HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE — When the Nighthawks fly out of Holloman Air Force Base, the world watches.
After all, in March 2003, during Operation Iraqi Freedom, the fighter jets dropped the first laser-guided bombs against dictator Saddam Hussein, who
subsequently fled and was later captured.
Now, according to Holloman Air Force Base Public Affairs, the 49th Fighter Wing at Holloman has “received a deployment order to support the United
States national defense objectives in the Western Pacific region.” Planned to be deployed are “some” of the F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighters, a
Holloman news release states, along with “support personnel.” All are “preparing to depart” the base. (snip)
You will note the newspaper article does not say where the Nighthawk Fighters are being deployed, only to the Western Pacific. That should be a
limited area but in today’s world, who knows.
This combined with the deployment of almost all our operational Naval Forces, some of which are undermanned; to the Pacific and parts unknown raise
the possibilities of military action taking place in the near future. Due to the extreme cost of keeping so many war machines in the field, war could
come sooner rather than later.
Where is anyone’s guess, but you have Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, and there is always North Korea perched on they’re nuclear tree like a vulture
waiting on something to die. Take your pick!
There is also the redeployment of our troops from S. Korea to the Middle East and rumors of more troop deployments, though this writer has not been
able to pin any of these other rumors down as of yet.
“And there shall be wars and rumors of wars.”
“For nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom” The actual Greek word for nation as used in the Bible is “ethnos” meaning ethnic. We
are seeing many ethnic wars, most religious in nature, at this date with more to come.
It appears war is coming as if it were an avalanche someone cast a snowball into starting the process. One does not amass armies and navies such as we
see world wide without the prospect of using them. No good will come of this and if it is war on a grand scale, you can depend upon a billion or more
to die. As world trade comes to a screeching halt, oil trade possibly ending in the Middle East, food production being held in reserve for warring
nations, you can bet the starvation horse of the Apocalypse will be mounted and ridden fourth.
One of the silliest most ignorant thoughts I have ever heard expressed is that the 400 plus different ethnic, language groups, cultural, religious,
and social groups of people in the world will unite and gather by the campfire, roast marshmallows, and sing Kumbaya. It can happen, but only by
extreme force. War is coming whether we want it or not, it is out of our hands as it has always been.
