Biblical Catastrophe Indeed-But Whose Nuke?

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Rogue?
in response to reader comment: Biblical catastrophy

America is not the only nuclear threat in the Middle East, though certainly the most capable if the circumstances came to that. But let us regroup-what does America stand to gain if the nuclear option were expended? It is more likely that if Iran, for example, who head of state has said that if he found the means to advance the cause of the al-Madhi in the Islamic quest for 'ummah,' he would use it.

But to not make a too fine point of it, true evangelicals-if one reads their Holy Bible correctly- will likely not be around when the 'fire falls from the sky.' Reason: I am not convinced America needs to use nuclear power in such a reckless fashion, nor would I approve of it. Doing so would mean I do not trust my Savior enough to finish His will according to His WORD: yet that is exactly what I understand He is going to do, and He will do it. He does not need my approval.

On the other hand, would you trust any other world power who does have nuclear power NOT to use it if they came to that crossroad? In the Hebrew Holy Bible, the antecedents of the Saudi empire ask that very question, similar to the way you do.
