Global SITREP B9-16: The Things Which "Must Take Place"


30 April 2016: I think most folks reading this blog realize that world events are unmistakably evidencing a quickening trend towards a catastrophic global war. As mentioned in the first paragraph of the previous SITREP, second only to the sign of man-made deception and false messiahs, our hearing of wars and rumors of wars are a key 'end times' sign. As Jesus told us , "See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

The last part of that sentence is critical to understanding our Lord's prophecy. Even though the wars and rumors of wars must come to pass, the end of this age is not yet. That occurs within a specified period of 7-years in the near future. 

Look around the world and there is not a place on the planet where a war or a rumor of war is not a routine fact of life that people living in that location have to deal with. And there are many types of wars and rumors of wars thereof.

For example, the most commonly overlooked type of war is civil war. There are a plethora of civil wars going on in many countries. Syria is a key ongoing Islamic civil war that has escalated through internationalization (Shi'a Iran, Hezbollah and Sunni jihadists from all over the planet) and foreign intervention (Russia) to one in which great powers risk direct conflict with each other. As mentioned in many SITREPs, this war is a specific and major 'end times' Bible prophecy from both Isaiah and Jeremiah. These prophecies speak to a minds-eye image where one of the oldest cities on this Earth is to be annihilated virtually overnight as the image above illustrates.  

Civil wars and the societal destabilization began to rage across the Middle East following U.S. President Barack Obama's infamous Cairo (Egypt) University speech in June of 2009. He bears full responsibility for the disaster that media have grossly and falsely labeled as the "Islamic Spring." That speech, entitled "A New Beginning" destabilized the entire Sunni Islamic world. It resulted in an open revolt in Egypt - a continuing revolt which evokes the prophecy of Isaiah 19 entering a process of fulfillment before our eyes. 

And just to the west of Egypt, the Obama Administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton specifically, deliberately instigated an Islamist revolt against Muammar al-Qaddafi which quickly morphed into a brutal all-consuming civil war, NATO intervention, the completely avoidable disaster known simply as 'Benghazi' and a continuing catastrophe which begs even greater Western military intervention. NATO special forces are operating as you read this in Libya, with a greater invasion and overthrow predicted for the future 70th Week according to Daniel 11:42. 

The Horn of Africa has been a basket case of war since the early 1990s. Sudan (Kuwsh) and Somalia are virtually apocalyptic after decades of Islamist-inspired jihad. This has resulted in the entirety of the former French colony (French Somaliland) of Djibouti, which straddles the key maritime choke-point Strait of Bab-al-Mandeb, being rapidly transformed into an armed camp with NATO and now China building massive bases there. On the other side of the Bab-al-Mandeb is Yemen and its fully internationalized civil war.

There are rumors of civil war erupting in Venezuela as that socialist regime crumbles, as well as in other leftist South American nations, such as Brazil and Argentina. The electorate in Bolivia and Ecuador appear to have recently granted their nations a reprieve from similar strife. Communist Cuba remains a basket case and ever ripening for a counter-revolution.

In Europe there is also ample evidence of civil revolt brewing, exacerbated by the flood of refugees from the Middle East and North Africa. Once open borders of adjoining nations within the EU have been closed. It is an open fact that the increasingly militarized police as well as the military special forces in Europe are in active preparation for strife, riots and even civil war. The rapidly growing anti-Islamist forces in Europe have the potential to cause wholesale regime change in several EU nations. Within the EU, all of these nations are bound to come to each others defense. This means that the paramilitary and even active duty military forces may well be called across national borders. We can also anticipate the very rapid rise of a pan-EU army; Germany and The Netherlands have just formed the core of such a European Army by joining their national armies together. This is not something that will occur over years, but months.

And here in the USA, has there been a time time since our own Civil War of the 1860s where open revolt against the federal government, the 'Establishment  of Washington, D.C. was more pronounced than it is today?  We have even seen militia 'volunteers' moving across state-lines to assist other militia organizations in standoffs against federal authorities on national news broadcasts. Not to mention the abject violence being executed recently and promised in the future around the country by radical leftists within the two primary candidacies of the Democrat Party. (By the way, newscasts these days are more akin to political narratives than they are to objective news reporting, but that's another story for another time.)

