Russian Television Warns of Nuclear War Amid US Tensions !

Russian Television Warns of Nuclear War Amid US Tensions !

With diplomatic relations between Moscow and Washington at their lowest point since the Cold War, turning on Russian television can be an alarming experience. For the past month, Russian media outlets have been punctuated with reports asking people whether they are ready for nuclear war.

US Russia Nuclear War 2017-2018 - http://Alamongordo.COM

“If it should one day happen, every one of you should know where the nearest bomb shelter is. It’s best to find out now,” according to one particularly fevered report on the Russian state-owned channel, NTV.

Russia’s main current affairs show, hosted by a presenter known by critics as the country’s propagandist-in-chief, recently spent two hours warning that Russia would defend itself with nuclear arms. “We’ve had it with American abuse over Syria,” the show’s host, Evgeny Kiselyov, told his audience. “Impudent behavior,” from the U.S. towards Russia, he said, can now take on “nuclear dimensions.”

Anti-Americanism is not rare on Russian state news, nor is an inclination for the apocalyptic. But more notable than the intensity of the warnings has been how Russian government ministries have joined in the alarms in recent weeks. Since September, Russia has conducted a nationwide civil defense drill, purportedly involving 40 million people, preparing them for catastrophes — among them nuclear fallout. Russia’s military announced who would run the country in the event of war and ran an exercise simulating that in the south.

Even more bluntly, Russia announced this week it was moving nuclear-capable ballistic missiles into its Northern European enclave, Kaliningrad, putting them within striking distance of Western capitals. In the same week, Russia test-fired 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Such moves have further raised the temperature with the West, already exceptionally high since the U.S. publicly accused Moscow of trying to interfere in its presidential elections and efforts by the two countries to reach a cease-fire deal terrorists in Syria, collapsed amid mutual recrimination and the renewal of ferocious airstrikes by Russian jets on the besieged city of Aleppo.

But the blood-curdling statements and military posturing, however, are very far from heralding imminent war, analysts said. “It’s ridiculous,” said Aleksander Baunov, an analyst at the Carnegie Moscow Center. “It’s not preparation for war.”

Like other Russia observers, he said the atomic-fueled reports and exercises may have several purposes, but none of them were to prepare the populace for major conflict. The nuclear threats, while frightening, reflected an sense in Russia that they could be made without real fear of being taken sincerely.

“The ease with which people in this country use the nuclear threat in their aggressive rhetoric is truly amazing and of course alarming,” Maria Lipman, a veteran Russian analyst and editor-in-chief of Counterpoint journal.

That relative unconcern is perhaps reflected in that the war talk does not appear to have much traction among Russians. What’s more Baunov said, anti-Americanism not especially high among ordinary people currently, limited he said to official discourse.

That discourse, rather than heralding war, Baunov said, was meant to deter Western countries from intervening in Syria and in particular perhaps was meant to prevent the U.S. from responding too strongly to suspected Russian interference in the U.S. elections. Moscow, he said, is trying to set the field ahead of an incoming U.S. president, whoever wins.

“They want to touch bottom and then to try to go up,” he said. “Any responsible politician … if you are responsible and experienced, it cannot start with further downgrading already bad relations, if they are already at bottom.”

The fevered rhetoric on television and pointed deployments of nuclear launch vehicles recalled the height of the Ukraine crisis in 2014, when Russia too sought to guarantee against Western intervention and buttress support for its actions at home. This time, the chances of a real military confrontation between Russia and the U.S. have risen dramatically since Washington indicated it was considering launching airstrikes against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to halt his brutal bombardment of Aleppo and push Moscow and Assad back to the negotiating table. Russia’s Defense Ministry has bluntly warned the U.S. not to intervene, threatening to shoot down any aircraft targeting Assad’s forces.

But still few expect the Obama administration to approve such an intervention, which would abandon years of policy avoiding direct military intervention against Assad, at a moment when it also risked provoking an armed clash with Russia.

Lipman warned the two countries’ perilously diverging goals in Syria and an escalating logic in their exchanges, could see that confrontation spiral unpredictably out of control. “I think this is unprecedented,” she said. “One reckless move could turn what until know has still been a Syrian conflict into something I don’t even want to think about.”

Beyond geopolitical clashes, though, there may also be a more prosaic reason for the war talk — Russia’s military budget is currently up for consideration at a time when the economy is in trouble, weighed down by low oil prices and Western sanctions over the Kremlin’s foreign military ventures.

“The more tension the better for the Russian General Staff,” Pavel Felgenhauer, a military analyst in Moscow, said. “Tensions are going to rise and rise and rise.”

“The good news is no one really wants a war,” he added. “But it’s going to be a good show.”

For ordinary Russians it appeared an overly familiar show. Though often describing themselves as outraged by U.S. behavior in Syria, most seemed inured to the suggestions of possible nuclear doom, taking a more realistic view of the television warnings. Photos appeared on social media from a suburban apartment block where pranksters or enterprising fraudsters had pinned fliers to a stairwell asking residents to begin donating cash for the construction of a local bomb shelter.

“Hurry, places are limited,” the fliers read.

The 77 Minor Signs of Qiyamat

77 minor signs before day of judgement day

When the Day of Judgement, or Youm-al Qiyamah, approaches, the world will come to an end and all will be destroyed. Each and every individual will have to account for his/her actions, and their final fate will be decided by Allah. We have been warned about the approach of Qiyamat in many Quranic verses and Ahadith. There many signs that will tell us that the Day of Judgement is near, and in the recent times these signs have become more evident. Thus, the Muslim Ummah should be aware of this and each person should prepare himself by being virtuous and abstaining from sin.

Hazrat Abu Huraira narrates that the Holy Prophet said, “Time will pass rapidly, good deeds will decrease, miserliness will be thrown (in the hearts of the people), afflictions will appear and there will be much ‘Al-Harj.'” They said, “O Allah’s Messenger! What is ‘Al-Harj?’ He said, “Killing! Killing!”

5. Power and authority will be given to wrong people. [Bukhari]

6. Honesty will be lost. [Bukhari]

Hazrat Abu Huraira narrates that, while the Holy Prophet was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, “When will the Hour (Day of Judgement) take place?” Allah’s Messenger continued his talk, so some people said that he had heard the question but did not like what the Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Allah’s Messenger had not heard it. When the Holy Prophet finished his speech, he said,”Where is the questioner, who enquired about the Hour (Day of Judgement)?” The Bedouin said, “I am here, O Allah’s Messenger .” Then the Holy Prophet said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour.” The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?” The Holy Prophet said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour.”

