Gog-Magog Alliance Strengthens, China's Global Political Shift, Top Russian, American And Polish Leaders Warn Of Nuclear War

Gog-Magog Players: Putin And Erdogan - A New Year And New Challenges In The EU Neighborhood

[We know that the primary axis in the Gog-Magog alliance consists of Russia-Iran-Turkey (along with parts of northern Africa) and on a daily basis we see this alliance strengthening]

In 2014, the EU discovered two major hurdles in its near abroad.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s assertiveness put a spanner in the works of the EU’s “Eastern Partnership”.
Meanwhile, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan publicly signaled that he doesn’t worry much about liberal democratic values – least of all when the EU is perceived as teaching “lessons” to his “New Turkey.”
It doesn’t take a crystal ball to guess that 2015 will see more of the same.

Despite many differences between these two important neighbours, it is quite obvious that, for their own reasons, both Putin and Erdogan will keep contradicting or chastising the EU as often as needed in their highly-charged populist political style, while engaging the EU for vital economic reasons.
Putin endeavored to recreate the marches of the defunct Soviet empire and to oppose “Western domination” of the world order.

With the “New Turkey” ushered in following the election of Erdogan as the country’s first directly-elected president last August, a distinct turn toward authoritarianism was taken, touching every segment of public life from the right of dissent to compulsory classic Ottoman language lessons and from women’s role in society to freedom of religion.
In both Russia and Turkey, the EU and the liberal values it carries have been designated as contrary to national interests.

In both countries, a modern-looking facade has been erected in front of authoritarian policies through a massive communication effort by government-controlled media and social media, even when it takes the form of outright faking of information (e.g. the Russian case on the downing of flight MH17) or embracing bold but shallow strategies (e.g. the “EU strategy” of Turkey).

I have been to China over the years more than a dozen times. I have spoken with people at all levels of policy-making, and one thing I have come to realize is that when Beijing makes a major policy change, they make it carefully and with great deliberation. And when they arrive at a new consensus, they execute it with remarkable effect on all levels. That is the secret to their thirty-year economic miracle. Now China’s top leadership has made such a policy decision. It will transform our world over the next decade

On November 29, 2014, a little-noted but highly significant meeting took place in Beijing as Washington was absorbed with its various attempts to cripple and ultimately destabilize Putin’s Russia. They held what was termed The Central Conference on Work Relating to Foreign Affairs. Xi Jinping, Chinese President and Chairman of the Central Military Commission, delivered what was called “An Important Address” there

Careful reading of the official Foreign Ministry statement on the meeting confirms it was indeed “important.” The central leadership of China has now made official a strategic global shift in geopolitical priorities in Chinese foreign policy.

No longer does China regard its relationship with the United Sates or even the EU as of highest priority. Rather they have defined a new grouping of priority countries in their carefully-deliberated geopolitical map. It includes Russia, as well as the entire BRICS rapidly-developing economies; it includes China’s Asian neighbors as well as Africa and other developing countries.

But perhaps most significant, in recent months, China has boldly moved an agenda to build alternative institutions to the US-controlled IMF and World Bank, a potentially devastating blow to US economic power if it succeeds. To counter the US attempt to economically isolate China in Asia through creation of a US Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), Beijing has announced its own Chinese vision of a Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific (FTAAP), an “all inclusive, all-win” trade deal that really promotes Asia-Pacific cooperation.

At present, what clearly emerges is China’s decision to make its relation with Putin’s Russia central to this new priority strategy. Despite decades of mistrust following the 1960 Sino-Soviet split, the two countries have begun a depth of cooperation unprecedented. The two great land powers of Eurasia are welding economic bonds that create the only potential “challenger” to future American global supremacy, as US foreign policy strategist, Zbigniew Brzezinski described it in his The Grand Chessboard in 1997.

