The Growing Unholy Alliance Between the US and Iran

I’m having a real hard time believing this, but it makes too much sense to ignore – no matter how sick and twisted it sounds. Worse, this information comes from two completely different sources, Robert Kaplan of Stratfor and Jim Willie. So, it’s real, and it makes sense.

But, it makes me sick.

The article that got my attention was this one, from Michael Barone in the Washington Examiner:

Is Obama seeking an opening to Iran the way Richard Nixon did with China?

The Middle East has been thrown under the bus, and yet another fuse has been lit for World War III. However, one interesting result will be the final realization by the Arabs that the Israelis are their only hope for survival. That is a positive thing, and it seems to correspond with Isaiah 19:

In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians. In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land: Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.Isaiah 19:23-25

Israel will be in a federation with Egypt and Syria/Assyria?


But first, the Middle East needs to be shaken to its foundations. There is no way that Isaiah 19, The Burden of Egypt, can come about with the Arabs and the Israelis continuing to fight each other. And, one way for a truce to get started is to have an enemy rise that threatens the existence of everyone.

That enemy is Russia and Iran, and with the US and Europe in full retreat from the region, there is no one stopping them from jumping in and taking over. And yes, that ‘jumping in and taking over’ is the coming of Gog and Magog.

Now, I see that puzzled look on your face, so let me explain why America is doing this.

There are layers to the reason why this is happening, and a 600 word article can’t encompass them all. But, I’ll do my best.

Surface reason.

Frankly, the US is out of money and at war with China. You knew about America being broke, but you probably didn’t know about the war with China. It’s mostly a financial war, although there are proxy conflicts going on in Africa and Southeast Asia. But, it’s still a war, and the US cannot afford to be in the Middle East AND the Western Pacific. So, they have to choose to respond to the greater threat.

Deeper Reason.

The Russians consider the Middle East to be their back door. Challenging them is never a good idea unless you are willing to fight, and America is no longer willing to fight – especially a land war. In a naval conflict, the US will always win, but any future war in the Middle East will be on terra firma. And, America is tired of expensive land wars that go nowhere.

Russia knows this, so it’s checkmate for the US in the Middle East.

Even Deeper Reason.

The New World Order Illuminati globalists have been struggling with each other for centuries. The English Illuminati defeated the French Illuminati at Waterloo, which is why London is a world banking center, and not Paris. The Russian Illuminati and the Chinese Illuminati have been struggling with each other for more than fifty years, but so far, neither side has lost much ground.

And, the US Illuminati and the Russian Illuminati have been struggling over the Middle East. The US Illuminati lost, so the Russians get to take over.

Of course, I’m tossing around the word ‘Illuminati’, when ‘globalist’ might be a better term. (Also, the globalists don’t call themselves Illuminati, anymore.) But, the Satanic element to these globalist efforts truly resonates with the Illuminati name, so I’m sticking with it.

Lucifer is pulling the strings, and that’s why it’s all happening this way.

And then, there’s God.

Let’s not forget that God is at work, here. The invasion by Gog and Magog is coming, and God said that He was the one making it happen. When the dust settles, there will be a new Middle East, with Israel and many Arabs knowing Jesus as their Lord and Savior – and that will REALLY make Satan upset.

And then, and only then, will the Antichrist come.

Are you ready for this?

  1. The only flaw I see in your logic is stating the US will win a naval war.

    With China & Russia having super sonic missles/torpedos + stealth subs, I think the tide has turned against the US naval power. (+ with the US turning it’s back on God by eliminating anything Christian or biblical, judgement will follow).


    • Hey S.L.,

      I suspect that you’re right. The only thing that I can say is that we have yet to see them used in combat… but, that’s the ONLY thing that I can say. There’s also word of new anti-ship EMP weapons deployed by the Chinese.

      “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray… ” – 2 Chronicles 7:14

      Good points S.L.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  2. John,

    As a retired USN Surface Warfare Officer, I follow developments in our and foreign navies. I’m afraid that I agree with S.L. about your sanguinity about the fighting capabilities of the US Navy of today. Beyond the technological developments, one must also consider the “fighting spirit” of our military (all branches), which has been much reduced to a “let the other guy take the first poke” attitude — and then, further requiring permission “from on high” in order to retaliate.

    It is true that we have yet to see the efficiency of the potential adversaries’ latest weaponry; but, it doesn’t take much reading on the topic to observe that their attitudes are well-trained to take on this sleeping, somewhat moth-eaten nation.


    • Hey Jas. K.,

      I am so sorry to hear that our morale has fallen so far. I guess that I still struggle to hold onto the thought that ‘fighting spirit’ still lives on in our navy and air force.

      Good morale is the greatest ‘force multiplier’ that I know, and we are lost without it.

      Thanks for that comment, JK.

