Anchored in the history of the return from the Diaspora, there is a close association between Israel and Egypt. Jeremiah ominously predicted that militant Israeli settlers returning early to Jerusalem under the auspices of the decree of the king of Babylon would openly challenge God's terms by turning to "Egypt" (armaments) for support. Emboldened by that alliance, they would further defy God by crossing borders not legally assigned to them to form settlements in "Egyptian" lands.

Personally, I didn't need someone to predict that America is going to lose the gulf war. I thought it was quite obvious. I mean, a terrorist plants a small roadside bomb costing about $100 and destroys a tank that costs about $1,000,000, or an RPG that shoots down say a Black hawk (as an example). Anyone can tell you that could probably beat the american military. Its too geared for fighting a "traditional" war, not one against terrorists.

when America is characterized as an Egypt or Sodom or Babylon
....all that symbolism just confuses me,
i gather that Sodom was a city almost 100% hedonistic & perverse
(according to someones code of morality)
Egypt, was punished by 10 plagues sent by an Israelite Tribal g-d,
so the ancient Hebrews/Israelites would get their freedom and Mosiac laws
I cannot make any connections with those historic antiquities and the present day USA...there are no parallels.
the actions, politics, and conflicts the US is engaged in the Mid East & the Near East, has no similarity to the 'power projections' that Egypt may have
had in ancient times...Egypts armies seen to have been for defense rather than conquests.
in the [Quote Box] you posted,
the Israel return to Jerusalem, from Babylon, and then trusting in self determination and armaments for self protection==> actually sounds more like zionism than anything else.
?but i'm still wondering how that availing oneself of armaments
equates with (Egypt)...
and just as the ancient returning Israelites became "Egypt",,,
that present day USA is also become a symbolic 'Egypt'
i reckon a person has to be there to understand whats being preached....
keep us/me posted nether-the-less
