''We'll probably be at war this summer''

''In the year King Moshiach is revealed, nations will be provoke one another... '' [Yalkut Shimoni]



Military posturing is quietly reaching new extremes in Europe, the Mediterranean and the South China Sea. And the provocative bluster has just reached new heights. 

The source was anonymous. But the mouthpiece has a measure of credibility. High profile military analyst and former US Naval War College lecturer John Schindler tweeted last week: “Said a senior NATO (non-US) GOFO to me today: ‘We’ll probably be at war this summer. If we’re lucky it won’t be nuclear.’ Let that sink in.”

The warning comes as Europe engages in some of its biggest ever war games — right on Russia’s front door. It’s a deliberate ploy, intended to remind Moscow of the consequences of its duplicitous invasion of Ukraine.

Half a world away, the “w” word was mentioned again yesterday. This time in an editorial by a Chinese state controlled paper. Said the Global Times: “If the United States’ bottom line is that China has to halt its activities, then a US-China war is inevitable in the South China Sea.”

High-profile US Billionaire investor George Soros told the World Bank last week: “If there is conflict between China and a military ally of the United States, like Japan, then it is not an exaggeration to say that we are on the threshold of a third world war.”

Yes, there are serious volcanic and earthquake happenings daily in an increased amount. Much that has been lying dormant- not just the "we have a computer and therefore we know more of the usual."

I think we are fulfilling our "obligation" for wars with mere speech and posturing. Which is great! I don't think there will be big wars, but rather a natural redemption empowered by spreading the Light of the Torah.

Ronnie, how could you talk about a normal redemption when the torah and also the rebbe says that the geulah will follow the same pattern as the exodus and we will witness nissim even bigger than at yetziat mitzrayim ?!
