Sheepdog 112: Western nations ought to fear Eurasian politics and super-weapons
The doomsday aspect of nuclear combat is self-evident, and those weapons are unprecedented of only about 70 years old. There are some new super-weapons and revolutions in battle-space (cyber warfare and space warfare) that make the Cold War look tame.
During the Revelation, there will be great wars and many wars; division and sword.
Matthew 10:34 (ESV) “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.
Luke 12:51 (ESV); a parallel verse
Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.
When I tell folks that Europe will be a key player in the takedown of the US, the most common reaction is incredulous and “no way.” They can’t imagine it, because Europeans are so “nice” and “peaceful.” They forget that European nations have been warring each other for centuries; WWI, GD, and WWII just happened (relatively speaking; within the past one century).
America is perceived as strong and aggressive. There’s some substance and backbone to this reputation, its true that right now US is a very powerful empire with many ships and aircraft, and a huge military budget that is equivalent to half (50%) of the world’s GDP spending on military.
I remind people of Ike Eisenhower and the standard that he set for conservatives. Nobody questioned or questions that Dwight was strong on defense (think 1950s America and white picket fences). Neoliberal, neoconservative and leftist war-hawks want you to believe that you need to be pro-war to be pro-defense. That’s a logical fallacy. It’s possible and even ideal to be pro-defense without being pro-war. Nowadays it’s a one-party system and the persons of the political-media industrial complex are deeply invested in the Big Lie. Independent professionals and real journalists look for and go after the Big Story that is real and true.
Regarding the one-party system, consider this revelatory blog series the Conservative Treehouse.
US foreign policy under Barack Hussein Obama has become radically more reckless and dangerous. Aren’t we basically already at war with China? There is the economic warfare, cyber warfare, espionage, black ops, Tianjin mysterious chemical explosions, and saber-rattling in the South China Sea. And US started a war to conquer Ukraine on the steppes of Russia. It’s baffling to me how anyone can still be beguiled by the deception of Obama wars at this point. If the goal was to reboot the Cold War 2 vs. a modernized and stronger alliance of China-Russia, then the foreign policy has been a disastrous success.
Meanwhile, US are despised because of our foreign policy and forced wars for non-US nations. It’s all about the Wall Street money and plundering to dismantle countries for cash, as in Greece. Greece is a Western nation where the people are now bartering for goods and social order has collapsed. When a nation’s money gets KO’d (knocked out; killed off), the nation gets KO’d.
Habakkuk 2:6-8 (NASB)
6 “Will not all of these take up a taunt-song against him, Even mockery and insinuations against him And say, ‘Woe to him who increases what is not his– For how long– And makes himself rich with loans?’
7 “Will not your creditors rise up suddenly, And those who collect from you awaken? Indeed, you will become plunder for them.
8 “Because you have looted [plundered] many nations, All the remainder of the peoples will loot you– Because of human bloodshed and violence done to the land, To the town and all its inhabitants.
The Hadron high-particle physics collider at CERN super-lab in Europe is a weapon of mass destruction. Nina Beety quoted ““The kind of black holes that Ellis has in mind are harmless ones, microscopic and incredibly short-lived,although produced, if they are produced, by the thousands or millions a year. “That will take time,” says cern’s director general, Rolf-Dieter Heuer”” http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-large-hadron-collider-ultimate-weapon-of-mass-destruction/5442232
The Anglo-American alliance is weak and going financially broke. The people and nation at large are woefully unprepared for a devastating war say vs. UN/EU/China/Russia. Canada, Australia and New Zealand have no military, having outsourced most of their defense to US/UK and NATO. The main 5-6 Anglo-American nations are US/America (320 million people), UK/Britain (64 mil), South Africa, (55m), Canada (36m), Australia (23.9mil) and New Zealand (4.6mil).
The US is devastated by Federal Reserve policies (secret trillions) that plunder the American people and spread the wealth around, trickling upwards. Multinational shadow government is the power behind the throne of most nations. NATO War will be a geopolitical weapon of mass destruction that is ultimately to dismantle the profitable American empire and give her wealth unto the beast. Revelation 17 is a parallel chapter that introduces Mystery Babylon.
Revelation 17:15-18 (KJV)
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Holokaustos is the Greek word for “great destruction by fire.” Several types of destructive flame include: classic gunpowder, cannon and artillery, napalm, nuclear, chemical explosion, thermite; fiery astro strike (as in comet or meteor strike, even asteroid event).
Genesis 19:24 (KJV) Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
ESV and NIV translate sulfur in lieu of brimstone.
The destruction of Mystery Babylon unfolds in Revelation 18:7-10
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
Rich detail and noun choices are given for the wealth of Mystery Babylon, who is identified with America and Manasseh.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
WMDs and possible super-weapons of mass destruction in 21st century wars are a new paradigm. They’re not all fire weapons, all of them are essentially holokaustos weapons (great destruction, as in by fire). Some of the WMDs (conventional and unconventional warfare) are: heavenly and natural disastrous fire, blitzkrieg warfare (several world wars), nuclear combat, and other fiery weapons; global jihadism and terrorist attacks (ISIS and NBC); NATO War; civil wars and civil massacres; and -black holey theoretical physics weapons.
There is also the matter of US being primed by multinational shadow government for a red wedding and sacrificial flaming phoenix role. Mainly, the West is vulnerable to getting wiped out electronically by preemptive strike that would occur first and concurrently in the battle-spaces of cyber/information and outer space.
Super-weapons in the hand of an alliance of beasty superpowers, and the current shape of the West, this story is talking about Big Danger. The point isn’t to frighten away people, although it’s surely one reason why I need Jesus, and why you do too. Selah.