[Bukhari]

7. The disappearance of knowledge and the appearance of ignorance [Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Ahmad]

Narrated Hazrat Abdullah and Hazrat Abu Musa: The Holy Prophet said, “Near the establishment of the Hour, there will be days during which religious ignorance will spread, knowledge will be taken away (vanish) and there will be much Al-Harj, and Al-Harj means killing.”

[Sahih Bukhari, Hadith no. 184]

8. A mountain of gold will be disclosed from beneath the River Euphrates, but we are not to take anything from it.

14. A man will pass by a grave and wish that he was in their place. [Bukhari]

Narrated Hazrat Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger said, “The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, (2) till about thirty Dajjals [liars] appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah’s Messenger, (3) till religious knowledge is taken away [by the death of religious scholars] (4) earthquakes will increase in number (5) time will pass quickly, (6) afflictions will appear, (7) Al-Harj, [i.e., killing] will increase, (8) till wealth will be in abundance – so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his Zakat, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person [to whom it will be offered] will say, ‘I am not in need of it, (9) till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings, (10) till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, ‘Would that I were in his place (11) and till the sun rises from the West. So when the sun will rise and the people will see it [rising from the West], they will all believe [embrace Islam] but that will be the time when: [As Allah said] ‘No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good [by deeds of righteousness] through its Faith.’ (Holy Qur’an 6:158) And the Hour will be established while two men are spreading a garment infront of them, but they will not be able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established when a man has milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk, but he will not be able to drink it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing a tank [for his livestock] is able to water [his animals] in it; and the Hour will be established when a person has raised a morsel [of food] to his mouth but will not be able to eat it.”

15. The conquest of Constantinople by the Muslims. [Ahmad, Muslim]

Hazrat Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger as saying: “The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A’maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of the people of the earth at that time will come from Madinah (to counteract them). When they will arrange themselves in ranks, the Romans would say: Do not stand between us and those (Muslims) who took prisoners from amongst us. Let us fight with them; and the Muslims would say: Nay, by Allah, we would never get aside from you and from our brethren that you may fight them. They will then fight and a third (part) of the army would run away, whom Allah will never forgive. A third (part of the army). which would be constituted of excellent martyrs in Allah’s eye, would be killed and the third, who would never be put to trial, would win and they would be conquerors of Constantinople. And as they would be busy in distributing the spoils of war (amongst themselves), after hanging their swords by the olive trees, the Satan would cry: The Dajjal has taken your place among your family. They would then come out, but it would be of no avail. And when they would come to Syria, he would come out while they would be still preparing themselves for battle drawing up the ranks. Certainly, the time of prayer shall come and then Jesus, son of Mary, would descend and would lead them in prayer. When the enemy of Allah would see him, it would (disappear) just as the salt dissolves itself in water and if he (Jesus) were not to confront them at all, even then it would dissolve completely, but Allah would kill them by his hand and he would show them their blood on his weapon (the weapon of Jesus).”

[Sahih Muslim, Hadith no. 6924]

16. Stones and trees will help the Muslims fight against the Jews.

Hazrat Abu Huraira reported Allaah’s Messenger as saying: “The last Hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allaah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”

Narrated Hazrat Anas bin Malik: I heard from Allah’s Messenger a narration which none other than I will narrate to you. The Prophet said, “From among the portents of the Hour are the following: General ignorance (in religious affairs) will prevail, (religious) knowledge will decrease, illegal sexual intercourse will prevail, alcoholic drinks will be drunk (in abundance), men will decrease and women will increase, so much so that, for every fifty women there will be one man to look after them.”

[Sahih Bukhari, Hadith no. 483]

20. People will strive for power about mosques.

Hazrat Abdullah ibn Umar said, “The Prophet came to us and said, ‘O Muhajirun, (emigrants from Makkah to Madinah), you may be afflicted by five things; God forbid that you should live to see them. If fornication should become widespread, you should realise that this has never happened without new diseases befalling the people, which their forebears never suffered. If people should begin to cheat in weighing out goods, you should realise that this has never happened without drought and famine befalling the people, and their rulers oppressing them. If people should withhold zakat, you should realise that this has never happened without the rain being stopped from falling; and were it not for the animals’ sake, it would never rain again. If people should break their covenant with Allah and His Messenger, you should realise that this has never happened without Allah sending an enemy against them to take some of their possessions by force. If the leaders do not govern according to the Book of Allah, you should realise that this has never happened without Allah making them into groups and making them fight one another.”

[Ibn Majah]

25. Only the rich receive a share of any gains, and the poor do not. [Tirmidhi]

26. The leader of a people will be the worst of them. [Tirmidhi]

[Tirmidhi]

34. The nations of the Earth will gather against the Muslims like hungry people going to sit at a table full of food. This will occur when the Muslims are large in number, but “like the foam of the sea”.

Hazrat Thauban reported that the Messenger of Allah said, “It is near that the nations will call one another against you, just as the eaters call one another to their dishes.” Somebody asked, “Is this because we will be few in numbers that day?” He said, “Nay, that day you shall be numerous, but you will be like the foam of the sea, and Allah will take the fear of you away from your enemies and will place weakness into your hearts.” Somebody asked, “What is this weakness?” He said, “The love of the world and the dislike of death.”

The prophecies of Buddha

The prophecies of Buddha

He Comes as . . . The Maitreya (Buddhist Prophecies)

“At that period, brethren, there will arise in the world an Exalted One named Maitreya, Fully Awakened, abounding in wisdom and goodness, happy, with knowledge of the worlds, unsurpassed as a guide to mortals willing to be led, a teacher for gods and men, an Exalted One, a Buddha, even as I am now. He, by himself, will thoroughly know and see, as it were face to face, this universe, with Its worlds of the spirits, Its Brahmas and Its Maras, and Its world of recluses and Brahmins, of princes and peoples, even as I now, by myself, thoroughly know and see them” (Digha Nikaya, 26).

