The Iranians Are Promising More Military Action Against U.S. Forces

Bible Prophecy intimates a skirmish in the Middle East followed by The Final War. I think this is the coming “skirmish,” but don’t sue me if I was wrong!
What in the world are the Iranians thinking? After President Trump decided not to respond militarily to the rockets that the Iranians fired at U.S. bases in Iraq, it appeared that a major war had been averted. People all over the world celebrated this unexpected turn of events, and global stock markets soared. But now the Iranians are changing their tune again. Instead of “standing down”, top Iranian leaders are warning that “harsher revenge” is on the way and that there will be more attacks against U.S. forces.
I think that Iran correctly perceives that Trump does not want a war, but if Trump gets pushed too far he will hit the Iranians extremely hard. And once the Iranian homeland starts getting pummeled by U.S. missiles, the Iranians will start firing some of the 200,000 missiles that they have stockpiled at Israel, and needless to say the Israelis will respond with even greater force. In other words, any escalation of this conflict at this point has the potential to spark World War 3.
The Iranians would be wise to stop this nonsense while they still can, but apparently they have no intention of doing so.
On Thursday, the commander of the Revolutionary Guard’s Aerospace Force claimed that the missile attacks the other night were just “the first stage of a major regional operation aimed at expelling U.S. forces from the Middle East”…
Iran’s missile strikes on Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops were the first stage of a major regional operation aimed at expelling U.S. forces from the Middle East, the Iranian commander responsible for the attack said Thursday.
Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, who as commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s Aerospace Force oversees most of Iran’s missile arsenal, stopped short of threatening further concrete military action. He also said Iran hadn’t intended to kill anyone in Wednesday’s attack but only to cause material damage.
And Revolutionary Guard commander Abdollah Araghi is promising that “harsher revenge” is coming soon…
A senior Iranian military commander has promised further action against the United States, a day after Tehran launched missiles at two bases housing US troops in Iraq.
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander Abdollah Araghi said that Iran would take “harsher revenge soon,” without specifying what that might entail, Tasnim news agency reported on Thursday.
Do they actually believe that Trump will allow them to repeatedly attack our forces without responding?
If any American had been killed during the missile strikes the other night, it is quite likely that Trump would have responded already.
And when Trump acts, he likes to make a major statement.
Iran is playing a very dangerous game, and if they miscalculate just a little bit there will be disastrous consequences.
Unfortunately, they are so blinded by rage that they don’t appear to be thinking rationally. At this point, the Iranian media is reporting that the recent missile attacks were “only the beginning of the strikes”…
Tasnim News Agency reported on Thursday that the missiles that hit U.S. interests in Iraq were only the beginning of the strikes. The deputy head of the IRGC, Ali Fadavi, described Iran’s missile attacks on US forces as a display of the Islamic Republic’s military capabilities, claiming that the Americans “couldn’t do a damn thing” about the strikes.
Many of us had been hoping that cooler heads would prevail, but at least on the Iranian side that does not appear to be happening.
And Iranian proxies are already lobbing rockets at U.S. targets. For example, on Wednesday a couple of “small rockets” were launched toward the Green Zone in Baghdad…
Small rockets hit the area in or around the Green Zone in Iraq’s capital of Baghdad late Wednesday, a day after Iran launched missiles at bases housing U.S. and other coalition forces in Iraq, American military officials said.
There was no casualties to U.S. or other coalition forces in the area, and no damage to facilities in the Green Zone, which contains the American embassy and other Western diplomatic posts, officials said.
Subsequently, there was a rocket attack on Balad Air Base in Iraq on Thursday…
Another day, another rocket (alleged) rocket attack on a US airbase in Iraq.
Al-Sumaria reports that rockets hit the Balad Air Base, about 40 miles north of Baghdad, where US troops are stationed.
The source said in an interview with Alsumaria News, “A missile, whose type was not specified, fell this evening, to the Fadlan area of the Dujail district near Balad Air Base,” without giving further details.
Iranian proxies would not be doing this if they did not have permission from Tehran.
Perhaps President Trump is waiting until there are American casualties to respond, and he certainly is not eager to get the U.S. involved in a major war during an election year, but at some point his patience is going to run out.
Meanwhile, the IDF has just conducted a stunning attack on Iranian-backed militia targets “on the border between Syria and Iraq”…
According to reports by domestic and western media, the Israeli air force carried out an attack against an Iran-backed militia reportedly headquartered on the border between Syria and Iraq.
Tribal sources in Iraq apparently told reporters that the Israeli shelling targeted trucks and individuals associated with Iranian-backed militias near the Iraqi-Syria border. Artillery and shelling was also reported, though it’s unclear who fired those shots. The weapons are believed to have been destined for Hezbollah.
In the end, even if President Trump is absolutely determined to keep the U.S. out of a major conflict there will still be a war between Israel and Iran.
The Iranians have restarted their nuclear program, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged that Iran will never be allowed to finish it.
The clock is ticking, and Israel is going to do whatever it takes to keep the psychopaths in Iran from being able to build their own nuclear weapons.
So one way or another, war is definitely coming, and it will change all of our lives in a major way.
But many were hoping that World War 3 was at least delayed for a while after Trump showed such great restraint on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, the Iranians seem determined to press their luck, and we are all going to pay a great price for their complete and utter recklessness.

