Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has threatened to hit India with “aggressive” action, hinting at the full weight of its nuclear arsenal.

Khan extended his threat to “any superpower” that provokes his country. Are his words pointed at Donald Trump, who has shown support for India over Pakistan in recent events?

With 145 nuclear warheads in its bunkers, it’s time to take this conflict seriously. The danger of nuclear war is real and present, and the US, Russia, and China are all involved.

Pakistan: “We will Respond Aggressively”

In a speech in Chachro, close to the border with India, Khan said:

“If someone, if it is India or any superpower, wishes to enslave the Pakistani nation, I want to make it clear that my nation and I will fight until the last breath to save our independence.”

If any superpower threatens Pakistan, he continued, they “will receive a befitting response from here.”

Although Khan stops short of using the word “nuclear”, his commitment to “fight until the last breath” infers a willingness to use the nation’s ultimate firepower. Pakistan has more nuclear warheads than India and is on track to build the third-largest stockpile of nukes on the planet.

“Our Army Is Ready”

It’s the strongest rhetoric from the Pakistani premier after weeks of tension and military activity with neighboring India. As CCN reported, India is stockpiling 750,000 assault rifles and readied a nuclear submarine in an escalating arms race.

“Beware, we are ready, this nation and its army is ready, if you opt for aggression, we will respond aggressively.” – Khan.

Tensions have flared in the last month after Pakistani terrorists killed 40 Indians in a suicide attack. India responded by launching airstrikes into Pakistani territory. Although some news outlines have reported that tensions have eased, Pakistani troops have reportedly violated ceasefire along the Line of Control this week.

A Timeline of Escalating India-Pakistan Tensions

February 14th – Pakistani terrorists kill 40 Indian CRPF personnel in suicide attack.

February 26th – India launches airstrikes across the Line of Control, hitting terrorist JeM training camp.

February 27th – Pakistan shoots down an Indian MiG-21 fighter jet, releases pilot two days later.

March 4th – India readies 750,000 new assault rifles and leases Russian nuclear submarine.

Nuclear World War Three?

Talk of global nuclear war might seem dramatic, but the threat isn’t unimaginable. Tensions between India and Pakistan are at boiling point, and both countries are backed by competing superpowers.

Russia has a long history of backing India with arms and military technology. The US under Donald Trump has also thrown its weight of support behind India while condemning Pakistan. And France has show support for India during United Nations debates.

The brutality of Indian security forces in Occupied Kashmir has rallied all Kashmiris together in their demand for freedom from Indian Occupation. The Indian army is not fighting insurgents but an entire people in IOK. All freedom loving ppl in the world must stand with Kashmiris

— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) February 5, 2019

Meanwhile, China firmly supports Pakistan over the disputed Kashmir region. China refers to Pakistan as its “iron brother,” with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterating his support for Pakistan this week. China also provides technology, investment, and diplomatic support to Pakistan.

This isn’t just about India and Pakistan. China, Russia, the US, and France are deeply involved here too.

“Fight Until the Last Breath”

Ironically, Prime Minister Khan has been shortlisted as a potential Nobel Peace Prize, in part for releasing the captured Indian pilot. But his words this weekend do not sound like the words of peace.

Doubling down on the threat, he said:

“In case of any misadventure by India, the armed forces and people of Pakistan are fully prepared to respond in a befitting manner.”

Despite reports of easing tension, the threat of war in the Indian subcontinent remains real and terrifying. It’s time to take this threat seriously.

Sixth Seal: New York City (Revelation 6:12)

Damaging earthquakes have occurred in New York and surely will again. The likelihood of a damaging earthquake in New York is small overall but the possibility is higher in the northern part of the state and in the New York City region.Significant earthquakes, both located in Rockaway and larger than magnitude 5, shook New York City in 1737 and 1884. The quakes were 147 years apart and the most recent was 122 year ago. It is likely that another earthquake of the same size will occur in that area in the next 25 to 50 years. A magnitude 5.8 earthquake in New York City would probably not cause great loss of life. However the damage to infrastructure – buildings, steam and gas lines, water mains, electric and fiber optic cable – could be extensive.

Earthquake Hazard Map of New York State

Acceleration of the ground during an earthquake is more important than total movement in causing structural damage. This map shows the two-percent probability of the occurrence of an earthquake that exceeds the acceleration of earth’s gravity by a certain percentage in the next fifty years.