A common paraphrase from Jesus' Olivet Discourse holds that, "as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man."  I also look at history, and believe the old adage is true that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.  

When Christ walked this earth nearly 1900 years ago what was occurring among the world powers in the generation of that era? Let's take a brief glimpse.

In China there was a coup d'etat which led to a rebel army invading, sacking and burning the capital city to the ground. Millions of Chinese die in the ensuing civil war. In Japan, the Japanese are conquering the native Ainu peoples of that island chain. We know this today as 'ethnic cleansing.' In Rome there is civil war, repeatedly, with emperors and wanna-be emperors pitting Rome's legions against each other in vying for control of the empire. All-powerful emperors rule as absolute dictators, and they ignore a timid Senate both unwilling and unable to exert its power to offset such dictatorship.

Roman Emperor Nero burns the largely wooden city of Rome and the early Christians, thinking the 'end of days' has arrived, dance in jubilation. These Christians are blamed by the Roman powers that be for setting the fire and persecution, imprisonment, and public slaughter ensue on a massive scale all across the Empire. Thereafter, Nero commits suicide as a military coup d'etat closes in on him, and a military dictatorship seizes control of the Roman Empire. The first Roman General-Emperor, Galba, is assassinated by a Roman legionnaire after open revolt within the military against his rule begins in Germania. The year is 69 AD, and Vespasian, general of the Roman legions for the first two years in subduing a revolt of the Jews in Judea, becomes the new Emperor of Rome. His son, Titus Vespasian, takes command of the legions in Judea and over the next five years besieges Jerusalem, ultimately destroying the city and its Temple. 

The end of the 7-year long war (66-73 AD) against the Jews in Judea occurs in 73 AD with the capture of Masada, thereby bringing to fulfillment the first two-thirds of the prophecy of the angel Gabriel found in Daniel 9:24 through 26a. Daniel 9:26b and 27 are set in the immediate future. So, in your notice, how much do the events in history on this earth described above appear so very similar to the events occurring right now. Again, "for all these things must come to pass but the end is not yet."  

And we are hurtling towards the fulfillment of Gabriel's God-breathed prophecy, which includes the final "week' of 7 years, the 70th Week.

"The end of it shall be with a flood,
And till the end of the war desolations are determined.
Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week;
But in the middle of the week
He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering.
And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate,
Even until the consummation, which is determined,
Is poured out on the desolate."

History doesn't really repeat itself, human beings who are devoid of the Holy Spirit guiding their lives just keep making the same dumb mistakes because it is in their fallen nature to do so.  It's all just so predictable, isn't it.

Global SITREP B8-16: The 12-year Run Up to the Seventh Bowl

Earthquakes since 1899 by magnitude
29 April 2016:  If you would like to follow global and even local seismic events in near real-time, simply click on, then add this linked web page URL into your browser's favorites list.  For example, I have this page URL saved in my favorites folder named "MT24 Signs." Here's the webpage: Seismic Monitor.  

17 April 2016: In His discourse on the Mount of Olives, the Lord Jesus Christ spoke of five primary signs for us to watch for as indications of His soon coming and the end of the current age of mankind. Jesus warned against the man-made deception ("let no man deceive you") of false messiahs; wars and rumors of wars, famines, biological plagues and earthquakes all occurring in various places. All of these signs (occurring together or concurrently), He said, are the beginning of [Greek: ┼Źdin thanatos] dire calamities, the beginning of sorrows, which occur as the travail of a woman in the throes of childbirth. This specific Greek phrase ┼Źdin thanatos is repeated with what I believe is a little more clarity in Acts 2:24 where it is translated as "the pains of death."

In this SITREP the focus will be on the fifth of the signs, earthquakes, because the greatest earthquake in the history of this planet is not that far away.

