1. Iraq √
2. Syria ~ UN/NATO members are thinking about getting involved in the current civil war.
3. Lebanon ~ ?
4. Libya √
5. Somalia ~ Backed by Kenyan troops, on August 20, 2012, the Federal Parliament of Somalia was inaugurated.
7. Iran ~ Israel is threatening to attack, any day now.
Then there are the Biblical quotes to which people point, often:
Revelation 6:4 ~
Matthew 26:4 ~
And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Others have had other ideas:
Le grand Chameau, ne s'en repentira:
Trembler du Rosne, & plus fort ceux de Loire
Et pres des Alpes Coq le ruinera.
In the Danube and of the Rhine will come to drink
The great Camel, not repenting it:
Those of the Rhône to tremble, and much more so
those of the Loire,
and near the Alps the Cock will ruin him.
Perhaps it is not that bad, but certainly, all the indicators are that...