If a person stands on a rug and the rug pulled slowly, the person will maintain balance and will not fall. But if the rug is jerked quickly, the person will topple. The same principle is true for building damage during an earthquake. Structural damage is caused more by the acceleration of the ground than by the distance the ground moves.

Earthquake hazard maps show the probability that the ground will move at a certain rate, measured as a percentage of earth’s gravity, during a particular time. Motion of one or two percent of gravity will rattle windows, doors, and dishes. Acceleration of ten to twenty percent of gravity will cause structural damage to buildings. It takes more than one hundred percent of gravity to throw objects into the air.

Palestinian Protester Shot Outside the Temple Walls (Revelation 11)

Palestinian protester shot in the head near Gaza border: ministry

Tamer Arafat, 23, died from his wounds after being shot in the head during Friday’s protest, Gaza health ministry says.

08 Mar 2019 GMT+3

Israeli forces have shot and killed a Palestinian man and wounded more than 40 as thousands protested near the Gaza Strip’s perimeter fence, the enclave’s health ministry has said.

Tamer Arafat, 23, died from his wounds on Friday during the 50th week of demonstrations, said Ashraf al-Qidra, the spokesman for the ministry.

Qidra also said that 48 Palestinians had been wounded by Israeli gunfire, including four medics, two women and 15 children.

The Israeli military said over 8,000 Palestinians took part in the demonstration, throwing rocks and explosives towards soldiers, and that some tried to breach the fence into Israel.

A spokesman for the military said Israeli forces „responded with riot dispersal means and fired in accordance with standard operating procedures“.

Palestinians have staged weekly protests near the border with Israel as part of the Great March of Return protests, which began in March last year.

The demonstrators are calling for the lifting of an Israeli-Egyptian blockade imposed on Gaza since 2007 and for the right to return to their ancestral homes in Israel, as stipulated in UN Resolution 194.

Egypt tries to restore calm

Cross-border violence has increased in recent days with Israel’s military saying it had carried out air raids on a compound belonging to Hamas after explosives attached to balloons were launched from the coastal enclave towards Israel.

Egyptian officials, who have frequently brokered ceasefires between Israel and Hamas, have been shuttling between the sides to try to restore calm, a Palestinian official told Reuters.

According to the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights, 267 Palestinians have been killed in the Gaza Strip since March 30.

Of them, 190 were killed during demonstrations, including 40 children, two women, two journalists, three paramedics and eight disabled people.

Another 14,673 have been injured, including 3,128 children.

Most of the Palestinians killed during the demonstrations were shot in weekly clashes, but some have been hit by Israeli tank fire or air raids.

Israel has accused Hamas of using the demonstrations as cover for infiltrations and attacks, but rights groups and Palestinians say the protesters have posed little threat.

Last month, UN investigators said there was evidence pointing to crimes against humanity by Israeli security forces.

However, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected the report’s findings, saying it was „setting new records of hypocrisy and lies, out of an obsessive hatred of Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East“.

Babylon the Great’s New Nuclear Missiles

Air Force fast-tracks new nuclear missiles

The Air Force is building a new generation of nuclear-armed Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) using cutting edge „digital engineering“ methods intended to fast-track development of the new weapons system and fire off initial prototypes as soon as next year.

Digital engineering, using advanced computer programming, design work and engineering software enables Air Force developers to analyze a wide range of realistic weapons designs without having to build them all. Naturally, this streamlines weapons development and potentially circumvents some lengthy or more cumbersome elements of the traditional acquisition process – to bring powerful new high tech weapons to the force on a faster timeframe.

“With digital engineering, we can look at 10 to 20 designs,” William Roper, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force, Acquisition, Technology & Logistics, told an audience recently at an Air Force Association Symposium.

The Air Force plans to fire off new prototype ICBMs in the early 2020s, assessing new ICBMs with improved range, durability, targeting technology and overall lethality when compared to the existing arsenal, service officials said. The new arsenal of ICBMs to serve well into the 2070s – called Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent, or GBSD.

Given the aging arsenal of Minuteman III ICBMs, this program is taking center stage for the Air Force. The service has awarded two developmental deals to Northrop Grumman and Boeing and plans fire off early prototypes as soon as next year.

