I agree that Daniel's prophecy is a repeat for his time and our time as well. the end of years was his time in the end of days was for future events in our day. Jesus spoke about Daniel because it referred to a later period of time. Daniel talks about Kingdom extending from his days down to our present system with the United States of America. In our time the US is not referred to as a metaphoric Greece.

That is correct but there could be more to the story. Bible prophecy can repeat. Also consider these 2 lines from Daniel 11.
6 And in the end of years
40 And at the time of the end
What is this end Daniel is talking about? Why did Jesus Christ refer to Daniel 11-31 in Matthew 24-15?
Daniel may be a repeating prophecy.
Also look at the first events of Daniel 8 and 11.
11-2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia
This accurately describes the 9-11 attacks.
19 And he said, Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.
20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.
21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.
22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.
23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.
What if "Greece" mentioned here is actually a end times United States? Daniel would be 3-0 presently.
