The Bush Doctrine
One single news event caught my eye and began the thought process which led to this article: North Korea suddenly announced that it had agreed to stop its nuclear development program and to symbolically destroy one of its cooling towers. Almost immediately, the world's press began to beat the drums of peace.
After wrangling with the United States since 1974 over the issue of whether it should proceed with its own indigenous nuclear warhead development, and without any fresh pressure put upon it, North Korea suddenly "comes to terms" -- sort of -- with the American position and agrees to stop any further development.
Now, why would North Korea hand such a diplomatic victory to the much hated Bush Administration? Why not wait six months and hand such the coup to the 44th President of the United States?
No sooner than North Korea apparently agreed with the Bush position, but peace seemed ready to break out in other areas as well. Is it possible that the last six months of the Bush Administration are going to produce that false peace of which the Apostle Paul warned?
That is the story of this article -- and it is an intriguing one at that. Our starting point is October, 2001, just weeks after the attacks of 9/11. We captured this story in NEWS1750, entitled, "President Bush Declares War On All 'Axis of Evil' Nations",as we explained "The Bush Doctrine"!
Just days after the 9/11 attacks, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz stated that future American policy would be to "end the states" which promoted and which threatened to carry out terrorism. At the time, we could find no evidence that any past American leader had threatened to "end states", short of a declaration of war.
Less than one year later, President Bush announced his "Bush Doctrine", a declaration which set the stage for the Iraqi invasion. Let us pick up the story from our archived article, NEWS1750.
NEWS BRIEF: "Bush Says US Must Prepare For Preemptive Action", by Adam Entous, Rense.com, June 2, 2002.
"WEST POINT, N.Y. (Reuters) - Without mentioning Iraq by name, President Bush told future U.S. military leaders on Saturday they must be prepared to launch preemptive strikes to keep 'terrorists and tyrants' from obtaining weapons of mass destruction. 'We face a threat with no precedent,' Bush told the first class to graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point since the Sept. 11 attacks. Echoing the dire warnings of other administration officials, Bush said: 'The dangers have not passed ... because we know the terrorists have more money and more men and more plans'."
"We cannot put our faith in the words of tyrants who solemnly sign nonproliferation treaties and then systematically break them,' Bush said. 'If we wait for threats to fully materialize, we will have waited too long. We must take the battle to the enemy, disrupt his plans and confront the worst threats before they emerge'."
This doctrine set the stage for the horrendous American-led invasion of Iraq, an invasion which even Bush's own 9/11 commission was forced to admit was based upon "faulty intelligence", lies and exaggerations (Read the full story in NEWS1890 AND NEWS1890B).
During his State of the Union Address, January 29, 2002, President Bush coined the term, "Axis of Evil" and stated that he was going to neutralize them!
" 'Axis of evil' is a term coined by United States President George W. Bush in his State of the Union Address on January 29, 2002 in order to describe governments that he accused of helping terrorism and seeking weapons of mass destruction. Bush named Iran, Iraq, and North Korea in his speech. Bush's presidency has been marked by this notion as a justification for the War on Terror." (Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia)
Therefore, for the past six years, President Bush has aimed massive American military and diplomatic initiatives against these three nations, intending to bring them down. He invaded Iraq, threatened repeatedly to attack Iran, and exerted enormous amounts of verbal threats and diplomatic initiatives against North Korea! The one major difficulty which this emphasis is causing President Bush is that he is perceived right now as losing all three of these conflicts. That perception could be deadly in the Fall campaign to Senator John McCain as he attempts to secure the White House for the Republican Party. In fact, Republican leadership would like nothing more than for these efforts against the "Axis of Evil" countries to just go away.
However, it may be possible that the script has been written in such a way that President Bush will be handed a "victory" in each of these three struggles, and may even produce a "Peace Dividend" of enormous proportions, just in time for the Fall Presidential Campaign!
