Protesters and supporters of the Iraqi war face off across the world as the conflict moves into its fifth year.

It was four years ago that the United States Military and its allies invaded Iraq with what the military leaders called, "shock and awe," a strategy that did bring quick results as far as defeating the Iraqi military and bringing down Saddam's wicked regime. It was after the announcement from President Bush, on the deck of an aircraft carrier, that we had won the military aspect of the war when the insurgency intensified until what some term civil war broke out in Iraq.

Now with the elected government in place and working alongside the United States military under General Patraus, there is some glimmer of hope that this war-torn Middle Eastern state can be rebuilt.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

Those who protest or support the Iraq war must look at the prophetic scenario for Iraq to know how this will all play out in the end according to Bible prophecy.

There have been successes and strategic mistakes in the Iraq war over the last four years according to all world leaders and even those in the United States Congress who totally oppose the war, the basis on which it was started, and the way to bring it to an end...soon. Several things are for sure - the man responsible for over 350,000 deaths of the Iraqi people has been removed from power, stood trial in a court of law, and executed for his crimes.

Now, the exasperating task of rebuilding this war-torn nation is under way with many pitfalls along the way. One thing is for sure, Iraq will come back to power and become the center of the world's government. I make that statement with no reservations because the Bible gives this as the scenario for Iraq which is Biblical Babylon. Revelation 13 and 18 reveal that Babylon will be the international headquarters for the antichrist, a world dictator who will lead this one-world economic, political, governmental system from a rebuilt Iraq. Jeremiah, Isaiah, and the writer of Revelation, John the apostle, all foretell the destruction of Babylon as the last event to happen before Jesus Christ returns to earth (Jeremiah 50-51, Isaiah 13-14, and Revelation 16).

Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