      Yours in Christ,

  3. John, I have been following your articles and appreciate your keen insight into the macinations of the globalists. there’s a point I’d like to offer for your consideration concerning the timing of Isael’s national repentace and conversion, using the following scriptures: Zechariah 14, Daniel 12,,Rev.11:2 ,13-19, and Luke 21:20,24. It seems to me that these scriptures put Israels conversion at the end of the great trib and the co-operation with syria and egypt into the Millenium.,,,,,Darrell Propst

    • Hi Darrell Propst,

      Ah, I think that I understand where you’re coming from. Many ‘theologians’ lump the Gog and Magog of Ezekiel with the Gog and Magog of Revelation. But, there’s a HUGE difference between them.

      In Ezekiel, it is GOD who draws Gog and Magog.

      In Revelation, it is SATAN.

      These two references CANNOT point to the same event – even though the names Gog and Magog appear in both. God works in the first – Satan in the second.

      Remember this. Just because a name is mentioned in two different places… well, it doesn’t mean that they are the same situation.

      Let me explain by using a personal example. There is another John Little who writes on global security and foreign policy, and some of our articles could almost have been written by either one of us. But, the OTHER John Little is in Texas, and writes And, I’m in Taiwan, and I do NOT write for blogsofwar.

      Thanks for that comment, Darrell. I hope that I’ve illustrated properly what I think is the key issue. If you have any other questions, let me know.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  4. Hi John, I agree with you that the two Gog and Magog wars are separate events as the one in Rev. 20 clearly occurs after the 1000 years. My reference in Rev.11:14 and 15 however deals with the second coming for in verse 14 the third woe is the seventh angel blowing his trumpet (verse 15). In chapter 8, the 7 angels were given 7 trumpets and the last trumpet to sound is the last trump (1st Corinthians 15:52) when in Rev. 11:15 the kingdoms of the world become the Lord and His Christ. God Bless you for the work you do for the Lord,,,,,Darrell

    • Hi Darrell Propst,

      Hmmmm… so, I jumped to the wrong conclusion. Maybe I should have asked why you think that Israel’s redemption occurs after the Great Tribulation.

      Why do you think that?

      Thank you Darrell!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  5. Sorry for the delayed response, John ,I just this morning checked to see if the thread was still active. There are many scriptures that indicate the time of Israel’s conversion. The most descriptive are Zech. 12 -14. Zech. 12:10 indicates the occasion along with Rev. 1:7 . Zech.12: “they shall look upon me whom they pierced” and Rev.1:7″Behold,he cometh with cloud;and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him:…..” , indicates this time as the second coming. Also zech 14:4 indicates that this time of their deliverence is the very day He set’s his foot on the Mount of Olives as the angel said he would in Acts 1: 11, 12. Also according to Luke 21:24 Jerusalem’s deliverance will not occur until the ” The times of the Gentiles be fulfilled”, Rev. 11:2 further substantiates that. I don”t believe that the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled until the the last of the Gentile world empires are destoyed and the “kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord….” as rev. 11:15 declare,,,,,, at the last trump,,, Rev 11:15. There are many other proof texts which I will be happy to discuss if you wish. God Bless you,,,,Darrell

    • Hi Darrel Propst,

      I can see where you get this point.

      However, let me point out that the second half of Luke 21:24 says:

      …and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

      It is clear that the sign of the fulfillment of the times of the Gentiles is when the Gentiles no longer control Jerusalem. The Gentiles stopped controlling Jerusalem on June 7, 1967 when Motta Gur gave the shout that rang ’round the world, “HaHar Habayit B’Yadenu!” (The Temple Mount is in our hands.)

      To say otherwise, you would have to prove that the Jews do NOT control Jerusalem, and that would be pretty tough. As a long time resident of that beautiful city, I can tell you that every square inch of Jerusalem is under complete control of the Jewish people.

      Furthermore, there is more than one way to look upon Jesus ‘whom they have pierced’. We ourselves see Jesus, not by our physical eyes, but our spiritual.

      Remember also, that Christ’s return marks the ingathering of all who are saved. After His return, will there be a SECOND ingathering?

      I think not. There certainly isn’t any reference to this in the Bible.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • “I can tell you that every square inch of Jerusalem is under complete control of the Jewish people.” John,what is your take on why they have allowed the desecration( the removal of 400+ truck loads of land, and dumping that archeology rich land into the city dump in 1999) by the Muslims to the temple mount? Their most sacred & holy place.

        • Hi Jamie W,

          I have friends who are archeologists who aren’t happy with this state of affairs, but it is interesting.

          The reason why it isn’t stopped is because the Israeli government is attempting to tread a fine line between inciting violence and preserving archeology. The Israeli government would much rather have temporary peace than preserve archeological finds.

          Think of it as real politik.

          It doesn’t mean that Israel doesn’t have power over that area, they are just choosing not to enforce their power. It’s really that simple.

          Also, you are thinking that the Israeli government in religious terms. That’s the wrong way to think of them. They’re secular – Not religious.

          Please remember that no other law holds sway over Jerusalem – Israeli law and only Israeli law.

