Ah yes, the never ending ups and downs of 'hope' within the JWs. Every major news event forshadowed the big A. I recall the many 'discussions' w/ my mother leading up to Desert Storm, her telling me that they would bring back the draft, I would be in prison (cause I would refuse the draft right?), the war would ignite WWIII and the big A would come. Yep, isn't that exactly how it went down?
I also recall how 'big' it was in 1986 when the UN declared it the year of peace and security. Big Whup.
No difference here. Even IF, and this is a big if, this war were 'worse' for the US than the last one, it has nothing to do with the big A or god or anything. It is simply one more of human's many wars that have occured. Even in a worst case WWIII type deal, it's still a human endevour. If we nuke ourselves off this planet it's our ownv damn fault.
