The Iraq Withdrawal… Why Now?

Clinton to Iran: Don’t misread departure from Iraq

Washington has long worried that meddling by Iran, a Shiite Muslim theocracy, could inflame tensions between Iraq’s Shiite-led government and its minority Sunnis, setting off a chain reaction of violence and disputes across the Mideast.

News from The Associated Press

I have harped about what I call the Luciferian Dialectic for eight years now.  For those of you who are new to this BLOG it goes like this.

Conflict: 911 attacks.  It doesn’t matter who is really behind them because they are the initial conflict that sets the rest of the dialectic in motion,

Counter Conflict: The US and her allies go into Afghanistan, but shortly afterward we attack Iraq.

Synthesis:  We may be on the verge of seeing this as the US has suddenly announced it’s withdrawal of troops from Iraq.

The question that I would pose is why now?  With the “Arab Spring” toppling one government after another, Syria seems to be next on the dead dictator list.  However, Syria is a different ball game all together as Bashar Assad has threatened to bomb Tel Aviv if he is sanctioned or attacked in any way.  Meanwhile the bloodshed continues with as many as 3,o00 + Syrians killed by their own government.

In my opinion the withdrawal of US troops couldn’t come at a worse time… unless for those who are pulling the strings this fits their timing perfectly.  Let me explain.  The Iraqi government is under the thumb of Iran as President Malaki is  Shia Moslem.  Combined with this is the 30,000 troops in Iraq that are loyal to Iran.
Added to this is the continual sectarian violence – Shia Moslem against Sunni Moslem –  and the situation could spin out of control, which is what I believe is being orchestrated and is part of the end game of our withdrawal.

So what happens next?

Here’s a scenario for your consideration and it may be a combination of these that we will see.

1.  Syria attacks Israel who then responds by attacking and destroying Damascus – read the Isaiah 17 prophecy here. Or Israel attacks HEZBOLLAH which then prompts a response by Syria and Iran.

2.  Other Arab nations join the fray and war spreads throughout the region.

3.  Iran attacks closing the Straights of Hormuz and the Gate of Tears which shoots the price of oil into the stratosphere – this topples our already fragile economy.

4.  Iraq is attacked by the Iranians and the Malaki government folds.

5. Peace is established and the King of Jordan sets up a constitutional monarchy in Iraq and is hailed throughout the world as a peace maker.  He then gives Jordan to the Palestinians thereby solving the 60-year-old Middle East conundrum between Israel and the Palestinians.

6.  Abdullah then gives Israel part of the temple mount in Jerusalem to build the third temple.

While all of this might sound like fiction, it is a very real scenario and one that I believe could happen sooner than later.

In closing today’s post:  The Middle East is more unstable than I have ever seen it and at some point the pent-up animosity toward Israel will explode.  With the US troops out of Iraq the deterrent that has more than likely held Iran in check will no longer be there.  In the end if what I propose comes to pass then we have witnessed a Luciferian Dialectic or as Watchers 3 poses. the Fingerprints of the Supernatural.

  1. I read once that those in Heaven would come to us that are living in this time to ask what it was like to live in the end times. It has always stuck with me. It is more than a little nerve-wracking at times, until I remember who really is control of all things and this has been predestined to take place since the beginning. Sometimes my jaw drops at the audacity and transparency of the enemy’s ploys. Other times I’m amazed at how accurate texts from over 2,000 years ago can be so accurate. As we were taught to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. On Earth as it is in Heaven.”

  2. The Iraqi withdrawal is nothing more than to score browny points for re-election or what will seem as a re-election. A fascist will do whatever it takes to get to the top.

  3. I would also mention that Israel will inherit large pieces of land after the war of Psalm 83 and they will be at peace.

    What President Obama is doing is interesting. It makes no sense to pull out of Iraq. So is he pulling out of Iraq as a campaign promise or is he doing it because he needs the troops else where.

    Alex Jones swears that he has inside sources that prove that Israel will attack Iran within the next two weeks.

    I dont know if King Hussein has the power or the collective bargaining with other middle eastern countries to pull off what you suggest LA. We shall see though.

    I personally believe that something is coming in the next two months that we cant fathom. Maybe the return of the long awaited great ufo deception. Maybe the collapse of the global monetary system. Maybe a 9.0 earthquake somewhere in the united states. Maybe a terrorist attack here in the US. I dont know but I have felt in my heart for a long time coming. Its coming soon.

    • I kind of agree richard, I’ve had dreams the past couple months (two actually) about chaos, and destruction.