Prophecies of Buddha - Buddhism predictions and visions - http://www.alamongordo.com

This prophecy by Guatama Buddha is very ambiguous, that is to say, it has very few details that allow us to probe into it and extract details that predict when Maitreya will come.  But there are a few Buddhist prophecies that are more specific to the time when the Maitreya will arise:

“After my decease, first will occur the five disappearances.  And what are the five disappearances?  The disappearance of attainments [to Nirvana], the disappearance of the method [inability to practice wisdom, insight and the four purities of moral habit], the disappearance of learning [loss of men who follow the Dharma], the disappearance of the symbols [the outward forms, the robes and practices of Buddhism], the disappearance of the relics…”

“Then when the Dispensation of the perfect Buddha is 5,000 years old, the relics, not receiving reverence and honor will go to places where they can receive them… This, Sariputta, is called the disappearance of relics” (The Surangama Sutra).

The above passage clearly predicts, as so many other religions of the world have, that when society degrades and God (and His religion) are thought of as second to intellectualism, then the Savior will appear.  Likewise, in the Bible, we find the confusion that must take place before the coming of the Messiah, and in THOTH we find an explanation for it:

“‘Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.  Even so. Amen.’ (Rev. 1:7).  ‘Cloud’ means confusion.  He comes whenever confusion comes to humanity.  ‘When righteousness is weak and faints and unrighteousness exults in pride [confusion], then my Soul arises on earth’ (Bhagavad-Gita 4:7).  ‘Every eye shall see him,’ means that those who have their eyes opened (third eyes) will see him.  ‘They also which pierced him’ means that those who pierced him will also see his glory.  When it is said that he will come from the sky, the sky means the same as heaven, and heaven means Pure Consciousness.  So he comes from Pure Consciousness, or he comes as an Avatar (god-man)” (THOTH, Revelation Of The Revelation, T1, V21-24).

We can see that the same conditions are given in all religions.  Each religion gives only a slightly different account of the times before the coming of the Messiah, and each religion likewise gives only a slightly different description of how the Messiah will come. Nevertheless, with all the promises of moral degradation and societal deterioration and likewise with all the promises of a coming Messiah, it must be realized that all the religions of the world, in their own manner, are predicting the same event.  This is to say that the titles Mahdi, Christ, Krishna, Shah-Bahram, Kalki, Maitreya, Muhammad, and the like, are interchangeable just as the prophecies that herald each of their appearances are likewise.  The world, in all its niches and groups, are awaiting the same thing, that they all await Maitreya.
One of the most significant of these prophecies of the world, are the ones that give dates or times by which we may recognize when the Messiah will arise.  The prophecy given by Buddha gives a near to exact date of when the Maitreya will come.  The clue that helps us to understand when the Maitreya will be manifested is:

“ . . . when the Dispensation of the perfect Buddha is 5000 years old.”

Buddha, who was sent to India, spoke to a Hindu audience, in terminology that they could relate to and understand.  Considering that Buddha was speaking to followers of Hinduism, He was speaking in terms of the Hindu system of dating.
Hinduism is expecting the appearance of the Kalki Avatar, shortly after the beginning of the Krita age and the end of the Kali age.  The exact date of when the Kali age ends and the Krita age begins is unknown.  However, it has been estimated that the Kali age ended at noon on the first of August 1943 A.D.  Assuming then that this date is correct, the Buddhist equivalent year (which pertains to the Dispensation of the perfect Buddha lasting 5,000 years) would be approximately the year 2,486 in the Buddhist era.

“If, Ananda, women had not retired from the household life to the houseless one, under the doctrine and discipline announced by the Tathagata, Dharma Ananda would long endure; a thousand years would the good Dharma abide.  But since, Ananda, women have now retired from the household life to the houseless one, under the doctrine and the discipline announced by the Tathagata, not long Ananda, will Dharma endure; but five hundred years Ananda, until the Dharma abide” (Vinya Pitaka II. 253 ff).

Buddha had previously promised that the Dharma would last for 5,000 years, which if broken down is really five periods of one thousand years, each period representing one of the five disappearances.  After the fifth period, that is five thousand years, the Dharma would disappear and the true message of Buddha would be lost. However, Buddha contests that because He has allowed women to participate in the fullness of Buddhist life, He would halve the time until the Dharma’s expiration from five periods of one-thousand years (5,000 years), to five periods of five-hundred years (2,500 years). According to Buddha, and explanation above, the Dharma would disappear 2,500 years after His Dispensation began (1957 A.D.), and shortly after the five disappearances, the Maitreya would come. This interpretation of Scripture is supported by a number of ancient Chinese’s Buddhist commentaries, here is one such example:

“The monks and stream attainers (followers) will be strong in their union with Dharma for 500 years after the Blessed One’s Parinirvana.  In the second 500 years they will be strong in meditation; in the third period of 500 years they will be strong in erudition.  In the fourth 500 years period they will only be occupied with gift giving.  The final or fifth period of 500 years will see only fighting and reproving among the monks and followers.  The pure Dharma will then become invisible (disappear)” (Abhidharmakosha, 4.12c. III. p. 41).

From these two examples we may conclude that Maitreya should arise sometime around 1957 A.D.  However, are there any other clues for the date of the Maitreya?  Yes, and we will review one more before we reach our conclusion:

“I have another prophecy, also, Tibetan: It is predicted that the manifestation of Maitreya shall come after the wars…” (Maitreya Lord of the World, by Dr. M. Doreal).

Here is the conclusion that we have reached: (1) The Maitreya would have to arise sometime after the Kali age and at the beginning of the Krita age, which would be sometime after August 1st, 1943.  (2) Around 2,500 years after the beginning of the Dispensation of the Buddha, the Maitreya would arise.  This would be around 1957 A.D.  (3) The Maitreya would come after the great wars, in an age that was beginning to prosper and rebuild.  With these three points we can reach our final conclusion that is: Maitreya will arise between the year 1943 A.D. and 1957 A.D.

