Mona and Liam, our grandson, are over in Soldotna, doing about 9-loads of laundry and picking up Susan. Susan works at a dog boarding center, which just happens to be behind Elizabeth's, our oldest daughter, bead shop. So it's a fast walk to work once she travels the 65-miles to Soldotna, from our home. Earlier, Mona and Liam were over at the Pastor's house stealing a load of wood to keep our house from freezing up. It's okay, our Pastor is spending 2 weeks in Hawaii and doesn't need it. It is amazing how much wood we use to keep this multi-level house warm.
I seem to be talkative this afternoon. After sending this out I will move over to my manuscript. I have dozens of notes to use on my new chapter. My B Company, good men and all heroes from the 101st, our now right outside the famous and lengthy Khyber Pass in Afghanistan and rumors are flying the Pakistani Army is going to invade Afghanistan and will be coming through the Khyber Pass in full Division strength. This will mean a lot of tanks and armed helicopters. Among the rumors is how the 101st will be sacrificed in an attempt to slow the enemy down as they move through the pass. To add strength to the rumor is the arrival are helicopters landing with D Company of the 101st and for now Captain Bill Warren- our main character, is still in command. Bill only outranks D Company's captain by time in service. Also orders are coming in to promote Chief Master Sergeant Henry Johnson to Warrant Officer 3. His new rank was supported by his regimental commander- a full colonel, and division commander- a recently promoted- Major General, from back in the states. Meanwhile, one of the squads stumbles upon two men, while they searched a cave. The cave was a communications center and the two men had surrendered their weapons. Ones ends up being an Iranian Army Colonel with ISIS connections and recently Taliban. The other is a one-star General from the Russian Army. A big prize for the Intel boys back at Bagram.
That's about where I am, where Bill notifies the Chief of his promotion.
I've heard that my "Arizona Rangers-Blake's War" will be out for sale in March. If the book sells, book two will be coming out once its edited.
Very soon, when I am having all my wits about me I will type out a synopsis of Blake's War for you. But right now let's move to the news.
Gatestone News: The West rejects the idea of solidary with Christians in the Middle East, as they prioritize oil interests with Syria and Kuwait. Western States of the European Union are taking in Muslim migrants from Syria and Iraq without vetting them for Jihadist ties, while leaving behind Christian and Yazidi to be victims of Jihadists, who persecute these people, accusing them for being racists and bigots. But now the Christians are becoming the main victims. Germany's government is accused of rejecting applications for asylum for Christian refugees, deporting then unfairly.
Gatestone New: President Trump recently announced a much- needed helping hand to Middle-Eastern Christians, but her is being criticized for this. But meanwhile these Christians and Yazidis are falling victim to genocide at the hands of ISIS and other Islamist fanatical groups. Reports are reaching the West that ISIS are running a massive campaign to enslave non-Muslim minorities to destroy these minorities cultural heritage and this is also being used against Christians. Torture, beheading is now shown on TV, both American and Foreign TV. One beheading was completely shown on U-Tube, where the executor needed to whacks to get the job done. ISIS is also now crucifying Christians, saying, "If you love Jesus, then die like Jesus. ISIS is also now placing bombs in toys and even teddy bears to explode as the child picks it up.
Added for the above story: A former Muslim Man, Esam of Quaraqosh, reported how his brother-in-law became a Christian and was tortured for five hours with knives in front of his wife and children. When he refused to comply, to turn away from Christ and return to Islam, he was crucified. Esam then spoke of his own wife, who was also taken by ISIS, but they were separated and Esam was later released for some unknown reason, but not his wife and he knew not where she was for a long time. He eventually learned his wife was turned into a sex-slave for ISIS soldiers.
Muslims, reportedly a major anti-Semitism factor, is shown to begin a home-front and as parents, they reportedly punish their children by calling them "Jew" for misbehaving. "Jew" is part of the reprimand' this reported by Smain Laacher - French Algerian Professor of Sociology.
This is part of the free speech in France, yet complaints are filed against everyone who's "not" saying that Muslims are the main victim of racism in France. Reportedly of France's so-called "anti-racist" organizations have joined jihad against "free-speech and against truth".
Gatestone News: Australia- According to an inquiry on institutional sex abuse, 7% of Catholic Priests in Australia between 1950 thru 2010 are accused of pedophilia, but allegations were never investigated in Australia. Some reasons were given for lack of investigations, but such would never had stood up in an American court.
Russian Herald: U.S. Military finally noticing how the Russian Pacific Fleet has awakened from it's two-decade long hibernation. "Now the Russians are getting the latest in warships, mighty submarines and revamping all its North Western Military Bases". These face Alaska and Canada, plus Denmark's Greenland and Finland. With the Bering Sea opening up, even tour ships are able to travel in the Arctic Circle, able to now reach both sides of the North American continent. Who owns what and what waters to the north still hasn't been decided, but China wants a chunk for themselves.
Thailand News- 5.7 earthquake in Columbia. No casualties reported. ( I like to show the news on earthquakes, because I have found are earth is pretty busy, but hopefully these small ones will keep a massive quake from occurring.)
Myanmar (Burma) News: Guards opened fire on a Bangladeshi fishing boat on the Naf River, which is the border between the two companies. One fisherman was killed and two others were wounded. This is the second such event. In both events the fisherman did not realize they had entered Burma's side of the river. Tension are extremely high along the border after 70,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled Burma and entered Bangladesh with stories of killings and mass rape my Burmese soldiers. Bangladesh gov't reports "some 400,000 plus Rohingya are now living in Bangladesh - most of them unregistered."
