Panetta and R2P to Usher in the American Fall
Leon Panetta wasted no time once he became the US Defense Secretary advancing the Responsibility to Protect Doctrine and simultaneously moving forward with massive defense cuts meant to neuter our military defenses and leave America weak and vulnerable on the international battle field.
He shares a vision with Barack Obama of our military morphing from a true defense force into more of an international police force under the United Nations through R2P. Our nuclear capabilities will be massively cut back in favor of stronger ground, air and naval forces.
Below, we can see that the doctrine has survived its first test run:
From The US Department of Defense:
MONTEREY, Calif., Aug. 23, 2011 – Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta today called U.S. support for the NATO mission that’s helping opposition forces make progress against Moammar Gadhafi’s regime Libya an example of the international cooperation that will be critical in the future.
“It is a good indication of the kind of partnership and alliances that we need to have for the future if we are going to deal with the threats that we confront in today’s world,” Panetta told students during addresses at both the Naval Postgraduate School and Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center.
And more ominously, we see this quote:
The Arab Spring, the name given to recent revolutions for democracy throughout the Middle East, is bringing change and in many cases, turmoil to the region, Panetta said. But it also offers “a chance to make that part of the world a better region, one that enjoys some of the values and some of the reforms and some of the political opportunities that we have in this country,” he said.
Savor that last paragraph for a minute. The Arab Spring was something this administration wanted. It was meant to begin a worldwide leveling of the political playing field so that a global government could assume the reins of power, with a chosen few at the helm.
That makes one wonder - was it envisioned that the most radical Islamic groups would assume power in these regions?
Attacking Libya was unconstitutional, period. We attacked a country with no provocation, whose brutal reign pales in comparison with Iran’s evil empire and others in the Middle East. Libya was a military R2P testing ground and Obama and Panetta have found it very good indeed for their purposes.
Although the MSM is blacking out news on Yemen, we are getting involved there as well:
But wait, there’s more! Yep, we are embroiled in another conflict in Yemen. What’s that you say? You hadn’t heard? What’s the media good for? Absolutely nothing!
From The Daily Bell:
The US is now involved in almost innumerable wars in the Middle East, but most have been reported in one way or another. This one has not been fully vetted as it continues to expand. Unconstitutional, secretive and expanding in scope and violence, it includes the massive, violent projection of US naval, air and Special Forces into parts of Yemen.
It is no skirmish but a coordinated, daily attack against hostile forces that supposedly include a number of “al Qaeda” (whatever they are) protected by local tribesman in the south of Yemen who have rebelled against President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s regime. It involves considerable military effort and expenditure of what must be a US task force that includes sea, air and land power.
So, now you can add Yemen to the list of conflicts the US is up to its eyeballs in, along with Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan and Syria. Just how long do you think we can do this?
Now we turn back to Israel:
And for dessert this Fall, Israel. If the UN gives Palestine its own state, and I believe they will, Obama will stand with the UN, for the good of the planet don’tcha know. Americans will not stand with their government on this. It’s obvious to me that Obama will use R2P to try and eradicate Israel. Israel will fight back – every American needs to decide, and now, where they stand on this. I stand with Israel.
The breadth and depth of Obama’s lawlessness is not only the height of arrogance, it is staggering in its evil scope. No one is stopping him. No voice is rising above his. If we don’t stop this soon, we will lose to a totalitarian regime and a new world order. Congress is toothless and the Constitution is being bypassed. As evil grows in America and around the globe, I keep wondering when will Americans stand up and say this must stop?
Responsibility to Protect. This sounds exactly like a mantra that we will hear more and more in the coming months - and when it involves Israel, it can be referred to as something that "works", based on the Libya experience.
When you start hearing our political leaders using this terminology when discussing the situation in Israel - then we will know that we have reached a stage of prophetic developments in which the beginning of the Tribulation is very close. But not as close as the gathering of the Church Saints.
As they say "When you begin to see Christmas decorations being put up, you'll know that Thanksgiving is near".
So be it. When we see the Tribulation approaching, we know that the Rapture of the Church is near.