[Note: The date of 1957 is based on dating 2,500 years from 544 B.C., one of the possible dates given for Buddha’s death (beginning of Buddha’s Dispensation, the “Buddhist era”).  Another possible date to begin this count is 483 B.C.  In this case, adding 2,500 years leads us to the date 2017.  The overall meaning is the same – we should expect Maitreya to come at this time in history – but the date of 2017 is especially interesting as it is the date Maitreya chose as the end of the 12,000 years of history of present man and beginning of the Golden Age!  For more information, see the Newsbrief article Buddhism and the Year 2017.]
More Hints About Who The Maitreya Will Be:

“The Lord replied, ‘Maitreya, the best of men, will then leave the Tushita heavens, and go for his last rebirth.  As soon as he is born he will walk seven steps forward, and where he puts down his feet a jewel or a lotus will spring up.  He will raise his eyes to the ten directions, and will speak these words:  ‘This is my last birth.  There will be no rebirth after this one.  Never will I come back here, but, all pure, I shall win Nirvana.” (Buddhist Scriptures by Edward Conze)

Buddha tells us several key things about Maitreya and Maitreya’s Message.  The first of these is that Maitreya will leave “the Tushita heavens.”  That is to say that Maitreya comes from heaven to earth.  The same thing was said about Christ in the Bible.
The words, “and go for his last rebirth,” refers to this being Christ’s final appearance on earth as Messiah that is recorded in all Scriptures.  He will bring the Final Revelation of God to man (Revelation chapter five).  He Opens the Book Sealed with the Seven Seals and Reveals the Unity of all Religions.  So, what Buddha is saying is that Maitreya (Christ Spirit) is the final appearance of the Buddha, as Kalki is the final Avatar of Vishnu and the Seventh Angel, Maitreya is on earth. When He comes a jewel will arise which is His Teachings.  The second meaning is concerned with Maitreya’s revelation of the unfolding lotus petal, which is the base of the Mission’s sign. And finally, in regards to the words, “This is my last birth.  There will be no Great Revelation after this one. Never will I come back here, but, all pure, I shall win Nirvana,” simply confirms the statement in the Bible said about the Seventh Angel,

“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel… the mystery of God should be finished…(Rev 10:7).”

Hillary Clinton, The Whore of Babylon

Hillary Clinton, The Whore of Babylon ?

The Whore of Babylon or Babylon the Great is a female figure and also place of evil mentioned in the Book of Revelation in the Bible. Her full title is given as “Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Abominations of the Earth.”

PASSAGES IN REVELATIONS

The “great whore”, of the biblical Book of Revelation is featured in chapters 17 and 18.
17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. [“Fornication” is interpreted/translated as “idolatry” in the Amplified Bible (AMP), the New American Bible mentions “harlotry”]
17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. [King James Version; the New International Version uses “prostitutes” instead of “harlots”].
17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. [King James Version; the New International Version Bible and the New American Bible use “hills” instead of “mountains”].
17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.
17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.
17:12 And the ten horns which thou saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
17:15 And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

SYMBOLISM

The Whore is associated with the Antichrist and the Beast of Revelation by connection with an equally evil kingdom. (The word “Whore” can also be translated metaphorically as “Idolatress”). The Whore’s apocalyptic downfall is prophesied to take place in the hands of the image of the beast with seven heads and ten horns. There is much speculation within Christian eschatology on what the Whore and beast symbolize as well as the possible implications for contemporary interpretations.

JERUSALEM

Alan James Beagley, David Chilton, J. Massyngberde Ford, Peter Gaskell, Kenneth Gentry, Edmondo Lupieri, Bruce Malina, Iain Provan, J. Stuart Russell, Milton S. Terry and theologians point out that although Rome was the prevailing pagan power in the 1st century when the Book of Revelation was written, the symbolism of the whore of Babylon refers not to an invading infidel of foreign power, but to an apostate false queen, a former “bride” who has been unfaithful and who, even though she has been divorced and cast out because of unfaithfulness, continues to falsely claim to be the “queen” of the spiritual realm. This symbolism did not fit the case of Rome at the time. Proponents of this view suggest that the “seven mountains” in Rev 17:9 are the seven hills on which Jerusalem stands and the “fall of Babylon” in Rev 18 is the fall and destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

Several Old Testament prophets referred to Jerusalem as being a spiritual harlot and a mother of such harlotry (Isaiah 1:21; Jeremiah 2:20; Jeremiah 3:1–11; Ezekiel 16:1–43; Ezekiel 23, Galatians 4:25). Some of these Old Testament prophecies as well as the warnings in the New Testament concerning Jerusalem are in fact very close to the text concerning Babylon in Revelation, suggesting that John may well have actually been citing those prophecies in his description of Babylon.

For example, in Matthew 23:34–37 and Luke 11:47–51, Jesus himself assigned all of the bloodguilt for the killing of the prophets and of the saints (of all time) to the Pharisees of Jerusalem, and, in Revelation 17:6 and 18:20,24, almost identical phrasing is used in charging that very same bloodguilt to Babylon. This is also bolstered by Jesus’ statement that “it’s not possible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem.” (Luke 13:33).

Threats and Rising Tensions: Russia’s Military Options against US

Threats and Rising Tensions: Russia’s Military Options against a US Attack on Syria
The tensions between Russia and the USA have reached an unprecedented level. I fully agree with the participants of this CrossTalk show – the situation is even worse and more dangerous than during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Both sides are now going to the so-called “Plan B”which, simply put, stand for, at best, no negotiations and, at worst, a war between Russia and the USA.
Nuclear flag US Russia War - http://www.alamongordo.com

The key thing to understand in the Russian stance in this, an other, recent conflicts with the USA is that Russia is still much weaker than the USA and that she therefore does not want war. That does not, however, mean that she is not actively preparing for war. In fact, she very much and actively does. All this means is that should a conflict occur, Russia you try, as best can be, to keep it as limited as possible.

In theory, these are, very roughly, the possible levels of confrontation:

  1. A military standoff à la Berlin in 1961. One could argue that this is what is already taking place right now, albeit in a more long-distance and less visible way.
  2. A single military incident, such as what happened recently when Turkey shot down a Russian SU-24 and Russia chose not to retaliate.
  3. A series of localized clashes similar to what is currently happening between India and Pakistan.
  4. A conflict limited to the Syrian theater of war (say like the war between the UK and Argentina over the Malvinas Islands).
  5. A regional or global military confrontation between the USA and Russia.
  6. A full scale thermonuclear war between the USA and Russia

During my years as a student of military strategy I have participated in many exercises on escalation and de-escalation and I can attest that while it is very easy to come up with escalatory scenarios, I have yet to see a credible scenario for de-escalation. What is possible, however, is the so-called “horizontal escalation” or “asymmetrical escalation” in which one side choses not to up the ante or directly escalate, but instead choses a different target for retaliation, not necessarily a more valuable one, just a different one on the same level of conceptual importance (in the USA Joshua M. Epsteinand Spencer D. Bakich did most of the groundbreaking work on this topic).

