In the news:

Once again, Iran makes a surprising announcement under the category of "War Preparations" and "Wars and rumors of war":

World panics over Iran's new 'super' missiles

Iran has made yet another announcement about the development of a new type of weapon. The Iranian administration claimed that it was going to launch the mass production of new ballistic missiles.

According to Chief Commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Brigadier General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the missiles, called the Persian Gulf, develop the speed of 3,675 kilometers an hour and strike targets at a range of 300 kilometers. Jafari also stated, in a classic Iranian manner, that the new missile was unreachable for enemies.

This is undoubtedly a huge success for the Islamic Republic, and it makes one recollect Iran’s previous achievements in the field of defense. Indeed, Teheran has achieved a lot at this point. It has supposedly started building own destroyers and frigates, not to mention state-of-the-art aircraft and air defense systems.

What is more, Iran releases statements about the development of new types of arms on a regular basis. Iranian officials persistently claim that all of their systems surpass all foreign analogues in all respects.

The Gog-MaGog alliance is continuing to make preparations for war. While the article points out the fact that these Iranian weapons (despite the Iranian hype) are actually clones of older weapons from China and Russia:

Most of the arms, which the Iranians advertise, have been ripped off from China, and China, as it is well-known, makes copies of Russian weapons. The quality of Chinese rip-offs is a lot lower than that of Russian weapons, and one can only imagine what the Iranians produced.

The reality doesn't matter, What matters, prophetically, is what Iran believes that their capabilities are, and does Iran believe that they are sufficiently prepared to participate in a full-scale attack on Israel. That is what really matters, and I believe that they do believe they are prepared for such a battle.

That turns our attention back to Egypt and current developments there:

Is Egypt experiencing a silent military coup?

A feeling of jubilation, of history in the making, envelops all. But the big questions now begin to drift in the air, and the euphoria is expected to dissipate.

Suleiman announced on Saturday that all of the President's responsibilities have been passed on to the High Council of the Egyptian armed forces. This was in contradiction to remarks about the transfer of power to the Vice-President made by Mubarak and Suleiman himself on Thursday.

An Egyptian News Agency reported that the Friday announcement that the army is taking over the powers of the president came after the army gave Mubarak an ultimatum to leave. Are we witnessing a silent military coup? It's not clear.

Another issue which remains unclear is the relationship between the army council, headed by Defense Minster Hussein Tantawi, and the man who is supposedly the number two man in the civilian government, Vice-President Omar Suleiman.

Transferring power from the president to the army high council in essence annuls the constitution. The army may announce the dissolution of parliament even on Saturday. The question is when, if ever, new elections will take place, and what political parties will take part? Or, in other words, are we looking at a new army junta, or a temporary stage preparing the way for democracy?

The fact is, no one really knows. My bet is that regardless of who assumes power in Egypt, they will be anti-Israel and will break the current treaty. We shall see.

Debka weighs in on the implications for Israel:

Israel's military caught unready for Sinai front

Thirty-two years of peace with Egypt leave Israel militarily unprepared for the unknown and unexpected on their 270-kilometer long southern border: the current generation of Israeli combatants and commanders has no experience of desert combat, its armor is tailored for operation on its most hostile fronts: Iran, Lebanon's Hizballah and Syria; it is short of intelligence on the Egyptian army and its commanders and, above all, no clue to the new rulers' intentions regarding Cairo's future relations with Israel and security on their Sinai border.

This article takes a look at the internal power struggle:

Israel is counting on Gen. Omar Suleiman - overlord of Egypt's intelligence branches and for eight days, Mubarak's Vice President - to keep faith after many years of close cooperation in safeguarding the peace relationship. Suleiman is one of the top three members of the High Army Council now ruling Egypt, alongside Defense Minister Field Marshal Mohammed Tantawi and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Sami Al-Anan.

So it looks like a power struggle between Suleiman and Defense Minister Mohammed Tantawi. Right now, with the backing of the military, Tantawi seems to have the edge. What does this mean for Israel?

Israel may be barking up the wrong tree. When Suleiman was elevated to VP, Jerusalem hoped he would come out of the Egyptian uprising as the coming man. Friday, Mubarak's resignation left him stripped of his new title.

Suleiman and Tantawi have long been rivals

Since Tantawi is no fan of Israel, Suleiman may decide to promote his own chances by avoiding being seen as overly pro-Israeli or pro-American. Jerusalem may therefore find a closed door when seeking him out.

