When Obama was elected President, and then after observing his passive attitude and reaction when dialoging with, and reacting to, actions with Islam, Russia, and China, I am even more convinced now that my viewpoint stands an excellent chance of being correct.


June 8, 2002


This is a question I have been asked over and over again for a long time. I was asked again on e-mail recently, and this time, rather than answering the query privately, I decided to make it a prophecy update, so that that in future I could just attach this update to any new query and save myself repeating it again.

The one thing that I learned in the National Security Agency which has been, is, and always will be the motivating factor in any decision made by any country, including the United States, may be simply stated in two words: NATIONAL INTEREST. Many will cry out and say, not so, we did it for humanitarian reasons, we did it to secure justice, we did it out of compassion, we did it out of love, we did it because we love freedom, we did it because we are a great nation: and on and on shall come statements from every realm of society, from “bleeding” liberal hearts to the “hardened” hearts of the extreme right, all giving different reasons as to why this country did something. But the truth of the matter is that, in the end, we always did it for what amounted to NATIONAL INTEREST.

The United States has quick response attack naval and marine forces in position at all times to put down a banana republic type of minor conflict on short notice. But in order to conduct a successful operation again a Jihad the magnitude of the coming attack of many nations against Israel, we would require some time to get enough regular ground troops in place to have a real hope of victory. It took us a very long time to get enough men and equipment into the Middle East to insure success in our victory against Iraq. The Scriptures indicate that 10 Islamic nations will be led by the Antichrist, and that they will quickly take Jerusalem and drive Israel into the Negev. When Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and Iran come pouring southward on both sides of the Samarian mountains, and the Palestinians break out in all directions internally from within the enclosed buffer zone, chaos will reign supreme from Dan to Beersheba. There will be so much inner mingling of the attack forces of Israel and those of the enemy with the fleeing civilian population that air strikes would kill as many on one side as the other. Since the U.S. is fully aware of the Israel War Contingency Plan to evacuate as much of the population as possible to the Negev if overrun from the north, it will set in shock and indecision until it is too late to do anything except help to evacuate some of the coastal population from Tel Aviv to Haifa into the Negev, and to air lift supplies into the Negev. The aircraft of the Islamic nations will be under orders not to fire on western power’s aircraft unless fired upon, because the one thing they will not want is for the U.S. to get actively engaged with them in an all out war. Once Israel has evacuated as much of its population into the Negev as possible, and the U.S. sees that the Arabs are not going past Beersheba, we will accept the status quo as best for all. Why? Because it will satisfy our NATIONAL INTEREST! How? Israel will be safe and we will still be able to receive Arab Oil shipments.


The Remnant of Israel, Past, Present, and Future!

Part 8

April 5, 2002

Revelation 12:5,6,17 – And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. [6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. [17] And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The man child seed of the woman is Jesus Christ. God promised in Genesis 3:15 that this seed would one day crush the power of Satan, but in so doing would suffer for the price he paid while walking and dying on this earth. Even though the woman is herself a Jewish remnant, there will also be a Jewish remnant within the remnant, a living remnant of believers who testify to the unbelieving Israelis that Jesus is the Messiah, and keep the commandments delivered to them by Jesus Christ. They are a sealed believing remnant of 144,000 Jews living among the one-third of Israel that flees to the Negev. This one-third will number between 1.9 and 2 million.

Revelation 7:4 – And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Zechariah 13:8 – And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.

Through the testimony of the 144,000, and the preaching of the two witnesses who lead them, it will cause all Israel to be saved when Jesus returns, and a spiritual nation shall be born in a day.

Romans 11:25-27 – For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. [26] And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: [27] For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

Zechariah 13:9 – And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.

Revelation 11:2,3 – But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. [3] And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Risks of war: Beware the factors that could draw in the U.S.

July 27, 2012 12:00 am

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Four factors, including two in American politics, raise the risk of the country being dragged into another war between now and the end of the year.

These are in play in spite of the obvious satisfaction of the American people that the eight-year war in Iraq has ended and the 11-year-old war in Afghanistan is now on a glide path to being terminated.

The first worrisome development is in Syria, where intelligence and other sources are just now discovering that the Syrian opposition includes al-Qaida forces. It is remarkable that anyone could have imagined that a rebel movement composed almost entirely of militant Sunni Muslims (who also form the core of al-Qaida), financed and armed by Sunni-governed states Saudi Arabia and Qatar, would not include important elements of al-Qaida.

What Americans must now watch out for is any tendency for U.S. leaders to use the presence of al-Qaida among the Syrian opposition as a reason for the United States to intervene militarily in the conflict, in effect launching America into another Middle East war after Iraq and Afghanistan.

The second development to watch is U.S. reaction to China’s effort to exercise influence in the South China Sea. Other countries in Asia, including Brunei, Laos, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam, share with China claims to little slices of rock sticking out of the sea that could serve as a basis for exploration of undersea mineral and oil and gas rights in the region. Those countries, quite naturally, would welcome U.S. support of their claims. But the idea of a U.S. military conflict with China as a result of such quarrels, which need to be resolved by negotiations among the Asian nations, lacks all merit.

