We hear more and more about earthquakes, famines, droughts, wild fires, disease and sickness, wars and rumors of wars, floods, hailstorms and tornadoes. We hear of an undetected asteroid that almost collided with our planet.
We watch as new political alliances develop on the world scene, and ancient empires rise with renewed influence to form new alliances and power blocs. Unexpected economic developments cause uncertainty among investors and erosion of confidence among consumers. Terrorist attacks become more commonplace—and closer to home. We look for peace, but there is no peace.
While President Donald Trump is focused on North Korea’s nuclear madman, a more alarming threat is rising in South Asia:
an explosive mix of nuclear weapons, terrorism and hair-trigger war plans. Pakistan, already a major nuclear weapons power with well over 100 warheads and the missiles to carry them, is racing to expand its arsenal of short-range tactical weapons meant as a deterrent against India, its larger, more powerful neighbor and blood enemy. India is thought to have around 100 nuclear warheads of its own. (North Korea is estimated to possess enough fissile material to make several warheads.)
But it’s not the numbers of weapons between India and Pakistan that most worry analysts and diplomats. It’s the instability of their nuclear stand-off and the possibility that an accident, a miscalculation or a terrorist attack could ignite a catastrophic nuclear war.
Bitter and distrustful, the two countries have fought four wars since 1947 and skirmished in numerous border clashes that continue to this day. Analysts now warn of a growing risk that another border clash could swiftly escalate into a nuclear crisis.
Pakistan and India appear to be engaged in an arms race of nuclear capable missiles. For example, in January of 2017 Pakistan test both the Babur-3 nuclear capable sub-launched cruise missile and an Ababeel ballistic missile proclaimed to be MIRV capable. India continues to develop the K-4 submarine launched ballistic missile. Kashmir remains disputed territory and Pakistan continues to sponsor violent sub-state groups in the region.
In all this, China had a big role to play. China helped North Korea to develop its missile capacity. And China assisted Pakistan in building its nuclear prowess (weapons-grade uranium, uranium enrichment process and ultracentrifuge uranium enrichment plant at Kahuta). Subsequently, Pakistan and North Korea exchanged their respective expertise, which was basically acquired from China (AQ Khan deviated a bit by stealing technologies from the West).
WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
Everything you have ever known will be changed over the next decade or two. Your future, and the future of your children and grandchildren, is really at stake.
While the imminent danger of an all-out nuclear war that would destroy civilization has greatly diminished in the post-Soviet era, there are processes at work that make nuclear war much more dangerous than might first appear. Nuclear proliferation is creating more and more nuclear tinder that could set off a global fire, with India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea being the most obvious possible flash points.
STEVE QUAYLE REMNANT RADIO PREPARE PREPARE PREPARE!!
Doomsday prepping crosses political lines. Thus, we can see that, just perhaps, we should pay more attention to this alert than we have paid in the past.
Today, however, it seems we’re not quite so convinced that the rantings aren’t actually prophecies for a doom-laden future.
As many as three million Americans now fall into the category dubber ‘preppers’ – people who are making detailed plans for the end of the world as we know it.
The preppers are an ever-growing group of survivalists who take extreme measures to prepare for a major catastrophic event.
Why such unrest in a world that supposedly is making giant strides to help us live longer and make our lives easier? It is because mankind, as a whole, has chosen to turn his back on his Creator. Thousands of years ago a book was written that predicted these very events would occur in our time—right now—in our day and age. God clearly warns us through this ancient book—the Bible—that even more devastating events will come upon this earth very soon, unless we repent and turn to Him.
