NATO's Days May Be Numbered

Are NATO days numbered

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the western alliance that saved liberal democracy from Communist aggression and won the Cold War, appears to be on life support and may not survive the tenure of U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump has never made a secret of his disdain for NATO, which he views as a drain on American’s treasury. Even as a candidate for the Republican party’s presidential nomination, Trump called into question the value of NATO, which was established in 1949 to counter the threat of Soviet aggression in Europe.

Indeed, it must be painfully obvious to Europeans that Uncle Sam can no longer be counted upon to protect them from the likes of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, who ordered the 2014 invasion of Ukraine and subsequent annexation of the Crimean Peninsula. (Then-U.S. President Barak Obama offered only weak leadership during the Crimea crisis.)

Armistice fight

In the lead-up to the ceremonies in France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Great War, French President Emmanuel Macron stated in a radio interview that Europe needed “a true European army” so that Europeans would not have to depend on the United States to defend them.

On Nov. 9, Trump reacted angrily on Twitter to President Macron’s promotion of a European alternative to NATO, calling the suggestion “very insulting.” Then he stated that “perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO, which the U.S. subsidizes greatly.”

During one of the armistice weekend commemorations, Macron delivered a speech on the dangers of nationalism, which was interpreted by many observers as a veiled rebuke of President Trump’s nationalistic “America First” policies.

Stung by Macron’s remarks, Trump fired an undiplomatic Twitter salvo at the French leader. “Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia,” Trump posted early on the morning of Nov. 13. “But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two — How did that work out for France?” Trump asked, taunting a country that suffered greatly in both world wars.

In a Nov. 14 interview, Macron indirectly responded to Trump’s attacks.

“At every moment of our history, we were allies,” the French leader said of France and the United States when speaking to French television channel TF1. “So between allies, respect is due. I don’t think the French expect me to respond to tweets but to continue this important history.”

As for the issue of an independent fighting force, Macron halfheartedly reaffirmed France’s commitment to its alliance with the United States. “It’s the ally with which we take all the risks, with which we carry out the most complicated operations,” he stated. “But being an ally doesn’t mean being a vassal state.”

The Bible says that NATO will not survive, there must be a break down in the past relationship between Europe and America for Europe to move into the sphere of a new relationship with Russia as the Bible Predicts and has done so for over 2500yrs in Bible Prophecy that is continuing to be played out in Current World Events.  So yes, yet another article that highlights the issue of the challenge that is facing NATO.  This article highlights yet again the fulfilment of Bible Prophecy spoken 2500 years ago.  The Bible reveals that The EU will become a SUPERSTATE with a dominant FEDERAL GOVERNMENT described in the Bible as a Beast System due to its amalgamation of different countries and peoples into one State with one Voice.  Along with this development we expect to see Russia become more involved in Europe with links to a combined army, yes NATO will come to an end and Russia will end up militarily linked to this EU ARMY.  But Russia will never join the EU as Putin will never give up Russia's sovereignty.

So WATCH this development as it is a sure sign that we are living in the last days before Christ's Return.  

This EU SUPERSTATE will along with Russia enter into a final conflict with Israel and the Middle East.  Germany is the key country in what Bible Prophecy refers to as the land of "Magog". The Land of MagogThey are spoken of militarily as the "King of the North".  Together the Bible says that Russia and the EU will invade the Middle East in the Last Days.  So Bible Students expect to see Germany and France taking a greater role in leading Europe.  It is also interesting to see Germany taking greater control of a continent they tried to take by war and failed.

Yet again we see in Todays News Headlines words that show how the Nations are fulfilling the latter day alignment of Nations as Prophesied by the Bible.
