“And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great…
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 / reveal unto thee the judgment of
- the great whore that sitteth upon many waters [peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues], that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth,
- the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns…was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition,
- the ten horns are ten kings, which…receive power as kings one hour with the beast…shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” (Revelation 17)
At least 37 million people, and possibly up to 59 million, have been displaced by America’s “global war on terror” since it was launched by former President George W. Bush’s administration nearly 20 years ago,according to a new report from Brown University’s Cost of War project…
in and from Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, the Philippines, Libya, and Syria. This exceeds those displaced by every war since 1900, except World War II,” the report states.
The people that America itself has classified as militants are not suffering in silence.
The strategic relationship between the United States and Turkey is over.
“At the time appointed he [northern / Christian king] shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter. For the ships [military vehicles on land, sea and air signifying military power in general] of Chittim / Cyprus / Turkey] shall come against him:” (Daniel 11:29-30)
While Turkey remains formally a NATO ally, it is not a partner of the United States. The United States should not be reluctant to oppose Turkey directly…take the following steps:
- Recognize that the United States and Turkey have gone from ambivalent allies to antagonists.
- Develop alternatives to Incirlik Air Base . . . the use of the base to advance U.S. interests is no longer assured…
- end its cooperation with Turkey on the F-35 program…America’s most advanced military aircraft.
Ankara acquired S-400 missiles from Russia, which were originally built to target NATO hardware. The purchase strained Turkey’s relations with other NATO members, who considered the move a threat to their security.

Turkish Army Places 1st in New Ranking of Mideast Military Strength
The popular ranking site Global Firepower, which orders the strength of 139 countries according to their military prowess, recently published its updated ranking of military might in the Middle East for 2021. Judging based on “values related to manpower, equipment, natural resources, finances and geography,” the site claims to present each country’s “potential war-making capability” when “fought by conventional means.”
The Middle East ranking follows its placement of the Turkish army first with Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Israel, as the region’s top military powers.
The military strength of the United Arab Emirates, ranked sixth in the region, is on the rise, while No. 7 Iraq and No. 8 Syria – formerly prominent military powers in the region – continue their decline following years of crippling inner-country conflicts. Lebanon is last on the list at No. 15…
The Turkish Armed Forces are the only NATO members in the ranking, a fact that adds to their strength. The Turkish army is second in size in the NATO alliance, with the US being the largest. “They have a very large land force, on a global level,” Ben-Dor says of the Turkish army.
Notably, as part of its membership in NATO, Turkey…hosts nuclear bombs in its territory…
Saudi Arabia’s spending in 2019 on defense was topped globally only by the US and China, and reached a total of $78.4 billion. With such a massive budget, it is no surprise that the country is ranked fourth in the region…
The top three of the global ranking, in order, are the United States, Russia and China….Israel rounds out the top 20.

the Taliban entered the Afghan capital of Kabul with Turkey’s support, completing a rapid takeover over the country with a speed that surprised many Afghans and Americans alike…

August 12, 2022: Turkey’s Engagement With Afghanistan Has Grown Since Taliban Takeover
Which means that Turkey is consolidating its power in the Middle East from Libya to Afghanistan. This is building an empire.
Add in Russia and its Eastern European satellite states and you’ve got a larger extent than the Ottoman Empire in 1918.

Joint Statement of the Leaders of the Five Nuclear-Weapon States on Preventing Nuclear War and Avoiding ArmsRacesFrom The White House…
We affirm that a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought…nuclear weapons—for as long as they continue to exist—should serve defensive purposes, deter aggression, and prevent war. We believe strongly that the further spread of such weapons must be prevented.
Keep in mind that bit about “speaking lies at the same table.” Whatever is said is a lie of the devil. We should absolutely expect nuclear weapons to be used. In the near future.

THE DAY AFTER: Anticipating trouble in the event of a US withdrawal from Syria
The withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan…was followed by the rapid collapse of the pro-Western government of Afghanistan and its replacement by the Taliban. This has led to questions about what will happen if and when US forces withdraw from northeastern Syria…
…withdrawal from Syria would be a serious gamble for US national security concerns in Syria and the region.
“Region” is diplomacy for “Turkey”.
