Reader comment on item: Trump's Muslim Immigration Policy Is Evolving for the Better
in response to reader comment: "Antichrist" expectors will probably have to wait until Jan. 20, 2021

Expectations of this coming electoral process notwithstanding, it is becoming increasingly improbable that more than a tiny few will understand what is about to happen in America, Europe, the Middle East; and, oh, the rest of the world at large. As an example, the search for cessation of hostilities in the Syrian conflict is already over, almost as quickly as the inked dried, since none of the combatants were seriously thinking they could stop when an advantage might be had, especially the 'hudna' thinking militants.

That being said, if there are lingering doubts about the Russian and Iranian intentions, please; I'll continue when the repressions to blurt out the ironies of the entire engagements process as the participants of the brokerage of the cease fire go crawling into their respective corners to regroup, if that is even possible.

Meanwhile, the enemies of Israel are looking at how the Syrian conflict can be broadened to a cross border conflagration into the Golan and Israel proper. American political prospects will not necessarily produce the 'little horn,' but circumstantially will help set the forum. Whoever sets aside the authority of the Waqf over the Temple Mount will be the one the expectors should watch.

In any event, 2020 is way too far for this series of expectations from this observer: let us get past the 'lame duck' Candidate and his entreaties of globalists' expectations before America faints into a showdown from which no predecessor of similar political failures ever recovered.
