A Bad Moon Rising

A divided and increasingly volatile Europe in crisis is headed back into recession.

The Middle East is already on fire and poised to get worse, a lot worse if/when Israel makes its move on Iran. Israel is already at war with Hamas in Gaza and the possibility of re-occupation looms. Syria is already burning with fighting spilling into Turkey and Israel. Meanwhile, an increasingly cash strapped but aggressive Egypt is looking to make its mark.

Meanwhile, America has chosen to abdicate its role in the world while it gleefully re-elects the man driving it over the fiscal cliff. A few more months or years and America will be unable, even if it were willing, to stop the carnage that is almost certainly coming.

All this while even the likes of Angela Merkel acknowledge that Christianity is the most persecuted religion in the world and for stating the obvious she has been criticized.

It's coming folks, it is coming. All it will take is one Archduke Ferdinand moment and the whole pile of kindle will roar. I don't know what or when it will be. But it is coming.

Have a nice weekend.

*subhead*It's coming folk.*subhead*

  1. Glad to see you've climbed out of your funk and are now settled into a malaise...

  2. You forgot to add the NHL strike to the list. We're a peaceful people up here in Canada, but we have our breaking point too. Things might get interesting here when the Winter Classic doesn't happen, that's all I'm saying.

  4. Having been trained as an historian, I loved the Archduke Ferdinand comment.

  6. I'm glad I'm not the only one who senses the drum beat of war on the horizon.

  9. Well, if the manure hits the rotating blades in the Middle East, I hope the Samson option isn't put into effect!

  10. I will say this. I think we are in the midst of a great chastisement. It's not the end of world of course, because our Blessed Lord said that we will "hear of wars and rumors of wars" and that it wouldn't be the end yet for "such things must happen" to qoute Matthew 24:6. So I think it's silly to say it's the end of the world. NOT YET!

  11. I think Benghazi was the Archduke Ferdinand moment. My question is will any of our elected officials have the stones to throw the Traitor in Chief in Jail?
