Dear Friends and Readers,
I write this with quite some trepidation. I’m a glass half-full type of guy. Consequently I naturally and instinctively look and see the positive in the future. I’ve never been the type of person who dwells on the bad experiences and influences from my past. In fact, one of my all-time favourite songs is this one;
I hope that Johnny Nash oldie boosted your spirit because I’m afraid that what I have to say about the possible future of the USA is not for the squeamish or for those who have a tendency to worry about events that are; a) out of your control, and b) in the future. It might be better if you just skipped this entry and went on to read about a more pleasant topic. I mean this 100% seriously – please skip the remainder of this entry if bad news about violence upsets you!
Now, from this point onwards, I trust that I’m addressing those of us with the stronger constitutions.
I don’t consider myself as an enemy of President Obama, even though I voted for John McCain in 2008 and for Mitt Romney in 2012. Many folks have literally mocked me when I’ve stated my true feelings about why Barack Obama was elected with a strong majority on both occasions, with a 53-47% margin in 2008, and 51-47% in 2012.
President Obama is a judgement from God on the USA.
I rather fear that the USA, and I mean specifically the citizens of our country, will have to pay in blood for the calculated inaction of our President. If you have been closely following the wars in Syria and Iraq and the growth of ISIS, you will have seen some of their tactics in action. And unfortunately, when it is to their advantage, they will not hesitate to use the same terror in Houston, in Detroit, in Washington DC., and in New York. Not to leave out London, Paris, and Madrid. Any country that does not have secure control of its borders and/or substantial domestic Muslim populations, will be subject to the terrifying results of extremist Islamic theology.
ISIS’ weapon of choice when they want to soften up a future target? SVBIEDs and VBIEDs. Are you unsure what those letters stand for? I’m sorry to say that I fear that before long (6 mos, 12 mos, 15 mos?), those letters will strike the same fear in the hearts of Americans that they currently do in the minds of innocent and law-abiding civilians in Syria and Iraq. For the happily uninitiated, here’s a full translation;
VBIED – Vehicle Bomb, Improvised Explosive Device, and its brother or sister,
SVBIED – Suicide Vehicle Bomb, Improvised Explosive Device.
And here is a chilling example, no blood or gore pictured in the video, but chilling nonetheless. By the way, Green is the colour of Islam, and a prominent colour in biblical end times (the Green Horse);
When, at first, I heard the first few, forward thinkers proposing that it might be possible that we had a Sunni Muslim residing in our White House, I thought, nah! … it can’t be. But the more ridiculous our Foreign Policy becomes, the more it makes sense. What else could be the source of the following strange confluence of US foreign policy and inaction? How else to explain his quite obvious dislike of Israel? His opposition to an anti-Muslim Brotherhood military government in Egypt? His fatal support of the Arab Spring revolts that have led to the rise of Muslim terrorism in every Arab country? And, most recently, his refusal to help the democratically elected Shia government in Iraq?
Compare the US President to his opposite number in Russia, Vladimir Putin; a leader who would look perfectly at home sitting in a New York mob hangout, an old-fashioned brutal, non-democratic dictator, who is following in the steps of Stalin and Mao. Putin stood solidly by the side of Assad (a non-Sunni) – and had President Obama joined Russia in condemning the revolution, there would probably be no ISIS today. Make no mistake; Assad is utterly brutal. He would have destroyed ISIS in the only way that it is possible to end their reign of deliberate, practiced and calculated terror.
Assad would have exterminated every one of them. Sooner or later, someone will have to do just that. That is unless you think that we will be able to negotiate them out of existence? We have now joined in a coalition with the supposedly moderate Islamic states with the announced goal of “neutralizing the ISIS threat”. Let us hope and pray that we are successful in that goal.
But, very unhappily, I have to warn everyone reading this article, we too will soon experience the results of our President’s inaction in securing our southern borders and his mistaken belief that we could sit on the sidelines of the Syrian Civil War without experiencing some of the horrifying effects of war with extremist Islam.
In Jesus’ precious name,
