Former tough guy Clint Eastwood one of 80 prominent Republicans to support gay marriage Thursday, Mar 7 2013 

Former western movie hero Clint Eastwood reportedly has signed a legal brief requesting the US supreme court to legalize homosexual marriages. The legal brief is said to have the name of eighty prominent Republican leaders.

This sort of thing was prophesied about how things would be in the latter days.

Jeremiah 23:14  Also I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of JerUSAlem: They commit adultery and walk in lies; They also strengthen the hands of evildoers, So that no one turns back from his wickedness. All of them are like Sodom to Me, And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.

Mark 6:11  “And whoever will not receive you nor hear you, when you depart from there, shake off the dust under your feet as a testimony against them. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!”

The apostle Paul tells us that homosexuals will not enter into the kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,

1 Corinthians 6:10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

 Revelation 21:8  “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

Marriage guidance … Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood backs gay marriage

Clint Eastwood lent his support to the fight for gay marriage, adding his name to a legal brief that calls on the US supreme court to legalize same-sex unions. The Oscar-winning film-maker and actor made an eccentric appearance at last year’s Republican national convention, berating an empty chair to the various amusement and bemusement of the gathered dignitaries. He now joins a breakaway group of moderate Republicans that threatens to expose a split within the party.

Russian general says USA to have same fate as USSR Tuesday, Oct 2 2012 

A retired Russian military general says that the Global Mafia controls the United States. He says that the US has 5% of the world’s population yet it uses 50% of the world’s energy and that the Global Mafia deems that to be a problem.

He says that the national politicians make internal and external policy decisions for the United States; but they are amateurs compared to the ones in the Global Mafia.

The Global Mafia, according to the General, is preparing for the United States exactly the same fate that the Soviet Union had twenty plus years ago – dissolution.

This video seems to tell about what has been foretold in the Book of Revelation.

Revelation 18:19  They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

US Navy has no defense against Russian supersonic anti-ship missile Thursday, Dec 29 2011 

Russia, and now maybe Iran, has got an anti-ship missile called the “Sizzler” (SS-N-27 Sizzler called “Klub” missile by the Russians) for which the US Navy has no defense.

The Sizzler or Klub missile is a multi-stage missile that flies just above the water. It flies at a subsonic speed until it reaches the range of the enemy ship’s radar, which reportedly is about 30 to 40 miles. The part with the warhead then separates. It accelerates to a supersonic speed of Mach 2.9 and zig-zags toward the target.

It’s radar is turned off making it hard to spot. Three seconds before striking the target the Sizzler turns its radar back on to home in on the target.

Russian Supersonic Klub Anti-Ship Missile

According to a year 2007 article on Bloomberg dot com the US Navy had no defense against the Sizzler missile at that time: “Navy Lacks Plan to Defend Against `Sizzler’ Missile”

As of today’s date it appears that the US Navy still does not have a defense against the supersonic anti-ship missile.

The way to develop a defense against such a weapon is to develop a similar weapon and then find a way to defeat  the similar weapon. The US Navy is doing just that. It’s called the MSST (Multi-Stage Supersonic Target). However, the prototype will not be ready until the year 2014 according to the Janes dot com web site.

Excerpts from Janes dot com:

The MSST (Multi-Stage Supersonic Target is being developed to simulate the threat of next-generation surface to surface anti-ship cruise missiles – such as the Novator 34M-54E Klub, for example (SS-N-27, NATO reporting name ‘Sizzler’) – that cruise at subsonic speeds, initiate a separation, then make a supersonic dash to their intended target.

A final RFP (request for proposals) was issued in November 2007 and, competing with a bid from a Northrop Grumman/Orbital Sciences team, ATK was awarded a four-year, $97 million development contract by US Naval Air Systems Command (Navair) in early September 2008.

Two evaluation and seven development ZGQM-173A prototypes are to be built under this contract, with a first flight expected in the second quarter of 2011. Development completion is due by October 2012, after which a production decision will be taken with a view to service entry in 2014.

So the US government is provoking Iran and Russia. The US Navy has got fleets of ships in the Persian Gulf region where the enemy has got weapons for which there is no defense.

A scenario like the one described above is a sure way to get your navy sunk. You wonder what the US government could be thinking.

Iran photographs USS John Stennis in the Persian Gulf Thursday, Dec 29 2011 

Things are getting more interesting by the day.

The Iranian military says that it has photographed a US aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf region. It was probably the USS John C. Stennis. A news report says that the supercarrier has been re-assigned to the Persian Gulf region.

Iran boasts of surveillance of U.S. aircraft carrier as tensions with Tehran continue to rise

Iran has ramped up its war of words with the U.S. – by revealing it filmed and photographed one of its aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf.

Tensions between the two countries are escalating on an almost daily basis over Iran’s ongoing 10-day navy drill near the strategic Strait of Hormuz – the passageway for one-sixth of the world’s oil supply.

Official IRNA news agency reported today that a surveillance plane obtained the footage in what has been seen as a clear indication that Iran wants to cast its navy as having a powerful role in the region’s waters. Read report on UK Daily Mail.

USS Stennis closes out one war, moves to another

BREMERTON – USS John C. Stennis sailors didn’t get much time to celebrate the end of the Iraq War before refocusing on other hostilities in the region.

The Bremerton-based aircraft carrier launched the final sortie into Iraq on Dec. 18, then headed out of the Persian Gulf toward the Arabian Sea where it can better support troops fighting in Afghanistan.

To get there, it had to sail through the narrow Strait of Hormuz, which Iran’s navy chief blustered Wednesday his country could easily close and cut off transport of one-third of the world’s oil tanker traffic.

