TW on the Falkland Island Situation

The latest TW News & Prophecy has the following about the situation in the Falkland Islands:

Falklands issue heats up in South America.

Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay (a land-locked nation) have backed Argentina’s recent ban of boats carrying the Falkland flag from docking in their ports. And Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner “claimed Britain was ready to use its military to steal natural resources ‘anywhere, anyhow.'”Britain has reacted strongly to the ban, with one former Royal Navy head calling for the nuclear submarine stationed in the South Atlantic to surface from time to time and “stick up its mast to deter aggression.” The Defense Ministry has “dusted off” and is revising 2010 defense plans for the Falklands. However, many experts feel force will not be needed. Not only is Argentina not seen as a formidable threat, there are likely other ways to avoid confrontation (Mail Online, December 26, 2011).

Britain has controlled the Falkland Islands since the 1830’s and most residents want to remain under British rule. However, world pressure for Britain to relinquish its control over the Falklands is increasing.

Thousands of years ago, Isaac’s wife Rebekah was told that her descendants would “possess the gates of those who hate them” (Genesis 24:60). God’s Church has for many years understood that these gates include powerful sea gates around the globe that have long been held by the U.S. and Britain. Gibraltar and the Falklands alone remain under British control─for the time being. As Britain continues to stray from God, these gates, too, will likely be removed!

Despite British claims and statements, it seems logical to conclude that the remaining “sea gates” that the UK has such as Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands will be separated from UK control.

Notice also the following:

The Guardian – ‎Dec 29, 2011
Prophetic warnings about the dangers for British seapower were delivered to the government in the runup to the Falklands war, according to secret documents released to the National Archives.  The papers have been released amid a fresh round of deep defence cuts and shortly after Argentina imposed a ban on vessels from the Falkland Islands landing in much of South America.

And Britain is again having defense cuts.

As far as South America itself goes, it is my belief that based upon biblical prophecy that most of South America will ultimately align itself with the rising European power. And this includes Argentina.