The main reason why we can expect the Kremlin to try to find asymmetrical options to respond to a US attack is that in the Syrian context Russia is hopelessly outgunned by the US/NATO, at least in quantitative terms. The logical solutions for the Russians is to use their qualitative advantage or to seek “horizontal targets” as possible retaliatory options. This week, something very interesting and highly uncharacteristic happened: Major General Igor Konashenkov, the Chief of the Directorate of Media service and Information of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, openly mentioned one such option. Here is what he said:

“As for Kirby’s threats about possible Russian aircraft losses and the sending of Russian servicemen back to Russia in body bags, I would say that we know exactly where and how many “unofficial specialists” operate in Syria and in the Aleppo province and we know that they are involved in the operational planning and that they supervise the operations of the militants. Of course, one can continue to insist that they are unsuccessfully involved in trying to separate the al-Nusra terrorists from the “opposition” forces. But if somebody tries to implement these threats, it is by no means certain that these militants will have to time to get the hell out of there.”

Nice, no? Konashenkov appears to be threatening the “militants” but he is sure to mention that there are plenty of “unofficial specialists” amongst these militants and that Russia knows exactly where they are and how many of them there are. Of course, officially, Obama has declared that there are a few hundred such US special advisors in Syria. A well-informed Russian source suggests that there are up to 5’000 foreign ‘advisors’ to the Takfiris including about 4’000 Americans. I suppose that the truth is somewhere between these two figures.

So the Russian threat is simple: you attack us and we will attack US forces in Syria. Of course, Russia will vehemently deny targeting US servicemen and insist that the strike was only against terrorists, but both sides understand what is happening here. Interestingly, just last week the Iranian Fars news agency reported that such a Russian attack had already happened:

30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia’s Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo:“The 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,” the Arabic-language service of Russia’s Sputniknews agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday. The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam’an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains. 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.”

Whether this really happened or whether the Russians are leaking such stories to indicate that this could happen, the fact remains that US forces in Syria could become an obvious target for Russian retaliation, whether by cruise missile, gravity bombs or direct action operation by Russian special forces. The US also has several covert military installations in Syria, including at least one airfield with V-22 Osprey multi-mission tiltrotor aircraft.

Another interesting recent development has been the Fox News report that Russians are deploying S-300V (aka “SA-23 Gladiator anti-missile and anti-aircraft system”) in Syria. Check out this excellent article for a detailed discussion of the capabilities of this missile system. I will summarize it by saying that the S-300V can engage ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, very low RCS (“stealth”) aircraft and AWACS aircraft. This is an Army/Army Corps -level air defense system, well capable of defending most of the Syrian airspace, but also reach well into Turkey, Cyprus, the eastern Mediterranean and Lebanon.

The powerful radars of this system could not only detect and engage US aircraft (including “stealth”) at a long distance, but they could also provide a tremendous help for the few Russian air superiority fighters by giving them a clear pictures of the skies and enemy aircraft by using encrypted datalinks. Finally, US air doctrine is extremely dependent on the use of AWACS aircraft to guide and support US fighters. The S-300V will forces US/NATO AWACS to operate at a most uncomfortable distance. Between the longer-range radars of the Russian Sukhois, the radars on the Russian cruisers off the Syrian coast, and the S-300 and S-300V radars on the ground, the Russians will have a much better situational awareness than their US counterparts.

It appears that the Russians are trying hard to compensate for their numerical inferiority by deploying high-end systems for which the US has no real equivalent or good counter-measures.

There are basically two options of deterrence: denial, when you prevent your enemy from hitting his targets and retaliation, when you make the costs of an enemy attack unacceptably high for him. The Russians appear to be pursuing both tracks at the same time. We can thus summarize the Russian approach as such

  1. Delay a confrontation as much as possible (buy time).
  2. Try to keep any confrontation at the lowest possible escalatory level.
  3. If possible, reply with asymmetrical/horizontal escalations.
  4. Rather then “prevail” against the US/NATO – make the costs of attack too high.
  5. Try to put pressure on US “allies” in order to create tensions inside the Empire.
  6. Try to paralyze the USA on a political level by making the political costs of an attack too high-end.
  7. Try to gradually create the conditions on the ground (Aleppo) to make a US attack futile

To those raised on Hollywood movies and who still watch TV, this kind of strategy will elicit only frustration and condemnation. There are millions of armchair strategists who are sure that they could do a much better job than Putin to counter the US Empire. These folks have now been telling us for *years* that Putin “sold out” the Syrians (and the Novorussians) and that the Russians ought to do X, Y and Z to defeat the AngloZionist Empire. The good news is that none of these armchair strategists sit in the Kremlin and that the Russians have stuck to their strategy over the past years, one day at a time, even when criticized by those who want quick and “easy” solutions. But the main good news is that the Russian strategy is working. Not only is the Nazi-occupied Ukraine quite literally falling apart, but the US has basically run out of options in Syria (see this excellent analysis by my friend Alexander Mercouris in the Duran).

The only remaining logical steps left for the USA in Syria is to accept Russia’s terms or leave. The problem is that I am not at all convinced that the Neocons, who run the White House, Congress and the US corporate media, are “rational” at all. This is why the Russians employed so many delaying tactics and why they have acted with such utmost caution: they are dealing with professional incompetent ideologues who simply do not play by the unwritten but clear rules of civilized international relations. This is what makes the current crisis so much worse than even the Cuban Missile Crisis: one superpower has clearly gone insane.

Are the Americans crazy enough to risk WWIII over Aleppo?

Maybe, maybe not. But what if we rephrase that question and ask

Are the Americans crazy enough to risk WWIII to maintain their status as the “world’s indispensable nation”, the “leader of the free world”, the “city on the hill” and all the rest of this imperialistic nonsense?

Here I would submit that yes, they potentially are.

After all, the Neocons are correct when they sense that if Russia gets away with openly defying and defeating the USA in Syria, nobody will take the AngloZionists very seriously any more.

How do you think the Neocons think when they see the President of the Philippines publicly calling Obama a “son of a whore” and then tells the EU to go and “f*ck itself”?

Of course, the Neocons can still find some solace in the abject subservience of the European political elites, but still – they know that he writing is on the wall and that their Empire is rapidly crumbling, not only in Syria, the Ukraine or Asia, but even inside the USA. The biggest danger here is that the Neocons might try to rally the nation around the flag, either by staging yet another false flag or by triggering a real international crisis.

At this point in time all we can do is wait and hope that there is enough resistance inside the US government to prevent a US attack on Syria before the next Administration comes in. And while I am no supporter of Trump, I would agree that Hillary and her evil cabal of russophobic Neocons is so bad that Trump does give me some hope, at least in comparison to Hillary.