Michael Snyder’s Warning To America
November 24, 2019
If America stays on the path that it is currently on, the end of America is going to come far more rapidly than most people would dare to imagine. This is a message that we have been sharing on television, on radio and with millions of readers over the years, but most Americans seem quite content to remain in a state of deep sleep.
Unfortunately, the elements of “the perfect storm” are rapidly coming together, and time is running out for this country. Instead of repenting and turning back to God, just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is absolutely exploding in the United States, and we continue to run away from God as fast as we can.
There is only one way that this is going to end, and we have been warned about the things that are coming over and over again. We are moving into a time when everything that can be shaken will be shaken. The global financial system is on the precipice of utter disaster, we we witnessing great civil unrest and political shaking all over the world, the drumbeat of war grows louder and louder, weather patterns are going absolutely crazy and seismic activity is on the rise all over the planet.
As global events accelerate, people all over the world are going to be looking for answers, and there will be a great deal of confusion. We intend to be a beacon of light during “the perfect storm”, and we hope to point millions to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We wish that there were lots of voices sharing this message all over America, but unfortunately there are relatively few. Over the past decade, our websites have been viewed well over 100 million times, and the articles have been regularly republished on dozens of other prominent websites where they have been read hundreds of millions more times.
The reach that we have is truly miraculous, and we hear from people all over the world that have been impacted by what we do.

The worst times in all of human history are coming, and what Michael Snyder has uncovered is this book has dramatic implications for every man, woman and child on the entire planet. The Rapture Verdict is likely to become one of the most controversial Christian books in decades, and it addresses many of the hottest questions being debated today…
-Will Christians have to go through all of the chaos described in the book of Revelation?
-Is the judgment of God coming to America?
-Are we on the verge of entering the Great Tribulation?
-What is “the parousia”, and how does that ancient Greek word completely shake up conventional theories about the rapture?
-Does the rapture come before, after or somewhere in the middle of the Tribulation?
-Why are millions of Christians in the western world going to become extremely angry with their pastors?
-Do the Biblical festivals provide us with a prophetic template for the events surrounding the second coming of Jesus Christ?
-Will this be the generation that witnesses the rise of the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast?

The amazing discoveries and ominous warnings that he shares in this book are going to shake the Christian world to the core. The Rapture Verdict is both a chilling warning and a deeply inspiring message of hope.

The Beginning Of The End – The Beginning of the End is a mystery/thriller set in the United States in the near future. It is a time of unprecedented economic collapse, deep political corruption, accelerating social decay, out of control rioting in the cities and great natural disasters. In the midst of all of this chaos, a former CIA agent, a respected financial reporter and a blogger that takes his prepping to extremes all find themselves dropped into the middle of an ancient conflict between two shadowy international organizations. The three of them are absolutely horrified to discover that one of those shadowy international organizations is planning to hit New York City with the largest terror attack in U.S. history. The goal is to throw the entire country into chaos, but who will get the blame? A series of incredibly shocking twists and turns ultimately culminates in a wild cross country chase that leads up to a surprising ending that most readers will not see coming. A great storm is coming to America, and time is quickly running out. The Beginning of the End is a great book to give to anyone that is still not prepared for what is ahead.

Living A Life That Really Matters – This is Michael’s latest book, and it will help those that read it to be spiritually prepared for the great chaos that is about to be unleashed on this planet.
Deep inside all of us is a yearning to live a life that is filled with meaning and purpose. We all want to feel good about our lives, and we all want something to look forward to when we get out of bed in the morning. As little children we were filled with hopes and dreams for the future, but for so many of us those dreams have long since faded. Instead, many of us drag ourselves through life feeling down, depressed and defeated. In this book Michael Snyder is going to share with you what he has learned about living an overflowing life. We were designed to love, to laugh, to discover, to create and to live lives that are filled with passion. Unfortunately, so many of us have bought into lies that have enabled the enemy to steal all of that from us. No matter how bad things may seem right now, God can take the broken pieces of your life and turn them into a beautiful thing. But you have got to be willing to break your old patterns and start doing things that will produce good fruit in your life. This book will help you to do that.
Of course the most important thing is to get right with God and to know for certain where you will spend eternity. If you would like to learn more about how to become a Christian, you can do so right here. Without Jesus, none of us would have any hope at all during the times that are coming, and so I encourage you to make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior as soon as you can.
