(THE SUN UK) – The U.S. Air Force is seeing the “highest activity” of Russian aircraft over Alaska since the Cold War, a top U.S. commander has said. The increased military activity in the area is attributed to Russia’s expanding activities, according to Air Force generals. Top U.S. commander, Air Force Lt. Gen. David Krumm,…

As the new White House administration seeks to shift US policy concerning the Middle East, it has removed key military assets during a time in which military pressure is mounting from the Islamic Republic.
In what was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Biden administration is moving military assets out of the Gulf region at a significant rate, according to a report this week. The removal of military interests from the region is reportedly for several reasons, including the refocusing on other regions of the world. However, there’s no question that the Biden administration has zero intentions of working with the Saudis like the former administration.
According to the report, the White House has “removed at least three Patriot antimissile batteries from the Gulf region, including one from Prince Sultan Air Base in Saudi Arabia, that had been put in place in recent years to help protect American forces.”
Continuing, it revealed that more assets could soon be departing the region, saying, “Some capabilities, including an aircraft carrier and surveillance systems, are being diverted from the Middle East to answer military needs elsewhere around the globe…other reductions are under consideration.”
This move from the Biden administration comes when the Iranian-sponsored Houthi Rebels have been increasing their attacks on the Kingdom via ballistic missiles and explosive drones. They have often targeted Aramco oil facilities and civilian airports.
Despite the administration’s said commitment to building a relationship with the Saudis, removing these key military interests comes at a very compromising time.
Pompeo: When China Sees Dems ‘Deeply Tied’ to BLM ‘They Sense That America May Well Be in Decline’ – Must Defend America’s Greatness
By: Ian Hanchett, Breitbart News, 19 Mar 2021:
On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reacted to the exchange between American and Chinese officials earlier in the week and said that Chinese officials “mentioned Black Lives Matter as part of the reason they think American democracy is in decline, those are running buddies of Marxist-Leninists all around the world.
And so, when they see a Democrat Party that is so deeply tied to the Black Lives Matter movement, I think they sense that America may well be in decline.”
Pompeo said, “I would have called it out for exactly what it is, this idea somehow that America isn’t a beacon of democracy around the world, that’s just nonsense and it is crazy for them to make that attack. … They mentioned Black Lives Matter as part of the reason they think American democracy is in decline, those are running buddies of Marxist-Leninists all around the world. And so, when they see a Democrat Party that is so deeply tied to the Black Lives Matter movement, I think they sense that America may well be in decline. I would have made clear that America stands for protecting its own. I would have reiterated our views about America first. We would have talked about the greatness and the exceptionalism of our nation, and we would have called them out for what they did to the world with this virus that has destroyed millions of lives. We’ve lost millions of lives and billion dollars worth of wealth. It is unacceptable that the administration didn’t push back in that way.”

The facility was believed to be attacked via a Mossad operation last year, which led to significant damage being dealt; The IAEA reported that Tehran is using the IR-4 centrifuge to enrich uranium.
According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which operates as the United Nation’s nuclear watchdog, the Islamic Republic is now enriching uranium via advanced IR-4 centrifuges at its Natanz nuclear facility. In so doing, Tehran is further breaching the terms set in the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran nuclear deal.
Under the terms of the JCPOA, Iran is only permitted to use the 1st generation IR-1 centrifuges.
In its recent statement, first reported by Reuters, the IAEA said, “On 15 March 2021, the Agency verified that Iran began feeding the cascade of 174 IR-4 centrifuges already installed at FEP (fuel enrichment plant) with natural UF6.”
They added, “In summary, as of 15 March 2021, Iran was using 5,060 IR-1 centrifuges installed in 30 cascades, 522 IR-2m centrifuges installed in three cascades and 174 IR-4 centrifuges installed in one cascade, to enrich natural UF6 up to 5% U-235 at FEP.”
Interestingly enough, this particular facility was dealt heavy damage last summer after a fire broke out, which was speculated by many to be an act of sabotage. The suspicion grew due to a series of similar incidents throughout the season, specifically in Iran. However, it’s clear that Tehran has been committed to restoring this facility.
Though the Islamic Republic began increasing its violations of the deal after the Trump administration withdrew in 2018, these breaches have only increased all the more in recent months. Furthermore, Tehran intends to install a second cascade of the IR-4 at the Natanz facility in the future.

In my estimation the end times, as the Bible calls it, began when a tiny piece of ground in the Middle East was given back to the Jewish people. On May 14 1048 the nation of Israel was born. Many including myself the term is reborn, but for those who only trace history back to the day they were boren, I will leave it as it is. Biblically God gave sure words of Prophecy through Isaiah, Daniel and other prophets in the Old Testament to that fact of Israel becoming a great nation in the last days. The fig tree shall blossom and the desert bloom like a rose. To anyone who does not believe in God, I point to Israel.
For those of us who think the world revolves around our Western culture and nations, think again. The center of it all is Jerusalem in Israel. We are but bit players in the grand scheme of what is termed “The Last Days.” As we look back on that day in 1948 and realize President Truman’s signature fulfilled Bible Prophecy found in Isaiah 66:8 “Shall a nation be brought forth in one day? Shall a nation be brought forth in one moment. The resounding answer is yes!

Folks this is a dangerous game that is being played in our government by the pretend president. He is purposely distancing himself from Israel. Pray for Israel and our rotten government.