So if Trump wins, then Russia’s strategy will be basically justified. Once Trump is on the White House, there is at least the possibility of a comprehensive redefinition of US-Russian relations which would, of course, begin with a de-escalation in Syria: while Obama/Hillary categorically refuse to get rid of Daesh (by that I mean al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, and all their various denominations), Trump appears to be determined to seriously fight them, even if that means that Assad stays in power. There is most definitely a basis for dialog here. If Hillary comes in, then the Russians will have to make an absolutely crucial call: how important is Syria in the context of their goal to re-sovereignize Russia and to bring down the AngloZionist Empire? Another way of formulating the same question is “would Russia prefer a confrontation with the Empire in Syria or in the Ukraine?”.

One way to gauge the mood in Russia is to look at the language of a recent law proposed by President Putin and adopted by the Duma which dealt with the issue of the Russia-US Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement (PMDA) which, yet again, saw the US yet again fail to deliver on their obligations and which Russia has now suspended. What is interesting, is the language chosen by the Russians to list the conditions under which they would resume their participation in this agreement and, basically, agree to resume any kind of arms negotiations:

  1. A reduction of military infrastructure and the number of the US troops stationed on the territory of NATO member states that joined the alliance after September 1, 2000, to the levels at which they were when the original agreement first entered into force.
  2. The abandonment of the hostile policy of the US towards Russia, which should be carried out with the abolition of the Magnitsky Act of 2012 and the conditions of the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014, which were directed against Russia.
  3. The abolition of all sanctions imposed by the US on certain subjects of the Russian Federation, Russian individuals and legal entities.
  4. The compensation for all the damages suffered by Russia as a result of the imposition of sanctions.
  5. The US is also required to submit a clear plan for irreversible plutonium disposition covered by the PMDA.

Now the Russians are not delusional. They know full well that the USA will never accept such terms. So what is this really all about? It is a diplomatic but unambiguous way to tell the USA the exact same thing which Philippine President Duterte (and Victoria Nuland) told the EU.

The Americans better start paying attention.

August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse of the United States !

August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse of the United States !

My recent study regarding the omens that solar eclipses bring as judgment upon gentile nations has brought me to the conclusion that this solar eclipse will be a warning of impending natural catastrophe, and also will involve the warning of a war that the United States and Israel will be entangled in.

2017 Eclipse United States - http://www.alamongordo.com

As with all solar eclipses, this one is HUGE in it’s timing, total coverage, and exclusivity with the United States. It’s been an entire generation ago when a eclipse of this magnitude covered the United States.

In 1917, during a jubilee year, the nation of Israel called Palestine was conquered and removed from the Turks of the Ottoman Empire. It was at this time that the “official” generation that Jesus speaks of in Matthew 24 begins…”this generation shall not pass away until ALL these things shall come to pass.”

The longest time period for a generation in scripture is 100 years. This added to 1917, is 2017.

War was being waged at the time during the Ottoman Empires control of Palestine, and I believe that this scenario will be happening again at the end of this generation. In fact, there has never been a more favorable time frame of seeing bible prophecy fulfilled than in this time frame and our generation.

The date of this published article being March 19th, 2016, I truly believe that we will see an escalated amount of war take place in the middle east. I also see the favorable potential of Turkey leading a coalition of middle eastern countries to war with Israel, along with countries from the EU. This will all come about during a time when “Peace and Security” is being proclaimed.

With recent headlines proclaiming Turkey is now a member of the EU, we see a revived Roman Empire beginning to take shape. We see the spoil of the booty being announced with Israel’s Natural Gas and Oil finds in the Mediterranean Sea, and the Golan Heights.

We see Damascus on the verge of complete destruction, and I also believe that Turkey will lead the way to conclude the war in Syria and remove Damascus as Isaiah 17 prophesied. The recent bombings and terrorist attacks in Turkey will have Syrian ties, and bring the leader of Turkey into the arena to finish off what Russia left behind.

Extremist groups based in Syria including ANF (Al Nusra Front) and Daesh have the capacity to carry out attacks in neighbouring countries, including Turkey. Media reports suggest that terrorists could target areas throughout Turkey, including Ankara, Istanbul and areas close to the Syrian border.

Daesh has targeted border crossings and nearby locations on the Syrian side of the border. The 20 July attack in Suruc, Sanlurfa province, is believed to have been carried out by individuals associated with Daesh. Daesh is also believed to have been responsible for the 10 October 2015 suicide bombings in Ankara, which killed over 100 people. The Turkish government have said that Daesh was responsible for the 12 January 2016 attack in Istanbul in which 10 foreign tourists were killed.

Turkey shares a long border with Syria. Thousands of foreign nationals, including some British nationals, have used Turkey as a transit route for joining terrorist groups including ANF and Daesh in Syria.

Recently, these terror attacks have occurred in Turkey with direct ties from Syria:

On 13 March 2016 a bombing in central Ankara killed more than 30 people.

There was an explosion near a military base in central Ankara on 17 February 2016. The Turkish authorities have confirmed that 28 people were killed and 61 injured.

There was a mortar attack on Sabiha Gokcen airport in Istanbul while the airport was closed for the night on 23 December 2015.

There were 2 explosions near the main Ankara train station in the Ulus area on 10 October 2015. At least 100 people were killed and more than 180 injured.

On 19 August 2015 there was an incident involving gunfire and a sound grenade in an attack on Turkish national police guards stationed outside Dolmabahçe Palace in Istanbul. On 10 August, 2 people opened fire outside the US Consulate-General in Istanbul.

Turkey therefore has numerous grievances with Syria, and would want to also remove Assad from power. Because Turkey is a NATO country, the United States would also be required to defend her.

Then to summarize thus far, I believe that this solar eclipse has significant implications to either a war starting shortly after the eclipse, or shortly before. Because of the exclusivity of America being under this eclipse, I also believe that it may be at this time that the Great Tribulation is ushered in.

We have Revelation Chapter 12 being fulfilled on September 23rd, 2017 as the stars spoken of in that chapter align for the first time in human history.

On March 21, 2016 we have 2 amber green comets appearing in our solar system and visible from earth. According to traditional oral teachings of Judaism, Noah saw a comet as a sign that God was going to destroy the earth with a flood.

Comets, when seen here on earth by the naked eye, can then indicate a judgement about to be placed upon the world by God.

I truly believe that with the path of this solar eclipse, the biblical and astrological timing of this event, and with the ever increasing chance of Israel being divided by the veto vote of Barrack Obama and the United States, that our fate is set and a warning is being given. This “fate” is non reversible. It has been prophesied to happen, and the pathway taken by leaders is assuring me that we have need to be very cautious and prepared for the days ahead.