This very morning an earthquake magnitude 7.8 struck the nation of Ecuador in South America. A day earlier a quake magnitude 7.0 struck southern Japan in the same province where a day earlier a magnitude 6.7 quake occurred. In all, there have been a series of 9 earthquakes in this same province this week.  In total around the world there have been 16 quakes of magnitude 6.5 to 7.9 since January 3, 2016. A significant fact is that 8 of these 16 quakes have occurred in the first two weeks of April 2016. Another significant item to highlight is that the calculated seismic risk for earthquakes to occur in these particular regions had been rated as low to very low (18% to 4% chance). 

The vast majority of these quakes are occurring all along the Pacific Rim. Individual quakes are highlighted by minuscule electric green dots in the image above illustrating global geologic activity over the past 115 years. 115 years of Jesus' prophecy coming to fulfillment in one snap-shot illustration. The vast major of those dots have been added to the map within the past 65 years.

Some more facts. In the past ten years alone there have been 408 earthquakes of magnitude 6.5 to 9.0 to occur. In 2015 there were 61 quakes within this magnitude range; 49 in 2014; 57 in 2013; 42 in 2012 and 52 in 2011. 2011 is the year which saw a rather dramatic increase in earthquakes and which as you can see by these numbers has remained constant, plus or minus 10 quakes per year in the 6.5 to 9.0 range. 2016 is thus far on a pace to eclipse the 61 quakes of 2015.

All of this data is what has seismologists on high alert for major earthquakes to strike in Chile, Ecuador, Indonesia and Japan in the next 48 hours. The seismologists algorithm-based alert into the future falls exquisitely in line with Jesus' Olivet prophecy and the passage in Revelation 16:20 regarding the disappearance of entire islands (the Pacific Ocean especially!) and mountain ranges all over planet earth being flattened. I believe planet earth is in the 12-year run-up (or countdown if you prefer) to the literal fulfillment of Revelation 16:17-21.

99% of the seismologists algorithms forecast such tectonic devastation from 2016 through 2019, and in slightly longer range to 2028. However, the phrase "slightly longer range" is in reality from this moment only 12 years away, and anything can and most likely will happen between now and then. Put another way, 2028 is closer to the present world's future than 2003 is to its recent past.

There is no surer or explicit validation of Bible prophecy than its precise literal fulfillment before our eyes in this final generation.  Jesus said, "Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place." (Matthew 24:34)  Got Jesus in your heart?

Global SITREP B7-16: Blatant Russian and Chinese Aggression Continues; North Korea has Miniaturized Nuclear Warheads

Kim Jong-Un stands behind North Korea's miniaturized nuclear warhead
Update 21 April 2016: The image above is all over the internet. It shows North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un standing behind a North Korean miniaturized nuclear warhead. North Korea made the claim of successful miniaturization of a nuclear device a little over a month ago; this image at the minimum shows the world they at least have a viable design if not a bonafide warhead to put on top of a ballistic missile. 

The miniaturization of a nuclear warhead means that the possessor nation has successfully designed and manufactured a warhead which weighs less than 2200 pounds and has a diameter of 35 inches or less. The warhead imaged above reportedly weighs in at 660 pounds. North Korea is assessed to have manufactured between 8 and 20 of these warheads. 

Question: How easy would it be for North Korea to put a full-scale production prototype of this miniaturized nuclear warhead on an aircraft and covertly fly it to Iran as a "diplomatic pouch" for reverse engineering? Or better yet, how about the digitized machine production specifications loaded on a CD and sent that to Iran.  

Answer: Too easy. Entirely too easy. And probably already a matter of fact.

