One night, the General decided that he had the solution to the problems that the America was facing, so he decided to take the fate of his nation into his own hands. He crafted a number of orders for the men on his military base to follow. He then ordered his pilots to drop a nuclear bomb, thus kicking-off World War III, which, at least according to his calculations, would have America come out on top, and allow it to survive a nuclear holocaust with an acceptable loss of only “10-20 million people”. Of course, no one else in his chain of command subscribed to his crazy ideology of a first strike, and that is why he took in initiative. Now, if you think this plot sounds familiar, that is because it is. It is the 1964 Stanley Kubrick movie — “Dr. Strangelove”. In that movie, a crazy man kicks off a series of events that destroy the planet, and despite the best efforts of other people to stop the looming apocalypse and the subsequent lessons that should have been learned, the leaders continue to fight and even propose a Nazi Übermensch/harem like program where —“200k people should be saved…the gender ratio should be ten females to each male" and the women selected for their sexual characteristics, and the men selected on the basis of their physical strength, intellectual capabilities, and importance in business and government.” Crazy, right?
Speaking of crazy, a few weeks ago, in August, Turkey invaded northern Syria. The generally accepted idea, at the time, was that it was joining the West’s fight against the Islamic State, although many analysts point to invasion as more of a “taking the fight to Turkey’s proclaimed enemy — the Kurds, in order to not let them establish a territory of their own.” Of course, as the Middle East Online wrote — “The Kurds were the only effective force on the ground in the fight against ISIS.” So, just let that sink in. The only group on the ground taking the fight to the crazies was now being attacked by a nation-state.
Then, a few weeks later, a ceasefire was negotiated between the two major powers in the region- America and Russia. ABC reported that — “The United States and Russia have hailed a breakthrough deal to put Syria's peace process back on track, including a nationwide ceasefire, improved aid access and the joint targeting of banned militant Islamist groups.” Of course, this wasn’t the first ceasefire, but the document that was signed in Geneva was hailed as a major step forward. There was optimism in the air.
Then, not even two weeks later, everything changed. CNN reported that — “US, British, Danish and Australian aircraft may have incorrectly assessed intelligence and targeted a site that killed more than 60 Syrian (Syrian Arab Army soldiers) near Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria.” That’s right. Although it is unknown as to why it actually happened, the fact remains that it did happen. And although mistakes do sometimes happen, it also just so happens that the Islamic State was able to capitalize on this “mistake”, as they launched an attack immediately afterwards. And of course, this meant that the ceasefire was dead.
Immediately afterwards, several things may or may not have happened. Sputnik reported that —“The Syrian intelligence possesses an audio recording of conversation between Daesh terrorists and US military prior to the Washington-led coalition's airstrikes on the government troops near Deir ez-Zor”. While Farsnews reported that-Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers' coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam'an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers…. Several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists' attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.” Get that? Foreign officers, from countries that, at least on paper are fighting the Islamic State, were directing the terrorist attacks in Syria. So, who exactly ARE the bad guys?
And hidden among all of this, there are rumors that America has now established up to 7 bases in Northern Syria. Of course, Reuters reported back in March that — “The United States has nearly finished setting up an air base in Kurdish-controlled northern Syria and was proceeding with the construction of a second base for dual military and civilian use,” so, this isn’t new news. But, the fact that America has boots on the ground is troubling, considering that in 2013, President Obama said — “He did not “foresee a scenario in which (there would be American) boots on the ground in Syria.” And yet, here we are. So, why is this important?
Well, according to The Express — “US special forces are encircling a jihadi stronghold in Syria claimed by ISIS to be in old Islamic prophecy as the site of the final battle — triggering the apocalypse.” The article goes on to note — “Dabiq — a tiny town in northern Syria — will see a "Major apocalyptic showdown with the armies of the infidel" that will result in the collapse of civilization….and Turkish troops backed by American commandos are understood to be just three miles from the town.” That’s right. In fact, the town is so important that — “ISIS even named its terrorist propaganda and recruitment magazine after the settlement. Jihadists believe the Prophet Mohammed remarked that "the last hour will not come" until an army vanquishes the Romans at "Dabiq or Al-A'maq". Romans, in this case, could arguably be Americans, or westerners, or even Christians.
But, it isn’t just Islamic prophecy at play here. Christianity also notes that Syria plays a role at the end of times. Damascus is the oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet, and has witnessed at least five thousand years of human history. An unfulfilled biblical prophecy notes that-“The city of Damascus will become a heap of ruins, utterly destroyed. Few, if any, buildings will be left standing.” And as crazy as that sounds, just search for images of the cities of Syria to see what they look like. In fact, the final battle is called Armageddon and according to the bible — “the [kings of the world] will meet and fight at place called Meggido”, which apparently is in Northern Israel and is only an 8 hour drive from Dabiq.
Religious prophecies aside, there is a third prophecy about end times that could be about to come into play. Albert Pike, author of Morals and Dogma, an esoteric philosophical book about Freemasony, allegedly predicted three world wars and wrote about them in a letter back in the 1870s. He wrote — “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the 'agentur' of the 'Illuminati' between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion….”
As news events continue to come at a faster pace, maybe we should take a moment to appreciate the gravitas of the situation. Deutsche Bank may be the new Lehman Brothers, kicking off the next round of a financial meltdown that could bleed over into the real economy, thus leading to more people not working and more difficult times for the average man. The armies of the world are not only gathering, but are fighting in one, very small country. Not against each other, at least not yet. Terrorist attacks and general uprisings are starting to become an everyday news item, not only in America, but in Europe as well. All of these things, and more, are also mentioned by end of times biblical prophecies.
So, what do you think dear listeners — “Have the End Times begun?”
