CBN News 8 Aug. 2017: Pastor Robert Jeffress, a longtime evangelical backer of Donald Trump, just released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to take out Kim Jong-Un. When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary — including war — to stop evil. In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong-Un. I’m heartened to see that our president — contrary to what we’ve seen with past administrations who have taken, at best, a sheepish stance toward dictators and oppressors — will not tolerate any threat against the American people. When President Trump draws a red line, he will not erase it, move it, or back away from it. Thank God for a President who is serious about protecting our country.
Vox 8 Aug. 2017: War with North Korea very unlikely! Danish experts say war is unthinkable – and logically one would say that they are right.
But this is not logical: It´s a metaphysical struggle, as Putin mentor Alexandr. Dugin points out..
In his 2001 survey of 7 rogue governments to be taken out, General Wesley Clark did NOT mention North Korea
So What did Paul write to the Romans?
“Romans 13:1 – Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which is from God. The authorities that exist have been appointed by God. 2Consequently, the one who resists authority is opposing what God has set in place, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.…
13:4 – For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil”.
That is clear talk – but it is the talk of theologian Paul – not of Jesus Christ, who confirmed the 10 Commandments (Matth. 5:17-21)- including “Thou shallt not kill” – except in selfdefence (Luke 22:35-38).
Now the question is: Will Trump act in “selfdefence” – or has he provoked an evil nation with which he he should have nothing to do? Has the Corporate US ruled by the London City´s false Constitution for Washington DC of 1871 simply sought war with rogue state North Korea, because it does not have a Rothschild Bank – as it did with Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria – and soon Iran, too?
It is very dangerous and demagogic when the Bible is used as a pretext for imperialist politics of great powers. Left SS belt buckle: “God with us”!
When the New England settlers robbed the land of the Indians and exterminated them, the settlers compared the Indians with the Canaanites, who were killed and driven out on God’s or perhaps rather Joshua’s orders!
The Daily Mail 9 Aug. 2017:As Senator John McCain, who needs no explanation from anyone as to the perils of warfare, put it yesterday: ‘‘The great leaders I’ve seen don’t threaten unless they’re ready to act, and I’m not sure President Trump is ready to act. I take exception to the President’s comments because you gotta be able to do what you say you’re gonna do.’
He repeatedly taunted President Obama over his failure to act on his chemical weapons red line with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, saying it made America look weak – which it did.
Now he himself runs the risk of doing the same. Or worse, he feels compelled to unleash some ‘fire and fury’ to make himself look strong.
This is the point. Incalculable Pres. Trump is talking himself into a situation from which he cannot back out again without losing face. Besides, he is unter heavy pressure from the neocons and the military complex to launch a new war – which may be his final chance to avoid being ousted or killed.
Fortunately, no American offensive measures are to be seen
Trump should consider this more than twice – for North Korea is a hard nut to crack.