Meanwhile, Iran lurks in the shadows, and seeking to manipulate this entire scenario to their advantage. How predictable:

Indeed while a military coup was in progress in the Egyptian capital, Iran, Hamas and Al Qaeda's Middle East networks were fully engaged in violently reducing the Egyptian presence outside the southern Sharm el-Sheik pocket and beginning a process of annexation to the Gaza Strip starting in North Sinai. This is part of Iran's new strategy, seized on during the upsets in Cairo, to expand the Hamas state and shift the crux of Palestinian governance from Ramallah to Gaza City.

While this was going on, Hamas and Al Qaeda terrorists along with drug and human traffickers were free to infiltrate Israel, using the flow of thousands of illegal job-seekers smuggled across the lawless Sinai border.

None of this is good for Israel, as we see:

The Netanyahu government in Jerusalem must therefore think fast and make quick decisions about Sinai. Will the military regime in Cairo take action to bring Sinai under control? Or will Israel be reduced to sending drones or special forces across the border for covert action to cut down the threats building up to its security?

Our military sources note that Field Marshall Tantawi has never attached much strategic importance to the Sinai Peninsula, which is why Mubarak transferred responsibility for its security from the army to Suleiman. Its reversion to the army and the field marshal would be bad news for Israel and its future relations with Egypt.


On a separate news front (and with the usual caveat: I don't endorse this site, nor every bit of news/commentary contained within for a variety of reasons - but they do have some interesting commentary from time to time. In the spirit of "not throwing out the baby with the bathwater", I post this because I agree with this commentary - one that is hard to find elsewhere):

Globalists Push SDRs as World Reserve Currency

Once again the IMF is calling for SDRs, short for Special Drawing Rights, to replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency

“Over time, there may also be a role for the SDR to contribute to a more stable international monetary system,” said Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the IMF. He said there are some “technical hurdles” involved with SDRs, but he believes they could help correct global imbalances and shore up the global financial system.

There it is again, the repeated mantra "global financial system".

In addition to creating a globalist fiat currency controlled by the financial elite and their central banks, the IMF is proposing the creation of SDR-denominated bonds, which would reduce the use of U.S. Treasuries if implemented.

Following the onset of the engineered global financial crisis in 2008, the so-called BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India and China – led primarily by Russia and China, have called for dumping the dollar and moving into a global currency scheme. The SDR facility stands ready.

There it is again "globalist fiat currency".

But what about an "engineered global financial crisis"? Isn't that just a little too "conspiratorial"?

Well, actually, the answer is no - does anyone recall the video of George Soros announcing that this was indeed engineered in order to bring about the "slow" collapse of the U.S. dollar (see link below)?

The IMF and the globalists plan to elevate China and undermine the United States.

Early in 2009, China issued an aggressive call to dump the dollar and move into SDRs. “The role of the SDR has not been put into full play due to limitations on its allocation and the scope of its uses. However, it serves as the light in the tunnel for the reform of the international monetary system,” said Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China.

In June, the United Nations called for abandoning the U.S. dollar as the main global reserve currency, saying it has been unable to safeguard value.

“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way,” said Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Same thing can be said for economics. The banksters have purposely attacked the dollar in order to move us into a globalist world currency.

Again, this can't be surprising - Soros made it clear that such actions were planned and are now progressing according to plan (see link provided at the bottom of the page).

Federal Reserve operative and current U.S. Treasury boss Tim Geithner gave the SDR concept a nod during the globalist G20 confab in London. During the meeting, it was announced that the IMF would have a trillion dollars allocated to its coffers and an increase in the SDR facility of $250 billion.

Keynes approach gained renewed favor among establishment economists and central banksters after the engineered financial crisis.

The Federal Reserve is facilitating the move into a world currency controlled by the IMF and the globalist central banks by quantitative easing, that is to say devaluing the U.S. dollar by cranking up the printing press.

If there is any doubt about this being a planned event, as led by Mr Soros, see the link below:

George Soros: The United States Must Stop Resisting The Orderly Decline of the Dollar

This plan will be completed during the Tribulation, as the antichrist gains power and control.

What better way to control people - than through finances?

We're rapidly moving into a world in which a single individual will gain complete power - and as mentioned so many times - we are watching that road being paved.