Iran’s Navy also is in the midst of a 10-day drill in international waters near the oil route, involving submarines, missile drills, torpedoes and drones, according to The Associated Press. Read rest of the report.

U.S. Navy counters Iran’s war games with threats of its own Wednesday, Dec 28 2011 

The  United States Navy has issued a statement saying that it will not tolerate any interference with shipping through the Strait of Hormuz according to a Reuters report.

U.S. Fifth Fleet says won’t allow disruption in Hormuz

The U.S. Fifth Fleet said on Wednesday it will not allow any disruption of traffic in the Strait of Hormuz, after Iran threatened to stop ships moving through the strategic oil route.

“The free flow of goods and services through the Strait of Hormuz is vital to regional and global prosperity,” a spokesperson for the Bahrain-based fleet said in a written response to queries from Reuters about the possibility of Iran trying to close the waterway.

“Anyone who threatens to disrupt freedom of navigation in an international strait is clearly outside the community of nations; any disruption will not be tolerated.”

Asked whether it was taking specific measures in response to the threat to close the Strait, the fleet said it “maintains a robust presence in the region to deter or counter destabilizing activities,” without providing further detail. Read report on Reuters.

Russia, China have economic ties with Iran; West feels Iranian oil belongs to them Tuesday, Dec 27 2011 

You may remember back in 1979 there was a coup in Iran. The Iranians overthrew the Shah of Iran, who was a puppet for the US. The Western oil companies, which had developed the petroleum industry in Iran, were kicked out of Iran when the Shah fell.

One of the commentators in the video says that the American oil companies feel that the Iranian oil still belongs to them. That is the impetus for the hostility towards Iran.

The video explains the commercial, and possible military, ties between Russia and China, and Iran.

Global military buildup for World War III Sunday, Dec 25 2011 

In this video by Global Research TV the host James Corbett analyzes conflicts around the globe. One of the commentators in the video, Michael Chossodovsky, says that the US Congress has declared the use of tactical nuclear weapons on the battlefield in a likely conflict with Iran as safe for the surrounding population.

.
From the video:
.
“The world’s attention is increasingly focused on Syria and Iran as the region continues to move toward military confrontation.

Less noticed, however, is that the pieces are being put into place for a truly global conflict, with military buildup taking place in every region and threatening to draw in all of the world’s major powers.”

The US military says they are ready for a pre-emptive attack against Iran Wednesday, Dec 21 2011 

We are one step closer to an all out war. A war that probably will result in World War III.

Those in charge of the US military, General Martin Dempsey and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, say that they are ready to launch a a pre-emptive strike on Iran.

That would be a serious mistake. Iran has a population of 78 million persons. It produces its own warplanes, submarines, and tanks. It also has Russian made submarines.

Iran has a fleet of F-4 and F-14 fighter planes that it got from the US back in the 1970’s decade. Those planes were made with old technology. But they can still shoot missiles at targets.

But the wild card is North Korea. As soon as the US becomes embroiled in a war with Iran North Korea may launch a military strike against South Korea. North Korea has nuclear ICBMs that can reach the North American continent.

Bible Times Today earlier made a blog entry about North Korea’s military capabilities.

N. Korean leader Kim Jong Ill dies, South Korea braces for possible invation

The US cannot defeat the entire world. The prophet Obadiah tells us what is going to happen:

Obadiah 1:2 Behold, I have made thee small among the heathen: thou art greatly despised.

Obadiah 1:1:3 The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee, thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?

Obadiah 1:1:4 Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.

US military ‘ready to engage in a conflict with Iran’

America’s most senior military official has indicated that the country is ready to engage in a conflict with Iran, if President Barack Obama were to give the signal.

General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, said that the US military had reached a point where they were ready to execute force against Iran if necessary.

Gen Dempsey said he had been quietly leading behind the scenes preparations for an attack against Tehran but said a war with the nation would be a “tragedy”.

“My biggest worry is that it may miscalculate our resolve. Any miscalculation could mean that we are drawn into conflict and that would be a tragedy for the region and the world,” he said. Read report on UK Telegraph.

Panetta: Iran will not be allowed nukes

The U.S. Secretary of Defense said Monday night that Iran will not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon. In an interview, Leon Panetta, said despite the efforts to disrupt the Iranian nuclear program, the Iranians have reached a point where they can assemble a bomb in a year or potentially less.

Russia is bolstering its intercontinental ballistic missile capability Wednesday, Dec 21 2011 

Russia is countering the US’s plans to build a missile defense system in eastern Poland. The Russian government says that they are building a 100-ton missile to replace their previous truck mounted ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile).

Bible Times Today made two previous blog entries regarding the eastern Europe missile defense shield.

Russian Topol Missile

Not content to sit idly by while the U.S. parks a sophisticated missile defense system in Europe, Russia has come out with two interesting announcements.

Pravda reports that to “preserve parity in the field,” Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) will be renovating their Topol-M and Yars RS-24 missile systems and constructing an enormous new 100-ton ballistic missile to replace the RS-36 Voyevoda ICBM, known in the west as the Satan missile.

Drums beat for war: US court claims Iranian link to attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 Saturday, Dec 17 2011 

Mr. Chossudovsky, who is interviewed in this news report, is a very knowledgeable person. He has a significant insight into the events that have happened over the past decade.

.

A US court has won a default judgement that Iranian officials, including its supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, provided help to the 9/11 hijackers behind the worst terror attack on American soil.

The lawsuit was filed by the families of the atrocity’s victims. There was no Iranian representation in court. RT talks to Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Center for Research on Globalization.
