In previous emails in this series, it has been explained that the expansionary policies of the Western Alliance (the thesis) will provoke a response from the nations that feel threatened by this expansion, which will provoke them to form an anti-thesis. We now have official confirmation that the process for the formation of this anti-thesis is underway.
On October 4th Vladimir Putin (currently the Russian Prime Minister) announced his intention to create the Eurasian Union – in an article that was published in the Russian newspaper Izvestia (an unusual thing for Putin to do). Putin had recently indicated his intention to run again for the presidency of the Russian Federation (elections to be held in March – which Putin will win), and the article clearly indicates that a Eurasian Union will be a major foreign policy goal for Russia. In the article, Putin said that the future Eurasian Union will, “create real conditions to change the geo-political and geo-economic configurations of the entire continent and have an undoubtedly positive global effect.” Yes Mr. Putin! Positive for Russia – but not necessarily for the rest of the world.
Such a union will be positive for Russia because Russia will dominate this union (as Germany dominates the European Union). Russia actually benefits from the pressure being exerted by the Western Alliance, because Putin will be able to use the fear generated by this Western Alliance expansion, to persuade the other nations in the region, to join his Eurasian Union.
With the creation of a Eurasian Union, impetus will be created for additional regional power blocks in the rest of the world. This is because all of these actions create equal and opposite reactions (according to Newton’s and Hegel’s laws of science and laws of human behaviour). Each of these power blocks, creates opportunities and benefits for the members of the power block – but the formation of such power blocks, also creates disadvantages and generates fear among those who are not members of this block, and are not organized in another block.
Therefore, the outcome will be the creation of more regional blocks. Soon we will be hearing about calls for the African Union, the South American Union and the North American Union. This is a natural and inevitable result of the first such union – the European Union. So Putin has many reasons (and many justifiable arguments) for his Eurasian Union – and in turn he will provide many reasons (and justifiable arguments) for the rest of the world to do the same thing.
For those of us who are watching these things unfold in the light of biblical prophecy – we are perhaps watching the formation of the “10 kings” (10 political powers) mentioned in Revelation chapter 17. The prophecy says that these 10 kings are yet future, but that they will appear in the last days and reign for a short time with the “beast” – giving their political power to the support of the beast.
Interesting note: The Club of Rome (a Globalist think tank), has for many years advocated the formation of regional power blocks and in the 1960’s they published their vision of a better reorganized world – which included a list of precisely 10 such regional political unions.
In other news, preparations are thoroughly underway for WWIII in the Middle East. A Sept. 23rd report by Newsweek journalist Eli Lake reveals that Barack Obama secretly approved the transfer of 55 high-tech bunker busting bombs to Israel during the early days of his administration. The bombs identified by Lake are GBU-28 hard target penetrators— deadly projectiles that can be launched from Israel’s F-15 fighter jets and are capable of destroying heavily fortified targets beneath 100 feet of earth or 20 feet of concrete. However, it is widely thought that Iran having anticipated being the recipient of these bombs, has moved its uranium enrichment program under mountains that are beyond the capacity of GBU-28’s to reach.
Developments in the Syrian situation include the following: On October 4th a vote was taken by the UN Security Council on whether the UN would approve economic sanctions and military action against Syria. The proposal was defeated because Russia and China used their veto power against the proposal (the US ambassador stormed out of the meeting).
On the military front Russia has been supplying Syria with sophisticated missiles. Therefore, when the Turkish Foreign Minister appeared in Damascus recently with the latest warning from NATO, the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad’s response was, “If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than six hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv.” He also said that Syria would call on Hezbollah to do the same. In addition, according to Iranian sources, Assad also said, “All these events will happen in three hours, but in the second three hours, Iran will attack the U.S. warships in the Persian Gulf and the U.S. and European interests will be targeted simultaneously.” Assad also made the comment that he will set the Middle East on fire if NATO attacks Syria. In the meantime, Syrian government officials claim that NATO forces are training in Turkey to do precisely that – attack
