Washington Free Beacon: “The Tomahawk missile program—known as “the world’s most advanced cruise missile”—is set to be cut by $128 million under Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal and completely eliminated by fiscal year 2016, according to budget documents released by the Navy.”
In addition to the monetary cuts to the program, the number of actual Tomahawk missiles acquired by the United States would drop significantly—from 196 last year to just 100 in 2015. The number will then drop to zero in 2016. The Navy will also be forced to cancel its acquisition of the well-regarded and highly effective Hellfire missiles in 2015, according to Obama’s proposal.”
Opinion: Believing what I believe and knowing that this must happen – does not make it easier to report on. Forgive me for sounding like a broken record, but depending on where we are on the Bible’s timeline, at some point America’s power and standing will have to give way to a rising Europe or revived Rome of Daniel 2:31-43; 9:26.
We know from Ezekiel 38:13 that in the great wars of the last days, before the return of Christ, there is no nation resembling America in a position of power. Ezekiel depicts America and colonies as the young lions, the lion being the symbol for Britain, as bystanders.
My wife/editor has been working on the Roman Empire nations as to where they are today. My theory is that there will be 70 nations in Antichrist’s empire (70 nations make up the descendants of Noah, 70 weeks of Daniel, 70 people went with Jacob to Egypt, etc.)
So far we have counted 66 that are in the UfM (Union for the Mediterranean), which includes the 28 EU nations, or pending membership.
The US would make 67, and Switzerland and Norway would get us to 69. If my theory is right, one more is needed. Crimea was once part of the Roman empire and right now I cannot imagine how it will eventually return.
So we will keep watching…