At a time when Putin was engaged in a full-scale NATO economic sanctions war aimed at toppling his regime, China signed not one, but several gigantic energy deals with Russian state companies Gazprom and Rozneft, allowing Russia to offset the growing threat to her west European energy exports, a life-and-death issue for the Russian economy

Now, in the midst of Washington’s full-scale currency war against the Russian ruble, China has announced its readiness, if asked, to help its Russian partner. On December 20 amid a record fall in the Ruble to the dollar, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China will provide help if needed and is confident Russia can overcome its economic difficulties. At the same time Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng said expanding a currency swap between the two nations and making increased use of yuan for bilateral trade would have the greatest impact in aiding Russia

All of these moves, while fraught with danger, signal that China has deeply understood the Washington geopolitical game and the strategies of the neo-conservative US warhawks and, like Putin’s Russia, have little intention of bending their knee to what they see as a Washington global tyranny. The year 2015 shapes to be one of the most decisive and interesting in modern history.

Former Soviet leader and Nobel prize winner Mikhail Gorbachev warned today that the battle in Ukraine could result in a nuclear war:

“A war of this kind would unavoidably lead to a nuclear war,” the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize winner told Der Spiegel news magazine, according to excerpts released on Friday.
“We won’t survive the coming years if someone loses their nerve in this overheated situation,” added Gorbachev, 83. “This is not something I’m saying thoughtlessly. I am extremely concerned.”

One of America’s top experts on Russia – Steven Cohen – has warned that failure to negotiate a peace treaty in Ukraine could lead to nuclear war.
Steven Starr – a nuclear arms expert and senior scientist for Physicians for Social Responsibility –warns that proposed U.S. legislation would be a direct path towards nuclear war with Russia.
Former Polish president – and famed anti-communist activist – Lech Walesa also warned that the U.S. and Nato’s arming of Ukraine could lead to a nuclear war.
Leading American political activist Noam Chomsky agrees.
Australian doctor and Nobel prize winner Helen Caldicott warns:

The expansion of NATO to Russia’s borders is “very, very dangerous,” Caldicott said. “There is no way a war between the United States and Russia could start and not go nuclear. … The United States and Russia have enormous stockpiles of these weapons. Together they have 94 percent of all the 16,300 nuclear weapons in the world.”
“We are in a very fallible, very dangerous situation operated by mere mortals,” she warned. “The nuclear weapons, are sitting there, thousands of them. They are ready to be used.”

Caldicott strongly criticized Obama administration policymakers for their actions in forward positioning U.S. and NATO military units in countries of Eastern Europe in response to Russian support of breakaway separatists in the provinces of eastern Ukraine. On –, the U.S. government announced the deployment of the Ironhorse Brigade, an elite armored cavalry unit of the U.S. Army to the former Soviet republics of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, along the historic invasion route from the West to St. Petersburg.
“Do they really want a nuclear war with Russia?” she asked “The only war that you can have with Russia is a nuclear war. … You don’t provoke paranoid countries armed with nuclear weapons.”

And see thisthisthis and this.
Indeed, Eric Zuesse says that the risks are so high – and the American leaders so reckless – that Russia is preparing for an expected nuclear attack by the U.S.
Postscript:   In the 1987 book To Win a Nuclear War: The Pentagon’s Secret War Plans, one of the world’s leading physicists – Michio Kaku – revealed declassified plans for the U.S. to launch a first-strike nuclear war against Russia.  The forward was written by the former Attorney General of the United States, Ramsey Clarke.
In Towards a World War III Scenario, Michel Chossudovsky documents that the U.S. is so enamored with nuclear weapons that it has authorized low-level field commanders to use them in the heat of battle in their sole discretion … without any approval from civilian leaders.

Islamist militants in Syria are planning "mass casualty attacks" on Western targets, the head of British spy agency MI5 has warned, saying the deadly shooting in Paris was only a reminder of an ongoing threat.

Speaking of the broader threats, he said the number of "crude but potentially deadly plots" had increased, citing last year's attacks in Canada and Australia, and were particularly hard to detect.

These included "attempts to cause large scale loss of life, often by attacking transport systems or iconic targets".

But the MI5 chief added: "We know, for example, that a group of core Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria is planning mass casualty attacks against the West."

