Rumors of War


"Therefore suddenly shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.  These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue...." Proverbs 6:15-17

"As the welfare state collapses, we see the emergence of brute conflict between those who desire order and those who don't." The Invisible Committee, the Coming Insurrection, p. 6

Today, the European Union won the Nobel Peace Prize.  This is bad.  This is an arrogant, prideful move that future historians will mock.

It's not a secret that Europe has been on fire for two years.  Greece is a mess.  Spain is almost as bad.  France is teetering.  Great Britain is crippled by political correctness.  The only thing (barely) holding the situation together is the grace of German taxpayers.  That won't last forever.

Against this backdrop, the European elite chose to hold a self-congratulatory circle jerk award itself the Nobel Peace Prize.

You can't make that up.

This is the type of arrogance you see before major wars.  Suicides are skyrocketing, people are eating trash, yet the leaders are throwing themselves a big party.  Comparisons to Emperor Nero are apt.

The situation in the Middle East gets attention, but Europe is almost as bad.  Nazis are rising in Greece.  The President of France is a Marxist.  When the European house of cards finally collapses, the situation will be dire.  Pray for leadership with discernment.

War is coming; whether we like it or not.

  1. This is f***ing scary, pardon my language. While at first the Euro was a good idea in theory (a lot of travelers often go from one country to the other, and it keeps them from having to constantly convert their money from francs to DMs to lira to drachmas by putting certain countries in Europe under one currency), in practice, it's destroying Europe. Greece is a perfect example. They need to get out of the Euro zone and declare bankruptcy NOW, before it gets worse.