RC-135 'Combat Sent'
17 April 2016: The day before the original posting of this SITREP a second inherently dangerous incident occurred in northern Europe when a Russian Su-27 'Flanker' combat aircraft intercepted and performed a barrel roll maneuver over a United States Air Force RC-135U 'Combat Sent' (based on the Boeing 739) reconnaissance aircraft.  The RC-135U, assigned to the 55th Wing at Offutt AFB, Nebraska, was flying its mission in international airspace over the Baltic Sea when the incident occurred. A U.S. officer assigned to European Command (EUCOM) described the Russian pilot's maneuver as 'erratic and aggressive,' and a U.S. Navy Captain described it as 'unsafe and unprofessional.' 

The RC-135U Combat Sent is a strategic electronic collections platform whose data is sent directly to the POTUS, SECDEF, Pentagon JCS and European theater field commanders in real-time. There are only two RC-135U Combat Sent aircraft in service with the USAF. 

Russian Su-24M2 'Fencer-D' (video frame capture)

15 April 2016: The above image is a video frame capture of the split-second a Russian Su-24 'Fencer-D' strike aircraft was completing its high-speed strafing run of the USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) in international waters of the Baltic Sea on Tuesday, April 12, 2016. 

This image proves beyond any doubt that the subsequent official statements concerning this incident made by the Russian government in Moscow are all bald-faced lies. The Su-24 in this image is within 30 feet of DDG-75.  The aircraft and its crewmen should have been shot down according to United States Navy rules of engagement. The Russian aircraft was clearly in violation of the 1973 agreement between the U.S. and Russia strictly prohibiting this type of maneuver. 

Chinese PLA Cyber Warriors (Photo Credit: AP)
As the expanded title of this SITREP informs, the Chinese are executing assaults against the United States on a daily basis. So testified Vice Admiral (three stars) James D. Syring, commanding officer of the United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA), before the House subcommittee on strategic forces. VAdm. Syring testified that the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army cyber warrirors attacks on American computer networked are of an equivalent threat level as both the North Korean and Iranian ballistic missile programs. 

Quoting Admiral Syring, "I view the [Chinese PLA] cyber threat that I specifically face with MDA and the systems we are fielding on par with any ballistic missile threat that either Iran or North Korea possess...They [the Chinese PLA] are continuing to try and attack my government networks, every day, classified and unclassified." 

Admiral Syring also warned that our enemies risk considerable costs to be borne as a result of their cyberwarfare assaults against our critical Informational Technology (IT) base and classified and unclassified military networks such as those which serve as the backbone of our missile defense capabilities.

Global SITREP B1-16: The Approaching Storm Clouds



Update 19 April 2016 Within days of the original post below the government of the Persian Gulf island nation of Bahrain began to deport Lebanese citizens who were determined to have direct links to or were supporters of Lebanese Hezbollah. This action came following a Hezbollah terrorist attack in Bahrain which killed an on-duty policeman and injured several others in Karbabad, a suburb of the capital Manama.

Today the Bahrain News Agency (BNA) reports that the national parliament (Council of Representatives) fully supports all measures taken and yet to be taken by the Bahrain Defense Force to ensure the country's security and stability. 

Quoting the BNA report,  the Council of Representatives "stressed the need to take all measures so as to put an end to the designs of Iran and the terrorist Hezbollah militias against Bahrain, the GCC countries and the whole Arab region in general. The council called for unified GCC and Arab stances to foil all threats and challenges and wage the war on the terrorist acts fomented by Wilayat al-Faqih and the terrorist Hezbollah militia."

This statement is tantamount to the GCC State of Bahrain issuing a declaration of war between itself and the Wilayat al-Faqih (the Islamic Republic of Iran) and Lebanese Hezbollah.

In Bible prophecy, Bahrain is one of the Arabian peninsula nations identified by the prophet Ezekiel as 'Sheba, Dedan' in Ezekiel 38:13 as being allied with the western alliance of nations ('Tarshish, and all their young lions').

13 March 2016: In keeping with the Eschatology Today theme of an approaching flood of prophetic Biblical fulfillment prior to the 70th Week, and in the same context as the GLOBAL flood of Noah came from above as well as below the ground, the conditions in the world today continue to press forward towards that literal reality with ever increasing rapidity and intensity.

