JD: Ken, I want to talk about an article that you have in Front Page Magazine but first let me introduce it with this thought, the United States has just announced non nuclear sanctions on Iran. Now they said they would do it and now they’ve moved to do exactly that.
KT: Well that’s right and this followed General Flynn, the new national security advisor, on Wednesday saying, that the US was “official putting Iran on notice” because of its bad behavior, its attacks on US warships, and this latest ballistic missile test.
The US has also announced it is moving the USS Cole to patrol off the coast of Yemen. This is extremely significant given that the Cole was blown up in December of 2000 by a suicide bomber from al-Qaeda, but with support in the logistics from the Iranian regime, in the article that I just did at Front Page Mag, talking about the next steps with Iran. I outlined a series of things that the United States could do if this administration harnesses all of the power of the United States government behind a new strategy.
JD: Well Ken, for sure these sanctions are not going after the nuclear deal that was signed with Iran. But do you see in the future that may be the case as far as the Trump administration is concerned?
KT: To go after the nuclear deal per say would run a foul of a UN security council resolution. It would anger our alias in Europe But I think for the time being the administration wants to walk this fine line and to look at the ways it can tie Iran into a thousand knots; stepping up the military pressure on them in the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea off the coast of Yemen. Increasing the sanctions on them, on individuals, preventing senior Iranian officials from traveling internationally.
Another thing we could do is to increase the Persian language broadcasting from the voice of America and radio for Europe, to provide Iranians with the type of free press and accurate information that they don’t normally get from their own media. We have lots of tools Jimmy; and really the astonishing thing is why the Obama administration never used any of these.
JD: Ken Timmerman from Washington DC with the details on our lead story.
We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled.
You know the Bible says Iran is a major player in the last days, that’s Ezekiel 38:5. In that passage Persia is modern day Iran. Iran’s desire to be nuclear powered is in order for them to be able to control the entire Middle East. Iran’s eschatology also plays into the end times scenario. The threat of Iran to Israel, the United States, and in fact the entire Middle East is setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled.