Let us begin with North Korea
As we have already stated, above, North Korea suddenly and inexplicably agreed to stop developing its nuclear weapons, and to hand over requested documents to the Chinese. The surprising nature of this sudden agreement is that North Korea was under no pressure of the moment to suddenly "capitulate". After successfully resisting President Bush's pressure for six long years -- in effect "thumbing her nose" at the American President and getting away with it -- North Korea suddenly appeared to cave in to his key demands.
To symbolize this "end" to their nuclear development program, North Korea publicly blew up one of their main nuclear cooling towers.
In January, 2007, President Bush announced that he was going to temporarily "surge" American forces upward in order to produce the kind of victory which would allow him to establish a stable democracy in Iraq and which would allow him to begin to draw down forces. At the time, the Iraqi insurgency was creating absolute hell for the American led Coalition Forces. Anti-war sentiment seemed to be gaining the kind of ground which began the massive protest movement during the Vietnam War Era.
However, a development occurred which was both major and unexpected.
The radical Shi'ite cleric, Sadr, ordered his Mahdi Army to unilaterally stand down and observe a ceasefire, in early 2007, just a few weeks after President Bush announced his "surge". The Mahdi Army had been a major thorn in the side of Coalition Forces, so when they stopped attacking and firing, the military situation on the ground immediately started getting better. Now, the situation has so "improved" that both Democrats and Republicans are talking about it, and the Shi'ite government of Iraq is bragging about how wonderfully it is gaining control over the insurgents.
It is likely that President Bush can soon declare victory in this war -- just in time for the Fall elections!
In the past several months, war rhetoric against Iran has been hitting new levels of intensity. Cutting Edge has noted, time and time again, that Iran has possessed nuclear weapons since early 2002, having bought them "off-the-shelf" from Pakistan, while purchasing theater missiles from North Korea (Read full details in NEWS2120, entitled, "Nuclear Armed Iran vs Nuclear Armed America: Whom Should The World Fear?")
We also noted that President Bush admitted in December, 2007, that American intelligence had been wrong about Iran pursuing her own nuclear weapons program. He stated that he now knew that Iran had stopped trying to develop nuclear warheads by the end of 2003 (Read full details in NEWS2256, entitled, "President Bush Pulls Iranian Military Option Off The Table - Completes Total 'About-Face' On The Issue".)
However, in the past several months, Western verbal threats and military activity have combined to hit Iran with the threat of an attack on its nuclear facilities. Iran has responded belligerently and Russia has again come to Iran's defense. The result has been a dramatic increase in the tensions in this oil-rich and oil-sensitive area of the world. Oil prices have consistently shot upward with each new threat. In fact, some analysts believe that the only reason speculators have been able to keep oil from plunging dramatically is because of these repeated threats. In fact, we document how these verbal threats have been used recently to reverse falling oil prices - NEWS2300, entitled, "Sky High Oil Prices - Certain Signs By Which You Can Know When Prices Will Be Coming Down")
As we speak, the war tension with Iran continues hot and heavy.
However, there is a possibility that Iran may reach agreement with Javier Solana of the European Union which will bring at least a three month and perhaps a six month reprieve in tensions.
NEWS BRIEF: ""Secret US-Iranian Dialogue Brings Oil Prices down, Shakes up Mid East Alliances", DEBKAfile Intelligence, July 8, 2008
"Oil prices suddenly slumped Tuesday, July 8, as predicted by DEBKA-Net-Weekly on June 27, under the impact of the secret American-Iranian talks embarked on last month to solve burning issues by diplomatic engagement. These talks between the US and Iranian delegations, representing President George W. Bush and Iranian supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have yielded ad hoc understandings on controversial issues."
A few months ago, Cutting Edge reported that secret American-Iranian talks were occurring behind the scenes discussing how the American military could exit Iraq under the cover of "victory". Evidently, these talks also included the broader issue of Iranian-American hostile verbal exchanges. If the time in the Plan had come to cease the "Rumors of War" rhetoric, this type of dialogue should be expected.
"The American side was willing to refrain from military action against Iran before the end of the Bush presidency in January 2009..."