          I hope that I answered your question, Jamie.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  6. IIIn Isaiah 11:11 we read “And it shallcome to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set Hia hand again the {second time} to recover the remnant of His people, which shall be left from Assyria, and from……” This is clearly a millenial passage as verses 6-10 of the same Chapter indicate, giving it context. ,the wolf lying down with the lamb etc. The gathering in Israel today then is a counterfit by Ashkenazi desendants from the Khazars. The Jewish encyclopedia even admits that 90 percent of the Jewish race today is of Ashkenazi stock., and before you call me anti-semitic my last name is Ashkenazi. According to my research these are historical facts, the majority of so called Jews in Israel are not desendants of Abraham, but we are if we are in Christ and any Ashkenazi or Saphartic Jew can be graphed in thru faith. Thus the end of the times of the Gentiles has to be when Christ comes and destroy’s the last gentile world empire as shown in Daniel chp’s 2,7,8. I enjoy a good discussion John, I don’t get many chances because there are so few people with any interest or your level of knowledge of these things. God bless you real good,,,,Darrell

    • Hi Darrell,

      Again, you are side-stepping many important points. Let’s take just one:

      When does the first resurrection happen?

      At the return of Jesus.

      That’s also when the first judgment occurs, and all who are in the Kingdom will be there. And, that means those who were in the Old Testament, as well.

      How can you have the Jews return to the Lord AFTER the first resurrection and the first judgment?

      That’s impossible.

      As far as your point about ‘who is a Jew’, does it matter?

      God knows who are His and who aren’t. Furthermore, I suspect that God honors those who have committed themselves to the family of Abraham regardless of ‘bloodline’. The bloodline of Jesus, Himself, has many that were not of the blood of Avraham, Yitzhak and Ya’acov in His ancestry.

      I think that we can trust God on this issue. And, it worries me that Zechariah 13 speaks of 2/3rds of Israel being killed at the coming of Gog and Magog, so this might be how God eliminates those who are not truly ‘of Israel’. (I truly wish that there was a way to avoid this. I truly do.)

      But, when Zech 13:8 happens, beware the world. What happens in Israel will soon happen to the rest us on planet Earth.

      Over the next few years we will understand who is right, and who is wrong on this issue. But by then, it will be too late. I encourage everyone to make ready now and choose where you should stand as you seek to serve the Lord.

      For my wife and I, that place will be Jerusalem, Lord willing. If He will otherwise, we will stand where He leads us.

      Please consider carefully, Darrell. This is more than just a doctrinal issue.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  7. Also John I would be remiss if I didn”t point out that my references to ” and they also which pierced Him” both are in the context of His actual physical return. In Rev>1:7 the “Behold He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him” is certainly a reference to His physical second coming , and the one in Zech.12:10 is also as 14:4 declares ” And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives” Surely you won”t deny that will you? With respect,,,,,,Darrell

    • Hi Darrell,

      Again, we are talking about the meaning of salvation.

      Where in scriptures do you see it possible to be saved AFTER the return of Jesus?

      Every one of the parables of our Lord are very clear on this.

      To say otherwise, you would need to claim another way to salvation than Jesus.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  8. I absolutely agree John, It’s really not so important in the light of the most important issue i.e. {are we the seed of Abraham by faith}. In reality the old testament saints had to have that faith also. In my understanding it’s only the believing remnant that returns to Jerusalem anyway and I won’t give the reference for that as I get the feeling that your tired of me throwing all these curly scriptures at you. Eschatology has enough concepts that are hard to wrap the mind around insist that others see it the same way we do and I don’t expect to convince you , or even feel the need to. I thought it was a stimulating exchange of views on the subject however. Keep up the good work John,,,,,Darrell

  9. Huge Flaw

    Isa 19:1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, the LORD rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
    Isa 19:16 In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the LORD of hosts, which he shaketh over it.

    This is the 2nd advent /Armageddon. The fierce king is Antichrist. Egypt doesn’t have this pathway until after the 7th trump/DoTL. Until then it is given over to the Babylonian Mystery/sorceries. There is no Israeli Egypt Alliance. Egypt is part of the Antichrist kingdom until the LORD smites it along with the rest of the nations at armageddon.

  10. Hi Shaun, I agree with you that these events occur after the 2nd advent. There is no historical precedent that I know of that it has been fulfilled and if you compare it with God’s direct dealings with the nations after Christs return it fits perfectly. I refer to such passeges as Zech. 14 where God cuts the rain off for failure to observe the feast of tabernacles ,for instance or Joel and other references that indicate that weapons of war will be turn into farming tools Etc. God Bless,,,,Darrell

    • Hi Darrell Propst,

      You are right that Isaiah 19 has not been fulfilled yet, but does NOT mean that this occurs at the Second Coming, or at Armageddon.

      You also have not offered any explanation that connects Isaiah 19 to that moment in time.

      Furthermore, with all that is going on in Egypt right now, why would you think that Isaiah 19 points to Armageddon?

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  11. You’re right John, I can’t prove it scripturally, At this point but I believe the part in Isaiah 19 about the highway from Egypt to assyria occurs after after Armageddon and the second coming. god Bless,,,,Darrell
