Doomer Doug is reminded of World War One. After the murder of Archduke Ferdinand in Sarejevo the big European powers began a sequence of general mobilizations. Once all these were done they took on a life of their own and you got a war. In the last 45 days we have seen the following.
1. Israel and Hamas go at each other tooth and nail.
2. Syria begins a general mobilization of its missile forces and begins to load a small amount of Sarin gas into dispersal mode.
3. Iran announces it has biologically tipped missile warheads aimed at Israel.
4. Turkey and NATO deploy Patriot missiles on the Syrian Turkish border.
5. Egypt descends into chaos when Morsi makes a power play to make himself Pharaoh.
6. The US Senate passes a resolution to invade Syria under certain conditions.
7. North Korea begins the process of a launch test for a missile capable of hitting the US West coast.
8. China and Japan get into it over some islands nobody heard of before last month.
9. The US deploys significant naval and marine combat forces into the eastern Mediterranean off the Syrian coast.
10. Russia deploys significant naval and marine combat forces off the coast of Gaza. Russia then makes a port call at a Syrian port for the first time in years.
11. DOOMER DOUG LOOKS AT ALL THIS AND SEES THE HANDWRITING ON THE WALL.
12. In the context of the 12-21 Mayan prophecy this is all very disturbing news indeed.
The world is now on what can only be called a war footing. The situation in Syria is now so unstable that the combat use of sarin gas cannot be ruled out. this use could literally happen at any time in the next few days/weeks.
If it gets any deeper, Doomer Doug is going to need a snorkel
Other than that, have yourself a merry little Christmas. Oh wait, we don’t call it Christmas anymore do we?
