Lindsey Graham after meeting with Mattis: ‘The war is moving to Africa’


Washington Examiner: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Friday that U.S. global counter-terrorism operations are set to expand and become more aggressive following a meeting with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about troop deaths in Niger.

That will include more operations in Africa where four soldiers were killed this month after being ambushed by Islamic State-aligned fighters and a loosening of the military’s rules of engagement to allow the killing of those considered part of a terrorist group, even if they do not present an immediate threat to the U.S., Graham said after emerging from his Senate office with Mattis…… read more

Opinion by Bible Prophecy Tracker: October 4, 2017 headline: “4 US Troops Killed in Niger” left a lot of questions …

Where is Niger? Why are US troops there? How is it that US forces could be overwhelmed? Is Niger the next Bengazi?  What is the US going to do about it?

Aside from the political noise surrounding a phone call made by President Trump to the widow of US Army Sgt. La David Johnson (second from left), Niger is next door to Mali and Mali was a topic of several posts we did in 2013 regarding the spread of al Qaeda forces in North Africa…. read more

WND, Jan 23, 2013: “Recent attacks by Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb in northern Mali may well  represent an overall strategy by al-Qaida central – headed by Ayman al-Zawahiri – to build a stage in northern Africa to launch attacks into Western Europe.”

On October 4, 2017 out post “Turkey Opens Its Largest Military Base In Somalia” exposed the Turkish influence on the Gog Magog nations of Cush (Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia) and Put (Libya). It is no longer a mystery as to why these nations join in the invasion with Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Niger, like most of North Africa, is over 90% Muslim, and it could be that Ezekiel’s prophecy “and the many people with you” (Ez. 38:9) could mean additional North African nations in Gog Magog.

Front Page Mag provides the answer as to why US troops were overwhelmed:

“It wasn’t President Trump who deployed our soldiers to Niger. That was Obama’s doing.  American soldiers in Iraq and Syria were put in the same strange situation of being deployed in a war zone without a combat mission.  

Except to defend themselves. 

Or as Obama put it, “The recently deployed forces have deployed with weapons for the purpose of providing their own force protection and security.” 

Lindsey Graham:“The war is headed to Africa. It’s beginning to morph. As we suppress the enemy in the Mideast, they are going to move. They are not going to quit,” he said.

The Senator is correct. No matter how many terror groups are defeated, the ideology of hatred that Ishmael and Esau have for Jacob (Gen. 35:10) will not end until the King of Kings returns (Isa. 63:1-3; Rev. 19:13-15).

CHRISTIANS LIVING AMID JIHADIST ACTIVITY IN MALI


August 14, eight people were killed in Mali during two separate attacks, seven at the UN mission in the ancient city of Timbuktu and one in Douenza, 130 miles to the south.

Militants who shot and killed 18 people at a restaurant in Burkina Faso’s capital the same day most likely came from Mali, a security source in Ouagadougou told the AFP news source on Wednesday. “Looking at the tactics of the assailants, their physical traits, they probably came from northern Mali or closer to the border” with Burkina Faso, an army officer said on condition of anonymity. No group has so far claimed responsibility, but Burkina Faso has witnessed a string of such attacks…. read more

Eritrea: 160 Christians Arrested in Government Crackdown

Christians in Eritrea are facing increased persecution since the government began a concerted crackdown on the Christian population in May.

In addition, some of the women’s children are with them in prison. The youngest child is reported to be only two months old.
