The New American: “Members of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Liberty Caucus have become the sole congressional voice openly speaking out against President Obama’s proposed third war in Iraq.
The Washington Post noted on September 11 that “A group of younger libertarian doves sounded unhappy with their colleagues’ embrace of the president’s push for military action, and wondered aloud whether House Republicans were rushing to rally behind a campaign that could turn sour.”
The anti-war Left has faded into insignificance since the election of a president from the Democratic Party, but the anti-war Right has become more vocal and numerous since its halcyon days of the lone calls by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) against war in Iraq.”
Opinion: It began in Libya. The Obama administration’s decision to lead from behind was a banner to despots and dictators that the time is right to rise up.
Now the West wants an end to war. The US and EU have no interest in boots on the ground despite their citizens being slaughtered on video. The nations being run by dictators know that and are exploiting weakness.
It is not time for an end to war. Matthew 24:6 tells us that wars and rumors of wars will be like birth pangs, increasing in frequency and intensity right up to the third world war.
Isaiah 2:1-3 gives an account of the days after the war of Armageddon:
“Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the Lord’s house (Temple) Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob; He (Jesus) will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths. For out of Zion (Israel) shall go forth the law, And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between the nations (final judgment, sheep and goat nations), And rebuke many people; (Here is the end of war) “… They shall beat their swords into plowshares, And their spears into pruning hooks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, Neither shall they learn war anymore.”