The Sunni-Shi'a war transitioned to the next level as seen on Friday, 11 March with the Arab League's decision to officially apply the epithet of "terrorist organization" to Hezbollah. No doubt this is an appellation tied directly to the constantly growing conflict between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and their allies in the various gulf emirates and states of the GCC, plus Egypt and Jordan. It may be nothing more than a matter of time until other Iranian military proxies are so designated.

An officially applied declaration of "terrorist" validates whatever subsequent military action the Sunni nations embark upon against Syria, Lebanon, Iraq or Iran itself as a legitimate course of action. This is a template for military action which has been used since 9/11 by the U.S. and its allies to justify military action in several countries from the Middle East to the Pacific Rim. Make no mistake - actions that will be taken are imminent. Related to this was the also recent Saudi decision to withdraw several millions of dollars of support it had annually provided to the government of Lebanon, thereby acknowledging that Lebanon was fully under the control of the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

What is also interesting in this is that Israeli-Arab groups dismissed the Arab League action as meaningless, thereby indicating a very real schism between Israeli-Arab Sunni's and their Arab League brethren. This reveals the precise level of allegiance Israeli-Arabs have towards Twelver Iran and the depth to which Twelver Iran has gained influence over Israeli-Arabs. This makes Israeli-Arabs a rather dangerous 5th column within Israel. For their part the Shi'a Twelver's responded with a declaration which precisely mirrors the Israeli-Arabs declaration on the irrelevance of the Arab League. This kind of rhetoric will certainly continue until bullets and missiles begin to fly.

Related to this are the twin Iranian launches of ballistic missiles four days ago (9 March). These are ballistic missiles specifically designed to strike Israel with nuclear warheads. Not unlike the bellicose statements of their North Korean allies this past week, this kind of kinetic action by Iran could be seen as a catalyst for potential pre-emptive strikes against Iran by Israel. The domestic political pressure upon PM Netanyahu for taking preemptive military action against Iran must be immense, yet his complaints to the inept and toothless U.N. amounts to nothing more effective than the exhalation of hot gas. 

Another flash point can be found in Israel's Sephardic Chief Rabbi, Yitzhak Yosef, declaring that it is a mitzvah (i.e. a commandment) for Israeli's to kill on sight any knife wielding Muslim. Rabbi Yosef also stated that if the the Muslim does not have a knife, then he should be imprisoned with no parole until messiah comes, and then he shall be killed. The progression towards open, unrestrained warfare (the flood) could not be any clearer.

Anti-American radical leftists and their allies in St. Louis, MO.
Addendum: It now appears obvious that the coming storm will also envelope the United States in a confrontation between the radical Left, emboldened by the current Obama Administration and the two socialists of the Democrat Party seeking to succeed him, and the conservative Right. Above is an image of the enemy forces taken last Friday as they were assembling in St. Louis, Missouri. Notice who the friends of these anti-American leftists are.

The Radical Leftist violence and blatant assault on God-given Constitutional rights seen in recent days in Dayton, Ohio and Chicago, Illinois has been primarily directed towards the Trump presidential campaign. This is just the beginning of what is coming, and will move to confront other GOP candidates should Trump not win the nomination. The George Soros-funded anti-American leftist groups (such as MoveOn.Org and BlackLivesMatter for example) are openly telling their followers to donate money, plan, prepare and be ready for more of the same in the weeks to come. 

"...against all enemies, foreign and domestic. So help me God."

Global SITREP B6-16: Knowledge is Power

Jordan Border Crossing: Jabhat al-Nusra (Al Qaeda) In Control
7 April 2016: Some time ago I gave the readers of Eschatology Today a warning regarding acceptance of news reporting. The warning to the reader was that during wartime the truth will often be hidden by a bodyguard of outright lies or various levels of disinformation. The war continues and so does my warning. We need to be careful no matter where the information we receive comes from.


