Revived Rome Flexes Its Military Might

And so it begins. With the approval and acquiescence of the world governing body, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) adopted Resolution 1973 as its casus belli for the enforcement of UNSC Resolution 1970.

Within 48 hours of the adoption of this resolution the emergent superpower of Bible prophecy, the European Union, took the lead in declaring a de facto state of war exists against an Islamic sovereign state in the throes of a civil war. Today, for the first time, the armed forces of the European Union went to war against the government of Libya.

And where is America, formerly the military superpower and leader of the so-called free world? In a supporting role! And the apparent leader of the European Union's first military adventure outside of Europe's borders - the French-Hungarian/Greek-Jewish President of France, Nicholas Paul Stephane Sarkozy de Nagy-Bosca.

I believe we are all witnesses to a benchmark event of profound eschatological implications and from which there will be no turning back. September 11, 2001 was a day that changed America forever. March 19, 2011, eight years to the day from the start of the American-led conquest of Saddam Hussein's Ba'athist Iraq, is a day that will prove to be one which changes our world forever.

Update: The NATO base in Naples, Italy, AFSOUTH or Armed Forces South, is the headquarters of this European-led military operation in Libya, and the primary British aviation contribution will be controlled from the Joint Forces Air Component (JFAC) located at Akrotiri, Cyprus. The United Arab Emirates and Qatar have pledged approximately 30 combat aircraft to be placed under European command. The name given to the war against the Libyan regime is "Operation Odyssey Dawn."

All war is based upon deception, and this war will be no exception. The truth behind this war is going to be defended by a bodyguard of lies. So I guess it goes without saying that the lies are being told in advance. One such lie is, "no ground troops." There will have to be boots on the ground in Libya; it is unavoidable in order to ensure the ill-defined mission objectives that do exist are met.
