The world is in for big trouble

Reader comment on item: Why Yemen Matters

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Mar 29, 2015 at 12:11

DEBKA has detailed the many dangerous failings of the nuclear accord that President Obama has illegally signed with Iran (without congressional ratification, and contrary to the IAEA rules). The nugget of it is:

The tons of spoken and printed verbiage poured out on the Iranian nuclear issue and ongoing diplomacy year after year have exposed, rather than disguised, President Obama's willingness to sign a nuclear deal with Iran – however bad and whatever the price. The inescapable conclusion is that the US president has come around to accepting the reality of a nuclear-armed Iran. As seen from Washington, America never stopped India, Pakistan and North Korea from becoming nuclear powers, and has therefore decided it can live with a fourth - Iran.

Coming at a time when Saudi Arabia and the vast majority of Sunni Arab states are effectively at war with Iran (Iranian Gen. Soleimani is currently in Sana'a, leading the Houthi-Saleh defense), this Washington-Tehran deal is a slap in the face by Obama to our former friends in the region. If that weren't enough, note that while the Saudis et al were busy bombing the Iranian proteges in Yemen, the US was bombing in support of Iranian proteges in Iraq. We weren't simply playing both sides at the same time; we were overwhelmingly siding with Iran.

In passing, let me note that the French have chosen this moment, when the only country not involved with a war in the region is Israel, to begin its attack of Israel in the UN Security Council -- the day after the UN Human Rights council chose only peaceful, orderly Israel as the target of its attacks for "human rights violations" -- ignoring the continual flood of bombings, chemical weapons attacks, beheadings and other atrocities happening all over the region. For all the attention Obama has been getting for disowning Israel, the American delegation was the ONLY one in the whole world that stood up for Israel. Even the Canadians, Micronesians and Palauans have made themselves scarce when Israel really needs them. This amounts to very bad news for the gentile world.

Canada has been a particular disappointment. In effect, they have deserted the US-Israel bloc to join the antiSemitic Europeans. In 2016, their trade pact with the EU will kick in, making the rift complete; and if the US continues on the anti-Israeli course that Obama has charted for it, the US should follow Canada shortly thereafter: Israel will be on its own, as it was in 1948.

A couple of years ago, I was advocating that Israel preemptively attack Iran's nuclear capabilities, just as it did in the past against Iraq and Syria. The hewan cry against such talk was that if Israel took such a move, the "whole Middle East would erupt in war". Today, all of the Middle East already IS at war, from Tunisia to India (except, as I have noted, for Israel). Israel clearly has not been at fault for all this mayhem and madness, despite its being singled out by the world as the cause of it all. I wonder if now, after all this evidence that the "Middle East War" fearmongering was baloney, the Israeli government will continue to hold off on standing up for its people. Up until now, they have forborne out of fear of offending Obama; but Obama has made it abundantly clear how much he despises the Jewish race and nation. I am hoping that Israel WILL stand up, and do so in a timely manner.

Today, they are being accused of genocide and other such nonsense, for the "crime" of building homes for their citizens. What more can the world throw at them, if they prove themselves men? I'll answer my own question: The world will go completely insane, led, most likely, by the likes of Turkey's Erdogan. And after Israel smashes the Turks, the UN will take up the charge -- led by the US. That is what the Bible prophecies say will happen; so keep these words in mind as these things unfold, and remember that I said them.

Today, the Arabs are physically at war with Iran -- not just one Arab state, like Saddam Hussein's Iraq, but Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, Yemen, Jordan, Egypt, Sudan and Morocco. Such a confrontation hasn't happened since the Seventeenth Century. The US, Russia and China all stand on the side of the Iranians, while Europe and India sit on the sidelines; so the Arabs are fighting an uphill battle. What's more, Iran's Gen. Soleimani is in Yemen, guaranteeing that the Iranians will not capitulate in that country. Even so, I expect Iran to be defeated, and her allies to turn on one another.

Ultimately, the whole world stands against Israel. The whole world, therefore, is in for big trouble.

Shalom shalom :-)

I'd take that DebkaFile report about Soleimani being in Yemen with a grain of salt.
