USA urges Arab peninsula military unity: a step towards the King of the South?

Nations in the “Gulf Cooperation Council”


The United States wants increased military unity in the Arab peninsula:

May 14, 2014 7:04 AM

JEDDAH — The United States on Wednesday urged Saudi Arabia and its Gulf neighbors to unite in confronting common threats such as Iran…

“The most pressing security challenges threaten this region as a whole – and they demand a collective response,” U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said during opening remarks of a meeting of defense ministers from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). “This approach is how the region must continue to address the threats posed by Iran,” he said…

Most of the GCC’s six members – Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman – are wary of Iranian influence in the Middle East…

Saudi officials, like Western powers, suspect Iran is working to develop atomic bomb capability, which Tehran denies.

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia, May 14, 2014 – The importance of expanded cooperation in the Gulf region was the theme of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s remarks here today at the Gulf Cooperation Council defense ministerial conference…

“You will strengthen your ability to prevent and deter aggression,” the defense secretary told the ministers. “You will strengthen, not weaken, each of your nations’ sovereignty. And you will expand your common interests –- not just in defense, but in a more stable and prosperous future….No one nation can address these threats alone,” Hagel said. “Our efforts must be coordinated and complementary.”

Hagel made proposals today in several areas, each focused on this coordinated approach — including integrated missile defense, maritime security and cybersecurity… He suggested that the GCC develop a Foreign Military Sales case, which could “advance regional defense priorities by accelerating the GCC’s progress toward greater interoperability and more sophisticated multinational force development.”

It perhaps should be mentioned that the group is no longer officially named the Gulf Cooperation Council, but the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf.  It is intended to provide military and economic unity among the participating nations.  Developing a common currency (like the Euro) has been an official objective.  Several other nations which are not in the Arab peninsula, such as Morocco and Jordan, have asked to join this confederation.  Perhaps it should be added that eliminating the dependence upon the USA dollar is one of the less official objectives of the Council.

Getting to the statements made today, it is interesting to note the the US Secretary of Defense told these nations that the USA itself cannot defend them, so they need to better develop their militaries.  I suspect that this is something he has also told the Europeans on more than one occasion.  It is also likely that the Asian allies of the USA are getting the same message.

While the USA is still the country with the strongest military (Daniel 11:39), it is weakening in certain ways.  It realizes that it no longer has the finances to stay as far ahead of the rest of the world militarily (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8).

The USA is taking steps that will lead to the formation of the Arab-Turkish King of the South and European King of the North of Daniel 11.  This is something I have warned about since at least 2009.

Specifically, in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect I warned that Barack Obama will help enable the rise of a multi-national leader of an Islamic confederation that the Bible refers to as the King of the South (Chapter 8, p. 132) and that his administration would encourage the rise of a European power to the ultimate peril of the U.S.A. (Chapter 8).  This has been, and still is, happening.

The formation of these entities will not end well for the USA (Daniel 11:39; Psalm 83:4-8), the King of the South (Daniel 11:40-43), nor the King of the North (Daniel 11:44-45; Jeremiah 50:41-46).

Watch (Mark 13:37).
