This is just another tool for the Watchtower Society to misuse. They bring it on when things start improving in the world, making people think the end is nigh when things are going well. So, it initiates threat of force when things are going well, no wars of signficance are going, and people seem to be prospering.
But let there be a terror strike, major war, or disaster, and they immediately "forget" about this. They didn't say a word about it during Sept 11, 2001. But they were going ballistic in the late 1990s when things seemed reasonably stable. Of course, they program the flock to disregard it totally any time there is a big storm, war, disease epidemic, economic problems, crime wave, or terror attack because it means the end is yet some distance away. First they are going to have to win the war on terror. They will also have to achieve at least some semblance of a stable economy and low or declining crime rates in order to declare peace and security. They are going to have to get rid of our regulatory agencies that strike terror in our citizens and impede progress, so that we may have a semblance of peace and security. And that is probably not going to happen for a while, since it has to be worldwide and not just here.
