"Of course, a very short but very deadly global war using nuclear weapons upon select population concentrations was contemplated and to tell you the truth, was not ruled out ..." ["Behold A Pale Horse", by William Cooper, p. 167, 177]
Heated public rhetoric has filled the newspapers and radio broadcasts since Summer, 2003, warning that Iran is nearly ready to produce nuclear weapons and that, if she were ever to actually produce those weapons, she would be an unacceptable risk to her neighbors and to Israel through direct military confrontation. Further, Iran is said to be ready to supply global terrorists with nuclear weapons, thus posing a risk to the United States, to Great Britain, and to the European Union.
Peoples of the world believe this rhetoric. Many must lie at wake during the night worrying about nuclear warheads bursting upon their heads.
America, on the other hand, is pictured in the world's media as being the most responsible power in the world when it comes to actually using nuclear weapons in combat. Peoples of the world believe this rhetoric. Few must lie at wake during the night worrying about nuclear weapons being used by the United States.
Is this public perception correct? Before we start our discussion, let us review the truths I learned in U.S. Army Intelligence, which I enunciated in November, 2001, just weeks after the 9/11 attacks. This article is NEWS1558, "Breaking Out of the Mental Box: Learning To Think In The Opposite Direction To Discover The Truth."
Quoting pertinent excerpts:
"One fact I was taught (in US Army Intelligence) was that, in order to arrive at the truth, one had to develop "Opposite Direction Thinking"; in other words, truth in many situations, especially strategic planning, was to be found in the opposite direction of the public rhetoric. During a build-up to war, for example, public rhetoric will speak of peace and treaties. A corollary to this dictum is that, when you see leaders who have obviously been building for war start talking peace, you know that the outbreak of war is probably imminent."
"New Age author, William Cooper, says: 'The secret societies were planning as far back as 1917 to invent an artificial threat ... in order to bring humanity together in a one-world government which they call the New World Order'." ["Behold A Pale Horse", p. 27]
If President Bush were actually going to invade Iran, he should have done so in April or May, 2003. At that time, public support for his "easy Iraq victory" was at an all-time high, all American aircraft carriers who had supported the March 20 invasion were still on duty, all air force planes supporting the invasion were still on hand, American forces had not bogged down in Iraq yet, and neither Russia nor China had yet come to Iran's aid diplomatically and militarily.
Therefore, the fact that President Bush did not invade Iran when he held all the right cards in his hand speaks to the probability that he never intended to attack Iran in the first place. Jesus spoke of both "Wars" and "Rumors of Wars" being prevalent in the Last Days. Iraq and Afghanistan have provided the "Wars" portion of this prophecy while the rhetoric about Iran has provided the "Rumors of Wars".
Finally, remember that Iran seems to be protected by prophecy against the kind of attack which would destroy either its government or its armed forces. Persia is foretold in Ezekiel 38-39 as being one of the countries which will march against Israel in the Latter Days. The government in control at that time has to be anti-West and anti-Israel, precisely as it is today. If President Bush successfully overthrows the present regime, he will institute a puppet government just as he has done in Iraq; this government will be pro-Israel and pro-West. Therefore, we expect that current Iranian government is protected by the prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39 from being overthrown; we may attack their facilities, but it seems to us that the government will be protected from actually being overthrown. Iran may suffer an attack from either Israel or America, but her government will not be overthrown, nor her armed forces destroyed.
In fact, President Bush's foreign policy is driving Russia and Iran into a tight alliance with each other, precisely the kind of alliance you would expect from two nations who will one day lead combined armies to an attack on Israel (Read NEWS2014 for full details).
With this as background, let us now continue forward, examining the proposition as to which nation poses the most danger to the world of launching a nuclear attack.
The first reality with which you must come to grips is that Iran has possessed nuclear weapons for at least 4 full years! Quoting from NEWS1660, "Mushroom Clouds In The Middle East":
NEWS BRIEF: "RUSSIAN GENERAL CONFIRMS IRAN HAS NUCLEAR WEAPONS!", Stratfor Intelligence, Week of June 4, 2002.
