UPDATE: Also this news from ABC tonight:
Nightmare in Libya: Thousands of Surface-to-Air Missiles Unaccounted For
“The White House announced today it planned to expand a program to secure and destroy Libya’s huge stockpile of dangerous surface-to-air missiles, following an ABC News report that large numbers of them continue to be stolen from unguarded military warehouses.” [emphasis mine]
Sigh. The civil war in Libya has spawned a free-for-all plundering of stockpiled military weapons of mass destruction, it seems.
Libya is a Gog Magog nation, a nation that Ezekiel 38:5 prophesies will attack Israel in the last days. This means it is aggressive, and it has the means to join a coalition that includes Turkey which has the second largest army in NATO, and Russia, America’s traditional counter-superpower.
While all eyes have been in Iran’s nuclear program, Syria’s chemical program, and Israel’s diplomatic program, 10,000 barrels of uranium yellowcake was discovered in Sahba, Libya- unguarded. Iran is reportedly very interested in what is happening in the area, which was unsecured until two days ago. Many barrels are open. If this material, which is worth a fortune on the black market, fell into the wrong hands it would be devastating.
Yellowcake is used in the preparation of uranium fuel for nuclear reactors, for which it is smelted into purified UO2 for use in fuel rods for pressurized heavy-water reactors and other systems that use natural unenriched uranium. (source)
AL Jazeera English has the story, which opens with a few sentences and continues on video. The prophecy in Revelation 6:4 that peace will be taken from the earth is getting easier and easier to see nearing.
