Global SITREP C2-14: An Op-Ed on Stuff in General

Sign seen on the Road to Revelation

23 April 2014: Time and time again, when one thinks this or that event will turn out to be the proverbial 'straw that broke the camel's back,' something else occurs to further compound an already untenable and highly volatile situation. That's what I found myself thinking yet again in reading a few hundred OSINT reports in just the three days since Resurrection Day. 

Then I remembered Jesus' own Mount of Olives SITREP about the pains we should expect in these last days. A paraphrased executive summary would read something like: "There will be multiple wars and rumors of even more wars. Understand these events for what they are, but do not live in fear of them because they must occur in their appointed times, for the end of them is still in the future. Nations will rise up against each other; one dominion will provoke another dominion. This will result in acute food shortages, rampant plagues, and violent commotions all over the earth. Yet all these events are just the heralding of My coming again."

Just when one might think "this is it, something has got to give," and yet even more pressure comes to bear. A provocation here, a provocation there; gunshots here and gunshots there; the thunderous sound of jet engines and thousands of tanks and other armored vehicles rumble which seems to make the earth itself recoil in terror at the prospect of their belching smoke, fire and the smell of explosive charges.  Most people on the earth have never experienced war, they have no comprehension of it. However, as Jesus said, stand by...

There's a growing sense that Vladimir Putin cannot be trusted to act responsibly; that he is deliberately calculating each and every movement in the current crisis as if he were the conductor, his military forces his orchestra and the rest of the world a captive audience. Worst of all, to be perfectly blunt about it, Putin doesn't think, he knows that the current president of the United States is a wimp; that he's flexible enough to bend over backwards and stab any friend or ally in their back. Benjamin Netanyahu know this better than anyone else. Bibi knows that Obama just gave Sunni jihadists in Syria some of the best MANPADS money-can-buy for free, and which puts a lot of IAF pilots in harms way from American-made missiles. Some ally Obama is.

It seems to me that if there's an impetus for a truly unified Europe from Spain to the Arctic Circle and Ireland to Bucharest, then Vladimir Putin and his Russian Federation are proving to be it. There's certainly no warm and fuzzies coming Europe's way in any of the bouncing blank check assurances given by Veep Joey Biden; intelligent Europeans already understand that Vladimir Putin's objective is to unify Europe under his own goose-stepping boot. Could it be that the 'king of the north' will be responsible for getting the 'king of the west's' act together? It could very well be. Bible prophecy is fulfilled through the day-to-day events of secular world actors doing their thing, hooks notwithstanding.

So while there's the prospect of another world war erupting in Europe, on this side of the pond our totally corrupt and out-of-touch administration and its big government allies are completely consumed with persecuting ranchers in the American heartland who are trying to make a living and keep us fed with quality beef as well. Simultaneously, with the administration's blessing, the Islamonazi's of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah are running rampant all across America. 

Yet, not-so-strangely enough, "Dirty" Harry Reid's focus remains on what he refers to as the "domestic terrorists" who patriotically rallied to defend Clive Bundy's ranch against an over-reaching federal bureaucracy. Neither Obama nor Dirty Harry ever identified the 2009 Ft. Hood mass-murdering jihadist Nidal Hassan as a "domestic terrorist," no, they save that choice ad hominem attack for some real red-white-and-blue-blooded American patriots. Real-life American cowboys. What's wrong with this picture? Everything! To my American brothers out west, this Jersey guy says tell the Feds "Molon Labe!" Welcome them accordingly.

Addendum I: Speaking of the armed conflict occurring in the American west between our government's executive administration and We the People, I found an article written by Dr. Ben S. Carson on JewishWorldReview.com to also be very much worth your time to read. Enjoy and Ben Carson for President.


Addendum II:  I simply have to include this one final item in this Op-Ed. It is both a heart-felt and well deserved salute to our parents, grandparents, and in some cases perhaps even great-grandparents, and relatives of every kind who were part of the "Greatest Generation," which not-so-coincidentally I believe, also includes the generation of Israel's founding mothers and fathers. Let this also be a lesson to those naysayers who say we can't do something about the current situation. On the contrary, with God, we can do anything!


"During just the 3 and 1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the United States of America produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34,000,000 tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns and 2,500,000 military trucks.

Furthermore, The United States of America placed 16.1 men in the uniform of our various branches of the armed forces, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic Ocean, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific Ocean and marched across Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered both Germany and Japan.

It is worth noting that during the almost exact same amount of time the Obama Administration could not build a functioning web site."

Marana'tha!

Well spoken and even more relevant.

