    Reagan orders bombing of libyia target's kadaffi. I vividly remember calling my pioneer buddy "ok this is it get ready for WW3!" guess what nothing happened. 1st persian gulf war nothing happened. 2nd gulf war ditto. Now because trump bombed Syria it going to lead into the great tribulation. Just i was totally convinced 30 years ago. I see the same thing among the dubs today. Shower rinse repeat. Don't they ever learn?

    1st persian gulf war nothing happened.

    I had an elder telling me that the bigA was ahead, not even just around the corner, but only days/hours away

    I remember being in high school when the first Gulf War started. I was sitting at the dinner table with my family and my dad told us that Armageddon was about to begin. A year later I graduated from high school.

    Now, my oldest graduated high school 5 years ago. My next son is in high school.

    Where's Armageddon?

    At the start the 1st Gulf War, attendence soared as many were expecting "The End." The numbers dwindled down to the usually level after several months. The same thing happened with the 2nd Gulf War. After 9/11, the hall was filled with people for weeks afterwards but the apathy returned and attendence dropped. The invasion of Iraq and Afganistan brought many more inactive ones back for a cursory appearance for awhile. I don't think this will continue to occur after every global crisis or conflict. Crying wolf only lasts for so long....think about WWI, WWII, the Korean War, or the Vietnam War...Cuban Missle Crisis.....Makes me think of Billy Joel and "We didn't start the Fire."

    Things can take any direction. No one saw Trump coming, yet it happened. In the 80's terrorism was in its infancy, now they are trying for nukes. From where will they get it? Naturally from those countries that have nukes and are sympathizers to them. That means it is time that responsible nations would do something about this, which means countries like Russia, China will oppose that move.

    That means things can also spin out of control.



    True that things can always spin out of control. Just look at JW prophesies. This world will not last into the 21st century....yet here we are.

    Somehow we expected that a group formed 1850 years after Christ could somehow accurately predict God's plan for humanity.

    It's really just common sense to dismiss this organization for what it is.

    A lying cult.
