WW III Began in 1979
[COMMENT: Some American history worth reading.
What are we going to do about it? What has God in mind for America?
NOTE: This article was posted in April 2006, but I just now
(Feb 07) received the following email comment:
Concerning your article, "WW III Started in 1979,"
there is also the issue of Sirhan Sirhan, a Palestinian immigrant
who murdered Robert Kennedy in 1968 because of Kennedy's support of
After he was convicted and sentenced to death in 1969,
Sirhan Sirhan said, "The real battle has just begun.”
Sirhan Sirhan's sentence was later reduced to life and
for the past 35 plus years, he has had the privilege of watching that
come to pass from his prison cell.
I believe that the Muslims are being manipulated by the
globalists. Or, that both think they can manipulate and use the other.
It may be that the globalists have a bear by the tail. Or, vice versa?
But the real question is, What is God up to? The rest is
all side track. And sadly, most Christians have no reasonable clue,
either on what God is up to, or what would be a truly Biblical, Godly strategy
for dealing with the steady destruction of civilization.
I think the Bombing in Oklahoma City should be part of
the terrorist plot as well. There are a lot of unanswered questions about that
can of worms. I found this very interesting. Thanks for
Subject: The War Began in 1979
Received this from a friend and it really makes you stop and think.
When WW III Started
This is not very long, but very informative You have to read the catalogue of
events in this
brief piece. Then, ask yourself how anyone can take the position that all we
have to do is bring our troops home from Iraq, sit back, reset the
snooze alarm, go back to sleep, and no one will ever bother us again. In case
you missed it, World War III began in November 1979... that alarm has been
ringing for years
US Navy Captain Ouimette is the Executive Officer at Naval Air Station,
Pensacola, Florida. Here is a copy of the speech he gave last
month. It is an accurate account of why we are in so much trouble today and
why this action is so necessary.
AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!
That's what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than
3,000 Americans were killed -AD) and maybe it was, but I think it
should have been "Get Out of Bed!" In fact, I think the alarm clock has been
buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll
over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.
It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious
upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American
Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil;
it was an attack that held the world's most powerful country hostage and
paralyzed a Presidency. The attack on this sovereign U. S. embassy set the
stage for events to follow for the next 25 years.
America was still reeling from the aftermath of the Vietnam experience and had
a serious threat from the Soviet Union when then, President Carter, had to do
something. He chose to conduct a clandestine raid in the desert. The ill-fated
mission ended in ruin, but stood as a symbol of America's inability to deal
America's military had been decimated and down sized/right sized since the end
of the Vietnam War. A poorly trained, poorly equipped and poorly organized
military was called on to execute a complex mission that was doomed from the
Shortly after the Tehran experience, Americans began to be kidnapped and
killed throughout the Middle East. America could do little to protect her
citizens living and working abroad. The attacks against US soil continued.
In April of 1983 a large vehicle packed with high explosives was driven into
the US Embassy compound in Beirut When it explodes, it kills 63 people. The
alarm went off again and America hit the Snooze Button once more.
Then just six short months later in 1983 a large truck heavily laden down with
over 2500 pounds of TNT smashed through the main gate of the US Marine Corps
headquarters in Beirut and 241 US servicemen are killed. America mourns her
dead and hit the Snooze Button once more.
Two months later in December 1983, another truck loaded with explosives is
driven into the US Embassy in Kuwait, and America continues her slumber.
The following year, in September 1984, another van was driven into the gate of
the US Embassy in Beirut and America slept.
Soon the terrorism spreads to Europe. In April 1985 a bomb explodes in a
restaurant frequented by US soldiers in Madrid.
Then in August 1985 a Volkswagen loaded with explosives is driven into the
main gate of the US Air Force Base at Rhein-Main, 22 are killed and the snooze
alarm is buzzing louder and louder as US interests are continually attacked.
Fifty-nine days later in 1985 a cruise ship, the Achille Lauro is hijacked and
we watched as an American in a wheelchair is singled out of the passenger list
The terrorists then shift their tactics to bombing civilian airliners when
they bomb TWA Flight 840 in April of 1986 that killed 4 and the most tragic
bombing, Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland in1988, killing 259.
Clinton treated these terrorist acts as crimes; in fact we are still trying to
bring these people to trial.These are acts of war.
The wake up alarm is getting louder and louder.
The terrorists decide to bring the fight to America. In January 1993, two CIA
agents are shot and killed as they enter CIA headquarters in Langley,
The following month, February 1993, a group of terrorists are arrested after a
rented van packed with explosives is driven into the underground parking
garage of the World Trade Center in New York City. Six people are killed and
over 1000 are injured. Still this is a crime and not an act of war? The Snooze
alarm is depressed again.
Then in November 1995 a car bomb explodes at a US military complex in Riyadh,
Saudi Arabia killing seven service men and women.
A few months later in June of 1996, another truck bomb explodes only 35 yards
from the US military compound in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. It destroys the Khobar
Towers, a US Air Force barracks,killing 19 and injuring over 500. The
terrorists are getting braver and smarter as they see that America does not
They move to coordinate their attacks in a simultaneous attack on two US
embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.. These attacks were planned with precision.
They kill 224. America responds with cruise missile attacks and goes back to
The USS Cole was docked in the port of Aden,Yemen for refueling on 12 October
2000, when a small craft pulled along side the ship and exploded killing 17 US
Navy Sailors. Attacking a US War Ship is an act of war, but we sent the FBI to
investigate the crime and went back to sleep.
And of course you know the events of 11 September 2001. Most Americans
think this was the first attack against US soil or in America. How wrong they
are. America has been under a constant attack since 1979 and we chose to hit
the snooze alarm and roll over and go back to sleep.
In the news lately we have seen lots of finger pointing from every high
officials in government over what they knew and what they didn't know. But if
you've read the papers and paid a little attention I think you can see exactly
what they knew. You don't have to be in the FBI or CIA or on the National
Security Council to see the pattern that has been developing since 1979.
I think we have been in a war for the past 25 years and it will continue
until we as a people decide enough is enough. America needs to "Get out of
Bed" and act decisively now. America has been changed forever.. We have to be
ready to pay the price and make the sacrifice to ensure our way of life
continues. We cannot afford to keep hitting the snooze button again and again
and roll over and go to sleep.
After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Admiral Yamamoto said "... it seems all we
have done is awakened a sleeping giant." This is the message we need to
disseminate to terrorists around the world.
This is not a political thing to be hashed over in an election year this is an
AMERICAN thing. This is about our Freedom and the Freedom of our children in
years to come.
So what are we voting Americans going to do about this train of tragedy?