      I don’t put much stock in it, but it was a bit different than a dream.

      More details in my blog,

      LA, I completely disagree with you….

      Just kidding! Thanks for opening back up, that’s another prayer answered.

  4. We’ve kept our troops in Korea since the 1950’s. Troops in Europe, Japan, all over the world, but yet we pull out of Iraq.

    My guess is that Israel is going to missile attack the Iranian Nuclear facilities, and our US Troops might be in harm’s way.

    Maybe Israel attacks Egypt lst. As Egypt is not listed in the EZ Chs 38 and Ch 39 prophecies.

    The Iranians were descendants from The Sons of Japheth, while the Iraqis were the descendants of Shem. I don’t if that
    Racial Division matters or not.

    Iraq seems to be saying “Good Riddance” to us.

    None of the Arab nations are listed in Daniel’s “The Times of the Gentiles” Power Systems, neither any Chinese…and neither is our U.S.A. or the U.K. listed.

  5. And, now maybe Iran will cause a big disturbance real soon, which causes our military to stay there…Is this laughable or am I just sick! Iran stops the President’s Plans!

    After reading the others posts, Obama’s plan is for the betterment of Obama, lst of all…and he is getting bashed.

  6. Isaiah 17 is quite amazing, as it projects exactly how Israel is viewed by the surrounding nations today, stating:
    “The oracle concerning Damascus. Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city and will become a fallen ruin…. Now in that day the glory of Jacob will fade… it will be like one gleaning ears of grain in the valley of Rephaim… In that day their [the Arab nations] strong cities will be like forsaken places in the forest, or like branches which they abandoned before the sons of Israel; and the land will be a desolation” (Isaiah 17:1, 4-5, 9).
    The Lord has not forsaken Israel… The nation of Israel is KEY in these perilous last days.

  7. Libyan Leader Declares Nation Islamic, Sharia Law to be Implemented.

    Libya’s new leader declared his country’s liberation Sunday and set out plans for the future with an Islamist tone. In a televised address, transitional leader Mustafa Abdul-Jalil declared his nation will adopt Sharia law as the basis of government, and immediately announced the canceling of all bank loans in violation of such law. The announcement may prove a serious setback for the Obama administration, which had promised support for a post-Gadhafi democratic Libya.

    Here is a pic that speaks for itself.

  8. L A, this may be the way the U.S. and TPTB has to depose the Iranian regime, and to bring on a globalized economy and a one world government.

    BEWARE…because it will come at a very great cost (WW3) as every nation that has a stake in “Middle East Oil” will be there defending their own “Critical National Interests” – Russia/China/SCO who sides with Iran et-al vs. NATO and allied nations.

    A possible scenario:

    Upon U.S. departure, a vacuum in Iraq will exist. From such a withdrawal, anarchy would break out in Iraq and spread across the Shi’ite-Sunni world…Not many of us today will realize and dare to predict that the Shiite-Sunni Civil war in Iraq today bloody as it is, presages a much greater and bloodier regional Shiite-Sunni and Arab-Persian war in the Middle East. If war breaks out between Sunni/Shia nations, it will surley see Israel having to defend itself from them in the fray.

    This war that will unfold over the next twelve months will be by far the most bloodiest landmark in the history of War. This will be a war that will tear the Islamic world into two irreconcilable halves and will bring about the destruction of nations. A war that will not start formally or be a declared one like a conventional war, but one that will be marked by increasingly bold and destructive terrorists attacks on Shiite targets, first in Iraq and later across the Islamic world. Before it is over the entire M.E. and the world will be at war.

    The Shiites have displayed remarkable restraint so far, but the only reason for this is that they know that Iraq is their inheritance by sheer force of numbers through which they will ride over the Sunnis. They want to strengthen their grasp over Iraq, till the time that they can act independently of the Coalition forces. Once they cross that critical mass, the Shiites will shed their restraint and go on a merciless offensive against the Sunnis.

    During this time Israel will be attacked by Iranian proxy Hezbollah/Syria/Lebanon. But the attack will not only be limited to Israel, but anywhere in the world where Jews live and work (schools, malls, businesses etc.) Damascus will be destroyed as well as other cities in the M.E. and indeed across the world.

    Arise the supposed peacemaker who arises from the Middle East to bring peace to Islam…with a plan for global peace and peace with Israel. Then he shall confirm a covenant with many…

  9. The U.S. has withdrawn our ambassador to Syria (8 hours ago).

    Syria has withdrawn its ambassador to the U.S. (2 hours ago).

