Obama blundering US, world closer to end times

It's not time yet for the Battle of Armageddon, but we can already see events being lined up for the world's largest religious war.

With the escalating Mideast wars that have gone on for thousands of years, it does not appear there will be any end to the brutality that radical Islamist jihadist fighters will do to reduce Israel and other religious groups to their deaths. It is no secret that the Iranians, Hamas and ISIS want the annihilation of Israel, and want the Western government and people destroyed. Their goal is for the Mideast to become an Islamic state.

Barack Obama continues to make decisions that in this critical time in human history spell disaster. From dismantling the missile shield in and around Ukraine; to withdrawing all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan with no support system; giving millions of dollars each year to the Palestinians, who support Hamas in attacking Israel daily; supporting the Muslim Brotherhood; supplying arms to the rebels in Syria that consequently are now in the hands of ISIS; releasing two years ago the very leader of the brutal terrorist group ISIS; and releasing five of the top al-Qaida from Guantanamo back to Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The president's inept decisions – along with his loyal Democrats and the controlling influence of his White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett, who has no military experience – will surely expedite us into future disasters. He is not a proactive president, but rather reactionary. He tends to turn a blind eye and not take action until the disaster strikes. The sad part is that he was voted into office for all the wrong reasons, totally unprepared for the position and behaves as if he has no interest in the position. We can only pray these same electors don't repeat the same history in 2014 and 2016.

We should pray for the terrorized people in the world struggling to live and practice their faith in a peaceful manner. May God help them all.
