God had just used the Iranian regime to give the United States grace in the form of time to clear their troops out of the Middle East. The United States military, however, with its collective mind on its mission it thought it needed to do, and protecting the Petrodollar in the background, was not paying attention.
Unknown to all, the God-ordained Second Signpost was approaching. From America’s perspective, the absolutely laughable idea that a bunch of heavily-armed religious zealots were about to impress the regime’s will on the Muslim peoples of the Middle East, was going to be reality.
As has happened many times to warring parties by the God of heaven, the US military seemed blinded to the precise strikes of the IRGC missiles from hundreds of miles away precisely on each every building, on January 8, nor had the implication of the precise drone strikes on the Saudi oil facilities on September 14 of the year before, truly sunk in.
The 40,000-ton US amphibious ship, with its larger ship group, had just passed through the Suez Canal and was now in the Red Sea, heading south. It would go around the Arabian Peninsula and be ready off the coast of Iran.
The US President’s pledge to bring the troops home from the Middle East seemed to be on hold as more and more US troops were added to the numbers already there. Iran’s actions in the last several months were not encouraging the US military to leave, but were acting as a flame draws a moth, as the number of US troops swelled from 40,000, to 60,000 in 2018, to now 80,000.
The General on board the ship told the Marines, “You’re here because I requested that you come. I’m not sure how long you’re going to stay in the theater. We’ll work that out as we go ahead. Could be quite a while, could be less than that, just don’t know right now.”
“Iran continues to pose a very real threat. I do believe that they are deterred right now, at least from state-on-state actions by our response. And so I think that while that threat remains, I think we’re in a period where they’re certainly not seeking to escalate anything.”
“Iran is very hard to read, so I would say the fact that things are quiet for a while does not mean that necessarily things are getting better.”
“You need to be ready because I may need to employ you on very short notice and on some very difficult missions,” the General concluded.
Yes, “Iran is very hard to read.” The Persian ram portrayed as an animal butting and charging will be shocking for whoever is in his path, as the world is unprepared and unaware of the regime’s devious plans. Yes, it will be a surprise, even for those who witnessed the drone attack of September 14 and the missile attack of January 8.
And yes, the General saying, “I may need to employ you on very short notice and on some very difficult missions,” is absolutely correct. If the Second Signpost is real, it will be very short notice, and very difficult.
No, the scenario presented up to this point is not fictional, it is true.
The 40,000-ton ship is the amphibious assault ship, the USS Bataan. The General is the top commander of CENTCOM, General Kenneth Frank McKenzie. He and his ship group did indeed pass through the Suez Canal, and he did say what is quoted above, both to his troops and to reporters.
We can see the US military response to the grace period: bring in more troops. This is America’s answer to God’s grace. If the Second Signpost is reality, this cannot end well for America, neither in the Middle East militarily, or at home economically.
