Rumors of War: 2012

Okay, okay. No reason to go overboard. There is no need to think World War III is around the corner, despite what appears to be a blogosphere full of people seemingly hoping it is going to break out any day. Yes, really, that's what I see out there.

But, seriously, these are rough times, with many regional wildfire wars really to spark widespread chaos. 

Of course, I have always found the worse hidden costs of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are the suicides of our returning soldiers - and less documented - the suicides of subcontractors - and the covert mass violence situations from both. But more on that some other day.

Is it going to stop soon? Not if you listen to the prophets of the web....

General Wesley Clark has detailed his story, several times, of being told of the seven countries that would be invaded in his near future:

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.
6. Sudan ~ New constitution in 2005; South Sudan became independent in July 2011.
7. Iran ~ Israel is threatening to attack, any day now.

Then there are the Biblical quotes to which people point, often:

Revelation 6:4 ~

Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.

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:

Century 5: Quatrain 68

Dans le Danube & du Rhin viendra boire
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...

I remind myself of the Olympics. Didn't almost everyone think SOMETHING was going to happen during the Olympics?

“Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises.”

(Although there is the possibility that something bad really DID happen during the Olympics but it was SO bad that nobody is telling anybody about it.)

Or, the 'something' that did happen was a world wide Temple ceremony unmasked. That's something. In our face big.
Here's a show that goes with the 4 Horsemen:

I don't agree with all of "End of the Age.TV" teachings, but a show of his did help motivate constructing this show. You might find the connections interesting.