Northrop Grumman and Boeing teams were awarded Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction deals from the Air Force last year as part of a longer-term developmental trajectory aimed at developing, testing, firing and ultimately deploying new ICBMs.

Following an initial 3-year developmental phase, the Air Force plans an Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase and eventual deployment of the new weapons.

The Air Force plans to award the single EMD contract in late fiscal year 2020.

Overall, the Air Force plans to build as many as 400 new GBSD weapons to modernize the arsenal and replace the 1970s-era Boeing-built Minuteman IIIs.

The new weapons will be engineered with improved guidance technology, boosters, flight systems and command and control systems, compared to the existing Minuteman III missiles. The weapon will also have upgraded circuitry and be built with a mind to long-term maintenance and sustainability, developers said.

Initial subsystem prototypes are included within the scope of the current Boeing and Northrop deals, service developers said. Senior nuclear weapons developers have told Warrior that upgraded guidance packages, durability and new targeting technology are all among areas of current developmental emphasis for the GBSD.

The new ICBMs will be deployed roughly within the same geographical expanse in which the current weapons are stationed. In total, dispersed areas across three different sites span 33,600 miles, including missiles in Cheyenne, Wyoming, Minot, North Dakota and Great Falls, Montana.

The Paradox of Strategic Deterrence

“GBSD will provide a safe, secure and effective land-based deterrent through 2075,” Cronin claimed.

If one were to passively reflect upon the seemingly limitless explosive power to instantly destroy, vaporize or incinerate cities, countries and massive swaths of territory or people — images of quiet, flowing green meadows, peaceful celebratory gatherings or melodious sounds of chirping birds might not immediately come to mind.

After all, lethal destructive weaponry does not, by any means, appear to be synonymous with peace, tranquility and collective happiness. However, it is precisely the prospect of massive violence which engenders the possibility of peace. Nuclear weapons, therefore, in some unambiguous sense, can be interpreted as being the antithesis of themselves; simply put – potential for mass violence creates peace – thus the conceptual thrust of nuclear deterrence.

Iran: The Imminent And Uncontrollable Fourth Horn (Daniel 8)

Iran: An Imminent And Uncontrollable Explosion

by Hassan Mahmoudi

March 9, 2019

The Iranian Regime has always harshly put down all demonstrations. The repression and systematic violations of human rights have been the Islamic Republic’s main response to the political, social and economic demands of the population.

On Mar.7, 2019, Ali Khamenei, leader of Iran’s religious dictatorship, appointed Ebrahim Raisi, a member of the Death Committee in the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, and a devoted supporter of the supreme leader, as head of Iran’s judiciary.

Raisi should be subject to international prosecution for committing crimes against humanity in the massacre of political prisoners in 1988 and tried for the genocide of People’s Mujahadeen Of Iran (PMOI) members. His appointment as the highest judicial authority of the clerical regime signals a hard turn to even more repression by the clerical regime against the Iranian people and resistance. Khamenei described his appointment as a “new era” and the “second stage” of the regime’s so-called revolution, and ordered Raisi not “to pay heed to outsiders when dealing with judicial matters.”

In 1988, Grand Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s successor at the time, and a higher-ranking cleric than Khamenei and his minions, summoned members of the Death Committee including Raisi. Montazeri and addressed them in a meeting that was recorded and later published, stating, “The greatest crime committed under the Islamic Republic, for which history will condemn us, has been committed by you. Your (names) will in the future be etched in the annals of history as criminals.”

Raisi’s appointment by Khamenei proves once again that as the head of the crisis-stricken theocratic regime, he finds no other solution than a hard turn towards further repression in order to contain the crisis of the coming new Iranian year (starting March 21, 2019). Khamenei thus wants to barricade his clerical regime against the uprising of the Iranian people and their organized resistance for justice and freedom in Iran.

