War and Conflict

War and Conflict

Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
(Luke 21:10)

The Bible declares that in the last days there will be a proliferation of war and strife.  Nations will be unable to reach lasting peaceable agreements with one another leading to outbreaks of war and vast bloodshed.

In a city of ever-shifting front lines, Libyans confront their worst fighting in years
The Washington Post

He rushed back, he said, to find “blood everywhere.” His mother was face down, her back riddled with shrapnel. “The other old lady was torn into pieces,” recalled Hami, 36. For nearly two months, this besieged North African capital of more than 1 million people has been ensnared in its worst episode of violence since the toppling of Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi almost eight years ago.

The looming 100-year US-China conflict
Financial Times

The US president has the gut instincts of a nationalist and protectionist. Others pro...
