With these missiles, Iran could target regional US bases. The military display was also designed to demonstrate Iran’s ability to close of the Strait of Hormuz, through which 20 percent of the world’s oil passes.
As speculation intensifies that the US and Israel are conducting a covert war against Iran, and the West is threatening to impose further sanctions, the Islamic Republic has said it is enhancing its defenses. (Jan.2,2012).
In December there were oil problems. OPEC was scheduled to meet December 14th and prior to this meeting there was already an apparent “build-up” of American forces in the Straight of Hormuz. Why, because the US was anticipating a new round of sanctions on Iran. The US was also aware that Iran was pushing to get OPEC to take advantage of Libya’s return to the oil market following its share of problems (Revolution concocted by CIA, NATO, et.al). During the “Revolution” Saudi Arabia increased its output and stood to make some hefty fiat over the situation. Now that Iran is asking OPEC to include Libyan sweet crude once again, guess who stands to loose fiat? Yes, American interest, Saudi Arabia. Iraq also, a third largest producer of oil also upped their oil output during the Libyan debacle. Of course we know that Iraq is totally independent and is no way led by any other governments outside their own democratically “elected” officials. o_O (Information source Bloomberg)
With Libya now “Free” and Iraq now “Stable” it appears that the growing consensus is that to keep the American public distracted with our impending mega-economic collapse is another war. War is Peace. War is profitable. There has been a long ongoing complex series of foundation laying to justify going to war with Iran. Some saw Iraq as an “opportunity” to proxy war with Iran, which it was as I was told by Iraqi’s who left Iraq early and confirmed this was going on. The idea of “Christian America” fighting “Evil Muslim Iran” has been played out across “Evangelical” Churches for years. YEARS. I can recall a silly book written by John Hagee in which he declared Iran would be Nuclear Weapon ready within months to 3 years of the publication of his book! (Jerusalem Countdown 1, later he had to amend some of his false prophesies in Jerusalem Countdown 2; I’m waiting for it to show up at the Dollar Tree-not). Let’s not forget all the Christian Apologetics, Prophesy conferences, Joel Rosenberg, and everyone else looking to sell a book, DVD, or fill a conference room has been telling Christians that Iran will nuke Israel because of Ezekiel 38 & 39!! Is that what the scripture really says? Can you please review it: Ezekiel 38 & 39. Spend some time thinking about how many times Christian ministries throw in the impending doom of Iran and their Nuclear arsenal. And if the Bible is correct that Gog will attack Israel, is it not also true that GOD will protect the land of Israel?
18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face.
19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD. ~Ezekiel 38:18-23
Who protects Israel in the event of Ezekiel 38?
1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
2And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:
3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.
4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.
8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken. ~ Ezekiel 39:1-8
Odd, I didn’t see the United States in that passage, or NATO, or a conglomerate of countries having to come to the aid of Israel. I’m not against supporting Israel. I’m against a preemptive attack on Iran that will cause them to do something to the US or our servicemen and women in the Straight of Hormuz. Maybe the evil corrupt groups within the US that are running things want us to do such a preemptive strike to cause the ensuing fallout? What? Yeah, maybe the real evil ones want to unleash a war on Christians and the only way to do it is to light the fuse in the direction of Muslim retaliation against a primed and angry Christian “Army” who have been long told there’s a coming war with Iran. Maybe, or I just have had too much coffee this morning.