Chile hit by powerful earthquake
A 6.8-magnitude earthquake has struck central Chile, in the region that was hit by a huge quake and tsunami in February last year.
Thousands of people fled to higher ground but there have been no reports of deaths or serious damage.
In the following hours two smaller quakes struck in the same area.
President Sebastian Pinera praised Chileans for responding quickly, saying they had learned the lessons of last year's quake and were better prepared.
"Experts and seismological centres have said that we can expect aftershocks up to five years after the earthquake of 27 February [2010]," the president warned.
The epicentre of Friday's earthquake, which hit at 2005GMT, was under the Pacific Ocean, about 45km (30 miles) north of Concepcion.
Two smaller quakes over the next five hours struck slightly nearer to the city.

I somehow missed this (wow, you go one day w/o checking the earthquake map.....:)

I'm interested in this quake, but also any other activity - usually when there is a big one like this, you'll notice thr ROW is active.

Scott, I have thought for some time now that we will be here to witness THE incredible, indescribable event when Israel's enemies finally launch their attack, only to be thwarted by God. I of course may be wrong as to which theater we will be seated in to witness such a dramatic unfolding of events. ;-)


Scott said...

We may well see this. Its definitely possibe IMO. IF we do, then we will see hand of God at work, and that will definitely be a time to get on our knees and pray. And to celebrate Israel's victory, and really, God's victory against those who are attempting to destroy Israel - directly going against God's word and His warnings. Warnings which are clear as a bell.

We'll see - but I have a feeling - if we are here to witness this - people (well, some people) will develop a keen interest in prophecy ...

Hello Scott

Remember the Icelandic Volcano last summer? They were concerned it would trigger off a more dangerous one nearby - well its beginning to froth with lot's of quakes to boot.

Hello Scott

"Iran has made yet another announcement about the development of a new type of weapon. The Iranian administration claimed that it was going to launch the mass production of new ballistic missiles".

You know that Stuxnet Iran was infected with? Well it’s in their new missiles, and when they fire them the worm turns and returns from whence it came. Betcha!

Hello Scott

Sorry to deluge you in comments, but I couldn’t believe my ears when BBC reported that two horses in the Paddock at Newbury dropped down dead today!

They think they were electrocuted from the GROUND? How come the handlers weren’t killed? How odd is that?

Scott said...

That volcano is ready to explode again? I think I recall having read that recently. Yea - and it could trigger earthquakes as well - as you say. Things are certainly getting interesting right now.

I hadn't considered that, but I would indeed bet that the worm could have affected those systems as well. Very interesting. But it still makes me nervous.

Horses dead. Was there some kind of storm, with lightening?

Scott, blueprints for the Third Temple have been released and you can take a virtual tour of it here:

Some of the modern amenities for the new temple include underground parking, internet access, wireless communication system, data storage, and air conditioning to name a few. It's everything the False Shepherd needs to fulfill his plans.

Hello Scott

The Volcano that erupted in 2010 was Ejafjallajokull.

Nearby is an even bigger and more dangerous Volcano, Bárdarbunga, which is the second biggest in Iceland.

In the past, it has been stirred into action by the smaller one. They were watching it carefully in 2010, but it didn’t ‘blow’.

NOW, it is getting dangerous, causing lots of quakes, the lava is rising and concern is high. They say the problem with ash will be much worse than in 2010.

Icelandic volcano 'set to erupt'
Scientists in Iceland are warning that another volcano looks set to erupt and threatening to spew-out a pall of dust that would dwarf last year's event…


Expected Imminently said...

Hello Scott
There was no storm.

A girl leading one horse felt a tingling in her hands – no human was affected. Four horses were ‘struck’, two survived, one is traumatized and two were killed on the spot.

It is suspected they were electrocuted, not from lightening, but from the ground they were walking on. Obviously their shoes being metal must have something to do with it?

The postmortem will clarify, and the Electricity Company are looking into underground cables.

So far the conspiracy theorists are claiming a strike from a rogue satellite. As soon as I see the PM results I will let you know.

I was wondering about the sudden deaths of other animals; IF something is happening to the earth and that’s how they died? Only a wild guess.

12 Feb 2011

A packed parade ring prior to racing on one of the biggest days in the jumping calendar saw Fenix Two and Marching Song collapse to the ground.

