Making Sense of Chaos

Update 14 February 2011: The Egyptian pro-demcoracy folks accepted the removal of President Hosni Mubarak with glee and revelry. The cheers had hardly subsided when one of the first acts of the new ruling Egyptian Supreme Council of military officers was to disolve the parliament, suspend the Egyptian constitution and impose marital law. Just what the pro-democracy demonstrators wanted, eh? And some think that Isaiah 19 is not a prophetic fulfillment in progress. Sigh.

Update: 11 February 2011: Caroline Glick has written an article published in today’s Jewish World Review entitledIdeologically-driven strategic ineptitude which picks-up where my article left off. Caroline’s article provides in-depth coverage of most the major issues (i.e. threats to world peace and U.S. national security) in which this administration’s blatant “ideologically motivated” incompetence and deliberate “strategic dementia” is leading the world down a path to an apocalypse which the Iranian Ayatollah and his sock puppet so fervently dream of. Indeed, all that will soon be left is for the Iranian’s to step in to fill the vacuum the Obama Administration is creating.

UPDATE 10 February 2011: The Egyptian military has now taken control of the country, and Hosni Mubarak is expected to announce his resignation shortly. While the MSM is quick to discuss how the Ihkwan Muslimun (Muslim Brotherhood) is the best organized opposition group in Egypt, they routinely fail to report that the Ikhwan are even better organized within the Egyptian military forces. Catch-22. And if Obama thought Mubarak was insubordinate to his dictates, just wait until the Egyptian generals tell Obama to go fly a kite. Of course, it goes without saying that the night is still young in Egypt this evening.

09 February 2011: Here is my straight-up take on what is occurring real-time in the real-world Middle East. It is these real-world events which will bring about the fulfillment of all the relevant Bible prophecies.

Unlike the Inept-in-Chief, his Ikhwan advisors and appointed incompetents in the U.S. State Department who have been attempting to micromanage the crisis in Egypt via remote control, there are other forces at work that have real boots on the ground in the former land of the Pharaohs.

When Obama & Company declared that the transition from Hosni Mubarak’s rule to whatever is supposed to come next had to begin “now” with Mubarak’s immediate resignation, they utterly failed to account for specific provisions of the Egyptian Constitution.

Not 24 hours later and still breathless from all of the overnight backpedalling, they realized the enormity of their sophomoric gaffe and then demanded that Mubarak sign all the documents necessary to transition the government to whatever it may be next and demand yet again the he get the heck out of Cairo “yesterday” Isn’t this the same kind of over-the-top, pompous American arrogance that Obama went on a world tour to apologize for? What is obvious here is that our king, The One, not only has no clothes on, but he has no alibi.

Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government, are you paying attention to this? Do you really want these people working as a “good offices” intermediary on the issues of Israeli sovereignty and “Palestinian” statehood? I should hope not. I should hope that Israel answers to a Higher Authority than the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Now, about those other forces. If you listen to the MSM they’re all gaga over the presence of Code Pink in Cairo’s Tahrir Square protests. Code Pink is a Leftist distraction involved on a Middle Eastern tour courtesy of the Ikhwan Travelling Three-Ring Circus.

The real boots on the ground are the Ikhwan’s “A-Teams,” the Takfir wal Hijra and HAMAS in Gaza. These Islamic purists, born and bred of the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun, are killing Egyptian security forces in running gun battles in the Sinai, in the border town of Rafah and conducting hit-and-run military operations like the one last weekend near Al-Arish that took out a natural gas pipeline serving Israel and Jordan. Half of Israel’s electricity comes from that gas. This occurred in the same timeframe as Egypt’s receiving permission for a waiver of the Egyptian-Israel peace treaty to deploy a couple of combat brigades into the Sinai. Eventually the other real boots on the ground, the IDF, will have to do something to both contain HAMAS and the other Gaza terrorists and to maintain the increasing threat to its peace treaty with Egypt.

These are the real issues that need to be addressed to make sense of the current chaotic scenario unfolding in Egypt. Jordan and the Saudi’s are also threatened by these same forces. And Lebanon, now firmly in Iranian orbit and guarded by Hezbollah and IRGC regulars, is a time bomb whose detonation will occur much sooner than expected. It is in America’s utmost national security interest to have these issues dealt with resolutely by experienced professionals. Keeping our B-Team on the job is a recipe for an unprecedented disaster of the Biblical Isaiah 19 and beyond proportions.

As much as this grieves me to bear witness, America has no doubt been allowed by God to be governed by the B-Team so that we could indeed fumble the ball. As painful as it is to watch, the Bible prophecy has to unfold, and for our influence to not be a restaining hand, we have to be led by a modern Neville Chamberlain.

I agree Nathan; obviously I'm painfully grieved in the same way. All we can do is pray on it and leave it all with Him.

I've been saying since 2008 that 1 Samuel 8 may have been a lesson for Israel, but it's also a valuable lesson for the United States of America today.

this may show my lack of understanding of history, but last night i saw a film on what happened in iran in 1978-1979 when the radical ayetollah took over.....thank you jimmy carter. besides the threat of nuclear weapons how is what`s happening in egypt any different? it seems to be exactly the same.

It is pretty much the same.

Instead of Shi'a islamists trying to usurp a popular revolt, as happened in Iran, in Egypt it's Sunni islamists doing the usurping.

There's also no central figure in Egypt like the ayatollah, and no apocalyptic Twelveresque in Egypt either.

I reply:

Makes perfect sense to me since the MSM are as clueless as DNI Clapper.

It ain't over, not by a long shot.

mark3210,

What I make of it is that it is the truth... finally.

He admits some were discovered. He did not say all were discovered.

Only WMD strikes can attain the AQ goal of eclipsing the carnage of 9/11 and their now 13-year old nuclear fatwa.

Hello Sean

I am also guilty of this kind of truth evasion. Just enough to be honest, not enough to drop myself in it!

One of my daughters in law is on to me; she questions me closely until I clam up and just grin at her. :D I admit nothing!

She should have interviewed that poor man (her practice on me has made her super efficient). There is no doubt they have found something, somewhere, and thank the Lord that they have. imo

God bless
Sue
