World events change on a daily basis, so if you want to make some point, you need to participate in your own threads. One thing for sure since 2011 things have changed all over the middle east. All I know is terrorism and terrorist nations have to be defended against, be it Israel, beheading, executions, genocide of Christians in Iraq, it is a long list. The common denominator is radical Islamics , who control main stream Muslims, rule countries, and oppress societies.
You want to fit what is happening with Revelations, I am not that well versed to really say. What are signs of the beast, maybe it is in the heart of the middle east, they region is certainly got Satan in it. But you could say the same thing about many parts of the world, and it all looks like we are closer to Armageddon everyday. We all thought Armageddon was going to happen with Sadaam and the "Mother of all battles". It didn't happen, and who knows what will make it happen. Hamas and Israel? Genocides of Jews and other infidels? India an Pakistan 5 minutes apart with nukes? North Korea? ISIS in Iraq and hitting Syria to get them? The Ukraine and confronting Russia? The Drug Cartels in Mexico/central america? Racial unrest a heartbeat from National riots in Missouri? Killing our planet with overpopulation and environmental problems.
Hate and intolerance may be the only sign we need, not a number on someones head somewhere. Self destructive behavior, ignorance, greed for profit at the cost of killing the Garden of Eden we were given. Pretty simple in probably the first few pages of Genesis, caring for this planet, living in Harmony, obeying the 10 Commandments.