In more than a century, Iranians have experienced four major movements in search of democracy: the Constitutional Revolution of 1906, Mohammad Mossadegh’s nationalist movement in the early 1950s, the Antimonarchist Revolution of 1979 and resistance against the Islamic Republic from the 1980s to the present. Because of an ideology that emerged from the depths of the Middle Ages, the clergy regime has nothing in common with this progressive orientation. This regime represents the aspirations that belong to the pre-capitalist period, which makes it incapable of solving the social, economic and political problems of Iranian society. This distinguishes the Islamic Republic from any other classical dictatorship that the contemporary world has known or is experiencing. This explains why the repression in Iran is taking on a completely different dimension than anywhere else in the world.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the Bassij militia which deals with urban repression in all areas of society’s activity, justice in the hands of religious who do not comply with any of the rules of law, a prison system that applies torture and killings beyond the imagination, secret services that have become a killing machine, and a multitude of vice patrols, in addition to the police, are responsible for ensuring the proper functioning of this repression which is the only reason for maintaining power in place.

Abuse of religion: a complement to repression

The regime of the Supreme Leader has used religion as a justification for repression. A disfiguration of Islam’s precepts served this alibi to justify all the horrors. Thus it gives the name “rehabilitation” to torture, “call for modesty” to merciless repression of women in all their social behavior. In its war against Iraq in the 1980s, this regime offered keys to paradise to schoolchildren and high school students whom it recruited to wipe minefields in order to facilitate the passage of its troops. The Constitution openly denies national sovereignty and gives absolute powers to the Supreme Leader. These are the features of a regime that is not a republic and has nothing to do with Islam but calls itself the Islamic Republic.

An increase in resistance among the population

The Fars news agency, known to be affiliated directly to the notorious Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), published an article Wednesday morning reflecting the mullahs’ growing concerns about the country’s young generation leaning more and more towards the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The piece literally warns that people should not be deceived by “the PMOI/MEK’s mediums on the internet!”

“The measures carried out by the PMOI/MEK’s mediums on social media indicates that most of their criteria and the provocative methods are designed to influence the younger generation… Usually the youth under the age of 20, due to their inexperience, are easily influenced and begin undergoing training by the enemy’s elements…,” the piece reads in part.

“In the past, the enemy was forced to come inside the country to establish contact… Today, however, the internet and social media are allowing the enemy to establish contact with social media users on their mobile phones and personal computers. As a result, the enemy’s mediums can easily use deceitful methods to establish direct contact with mainly the younger and lesser informed users,” the Fars piece continues.

Babylon the Great Prepares for Nuclear War (Revelation 15)

WW3: US secretly launched THREE nuclear rockets from Antarctica ‘to test EMP on Russia‘

THE US government ran a series of nuclear tests over the South Atlantic Ocean to test an electromagnetic pulse in space, a documentary revealed.

Operation Argus was a series of high-atmosphere nuclear weapons tests conducted between August and September 1958 over the South Atlantic ocean. The whole project, which was highly classified, took just 11 days and was carried out by the Defence Nuclear Agency during the Cold War period. It was proposed by scientist Nicholas Christofilos as a means to verify whether the high-altitude nuclear detonations would create a radiation belt in the extreme upper regions of the Earth’s atmosphere.

However, many believe the real intent was much more sinister.

Aaron and Melissa Dykes put forward an alternative theory during their YouTube documentary “The Real Secrets Hidden in Antarctica”.

They argue the US government was actually testing whether the electromagnetic pulse created by a nuclear explosion could be used as a weapon in the event of World War Three with Russia.

Ms Dykes revealed: “In 1963 there were claims made that a nuclear bomb had been detonated on Antarctica.

The blast was detonated in space (Image: GETTY)

“Although the US initially denied reports, trying to pass it off as a natural phenomenon, they later admitted it had actually happened.

“They may have set this off in the upper atmosphere of the South Pole in order to create an artificial EMP.

“If they did it would have been allowed under the Antarctica treaty if it was deemed to be for scientific purposes.”

Just yesterday, more details on a secret Pentagon project below the ice was revealed.

Declassified files showed the well publicised Camp Century of the 1960s was actually a cover-up for a top-secret programme.

Project Iceworm was the codename for the United States Army’s mission to build a network of mobile nuclear missile launch sites in Greenland.

The ultimate objective was to place medium-range missiles under the ice – close enough to strike targets within the Soviet Union.

However, just three years after it was built, ice core samples taken by geologists demonstrated that the glacier was moving much faster than anticipated and would destroy the tunnels and planned launch stations in about two years.

The facility was evacuated in 1965 and the nuclear generator removed.