"A Russian general's statement about Iran's nukes fails to register with media. Sometime a slip of the tongue is so incredible that no amount of doctoring can explain it. And sometimes a slip of the tongue is as intentional as could be. Take an appearance by Russian Deputy Chief of Staff Gen. Yuri Baluyevsky. He gave a briefing on Friday in Moscow during the Bush-Putin summit and was asked about whether Iran actually fired the Shihab-3 intermediate-range missile in a successful test earlier this month. The second question was whether Iran can threaten Israel, Russia or the United States with its nuclear and missile programs.
"Then the Russian general takes a surprise turn: 'Now, as to whether or not Iran has tested something like that. Iran does have nuclear weapons,' Baluyevsky said. 'Of course, these are non-strategic nuclear weapons. I mean these are not ICBMs with a range of more than 5,500 kilometers and more."
Now this is shocking news, indeed! This Russian general has just confirmed that Iran has nuclear warheads and theater missiles with which to deliver them! And, he seems not to be concerned because these warheads cannot yet hit Russian soil. If Iran has nuclear weapons and the missile capability with which to deliver them to Israeli targets, then the entire calculation of military balance in the Middle East may just have changed.
Furthermore, President Bush was present at this news conference and heard the translation of this revelation from this Russian General. If he did not know it beforehand, he knew it in early June, 2002, from the lips of this general, that Iran already possessed nuclear weapons! Therefore, Bush knows he is simply regurgitating sheer propaganda when he warns of the "dangers" of an Iran developing her own nuclear weapons. Iran has nuclear weapons already, and has not used them on anyone -- yet.
Russia then stepped into the diplomatic fray between the United States and Iran -- in a very big way.
Quoting from NEWS1802:
NEWS BRIEF: "No strike on other countries, Putin warns US", Sify News, April 12, 2003.
"Saint Petersburg -- Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday warned the US-led coalition not to attack other countries under the pretext of promoting capitalist and democratic values after having defeated Iraq's dictatorial regime. 'We are not going to export capitalist, democratic revolutions,' the Russian leader told reporters as rumours in Washington allege that some elements of the US administration are mulling launching military operations against other Middle Eastern states. 'If we do, we're going to end up on a slippery slope to non-ending military conflicts. We can't let that happen,' Putin said at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and French President Jacques Chirac after holding talks with them."
Putin used the descriptive language "slippery slope" to describe America's actions. This term is usually reserved for the very special circumstance in which national actions are seen creating an inevitable slide into all-out war. Thus, the assassination of the Austrian Archduke Ferdinand started the world down a "slippery slope" to war that proved to be inevitable. It took fully 30 days for the first governments to declare war on each other, but very quickly thereafter, governments lined up on each side, until World War I was launched.
Remember that -- it took time for the event that caused World War I to fully play out into world war. We seem to be on this type of path now; however, events are taking several years to play out. President Bush's constant 4-year pressure on Iran has only thrown her into the arms of Russia -- exactly as we warned in NEWS2014. Therefore, what President Bush is doing is helping set the stage for the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38-39! By threatening to attack, but never doing so, Bush is driving Iran deeply into the Russian orbit.
Is this what he intended to do? Whether intentional or not, this unrelenting pressure is setting the stage for fulfillment of a most startling fulfillment of prophecy -- the Russian-led invasion of Israel.
Now, let us return to the subject of Iran having possessed nuclear weaponry since early 2002. How much of a threat to her neighbors has her arsenal proven? After all, that is the key to any country who possesses nuclear weapons -- will they handle the weaponry responsibly or will they threaten their regional neighbors? And, in this age of terrorism, will they give some small nuclear devices to terrorists who will use them against Western cities in acts of terror? Whether the countries in question are America, Great Britain, France, Russia, China, or South Africa, these are the questions which must be answered before one can conclude that any nation might be an unmanageable threat if it comes into possession of nuclear weapons.