    Turkish tanks are on the move in Northern Iraq. (1 hour ago).

  10. Obama said he’d bring the troops home during his 1st election campaign. Now its close to election time again and people suck up whatever the media feeds them, including Fox News. If your resume is killing Bin Laden and Gaddafi, providing a social security increase, and bringing home the troops, who is going to beat that? I’d add the bailouts, but that was Bush’s one last screw you to the American people. Obama just let it slide through.

    • It’s definitely a re-election tactic, but I don’t think it’s going to help him that much. The American people seem to be fed up with the politics of the Bushes, Clintons, and Obama. Even Bin Laden didn’t help him that much, which I think Steve Pieczenik is right about bin Laden dying back around 2004… I think Obama made it up to try to help him in the polls… the he went to war with Libya to take-down Gaddafi as an attempt at the same thing when it didn’t work with bin Laden… and now he’s attempting it by bringing the Iraqi troops home at a worse time than it would have been years earlier.
      Politicians… ugh!

    • Michael is spot on with Bin Laden. There was something that wasn’t right about the whole thing. The burial at sea was just bizzare.

  11. The complete pull out does immediately two things: helps Obama in the re-election and causes him short term favor in the Middle East. However, troops will come back to no jobs and rotten economy and the Middle East will blame him for pulling out of Iraq when the war between Iran and Iraq is waged. There is too much bad blood between the two, and it will be fast and bloody.

  12. The whole earth will rejoice soon, as written by Ezekiel in chapter 35
    as it describes the coming battle between Israel
    and the enemies ON HER BORDER. “the borders of wickedness”

    They are NOT LISTED in Ezekiel 38-39 ….. ?

    This coming battle will be mistaken as the battle of armagedon,
    which will actually be 7 yrs, or 2,520 days from the confirmation of the covenant.

    The Holy Spirit is about to remove His foot from the serpent’s head.
    and he comes as a savior with lying signs and wonders.


    The RESTRAINER will be removed,
    “THEN shall that wicked BE REVEALED.”

    First the nuclear war … Damascus GONE
    Egypt uninhabitable for 40 years

    REDEMPTION COMES for believers
    DECEPTION comes on the unbelievers

    The space brothers will come, with lying signs and wonders

    The covenant CONFIRMED for 7 years

    Iran/Persia Ezekiel 38-39 will be held back by a covenant of peace.

    my desire is to drew attention to Ezekiel 35, because everyone seems to rush to Ezekiel 38-39 and miss “while the whole earth rejoices” part.

    • RH, you nail it with this comment. Yes, WWIII is coming, but there will be a huge supernatural event, most likely space brothers, who will come and save the Israel from total destruction. I also believe that a false Christ will be part of that event. Out brethren in Israel are in trouble, because they rejected Christ the first time, but they won’t reject him again, even if its a farce.

  13. Interesting verse in Hosea 4:3 (whose chapters 4-14 Chuck Missler, by the way, claims as being very relevant to the US)…

    “That is why your land is not producing; it is filled with sadness, and all living things grow sick and die; the animals, the birds, and even the fish begin to disappear.” (LB)

  14. I really have missed all the commentary on this blog because even though sometimes we get off topic, I feel the Lord’s leading in it. God bless each one as we watch together.

  15. The Obama administration wants war to break out and escalatein the middle-east, so the U.S. can stand with Israel (who they hate) and we can both get nuked off the maps together by Russia and China. Hm? Sound plausible?

  16. Haijs:
    Thank you so much for putting up that link to lookupfellowship. I haven’t been there in awhile and that article was really interesting. I hadn’t heard anything about this ecumenical get together and never heard of this prince guy…who by the way, does look kinda like Jesus walking next to the pope in that one picture. What times we live in. It’s almost unreal how much happens each day that just shouts we are near the end and yet everyone keeps living as LA says as if it is “business as usual”…the whole world is blind to the enemy and his plan and sad to say, even the church in most circles are alseep as well. THanks again for that really good article. Amen!

    • Hi Lisa!
      There are many pieces of the puzzle that are out there it takes a very connected community like both LA’s and LUF blogs to bring it together in a much more visible picture of what is happening. And what is happening is on schedule and not a moment too early or late. I for one am grateful to our Lord Jesus that He allows us to use tools like the Internet to find the pieces and share them with one another. Praise Him for the work He does through us all to encourage one another in these times! James 1:4