I paraphrase my news stories to make them a lot shorter, but I do put in most of the quotes. I've noticed how foreign reporters are given more space to write their articles then American reporters. I'm not sure which is better.
China's Global Times: Afghanistan- UN Assistance Mission releases a report on Civilian Casualties for 2016. This is said to be the highest number in the long Afghani war, with nearly 11,500 non-combatants with an estimated one-third being children.
Global Times: North Korea- Leader Kim Jong-in has sacked his spy chief for Abuse of Power, then executed several officials of a State Security Agency. (Unknown what happened to the spy chief.)
Global Times: West Chile- 5.2 magnitude earthquake hit. but no word of casualties. North India in the Ghazni Province a 5.8 magnitude earthquake struck. Again, no report on damage or casualties.
Washington Free Beacon: Boeing could be seeing a tax break of $60 million while selling their aircraft to Iran. This is part of deal the prior president had okayed. Under a new plan being floated by a large coalition of "Republican Lawmakers." "Iran has a long history of using commercial planes to smuggle weapons to the Middle East terrorists. (Imagine 20 Boing 747 aircraft headed for the U.S., it only takes one to carry a nuke or maybe they all do. Legal flights, but not a normal trip as the birds fly to their various targets. Or maybe it's just one headed for Washington DC. Meanwhile, North Korea, ally to Iran, waits for the first or only bomb to explode and then launches it's long range missiles.
(In my book, "A Coming Storm", I use three Chinese nuclear submarines deeply hidden in the Gulf of Mexico, who launch their barrage of only 5 and 10 kilo-ton powered nukes on 2017 Christmas morning to catch most of the US by surprise. Each of these subs were brought in by 3 massive oil tankers and dropped weeks before.The subs remain cold-no engines powered-up to keep American satellites from spotting them. The war begins then in my story.)
Global Times: Afghanistan- Ghazni Province- over 100 lives lost and a great more reported injured in heavy snow fall and freezing weather. No report on American and UN Forces being injured.
Washington Free Beacon: ISIS in the Middle East is reportedly using smugglers to pick-up unaccompanied children that were attempting to reach Europe. ISIS feeds these Asylum-seekers, treats them with food and money, and treats them extremely well before they begin training to become child-soldiers. a percentage will become suicide bombers. This story came from a think tank, one of many putting Intel Reports together from verifiable reports.
Global Times: Tibet- 5.0 earthquake, no report on casualties.
( Not sure if this is a repeat series or not)
Global Times: Nigeria- Nigerian troops arrest 3,382 suspected Boko Haram Terrorists.
Germany's Muslim population has now reached 6 million plus and reportedly has changed the face of Germany forever. German Security reports in a Intel Document leaked to a source reports they are no longer able to deal with imported security issues. ( Do we want this to happen in the United States???)
Global Times: Historian Bernard Lewis warned, in a report, if this trend continues Europe will be Islamic by the end of the 21st Century.
Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al-Banna, has stated "It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet."
The Quran begins speaking of love and understanding for a Muslim's non-Muslim neighbor. To befriend them. But in the end, the book speaks of wars and bloodshed toward the Jews and ALL non-Muslims.
(Also, in my book "A Coming Storm" I talked about a new organization in the Orient coming together, 10- countries under the leadership of China. This came about in my dreams some 19-years ago. About 10-years ago three of the countries came together, soon joined by others to eventually become 10 countries-ASEAN with a strong economic base. But I warned several others in my dreams China leads them to also become a military power and I got a lot of weird responses- until it happened. ASEAN is training their military and working with China on joint training operation. Now we learn that three of these countries- Myanmar -which is old Burma, joined with Laos and Thailand to become a joint patrol on the Mekong River. China is providing the training for the crews. New military might is being shown among the ASEAN countries. Before this happened the three countries were hated enemies. I suggest the US should keep an eye on the ASEAN, for they are becoming far more than an economic exchange for business on Wall Street.
I'm not trying to scare anyone, but I am attempting to get all of you to observe the world's happenings. Like Iran has just sealed a 100-jet deal with France's Air Bus. France and Australia just signed a submarine deal to build the world's largest diesel-electric submarine.
Meanwhile, the New Zealand Star reports on how the Salvation Army's red kettle campaign during Christmas show donations are down. But spending is up. Is this possibly the beginnings of a selfish trend. Other charities are also monitoring this trend.
Well, the 7th prophecy spoken of in the book, "A Coming Storm" is currently being worked on. You'll have to read the book. But if I haven't said already- remember I'm forgetful, the story shows the 8th prophecy concerns the arrival of the two witnesses. The 9th is the comet, which strikes in Thailand and then all out war. After China beats the Western Russian Army, the Eastern Russian Army invades the EU. China now turns its sights on Alaska, where a major battle is fought at ....Read the book.
Now I have a 1st book to this trilogy and the 3rd book, but I need people to send their desires to read the whole trilogy. Alaska Dream Publishing alaskadp.com is my publisher. If he gets some requests and maybe my bribe, he might publish the other two books. I think you'd enjoy the whole series.
That's all for now. Hope all is well for you all and God Bless the bunch of you. Send some replies, maybe an idea for a book. I'd like to help other new authors. Remember, any children's books sent to Alaska Dreams MUST have the art work included before it will be looked at. Bye!
