Investors Op-Ed: “As the New York Times reported last week, “American officials are increasingly worried that the buildup, if unchecked, will give China de facto control of an expanse of sea the size of Mexico and military superiority over neighbors with competing claims to the waters.”
Meanwhile, “analysts say the buildup will make it more difficult for the United States Navy to quickly defend allies with weaker militaries, like the Philippines,” said the Times. “The deployment of fighter jets, antiship missiles and more powerful radar in particular could embolden the Chinese Navy while giving American commanders pause, they said.”
U.S. Pacific Command chief Adm. Harry Harris last month told McCain’s panel that China was “changing the operational landscape in the South China Sea.”
Opinion: The consequences of President Obama’s leading from behind strategy (Libya, 2011) continues to show up around the world:
- Vladimir Putin’s take over of Crimea
- ISIS march across the Middle East
- US sailors on their knees before Iranian captors
- North Korea’s missile launches
- Iranian missiles with ‘Israel must be wiped from the map’ written in Hebrew
- China’s massive arms build up
Rev 9:13-16 “The sixth angel sounded his trumpet, and I heard a voice coming from the horns of the golden altar that is before God. It said to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four angels who had been kept ready for this very hour and day and month and year were released to kill a third of mankind. The number of the mounted troops was two hundred million. I heard their number.”
Possible Armageddon scenario:
China is not prophetically named in a war setting until Rev. 16:12 when the great river Euphrates is dried up to make way for the Kings of the East.
The two hundred million man army of Rev. 9, will likely come from the only nation with a large enough population/economy east of the Euphrates River (the traditional barrier between east and west) to stand and equip such an army – China (North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, etc.).
Antichrist will by this time be in control of much 0f the world’s oil and gas (US and Israel) leaving China and allies no choice but to dominate any nation in their path on a 3900-mile march to Jerusalem.
That battle for supremacy over nuclear-powered Pakistan/India along with Afghanistan and Iran will leave over 2 billion dead, while the motive for the march west is Israel’s rich natural gas fields in the Levant, and the recent massive oil find in the Golan Heights.
In the meantime, Antichrist will have moved his army to Jerusalem when he will be attacked by the king of the South (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, North Africa) and king of the North (Syria, Iraq, Iran and Russia) when he will get word of troop movement from the east, Daniel 11:40-45.
“Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared.” Rev. 16:12
The prophetic Campaign of Armageddon is fulfilled as the armies of the world surround Jerusalem (Luke 21:20) and Christ returns to put an end to the bloodshed and bring 1000 years of peace (Rev.20:1-2).