According to other sources that we have contacted, some believe that a catastrophic earthquake will occur on the west coast particularly in the state of Oregon with the Pacific North West Subduction Plates, paralyzing the power grid and causing a tsunami along the coast of Washington State, Oregon, and Northern California. Included with the path of the solar eclipse is a direct overhead path of Yellowstone National Park. I don’t have to explain the implications of that one. As the eclipse travels across the United States from Wyoming, we have a direct crossing over the New Madrid Fault.

Three areas of grave concern, and three areas that should judgment befall this great land of ours, could totally collapse this country with untold numbers of lives lost. Could you imagine, a 10.0 earthquake on the west coast, then just a few minutes later, Yellowstone blowing it’s top, and then the final blow would be the New Madrid fault line triggering another 9.0 earthquake.

The devastation would be indescribable. But to make matters worse, it could be at this time, when we are at our weakest with infrastructure, economy, and society where chaos would be the new normal, our country would be attacked by enemies whom God would send to bring final judgment upon our land, for our involvement in dividing the land of Israel.

Read what my brother in Christ Artikelen has to say regarding this subject matter of 2017:

“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, [nor the Son is not in the original Greek], but the Father alone. For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.”

Do you see it?

Notice what the Lord Jesus says; when He returns to earth it will be JUST LIKE the days of Noah and then He describes what those days were like – “They were eating and drinking, and marrying and giving in marriage…,” but that is not all that encompasses the days of Noah. In the context of Matthew 24, verses 36 and 37 help identify the duration of the end [time-last] generation – the one that will experience the tribulation of the last three weeks and the return of the Lord Jesus.

In order to better understand what the Lord Jesus meant, we should read the Genesis account of the flood, particularly the days prior and what God said about it. Remember we are interested in knowing what the Lord Jesus meant when He said, “The last generation on earth will be JUST LIKE the days of Noah.”

In Genesis 6, God told Noah something very interesting when He said, “My Spririt shall not always strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be 120 years.”

What did God mean when He said, “Man’s days shall be 120 years?” Commentaries vary of the meaning on that phase. Some say it means that Noah preached for 120 years before the flood judgement came upon the earth. Some say it means that man’s lifespan is 120 years. Probably the first interpretation is the correct one because we know from Psalm 90 that man’s natural lifespan is seventy years or if by strength eighty.

In God’s eyes, man lives out a complete generation in seventy years. However, we know today that some people live beyond seventy years, but very few live to one hundred, and hardly anyone lives to be a hundred and twenty. Therefore, in the context of Genesis 6, I believe God was telling Noah that the last generation from Adam to Noah (the 10th generation from Adam) to the very day that the flood judgement fell upon the earth was exactly 120 years – no longer and no shorter” (See: Genesis 7:11-13).

Since we are to interpret the chapters and books of the Bible in the context of the whole Bible, then when the Lord Jesus said the generation of the Fig Tree would be JUST LIKE the days of Noah, I believe He was telling us that the end generation like Noah’s day would for a period of 120 years (There is evidence that it may be shorten by a few months, possible 7 months and 10 days – see Matthew 24:22 and Daniel 8:13-14).

In my previous revelation of the end generation, I assumed it began in 1917 with the Balfour Declaration, but the Holy Spirit gave me understanding that it actually began in 1897, the year of the FIRST ZIONIST CONGRESS HELD IN BASIL SWITZERLAND BY THEODOR HERTZL, and the first official act to prepare the way for the Jews to return to their homeland. Thus we see once again the “The Law of First Things” in operation. This was the first budding of the Fig Tree, not 1917, which was the second budding.

Now let’s apply the 120-Year Generation to the same scenario as we did for the other times, and when we do, we have a fifth evidence for the end generation ending in 2017-18:

1897 + 40 year generation = 1937. This scenario does not work because the time has passed for the final three weeks of 3 x 7 years of Tribulation and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

1897 + 50 year generation = 1947. This scenario does not work for the same reason as the 40-year generation.

1897 + 70 year generation = 1967. This scenario does not work for the same reason as the 40 and 50 year generation. However, it is interesting that in 1967 Jerusalem came back under Jewish control for the first time since the Babylonian captivity. The number 70 is definitely connected to the city of Jerusalem according  to Daniel 9:24-27.

1897 + 100 year generation = 1997. This scenario does not work for the same reason as the 40, 50, and 70 generation.

1897 + 120 year generation = 2017 0r 2018

(The Hebrew Civil Year begins in September and the Sacred Year begins in March. Therefore, the biblical numbers having to do with a complete generation pertaining to testing, release or deliverance, captivity and judgement.

1977-78 (The Year Israel reached maturity) + 40 years [testing]=2017/18.

1967 (The year Jerusalem was retaken by Israel) + 50 years [jubilee/deliverance] = 2017.

1947/8 (The year Israel was reborn as a nation) + 70 years [captivity prophecy fulfilled] = 2017/8.

1917 (the year the Balfour Declaration was issued) + 100 years [captivity] = 2017.

1897 (The year of the first Zionist Congress) + 120 years [judgement] = 2017.

Should the Lord tarry, and the Rapture has not yet occurred, we as Christians need to be prepared for such a calamity, for we know that persecution, with financial and governmental consequences would be imposed on all Americans, and especially Christians. Is this going to happen? The possibilities outweigh the odds of it not happening.

It’s not a matter of if..but when..and 2017 is shaping up to be a year of biblical proportions….are you ready? Are you a born again holy ghost filled bible believing Christian?

If your not, you’d better get that way in a hurry.

Obama Requests Military Support for War Against Russia !

According to an April 23rd article carried by Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Economic News), U.S. President Barack Obama is “demanding the active deployment of the Bundeswehr [Germany’s armed forces, including their Army, Navy, and Air Force] to NATO’s eastern borders” at Poland and the Baltic republics, to join the quadrupling of America’s forces there, on and near the borders of Russia. This is an extreme violation of what Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to when he ended the Soviet Union and its NATO-mirror organization the Warsaw Pact, but it’s actually culminating a process that began shortly after he agreed to America’s terms, which included that NATO “not move one inch to the east.”

