IMO can't hurt, although whose to say God didn't plan or force these events, etc. to occur in order to induce a Nation(s) to change ways or foster something better - IN PAIN THERE IS GAIN???
* TOPIX, INDIAN DEFENCE FORUM > PEOPLE'S DAILY CALLS FOR CHINA-INDIA [Strategic and Military] ALLIANCE AGZ US, i.e. a Sino-Indian "Strategic Partnership" for East and Pan-Asia Security.
[YOOHOO, FBI-CIA-NSA-DIA, ONCE AGAIN "RISE OF THE RED-STAR TURBAN" here].

D *** NG IT, IS THAT "INTER-MUSLIM", BOOKER
... ... I'M COMING DOWN THERE, BOOKER!
Once again, the GWOT + WAR FOR OWG-NWO = as much an Muslim-vs-Muslim struggle for Ideo + Geopol control and dominance, etc. of the Muslim World as US-vs-Radical-Islam due to 9-11.
* TOPIX > "ARAB SPRING" WILL TURN INTO [Global]TSUNAMI", widin 10 years [Year 2022?].
ARTIC > CONFLICT IN SYRIA = akin to the "WEST FIGHTING EAST".
The US-West = JudeoChristianity have the Global Power Ball now, but oer time may or may not lose it to up-n-coming rival [Nuclear] Islam, etc. as per the normal "Great Game of Geopolitics" aka SUBSTITUTION OF NATIONS [One(s) by Other(s)].
Once again, to paraph SUN TZU = THE ENEMY IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE STRENGTH OR WEAKNESS OF YOUR SPEAR/SWORD, YOUR SHIELD, ANDOR YOUR CAMP.
Its not Islam's, etc. fault iff one abandons God, reduces his own Armies and Nukes to levels dangerous to national + geopol existence, or no longer like sex ... ... @etc.
* SAME > VIETNAM ASKS TAIWAN TO CANCEL ITS LIVE-FIRE MILEX ON VIETNAM-CLAIMED TAIPING ISLAND [Nanshas].
