Back in 2005 I was warning that going into Iraq could be a problem. My thoughts were not to go into Iraq but instead to use surgical low grade nuclear bombs on the capitals of Syria, Iran and Saudi Arabia because that is where the triangle of terror was at that time.
By destroying the above capitals Saddam would have caved-in just like Qaddafi and the Middle East would have surrendered to a devastating military blow like this. The Arabs and Persians in the Middle East only understand brute force. Talk and appeasement only show weakness in their mind set, it encourages more violence.
Look at how God handled these tribal peoples in Moses' day. We should have followed God's example and much of what we're seeing now could have been avoided. But it should be noted that what is happening now fits into The Lord's "last days" program and is bringing His purposes to pass at a very fast pace.