In the world today, countries possessing nuclear weapons are controlled by a variety of religions:
* America, Great Britain, France -- Christianity prevails
* Russia -- Atheism -- the current leaders all come from the bowels of Communism
* China -- Buddhism/Communistic atheism
* India -- Hinduism
* Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia -- Islamic
Modern history records that, of these nations, controlled by men of these various religious persuasions, only one nation has ever exploded traditional nuclear bombs -- the United States when it bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945. Since that time, no regular nuclear bombs have been used against anyone by anyone. Untold tens of thousands have been built and deployed, at an untold cost of trillions of dollars; but, no nuclear bomb has been traditionally exploded since America's Harry Truman devastated these two Japanese cities at the very end of World War II.
What has stopped these nations who control nuclear warheads from launching them against an enemy? One acronym says it all: M.A.D. -- Mutually Assured Destruction.
In other words, a nation contemplating using such nuclear weapons against a neighbor is deterred because he knows his own nation will be bombed back into the Stone Age -- a radioactive Stone Age!
M.A.D. has worked quite well since 1945 and will continue to work.
Despite the shrill rhetoric coming from the Bush White House, raising the specter of nuclear mushroom clouds over the Middle East should Iran get possession of nuclear weapons, the facts are plain:
1) Iran has already had nukes since at least early 2002 and probably before;
2) Iranian leaders know that their nation and their extremely old civilization, will be wiped from the map by Israeli and American nuclear weaponry should she ever launch a nuclear war.
Iran has so far handled her possession of nuclear arms responsibly and will do so in the future because of M.A.D. Despite her fiery rhetoric about wiping Israel off the map, the reality is that she will be deterred from actually attacking. So far, Iran has acted the way other responsible countries have acted once they obtained the nuclear bomb.
We have already noted that America is the only nation in history who actually used nuclear bombs -- in 1945 against Japan.
Since then, her leaders have achieved a respectable image in the minds and hearts of the peoples of the world. Most people throughout the world seem to be comfortable with the idea that America has nuclear weapons and is developing new ones, because they believe the leadership in the White House to be responsible in the manner in which they manage those terrible weapons.
In fact, this public perception has allowed America to launch four nuclear wars since since 1991 -- and the world seems totally oblivious to this awful reality. Let us list these wars for your education.
1991 -- Gulf War I -- Please read NEWS1843 to see that 75% of those fighting men and women are now dying or are dead, and that two-thirds of all babies born since soldiers returned have been born with severe birth defects. George H.W. Bush was President.
1999 -- Bosnia and Kosovo in the Balkans -- William Clinton was President.
2001 -- Afghanistan -- President George W. Bush is President.
2003 -- Iraq -- President George W. Bush is President.
Thus, two of the Presidents who ordered forces to wage nuclear war were Skull & Bones Presidents -- Members of the most evil of Black Magick Masonic-type secret societies.
At this point, you are probably protesting that no nuclear warfare has been unleashed in these wars; after all, you have watched nightly news and you saw no mushroom-shaped white clouds which are so indicative that someone has exploded nuclear weapons. If this is your thinking, you are looking for the wrong indicator that American forces are using nuclear weapons.
You see, the nuclear war which these presidents have unleashed upon these nations is a silent type of nuclear weaponry -- Depleted Uranium! Effects are felt from days after exposure to up to 20 years later. Please take the time to read our section on Depleted Uranium, for we have posted numerous articles where we depict the disastrous medical results of this deadly weaponry which is killing both our own soldiers, the "enemy", and the innocent civilian populations of Iraq, Afghanistan, and nations over 1,000 miles away.
The answer to our headline question is clear: The peoples of the world have every reason to fear nuclear war from the United States, not from any "Axis of Evil" nation, so designated by President Bush. We all have to learn to look in the opposite direction of the public rhetoric if we are to hope to discern the truth. After the attacks of 9/11, President Bush declared that he was going to "end regimes" of a great number of nations throughout the world; a short time later, Bush declared war on all "Axis of Evil" nations thus setting in motion the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Is President Bush engaging in such super-heated rhetoric about the so-called severe threat posed by and Iran and North Korea armed with nuclear weaponry in order to shield his own nuclear wars from public scrutiny? This possibility certainly bears consideration.
Let us end this article with a current news story about the effects of Depleted Uranium. Read and weep.
