.

China is capable of mounting a standing army of millions and millions of ground troops, and thanks to their abundant trade affluence, have been able to finance the latest in modern weapons and military technology.

As China becomes stronger and more confident look for them to make a move in Taiwan
which they have always considered to be a part of Mainland China and - I think - have just been biding their time waiting for the opportune political situation to present itself before they make their move.

India and Pakistan's animosity toward each other are well-known and with both having nuclear weapons a shooting war between them could turn into something we don't even want to think about.

The Turks absolutely hate the idea of an independent Kurdistan and would like nothing better than putting an end to that dream.

North Africa has always been an unpredictable and volatile region with the rise and fall of dictatorships, a haven for terror groups where whoever has the most guns rules until somebody else gets more guns and changes the balance of power.

It's a well-known fact that most, if not all, of the Muslim countries of the Middle East and Southwest Asia despise Israel and many even deny it's right to exist, one of the few things they can actually agree on and no matter how many "peace processes" are drawn up and implemented by the western powers, it is always in the back of their minds that Israel must be destroyed.

Yes, we live in a dangerous and volatile world with a short fuse, with patches of rabid dissention and age old vendettas, ancient enmities and hatred that has been passed down from one generation to the next, conditioning the next generation to carry on the fight until their enemy is totally destroyed.

Wars and rumors of wars until the end.

Is America prepared to face the treacherous decades ahead, to be powerful enough politically and militarily to face down any threat to the Mainland or our allies?

We'd best be about getting there.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

When a man with no military experience tries to lead a powerful military, the outcome is seldom good. When that man is
When a leader without military or diplomatic experience tries to pick his way through the tangle of foreign policy, the outcome is seldom good. When that leader acts on a whim instead of a plan, acts on instinct instead of solid understanding, and consciously ignores and marginalizes voices of dissent, we are all in trouble. We have now become part of the problem, antagonizing even our closest allies without purpose or cause, tearing up treaties as if they meant nothing, and suggesting that coming to the aid of our allies in the event of war is a bad deal. We have pushed the world closer to war in just a few short months. We cannot complain. We are now part of the problem.

would you quit lying?
the Mullahs are becoming belligerent, violating UN directives and basically ignoring any restrictions the Obama Accords may have put in place. - This is simply not true.

Wars... don't believe the media about the Ukraine.
As someone with family in both Eastern and western Ukraine I can tell you that you cannot believe the mainstream media about what is going on there. As my family will tell you, Russia did not invade the Ukraine. The people of Crimea exercised the rights granted by their constitution voting not to recognize the neo-Nazi regime supported by Senators John McCain and Chris Murphy. Otherwise, spot on Mr. Daniels!

In the news today
From Charlie: After Obama's foolish move of lifting sanctions and giving Iran hundreds of millions of dollars in cash, the Mullahs are becoming belligerent, violating UN directives and basically ignoring any restrictions the Obama Accords may have put in place. In the morning news: Iran is sticking to the terms of its nuclear deal made with the Obama administration, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has concluded.

In the news today... continued.
Let's fix Diana's post. "... but he questions whether sanctions should keep being lifted, given Iran's continued support for terrorism." That's better.

A note
It might have been unclear but my post relates to whether or not Iran was abiding Obama's Iran deal. According to the Charlie, they are not. According to the Secretary of State, they are.

Sign Of The Times
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie it is a sign of the times, but I must say that the way President Trump and Vice-President Pence are conducting business make me walk a little taller and act a little prouder as an American. I still stand by what I said 18 months ago that I would rather die fighting for President Trump than cower down to the ilk of Obama and Hillary. Times are good for the working man and I was blessed to read Chuck's post last week. nuff said God Bless Plowboy
