In fact the question of "wars in the end-times" has been mixing up two different issues, because the speculators have been getting their ideas from
two different sources.

When they get their information from the "other nations" prophecies which are NOT part of the Last Battle set, which is most of them, then the issue
is that they are taking speeches about the events of more than two thousand years ago and trying to apply them to the future. The second mistake is
the one that creates nine end-time wars, so that's the one I was trying to explain when I remarked on the nine end-time wars. So when you commented on
my remarks about the nine end-time wars, I naturally went back to discussing that mistake.
I've already referred to this thread series;
Prophecies against the nations
That is where I analysed the bulk of the "other nations" prophecies of both types, trying to explain the difference.
All I'm doing now is repeating what I said then.
The false approach of "trying to fix a sequence of events" frequently comes in company with the other false approach, "trying to fix a date for the
end-times", which I've criticised elsewhere;
The futility of date-setting
Psychology, rather than theology, is pushing speculators into creating detailed narratives out of Biblical material which wasn't intended for that

a detailed narrative of the wars of the future. We don't need one. We honestly don't