Sean, ha! Come and get them!! The 300 Spartans. THX for your update.

I want Jesus to come and Harpazo us all out of here as much as anybody else does.

But I also know that while we're still here we have an obligation to live and uphold the values imparted to us by our Lord and Savior and our God.

Speaking truth to power is always a good thing.

It's now been 5 full months since the "interim deal" with Iran.

Obviously most of us (myself included) didn't expect Israel to stand down this long.

But at this point it has to be near the end!

Sean Osborne said...

Mark,

If you're one who is inclined to accept what the DEBKA Weekly has to say about the end of the 6-month interim accord, here's the headline for this week's edition:

"Estimated Timeline for Strike on Iran: Mid-May to Early June
Preparations by the US, Israel and Saudis are afoot with British and French naval participation"

Is waiting another 7-weeks doable?

Sean,
Bless your heart! You just put it in words that make this old woman's heart want to don her combat boots, go practice on her shooting skills and a loss of about 25 pounds in order to endure a field trip again. Not that I have ever had a field trip but my heart wants to get in the fray of the battle and send the enemy back to their dungeon of abode.

I was a child when WW2 started, remember it very well, and there was an ingredient that seems to be missing now days. All of the men in my family (HUGE ONE)enlisted either the day after Pearl or as soon as they could get to an enlistment board. A lot of them were farmers but that didn't stop them. They loved their country, every man of them. The men who were too old to enlist or physically 4F took jobs in the industries to make the machines, weapons, supplies and all that an Army needs to fight a war. Women took over the absent military men and factory workers jobs. I know there are still some that will do this but during those years, it was a matter of honor and loyalty.

One other thing, we all became as one and anyone that didn't was set aside as unfit to be an American. If you didn't serve in the Services of this USA, you didn't need to run for any kind of office in the government, organizations or even among the common labors. They were all labled, "Yellow Cowards" and it stuck.

This United States was a nation known for "The YANKS are Coming" and it meant, get out of their way. I truly believe that this current administration and the weak kneed socialized Press have misjudged the real Americans. If old women can feel that desire to get in the thick of the battle and not stop until they win or are no longer able to fight, how are the men handling it?

I used to believe DebkaFile but not anymore. They aren't much better than the likes of CNN, or any of the others.

Sean:

Good Morning my Brother,

I don't personally follow Debka, but do you think a strike on Iran could occur in Mid-May to Early June?

My feelings about the PM lately are pretty much one of not seeming to have any backbone. Especially after the speech he gave at the U.N., quoting scripture and what not. And then he tells the Palestinians that the door is always open for negotiating.

In His Name,
Brother Frank

GG5,

So was my own mother born just prior to WW2 - Grandpa had served in WWI, so she was a depression era baby born in '33. I remember as a kid hearing hers and my grandparents stories, literally dozens of 'Rosie the Riveter' stories, and all of the Civil Defense stories as well involving German infiltration via subs on our NJ beaches, and the of the just offshore battles to sink the subs of our beaches. The hull of u-869 lies several miles of the beach nearest my current home; went down with her entire onboard crew in 1943.

Everybody served in some capacity as you said. I remember my grandmother saying it was one's Christian duty to serve their nation, so they all did, or the "yellow" label was applied and it stuck forever.

Sean Osborne said...

Brother Frank,

Sure, it is possible. Given the current extremely volatile state of affairs in the Middle East, just about anything is possible to bring a preemptive strike upon Iran's nuclear infrastructure.

However, I am of the view that Jeremiah 49:34-39 involves a coalition of nations striking Iran sometime prior to the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38/39.

Sean,

I can't speak for others, but I keep thinking that while many of us including myself feel impatient right now, we may wish a year or two from now that we could go back to the period we are currently in.

Who knows what horrors lie ahead?

Sean Osborne said...

Mark,

I can pretty much guarantee you that as completely horrific as the coming wars will be, they will still pale in comparison to what occurs during the Lord's wrath of the 70th Week.

I also have no doubt that when they do erupt many will wish they could go back to a day just like today.

Kenneth Moore said...

Dr. Ben Carson is absolutely correct.

This is also at the bottom of the page.
http://moneymorning.com/ext/schiff/articles/schiff-americans-will-lose-everything-in-coming-market-crash.php?iris=182531

Eventually interest rates will rise... and when they do, Schiff says, stocks will tank and bonds dip to nothing. Massive new tax hikes will be imposed and programs and entitlements will be cut to the bone.

So Social Secuity will no be secure and neither will Army Retirement I receive.
Back to hunting and fishing to live. Come Lord Jesus Come.
