Hillary Clinton warns Iran that its time is running out

Hillary Rodham Clinton


US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made some warning comments about Iran today while she was in Saudi Arabia:

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton made clear Saturday that time is running out for diplomacy with Iran over its disputed nuclear program, saying Tehran’s “window of opportunity” for a peaceful resolution “will not remain open forever.”

She also expressed doubt about whether Iran has any intention of negotiating a solution that satisfies the U.S., Israel and other countries that believe Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons…

Clinton prodded Gulf governments to develop a coordinated defense strategy against Iranian missiles. With tensions rising in the region, she said American and Gulf militaries should cooperate to improve maritime security as well…Clinton told reporters. “It is up to Iran whether they are ready to make the right choice. … What is certain is that Iran’s window of opportunity to seek and obtain a peaceful resolution will not remain open forever.”

There are several interesting comments in the above.  The most obvious is that apparently the USA does not believe that Iran will do what the USA wants Iran to do to prevent war.

As I have been writing for a long time, since Iran is basically east, and not south, of Jerusalem, Iran will not be the final King of the South (Daniel 11:40) of biblical prophecy.  Hence, since Iran is currently is one the most important Islamic military power in the world, its influence will somehow need to be eliminated or somehow neutralized (though I suspect it will likely still support the King of the South unless it is felt that too many Arab powers were involved in its neutralization).  Trade sanctions, combined with a possible attack by Israel and/or the USA and/or internal unrest in Iran (and possibly all of those) will likely result in a change in Iran.  And according to Hillary Clinton’s comments, such military attacks seem highly viable.

Speaking of sanctions, the following was in the news also today:

CNN – ‎31 March 2012
Washington (CNN) — President Barack Obama’s Friday announcement that the U.S. will implement sanctions that could significantly cut sales of Iranian oil was not tied to a meeting the same day between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Saudi King Abdullah, a senior administration official told CNN. Numerous U.S. officials have traveled recently to Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter, to discuss the country’s ability to increase exports enough to make up for the loss of Iranian oil under the sanctions, the official said.

Whether or not the announcing of Iranian sanctions is really a coincidence is questionable.  But the fact is that the USA wants Saudi Arabia to make up any oil slack if Iran’s oil flow is slowed down or stopped.

Now getting back to Hillary Clinton, it seems that she specifically is trying to urge many of the Arab powers to pool their military resources in case they need to deal with Iran.  And while that probably is her objective, the reality is that the Bible tells of the rise of a military power called the King of the South (Daniel 11:40).

This King of the South is apparently going to be an Arab-Muslim confederation of nations in North Africa and the Middle East (Daniel 11:40-43; Psalm 83:5-7), with apparently temporary support from Turkey and some of the Gulf states (Daniel 11:41; Psalm 83:6-7).

The Obama Administration has repeatedly supported the rising power of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East and North Africa, so also encouraging coordination of the militaries of the Arab nations is consistent with that.