Furthermore, DWN reports that on April 25th, the U.S. President will hold a summit meeting in Hannover, Germany with the leaders of Germany (Angela Merkel), Italy (Matteo Renzi), France (Francois Hollande), and Britain (David Cameron). The presumed objective of this meeting is to agree to establish in the NATO countries bordering on Russia a military force of these five countries, a force threatening Russia with an invasion, if or when NATO subsequently decides that the ‘threat from Russia’ be ‘responded to’ militarily.

NATO’s encirclement of Russia with forces hostile to it is supposedly defensive — not an offensive operation — against Russia and is presented as such by our media.   During the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis,  J. F. Kennedy didn’t consider Nikita Khrushchev’s plan to base nuclear missiles in Cuba to be ‘defensive’ on the USSR’s part — and neither does Russia’s President Vladimir Putin consider America’s far bigger operation of surrounding Russia with such weapons to be ‘defensive’.  The U.S. government, and NATO, act as if Russia is threatening them rather than them threatening and encircling Russia — and their news media transmit this lie as if it were a truth and one worthy of being taken seriously.  In actual fact, NATO has already expanded right up to Russia’s western borders.

Obama is thus now adding to the economic sanctions against Russia that he had imposed because of Russia’s alleged ‘seizure’ of Crimea from Ukraine after the US and EU engineered coup overthrew Russia’s ally Viktor Yanukovych who had led Ukraine until the coup in February 2014.

Even though Western-sponsored polls in Crimea, both before and after the coup, had shown higher than 90% support by Crimeans for rejoining with Russia, right after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia, Obama slapped sanctions against Russia. Nuclear weapons were prepared, both on the U.S.-EU side and on the Russian side, for a possible nuclear war.

This is no mere restoration of the Cold War (which was supposedly based on the capitalist-communist ideological disagreement); it’s getting forces into position for a possible invasion of Russia, pure-and-simple — raw conquest — though no major news-media in the West are reporting it as being such.

The current preparation doesn’t necessarily mean a nuclear war will result from them. Russia might accept whatever the demands ‘the West’ makes of it and thus lose its  sovereignty.  Alternatively, if Russia stands-its-ground and refuses to yield up its national sovereignty,‘the West’ (the U.S.leadership, and the leaderships in its allied countries) could cease with its evermore-ominous threats and simply withdraw from Russia’s borders.

Basically, by 2013 the U.S. leadership had decided to take over Ukraine and refused to acknowledge the rights of the Crimean people to reject the new dispensation in Kiev and decide on its own future — and, by late February 2014, Russia’s leadership decided toprotect them against the type of invasion that subsequently occurred in Ukraine’s former Donbass region, where the opposition to Obama’s coup was even more intense.

The West keeps asserting that Russia is somehow in the wrong here.  However, since even the head of Stratfor has called what Obama did in Ukraine “the most blatant coup in history”, and since the fact that it was a U.S. coup has been documented extensively on cellphone and other videos, and in the most thorough academic investigation that has been performed of the matter — and was even acknowledged by Ukraine’s Petro Poroshenko, a participant in the coup, to have been a coup — and since evidence survives on the Internet of the U.S. Embassy’s preparations as early as 1 March 2013 for the February 2014 coup; and since even the U.S. government’s hired polls showed that Crimeans rejected overwhelmingly the U.S. coup and supported rejoining Russia; the question still needs to be answered: What is the basis of the West’s aggressive actions threatening Russia’s national security other than its own imperialist ambitions towards Russia camouflaged with the lies about an aggressive Russia and an aggressive President Putin the Western mass media have been bombarding the public with?  And, that’s a very worrisome basis — worrisome regarding, essentially, a type of dictatorshipin the West, rather than any dictatorship outside it.   The aggression and the threat here seem clearly to be coming from the West, against the East.

Back in January, Russian President Vladimir Putin had once again called out American President Barack Obama on Obama’s big lie that America’s “ABM” weapons to disable in-flight nuclear missiles were being installed in Europe in order to protect Europe against Iranian nuclear missiles.  Now, however, while the U.S. acknowledges that Iran doesn’t have, and won’t have, any nuclear missiles, Obama is stepping up (instead of ending) those same ABM installations in Europe, close to Russia’s borders.  The only real reason they have been installed, as Putin argues, is in order to enable a sudden nuclear attack against Russia capable of disabling Russia’s retaliatory capacity in a matter of minutes.

The only rational response by the Western public to what Obama and his foreign allies are doing is to recognize what is actually happening and to take action against their own leaders, before this increasingly high-stakes confrontation becomes terminal.  In this instance, the people of the countries that comprise the political West need to defend themselves against their own national leaders. This is a situation that is frequently encountered in dictatorships.

The key questions are not being asked in the Western press, however; they are being ignored by it.  Unless these questions are publicly dealt with — and soon — the answer to them all could well be terminal for millions of civilians in Europe and elsewhere.
The closer things get to a nuclear war, the more difficult it is for either side to back down from it — and this is especially the case with the aggressor, most especially when it falsely claims that it is being aggressed-against.

This is the reason why the lies peddled by the political leadership of the West urgently need to be exposed.

The Emergence of Haris-Al-Harrath and Mansur

Hazrat Ali reported that the Prophet Peace and blessings be upon him said, ”There will be a man from Transoxania who will be called Harith-Harrath and a man called Mansur will be at his vanguard.

He will give abode to the family of Mohammad (referring to Imam Mahdi) just as the Quraish gave abode to the Prophet Peace and blessings be upon him (Mishkat)

Emergence of The Suffyani

The emergence of the suffyani (a descendant of Abu Sufyan) will emerge before Imam Mahdi from the depths of Damascus.

According to some weak narration his name will be Urwa bin Muhammed and his Kuniya ‘Abu-Utba’. The Ahadith regarding the Suffyani specify that he is a tyrant who will spread corruption and mischief on the earth before Imam Mahdi. He will be such a tyrant that he will kill the children and rip open the bellies of women. When he hears about the Mahdi, he will send an army to seize and kill him. However the Earth will swallow this army before it even reaches Imam Mahdi.

Abu Huraira (R.A.) has narrated that the Prophet Peace and blessings be upon him said, ”A man will emerge from the depth of Damascus. He will be called Suffyani. Most of those who follow him will be from the tribe of Kalb.

He will kill by ripping the stomachs of women and even kill the children. A man from my family will appear in Haram, the news of his advent will reach the Suffyani and he will send forth one of his armies. He (referring to Imam Mahdi) will defeat them.

They will then travel with whoever remains until they come to a desert and they will be swallowed . None will be saved except the one who had informed the others about them. ” (Mustadarak)
