Middle East Chaos-Countdown Armageddon?
Tensions are outrageously high in all the Middle East. Have you followed the news?
I just watched a video that was sent to me on Human Rights Watch and I was flabbergasted to the way humans are being treated throughout the Middle East.
You can personally watch that video here:
Let's look at what is happening and I will explain what I predict. We will take a look at the news from each country. We will also look at what the world's superpowers are doing and how it could affect the rest of the world.
Megiddo is in Israel; it is where Armageddonis prophesied to take place.
Prophecy states that all the armies of the world will gather there and will try to wage war against God.
The way things are going, armies are gearing up in the whole Middle East and none are very far from Megiddo either.
The majority of countries surrounding Israel have a hatred for them. We must always remember that no matter what, the Israelites are God's chosen people. I pray that the United States and all it's allies will always keep that in mind and will stay on the side of Israel.
Do they have nukes? Iran leaders have an all-out hate for Israel and the recent news even proves that more. Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Iran will aid anyone or any group who confronts Israel.
They have threatened the United States.
Predictions have Israel attacking Iran very soon. We will see, maybe Iran will attack Israel.
Egypt is in a complete disarray.
Street battles are going on and police and civilians are getting killed.
Ever since Hosni Mubarak was taken out of power, Egypt is in complete chaos.
What will happen? Will multiple armies rush in? The clock ticks as more and more bodies pile up.
Syria is in very close proximity to Israel.
Like Egypt, civil unrest is rampant throughout this country.
The U.N. has considered taking measures against Syria because of the bloodshed the government is taking against it's own people.
Russia isn't siding with the U.N. but with Syria. Russia supplies Syria with much of its weapons and I am sure Syria supplies Russia with oil.
Could this bring Russian troops to within walking distance of Armageddon?
The U.N. says that more than 5000 people have died there in one month. The question is: will Syrian President Bashar al-Assad step down or get tougher?
Well, now the United States left with their troops and no one really knows who is leading Iraq.
It is every man and woman for themselves it seems.
Yep, Obama said he would get them out and he did, but did it help or hurt?
Will a dictator worse than Saddam take it over?
One of the United States allies has its own uproar happening as we speak; with elections going on there are a number of protests and everyone is wondering who will be in charge.
Will Kuwait stay an ally of the U.S.?
We must remember, they are an Islamic government too and Islam sticks with Islam.
We must be careful of who to trust there.
Yemen is on the verge of civil war.
The old regime invaded the nation's newspaper and forced them to put the ousted President Ali Abdullah Saleh's picture at the top of it.
Will the citizen's allow their democracy to be stepped on in this way? Time will tell.
The picture shows how they do executions in Yemen. Quite brutal!
This country is like a roller coaster. One minute their the United States friend and ally and the next, they hate us. They have been voice-full about their hate for Israel too.
Pakistan had Bin Laden "hiding" right under their noses too and got angry when special forces killed him.
It is a good probability that Pakistan has nuclear weapons and we better pray the wrong person doesn't come into leadership there.
In my opinion, Pakistan is a time bomb that could explode at any moment.
Here is a Northern African nation that has had civil war going on for years.
Small children carry guns and grenades and it is utter chaos.
At any given time, I think their fighting could just spill out into the countries surrounding it causing an ultimate war.
It had been chaos in Lebanon after their leader was shot by rebels.
Lebanon is very close to Israel and has close ties with Syria.
Lebanon has always been a powder-keg, why would it stop being one now?
Many will say that there has always been problems in the middle east. The thing is; they were never to the extent they are now. Too many Islam run countries are going haywire.
If extremists take control, Israel will be in a "sitting duck" position. Will the United States then help them?
Could Armageddon be just around the corner?
One thing I know and I am absolutely positive of:
God Will Win!
