Forget the Smiles: US, Israel Still Divided on Iran

Israel, because of its more limited strike capabilities, cannot wait much longer before it loses the ability to act.

Khamenei, according to Israeli intelligence estimates, does not take the threat of military action against Iran seriously at all.

  1. Month by month, and week by week. The middle east spins more out of control. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  2. The Middle East is cleansing itself from rulers that are interested in their survival rather than the wish of their people. This is the first step to real self determination, that the Sunni / Shiites struggle must delineate the new boarders of the Middle East, after which the struggle of the extreme vs. the moderates must take place, and when that is settled we will see if the confrontation with the West and Israel will take place or not depending on who gets the upper hand and rule the Middle East after the struggle. One thing for sure, in the future the West will never have the influence it has enjoyed for the last 80 years.
