Acts of War

Updated on January 21, 2014

Historical Acts of War Against America

For over 30 years America has been bullied. Consider the following historical facts.

1. Fall 1979--Iran attacks the American Embassy
2. April 1983--The Beirut Embassy is attacked by a car bomb killing 63 Americans
3. October 1983--The US Marines Headquarters in Beirut is attacked with 2100 pounds of TNT killing 241 service men
4. December 1983--An explosive driven truck blows up the Kuwait Embassy
5. September 1984--A van crashes the Beirut Embassy gate
6. April 1985--A Madrid restaurant frequented by US soldiers was bombed
7. August 1985--A VW was driven into the Air Force base at Rhein-Main killing 22

8. October 1985--The Achille Lauro was hijacked tossing a wheelchaired man overboard
9. April 1986--TWA Flight 840 was bombed killing four Americans
10. 1988--PanAm Flight 103 saw the death of 259 over Lockerbie, Scotland
11. January 1993--Two CIA Agents were shot and killed in Langsley, VA
12. February 1993--Terrorists were arrested after a rented van was driven to an underground parking lot at the World Trade Center, killing six and injuring over 1,000
13. November 1995--A car bomb explodes at a US Military complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia killing seven
14. June 1996--A Truck bomb explodes in Dharan, Saudi Arabia destroying the US Air Force barracks, killing 17 and injuring 500
October 12--The USS Cole is attacked by a ship bomb killing many.

Finally the events of 9/11 took place and I wonder why. Why?

Do these actions by the US make sense to you?

      Thanks for your comment tinamarie. It is sad. What's even sadder is that the USA took all of that abuse before reacting.

      Christianity and Judaism represent the only true God, and mankind in its worldly system rebells against anything that has authority over man. It is an anti-Christ spirit to wreck God's sovereignty over his creation. It is a spiritual battle between Christ who has all authority and the Prince of darkness, the anti-Christ.

      AMen, I wonder why too, they just don't know the love and mercy of the TRUE heavenly Father.