NEWS BRIEF: "Holly of Pennsylvania and Arun of India Have an Urgent Message: Americans Wake-Up Now or You May End Up Dead Like Thousands of Others Around the World Caught in the Vice-Grip of the Bush War Machine", by Greg Szymanski, The Arctic Beacon, 19 Mar 2006
"While Holly Avila protests the Iraqi War from her small town in Pennsylvania, Arun Shrivastava of India is trying to alert the world of an ever growing 'circle of death' caused by the U.S. military's illegal use of depleted uranium in the Middle East ... millions of people like Avila, a musician, poet and grocery store clerk, and Shrivastava, a management consultant, are finally starting to "wake up and smell the coffee," giving the big boys with guns and money something to think about. 'They are killing us for sport using DU', said John McCarthy, one American war critic trying to alert the country of the impending worldwide calamity."
"And depleted uranium expert Leuren Moret recently added her message in a mass distributed email, saying the 'Trojan Horse' of the nuclear war is depleted uranium and "the circle of death," mentioned by Shrivastava, now measures 3.14 million square miles, putting 857 million people under a death sentence."
From the beginning of the Iraq War, we warned people that the entire populations of Afghanistan and Iraq are going to die within the next 20 years, and that their countries would be uninhabitable -- read the many articles in our section on Depleted Uranium . In NEWS1907 -- "PRESIDENT BUSH'S NUCLEAR WARS AGAINST AFGHANISTAN AND IRAQ NOW CONFIRMED!" -- we report that this deadly uranium dust has been falling over 1,000 miles from the battlefields. Given the strategic position of Afghanistan and Iraq, you can see how D.U. dust falling over 1,000 from each of these countries will contaminate the vast majority of the Middle East. This apparently is the price for a nation or a region to be a "Non-Integrating State"!
Now, let us return to Greg's article:
""Depleted uranium is a deadly toy in the hands of the ruling bloodlines. A particle of DU ingested or inhaled can cause one or more of the 90+ seriously debilitating diseases, fatal or temporarily non-fatal. The half life of DU is 4.5 billion years, and it can destroy living things and the environment; most importantly it can destroy perfectly healthy lives ... Evidences clearly indicate that depleted uranium is blowing in the wind all over the world. Its effects on health are showing up in distant lands. Earlier, gulf war veterans and local civilians were affected; now, of all the places, the US is showing six-fold increase in just lung cancer cases. 'Dr Rosalie Bertell says, 'Veterans and civilians (in these wars) WERE exposed to DU; and this inhaled DU represents a seriously enhanced risk of damaged immune systems and fatal cancers. Those immediately downwind die quickly, in hours or days. Those further downwind will take longer. Those around the world will eventually suffer an unimaginably painful premature death.'
"There is no time to wring one's hands. The people of this global village need to join hands in a global peaceful, non-violent, non-cooperation with governments that lie and kill. Let us all form small local committees and ask our governments to come clean on DU. Mobilize support to help veterans and civilians who are suffering without differentiating between race, caste, creed or religion. 'Tell every person connected with government, civil society, the police, and members of the armed forces that they are all in it up to their neck. Finally, inform yourself, educate your family and neighborhood; read the hundreds of authoritative papers written by scientists. Is there any reason to fear when all of us are under death sentence for a crime none of us committed? If we continue to cooperate with a few homicidal maniacs it'd make them more arrogant. The power is in your hand'."
Truly, the world is speeding toward the fulfillment of Seals One and Two of Revelation 6. D.U. is setting a long-term stage so that, when Antichrist arises, people will be dying in the manner and in the numbers foretold:
Seal One -- "And when He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature call out, Come! And another horse came out, flaming red. And its rider was empowered to take the peace from the earth, so that men slaughtered one another; and he was given a huge sword." (Revelation 6:3-4; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Notice the rider slaughtered men with a "huge sword"!
Seal Four -- "When the Lamb
broke open the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature call out, Come!
So I looked, and behold, an ashy pale horse [black and blue as if made so
by bruising], and its rider's name was Death, and Hades (the realm of the
dead) followed him closely. And they were given authority and power over a
fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with plague
(pestilence, disease) and with wild beasts of the earth."
Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