Everything about this sentence is true except for the most important part - the identification of the terrorist group and flag in the image. As I privately informed the editors at DEBKAfile yesterday  afternoon (we are on the same side in this war, no?) that is NOT an ISIS terrorist waving the ISIS battle flag at an apparently abandoned Jordanian border crossing.  It is a Jabhat al-Nusra (JN) terrorist waving the Al-Qaeda-aligned Jabhat al-Nusra battle flag. 

There is no way on Earth that the astute and experienced editors at DEBKAfile made such a blatant error in the positive identification of an ISIS flag versus the Jabhat al-Nusra flag. It is something a 6-year old child with two minutes of instruction could correctly do with flash cards. 

So, the first question is: For what not-so-obvious political purpose or agenda would DEBKAfile deliberately publish a disinformational report for the whole world to see, and then create a narrative account of reactions to the image by the Israeli government and those of Jordan, the US, the Saudi and UAE military officers? Is the world to believe the military intelligence professionals working for these governments do not know the existent facts on the ground at the Jordanian border? Of course they do. So why the nonsense from DEBKAfile for John and Jane Q. Public to consume?

The second question is: If this photograph is accurate in its depiction, does it provide the first solid evidence that the forces of Islamic State and the jihadists of Al-Qaeda's brand have joined forces in the face of the ongoing Russian-Iranian-Hezbollah-Syrian military offensive, plus the U.S.led Coalition military operation

The third question is: If so, then why is this not the core subject of the DEBKAfile report? Why is it not the subject of Corporate News Media (in the U.S. that's ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, CNN and the lot) reporting? Buckle up, a completely unexpected Immelmann maneuver begins with the next sentence

DEBKAfile actually got the core issue correct. The Sunni jihadists of the self-declared Islamic State caliphate and the nebulous global jihadists under Al Qaeda's banner are not enemies - they're allies! They are allies in their primary jihad against the secular West, Christianity and Judaism, and secondarily against their enemies of the Russian-Syrian-Iranian axis. How do I know this? I read the stuff the corporate media have embargoed in their boardrooms because they are in agreement with the agenda being pursued by Western governments, led by our own.

Remember the good ol' days? The enemy was known and clearly identified. They were Communists who followed the rigid ideology of Communism. The US and our European and Pacific allies took this clear identification of the enemy and his ideology and crafted a warfighting doctrine with which to defeat the enemy. Ultimately the doctrine succeeded, at least with respect to the former-USSR. 

Now look at the enemy today. We know them as Islamists and their ideology is Islamism. And that's where the similarity ends because the US and our European and Pacific allies resolutely refuse to name Islamists as the enemy and Islamism as their ideology. From this point the failure escalates due to an abject refusal to use this knowledge to craft a warfighting doctrine with which to defeat this enemy. 

This is the reason why this war in many military and intelligence circles, which was fully engaged long before many of us realized that out enemy was at war with us, is known as "The Long War." Without the requisite definition of an enemy and his ideology upon which a warfighting doctrine must be crafted this war will be endless. A perpetual and perfectly good global crisis which those wielding power have no intention of allowing to go to waste.

Remember the "Global War on Terrorism"?  My how the political establishment wailed when this nomenclature was done away with, never mind the fact that no nation has ever successfully waged war against a tactic. Terrorism is not an enemy, it is a tactic used by the enemy. And the recent media headlines across Europe and the US were absolutely predictable: "Terror Attacks San Bernardino" and "Terror Attacks Paris" and "Terror Attacks Brussels."  Terror did not attack anyone or any city. Islamists executing their ideological Islamism attacked the US and French Marines in Beirut in 1983, and every cold-blooded Islamic assault since then to include San Bernardino, Paris, Brussels, Madrid, London, New York City, Washington, D.C. and Shanksville, PA, just to name a handful.

Why isn't this the real news then? Why propagate falsehood for the public to consume. You see where I am coming from, and where I am going. People are being conditioned to believe the lie. Any lie.  Any lie the regime in power wants the public to believe will be accepted because the public has been pre-conditioned to believe it. Heaven help those who reject the lie, whatever it is. And it took me all of four days to attempt to make some kind coherent sense of this and express it here.