Scott do you still see the the revived roman empire being the predominant power during the tribulation? It just seems that currently the EU is very weak and the US, Russia and China seem to be the current world military powers. I know the rapture will be a game changer but how do you see things playing out assuming the rapture occurs in the very near term?

In my mind everything else is lined up (the stage is set)and I can't imagine the total world economic collapse occurring before the rapture. When it occurs the world will have entered through the door of Revelation chapter 6.

Scott said...

WV. (Hope you are doing well!). You are forgetting this: the Tribulation power isnt the revived roman empire but what it evolves into. Which is the ten kings. Now the AC will come from the ten kings. Imo it just all starts with the revived roman empire. One reason i am leaning towards the 10 kings being 10 world unions is that the ac would have the benefits of the US military combined with NATO and will get his power ftom these 10 kings

Scott said...

But it still morphs from the roman empire. I assume the power structure will stem from todays EU. if that makes any sense. Its interesting i read article last week that Putin is structuring the new eurasian union will be based on the EU.

WVBORN56 said...

Thanks Scott...good reminder on the ten kings possibility being the entire global population division. That does make sense. Russia/China could be one of the breakaway groups the AC has to reign back into the fold. I have read many articles stating the economies of Russia and China could be in trouble which would substantially weaken them as well.

I read so much in the news like you that it gets cloudy sometimes on what is real and what is propaganda and/or misinformation.

Anyway thanks again for keeping us up to date. The articles today alone are just mind boggling as they relate to the end times.

The headline this morning on Drudge screams end times prophecy as it tells of Jews fleeing France for Israel.

We live in amazing times!

Maranatha! Keep looking up! Our blessed hope is coming sooner than most think.

PS, yes I am doing well and thanks for asking. As a business guy in a labor intensive industry obamacare has my stomach in a bit of a knot but trusting the Lord to guide us through it all.

Scott said...

I was having those exact same thoughts as I was posting today's news...Its quite amazing how things are coming together. Rapidly....As I've said before - things I had to go to extreme lengths to prove, only ~10 years ago (globalization, world financial system, etc) now is accepted by the general public. It seems like yesterday. Same with the growth of the EU.....The alliances between Iran-Turkey-Russia....Russias rising to power again...China....Its just amazing to take a step back and look at the big picture

Scott, please correct me if I'm wrong! I see the revived Roman Empire in 3 ways. PHYSICAL, POLITICAL RELIGIOUS. All tired together yet separate. So we need to look for a lot of different things. It's needs to include at least a loosely united original Roman Empire which includes Turkey. And I find the most recent political weirdness and surprises from the current Pope intriguing. So a whole lot of pieces have to move quickly on the giant chess board to line things up.
2015 is going to be nuts, unbelievable and super intense. That much I know. And since my life is so fluid and tenuous anyway and I have so little too begin with, I have simply given up on trying to figure out where to go our what to do. I just trust that wherever I am, HE is with me and will make a way. Cuz he is good like that! ;)
I can't even fathom what this planet is going to look like this time next year But Jesus warned us didn't he? There was a time where it was hard to look up because so much was starting to go on down here it was hard to integrate it all. Now it's starting to seem like all we can do is pray and look up. And that trend is definitely going to continue. ;)
The end of this age is coming to a close. I can't believe of all the people that have existed and all the times that have passed on this planet, somehow we are all here and get to watch this come to pass. Am I really going to get to see the coming of Yeshuah? The reality of it is simply overwhelming.

The words "overwhelming" and "surreal" seem the best words to describe the current time. So much unraveling and at the same time coming together.

Ally, you said:

"And since my life is so fluid and tenuous anyway and I have so little too begin with, I have simply given up on trying to figure out where to go our what to do. I just trust that wherever I am, HE is with me and will make a way. Cuz he is good like that!"

Amen. Living fluidly right now is the way to live. I think of Corrie Ten Boon's words:

“Hold everything in your hands lightly, otherwise it hurts when God pries your fingers open.”

Now's the time for the Bride to let go of all that this world would have us hold on to. It's all sinking, stinking sand and going down quickly!

Thanks for your ongoing work of keeping the troops informed, Scott. God bless you and all the siblings here!