"Iran undertook to open the way for the US military to continue to go from strength to strength in fighting al Qaeda and the Sunni guerrilla insurgents in Iraq, to allow President Bush to claim his Iraq campaign had ended successfully before leaving the White House..."
"In the background of the secret dialogue is the Bush administration’s ambition to help fellow-Republican Senator John McCain get elected to the White House."
On July 19, Iranian negotiators are to meet with E.U. negotiators. News reports indicate that it is highly possible that Iran will agree to a 3-6 month cessation of her nuclear program. Such a time period would give President Bush the ability to claim victory against Iran -- another one of the three "Axis of Evil" nations. President Bush can claim that his incessant program of pressure against Iran produced "victory".
At this point -- and IF Iran agrees as we outlined, above -- President Bush can claim "victory" against each one of his original "Axis of Evil" nations! Why, his political stock would absolutely skyrocket!
Israel - Palestinians
But, there is one more initiative which could land President Bush the Nobel Peace Prize -- a Palestinian State carved out of Israel.
While several other American presidents have enunciated support for a Palestinian State, only President Bush has made it a centerpiece of his administration.
After months of apparently languishing on a back burner, Prime Minister Olmert suddenly announced that peace had never been closer with the Palestinians!
NEWS BRIEF: "Olmert says Mideast peace deal closer than ever", Excite News, July 13, 2008
"PARIS (AP) - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that Israel and the Palestinians have never been closer to a peace deal than now. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, standing with Olmert at the French presidential palace, said both sides are 'serious and want to achieve peace'."
"Olmert and Abbas held talks Sunday with French President Nicolas Sarkozy ahead of a sweeping summit launching the Union for the Mediterranean, bringing together leaders of some 40 nations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. 'We have never been as close to a possible (peace) agreement as today', Olmert told reporters ... the atmosphere was friendly when Olmert and Abbas posed on the steps of the Elysee Palace with Sarkozy in the center, arms linked."
However, this false peace will soon result in all-out war between Israel and the Palestinians, which shall culminate in the annihilation foretold in Obadiah 15-18 (Read full details in NEWS2095, "LEADING ORTHODOX JEWISH SCHOLARS CONFIRM CUTTING EDGE TEACHING THAT TODAY'S PALESTINIANS ARE THE "HOUSE OF ESAU" (Obadiah 15-18)
This "peace agreement" between Israel and the Palestinians might lead to the famous prophecy of which the Apostle Paul warned in 1 Thessalonians 5:3:
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." (1 Thess 5:3)
If Israel and the Palestinians announce that they have reached agreement, and if they do so before the end of the year, President Bush might yet be able to proudly preside over a mammoth news conference at which he can brag to the world that his policies have once again proven to be the correct ones. At this point, the following prophecy will be fulfilled concerning the "House of Edom", the modern-day Palestinians.
"They shall call its nobles to proclaim the kingdom, but nothing shall be there ..." (Isaiah 34:12; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
When President Bush, the Israeli Prime Minister, and the Palestinian President Abbas announce the creation of the Palestinian State, they shall be proclaiming an empty, useless nation, for the Bible foretells that "nothing shall be there". The infamous infighting for which the Palestinians are notorious will undoubtedly take over and rend the new state from limb to limb. Hamas will battle Abbas' Fatah and both will battle Hezbullah. The life of the new Palestinian state could be measured in weeks.
At that point, the prophecy in Obadiah 15-18 will begin to occur as we outline in NEWS2095, and the second part of Isaiah 34:12 shall occur: "... and all its princes shall be no more."
If President Bush completes his second term in office as a "peacemaker", he will still have to deal with an angry international community waiting to try him for war crimes. Bush may well discover that his "peacemaker" mantle will wear well only on the domestic scene and will not protect him at the International Criminal Court.
Watch your Daily News carefully, because if my hunch is correct, the last six months of the George W. Bush Presidency could produce that false peace of which the Apostle Paul warned. Truly, the world is spinning into the End of the Age!
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.