I'm not going to hold my breath on this, but there is just the slightest chance the Islamic State-Al Qaeda alliance might become public knowledge through the global corporate media. I hold out this slim chance because I have seen in the past day or so news from Arab-language media where some exceptionally brave Muslim journalists have actually called out Islam as being responsible for the unending wave of global terror. Muslims usually don't call out other Muslims or cite Islamism as the cause of cold-blooded carnage and live long to tell about it. Chances are they'll be assassinated or beheaded, or worse, but it is a faint glimmer of a chance that will likely evaporate with a new wave of jihadist assaults in Rome, London, New York or WhoKnowsWhere. 

Marana'tha Lord, Marana'tha!

Global SITREP B5-16: It's Worse Than You Think

NEW NORTH KOREAN KN-14 ICBM ON PARADE IN PYONGYANG
1 April 2016: Although I delayed posting this SITREP until this morning, this is not intended as anything like an 'April Fools' joke, even though some in Washington and elsewhere in the country might think we're all fools. Who knows, perhaps in light of Bible prophecy it could be said that we are literal pawns fully engaged in a fools errand given the entire gamut of recent events as the secular world lurches uncontrollably and a great speed down the road to Revelation.

Not quite one year ago Global SITREP C5-15 was posted (a good re-read folks), and it dealt with the same subject as this one - North Korea's incessant arming of itself with doomsday nuclear weaponry and the means of delivery of those weapons to targets from 'sea to shining sea.'  Not bad for a so-called pariah nation which is now telling its people (who have long been just shy of starvation) to prepare themselves for famine.  As if they need a hint about what is coming.

The image above I am informed is from October 2015. Consider this in light of what was posted in May 2015 in the aforementioned SITREP C5-15. There's no doubt that the photo intelligence analysts who studied this image came to their concluding assessment months ago: North Korea has a brand new long-range ICBM to go along with their also new KN-08 road-mobile ICBM and their KN-11 submarine-launched ICBM, upon which they can sit their newly tested, fully miniaturized thermonuclear warhead. 

These nuclear weapons delivery systems appear to be based upon existing Russian and Chinese rocket designs as well as AQ Khan designs and technology transfers. The big word for this kind of activity is proliferation of nuclear weapons technology. Obviously it is rampant.

As with the previous SITREP, this one also rides on the reporting provided by Bill Gertz as published yesterday by the Washington Free Beacon: "Pentagon Confirms New North Korean ICBM."  To that report I will add what the cited analyst does not say about North Korea's nuclear capability. While the KN-14 launched from a northern corner of North Korea could strike Chicago, a further development of this ICBM is not really necessary as the submarine-launched KN-11 when fired from a mid-Pacific Ocean location north of Hawai'i would have Washington, DC or new York City well with its targeting envelope. Additionally, any nation capable of putting a payload into orbit around the earth is capable of hitting any target on earth with a nuke, including a high-altitude EMP burst nuclear weapon.

As I have often made known, a North Korean nuke is an Iranian nuke, so what ever threat we now face from North Korean nuclear weapons, we also very probably face from Iran. In this Jeremiah 49:34 can not come to fulfillment soon enough in my estimation. The sooner the better. All of this development by North Korea (and Iran) has come during the Obama Administration. 

It can be said with great assurance that Obama's policies with respect to both of these countries, as well as their technological benefactors, has accelerated their nuclear weapons programs. Yes, Barack Hussein Obama built this, and we gave him the license to do it. Twice. Moreover, the feckless Obama Administration has now provided them with virtually unlimited cash cow funding as a direct result of the idiotic nuclear accord Obama and Kerry handed to Iran on a silver platter with flourishes. Think anyone on this planet can walk this genie back into its bottle? Think again. And our elected Congress sits on its collective thumb, while those who would replace Obama have reduced what used to be relatively honorable election campaigning to a puerile school-yard fracas. 

Come quickly Lord, Marana'tha!
