Doomsday in Syrian Town of Homs & the Rest of the World

Reading the reports coming out of Syria, any good Bible reader will be reminded of images described in the last book of the New Testament, Revelation. From the Huffington Post:

The dramatic scenes come a day after activists reported “the sky raining shells” after more than a week of violence.
Several ‘Citizen journalists’ working with the protest network Avaaz said that more than 25 shells had exploded in half an hour on Tuesday morning.
“It is as though the sky is raining shells,” said one resident known as Basil.
“We can no longer see the sky in Baba Amr. We are covered by a thick blanket of smoke from the bombs.”
Residents said that communications had been cut in Homs and surrounding areas, and that gunfire was heard nearby.

The sky is raining shells. I can’t imagine the horror. I suppose an Iraqi hunkered down in Baghdad at the start of Shock & Awe might have an idea on even a grander scale of horror than what’s going on in Syria. Yet, American officials who were in full support of raining fire and gore on Baghdad sharply condemned Syria’s violence toward its own people.

As if it’s somehow better to destroy hundreds of thousands of people in a different country because of some faulty, manufactured evidence of weapons of mass destruction. Of course, if by now you haven’t condemned the obliteration of Iraq and its people, mostly by American force, then you can still be David Frum’s friend.

Obviously, if you’re a human being, with a human heart, you already understand that murdering any other human being, whether by predator drone, cruise missile, by use of the army, or air force is fundamentally evil, and will be repaid to those people responsible for their spiritual decay and gratuitous violence.

The top leaders of Israel, the US, and the UK are pounding their fists for war with Iran, even as Iran seems to have crouched itself into the only corner left. Our leaders are ratcheting up the rhetoric about possible terror attacks inside of the US, carried out by Iran — as if Iran really wants to have it out with America. Ed Asner warns us of a possible false flag attack.

I will leave you with a quote from the Revelation as told to us by St John the Divine, but not because I think you don’t know what the Bible has to say about Doomsday, but because I like quoting the Good Book:

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