Eyewitnesses said they feared the horses had been electrocuted.
Jockey Nick Scholfield, who was to have ridden Marching Song, said: "I've never seen anything like it before in my life. I got on him and when we walked onto the grass his legs went like jelly and he fell to the ground."

Dan Skelton, assistant to trainer Paul Nicholls, who trained the eventual winner Al Ferof, said it was as if the horses were having a fit. I've seen horses have heart attacks before, but this was different. They seemed petrified."
According to another eyewitness one of the two stricken horses let out an horrific noise soon after collapsing.

Bewildered and shocked racegoers did not know where to turn as tarpaulins were dragged into the parade ring to cover the two dead horses.

Confusion reigned as Newbury officials attempted to discover the source of the incident. The first race, the novices hurdle, was run 25 minutes late with seven runners instead of the 10 declared.

Apart from the two dead horses, Kid Cassidy was withdrawn by his trainer Nicky Henderson.
A visibly shocked Henderson said: "My horse has been very, very lucky. I have never seen anything like this on a racecourse before. It is pure speculation but it seems as if there has been an electrical incident. The post-mortems will show exactly what happened.

"My horse went down behind and my daughter called out that he had fallen on the ground. He went to post earlier than the others but AP (McCoy, his partner), said he was like a bolted rabbit going down."
All horses who competed in the first race were inspected by veterinary officers at the start. Al Ferof, ridden by Harry Skelton, came home a very easy winner.
Approximately 15 minutes after horses returned to the makeshift paddock, the old Pre-parade ring, an official announcement told racegoers that the meeting had been abandoned.
Security officers waved people away from the grassy areas around the paddock and Pre-parade ring and barriers were put up to stop racegoers walking in that area.

Scott said...

I wonder what really happened????

It makes me wonder how a spontaneous "electrical surge" could have happened (?) -

What do you think really happened? Do you agree that this could have been some sort of electrical problem?

How bizarre!

Expected Imminently said...

Hello Scott

Bizarre indeed! Why weren't the Jockey's and the handlers affected? Why did it happen with those four during that race? Newbury is a very busy event, why hadn't the previous races been affected?

A discharge can occur from overhead cables - but there were none.
Naturally, a 'leader' comes up from the ground causing a discharge from cloud to meet with it through the air as lightening. No thunder around, wrong time of the year for it anyway.

If underground cables are present, surely they are insulated?

It does sound like an electric shock. One horse reared up onto it's back legs and went rigid in that position. The owner said he had never seen anything like it.

Very strange. As I said, I will keep my eyes peeled for results and let you know.
God bless

Hello Scott

Just found this written report from T.V's Sky News.

Horses 'Electrocuted' At Newbury Races

UK, Sunday February 13, 2011

An investigation is continuing into why two horses dropped dead in the parade ring at Newbury racecourse.

The animals, Fenix Two and Marching Song, both started to wobble and then collapsed in front of punters before the first race.
Early reports indicated the horses died from an electric shock, but a post-mortem will be carried out.

Other horses were seen to be in distress at the parade ring, many people there also said they felt a tingling sensation in the area near where the horses died.

Newbury Racecourse's managing director Stephen Higgins told Sky News: "We've had the local electricity board here establishing whether there is a cable there and whether it’s been disturbed, if there is a cable there it’s been dormant for more than 30 years and we need to establish those facts."

No new work has taken place at the racecourse recently and investigators have been working to establish exactly what caused the distressing incident.
Racing was immediately abandoned for the day.

A section of electrical cable has been removed from the paddock area of Newbury Racecourse after two horses suddenly collapsed and died on Saturday.

Racegoers were left distraught after the "unprecedented event" in which the racehorses were apparently electrocuted.

The cable will be inspected by Southern Electric Power Distribution, who said their on-site investigations had revealed there was no danger to the public

Monday 14th February

The results of the post-mortem examinations into the two horses who died following an incident in the parade ring at Newbury on Saturday will NOT be revealed on Monday...

Paul Struthers, head of communications for the British Horseracing Authority, said: "We can confirm that we will not be in a position to announce the results of the post-mortem examinations today. Our investigation, which is running in tandem with the investigation being undertaken by Newbury Racecourse and Southern Electric Power Distribution, has a number of other aspects.

"It is therefore only right and proper that we do not make any announcement until we have received and thoroughly reviewed the results from the post-mortem and other analysis..."