Two other, American factors enter into the heightened danger of another U.S. war as Iraq has ended and Afghanistan is winding down. The first and most dangerous is that the Department of Defense and all parts of the military-industrial complex that depend on it for money are facing, absent congressional action, deep budget cuts at the end of the year. The formal term for what will happen if the Congress doesn’t agree on more selective spending reductions is sequestration. Major wailing is already being heard over the claimed potential weakening of the nation’s defense posture if the government-wide cuts are allowed to include the Pentagon.

Why the United States shouldn’t enjoy a peace dividend after the end of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars has not yet been explained by those trying to avoid the military cuts.

The other obstacle to America being able to shift priorities and concentrate on domestic needs, as opposed to fighting another expensive and questionable war, is a possible “October surprise.” Such an election-year event would have the administration of President Barack Obama starting something prior to Nov. 6 in order to influence the outcome — something, for example, that might suddenly give him the mantle of a “war president,” which usually conjures sympathy and allegiance from the voters. Think of President George W. Bush in 2003.

Mr. Obama has showed no tendencies in that direction, but as the race heats up, who knows?

Assad’s tanks roll in as Russians warn of tragedy

Another massacre looms as government forces bombard rebel-held city

Paul Schemm

Sunday, 29 July 2012

Syrian government tanks backed by attack helicopters launched an assault yesterday to regain control of Aleppo, the country’s second city, after rebels seized several areas. The fight for the city, a major commercial centre, raised fears among activists and the international community that a fresh massacre was likely within days.

Russia, Syria’s longtime ally, added to an international chorus of alarm warning that a “tragedy” was imminent in Aleppo. Sergei Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister, said it was unrealistic to expect the Syrian army to stand by while rebels were trying to take over major cities. Mr Lavrov also said that Moscow was “not thinking about” granting Syria’s President Assad asylum.

Fighting centred around the south-western neighbourhood of Salaheddine, one of the first areas seized by the rebels after they were routed from the capital, Damascus. Activists said helicopters strafed the area and rebels faced artillery barrages and tanks.

Mohammed Saeed, an Aleppo-based activist, said the government counterattack had begun and rebels were fighting back. “Thanks be to God, they haven’t succeeded in entering any of the neighbourhoods yet,” he said.

Though Western media is largely unable to gain access to the areas held by rebels, the BBC reported a heavily artillery bombardment could be heard throughout Aleppo, and there were reports of heavy casualties.

An emergency call went out to doctors to help. It said there had been constant shelling and mortar rounds all day, together with weapons fire from helicopters. A steady stream of vehicles has been heading out of the city carrying hundreds of families trying to escape the violence and deteriorating conditions.

President Bashar al-Assad’s forces are massed outside the city. Mr Saeed said rebels from around the country have also been pouring in to help defend the areas under their control. “About 1,000 fighters have come from the Free Syrian Army from outside the province to help,” he said.

State television reported that government forces had inflicted heavy losses on groups of terrorists, the term the regime uses for the rebels. The pro-government daily newspaper Al-Watan called it “the mother of all battles”.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the government attack started before dawn with the bombardment of several areas, followed by the movement of armoured vehicles backed by attack helicopters. Based on reports from contacts on the ground, SOHR reported attacks in the north-eastern area of Sakhour as well as other areas, and said the rebels had disabled a number of the regime’s armoured vehicles.

The international community has expressed growing concern there could be major bloodshed as Syrian troops retake Aleppo. But Western nations and their allies have found themselves powerless to prevent the situation from deteriorating despite a series of diplomatic efforts, including a ceasefire agreement that didn’t take effect.

“The regime’s destruction of its own city shows the level of oppression that has been reached in Syria,” said the Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, speaking yesterday. “We will do our best to stop this oppression,” he said.

Defending the regime in Damascus, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said: “Now the city of Aleppo is occupied by the armed opposition; another tragedy is imminent there,” he said.

“How can it be hoped that in such a situation the government will simply give in, say, ‘OK, I wasn’t right, overthrow me, change the regime’? It’s simply unrealistic.”

Russia has been a key source of support for Syria, although Moscow officials have said in recent months they are simply taking a more even-handed approach while the West offers blind support to the rebels.

It has been a difficult two weeks for the Syrian government with rebel assaults first on the capital, Damascus, then on Aleppo, as well as several high-profile defections and a bomb that killed four top security officials.

The regime, however, launched a swift counter-offensive and quashed the assault on the capital with a combination of heavy weapons and house-to-house searches. Scores of people were killed. Opposition activists said they expected similar tactics in the coming days to keep Aleppo from falling into rebel hands.

With a population of about three million, Aleppo is Syria’s commercial hub, a key pillar of support for Assad’s regime. The rebels are outgunned by the Syrian forces, making it difficult for them to hold any territory for long. They risk being annihilated by Assad’s superior firepower and may yet decide to withdraw to preserve their forces. Their run on Damascus and Aleppo, however, suggests they could be gaining in power and organisation.

Saudi Arabia and other nations have spoken positively of arming the rebels, though no country is known to be doing so. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia announced a national campaign to collect money for “our brothers in Syria” on 22 July, and yesterday it was reported Saudi donations now totalled more than $72m (£45m).
