Alert: Opening Salvoes of the Second Signpost Right Now?

This Zero Hedge story reports the IRGC has launched ballistic missiles that have hit a US base in western Iraq.

The Dept. of Defense has made this statement:

“At approximately 5:30 p.m. (EST) on January 7, Iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles against U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. It is clear that these missiles were launched from Iran and targeted at least two Iraqi military bases hosting U.S. military and coalition personnel at Al-Assad and Irbil.

We are working on initial battle damage assessments.

In recent days and in response to Iranian threats and actions, the Department of Defense has taken all appropriate measures to safeguard our personnel and partners. These bases have been on high alert due to indications that the Iranian regime planned to attack our forces and interests in the region.

As we evaluate the situation and our response, we will take all necessary measures to protect and defend U.S. personnel, partners, and allies in the region.

Due to the dynamic nature of the situation, we will continue to provide updates as they become available.”

With the IRGC hitting US assets, will the US hit back harder, and then the IRGC hit back even harder? We will see very soon.

  1. Thank you d so much. May God continue blessing you with wisdom and discernment.

  2. We won’t know until it happens. I pray that that President Trump will seek God’s wisdom and that God would protect our troops!

  3. I just don’t think this is the start of the 2nd Signpost, Mark. Iran’s missile attack didn’t result in American casualties which is Trump’s “red line”. Iran did this little missile fit tonight to save face with the country’s hardliners.

    Trump should not retaliate over this, if he is truly smart, this is not worth it and just let it go, imo. We shall see.


  4. It begins in Ernest, sigh

  5. Julie,
    You are right. However, with Trump and his 52 targets it seems better than 50/50 its now. The rocket attacks may be now as well, to allow the boots on the ground to go out safely in a few weeks, i.e., spring.

  6. Comparing the number of missiles launched against targets in Israel to those that did significant damage has been disappointing to those who launched them. There have been many cases where missiles got through Israel’s defense systems, but were strangely diverted away from their targets, suggesting Isaiah 54:17: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper.”

    Now that missiles are being launched against American military bases, we will soon know whether or not the intended destruction is as devastating as the launchers desire. While the missiles have been hitting or not hitting their targets, Democrat leaders have been partying, gleefully hoping for as many American deaths as possible so that they can refer to them as evidence that President Trump should be removed from office.

    President Trump has led America to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel (moving our embassy there), Israel’s sovereignty over Golan Heights, and Israel’s legal rights to build settlements in the West Bank. Because God has used these American recognitions to bless Israel, perhaps some of Israel’s Isaiah 54:17 protection blessing will be extended to Israel’s best national friend.

    When Daniel prophesied that “no beasts might stand before him [Iran],” is America among those beasts? That America will not stop Iran’s invasions west, north, or south is evident from Daniel 8:4 (1985 Jewish Publication Society): “and there was none to deliver from his [Iran’s] power.” God may show President Trump a graceful way for American forces to leave the region.

  7. Mark,

    I thought you might find the following interesting. I came across this article a few minutes ago.

  8. Mark,

    Trump has a history of tweeting things and then walking them back…and more than once. I think the 52 targets was bluster and alpha male (which Trump certainly is!) posturing. I wouldn’t read a lot of meaning into that remark.


  9. And just like that it’s over(after Tumps speach)or at least dropped down to level 2, Sometimes as believers we like to get ahead of ourselves ( me included ) it’s easy to jump the gun and think this is it,but really these things happening is just birth pains that leed up to the second sign post.I would think there would be a lot more on the ground evidence of actual war?Mark in your book figure 10 – 2 you have the push out from Susa,you suggest they begin the charge from Susa in order too gorge you need boots on the ground, so once we see a build up in Susa this will indicate the push is on.
    IT took 5 month’s for troops to build up in Iraq war, so we will see Intel well in advance of actual push.

    I actually think Americans will have mostly pulled out,for whatever reason most likely economic concerns or some other tragedy (my speculation). I really think Iran has to have massive boots on ground and must destroy governments on the ground (both second and 3 sign posts),so eventually out of the ashes new governments must arise especially after 4 nations arise.
    But personally as economic situations decline wars are inevitable,so that would be one thing to watch, so for me boots in Susa will be a huge indicator of the push north,south ,west.

  10. Mike,
    I’m starting to think the IRGC will execute drone and missile attacks at the oil facilities and at US assets. Then, a few weeks later with all the chaos, they rush out with boots on the ground.

  11. Both Trump and Iran are so unpredictable that the second signpost could happen at any moment. Trump could attack all or some of his 52 targets, or Iran could attack all of the oil fields and pipe lines. Stay awake.
