The word of the LORD came to me: "Son of man, set your face against Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal; prophesy against him and say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. [Ezekiel 38:1-3]
I've long contended that Russia is using Iran to trigger World War Three. Iran's nuclear program, which has been developed with Moscow's assistance even though the Russians should seemingly fear Islamic extremists having the bomb as much as the West, seems more geared to provoke a fight with Israel than to actually complete a nuclear weapon. Furthermore, the seemingly insane, virulently anti-semitic Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was placed in power through sham elections in 2005 and again in 2009 to further stoke tensions with Israel.
However, to-date Israel has not taken the bait and triggered the all-out East-West war Russia has long been planning.
While we are past what I deemed to be seasonally the most dangerous point in 2010 for the Grand Supercycle crash and associated global war as I've been warning about for so long, it is still the often "black" month of October. What's more, with contentious congressional elections in November, the U.S. government is distracted and we are strategically vulnerable if Russia is planning its surprise attack this year.
Given that mass mood may be reaching an utterly irrational extreme with the DJIA trading above the psychologically important 11,000 mark, one should remain alert. On this score, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's current visit to Lebanon bears watching:
Is President "Imanutjob" looking to pick a fight with the Jewish state using Iran's Lebanon proxy state?
Let's hope and pray not because, if so, there will be very limited time to bug-out before the missiles fly.
