Zero Hedge: “Patriotic passion” and “tears of joy” filled Beijing streets, writes Reuters, as China’s National Day military parade extravaganza wound up on Tuesday.
Though state media pundits have sought to assure the West it’s not at all about “flexing muscles, but showing military transparency,” it remains that citizens were handpicked by the government to merely stand on the sides of streets to watch phalanxes of tanks, armored vehicles, and the country’s newest high-tech aircraft roll by.
Perhaps there was some “patriotic passion” on proud display, and as state media dubiously touted as a day of “flags, songs, and sports” — but it remains, awkwardly, that as Reuters also points out— more …

- Kings of the East – China, India, South East Asia. including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan (Rev. 16:12)
The great Apostle John does not tell us the exact countries in each power bloc, but we can surmise from Zechariah 12:3 that many more will join in making up the prophesied 200,000,000 man army of Rev. 9:16.

“But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many.”

“And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.” Daniel 11:45
