Age of Anarchy: From Syria to Mexico, nations facing growing violence

Blogman's Notes: Many people take issue when I quote the Bible in my articles or videos but the fact of the matter is that it in only fools that can believe that there is no Higher Power in this infinite Universe, and that man, who cannot so much as control his own breath, is in control of his own destiny! I believe Biblical prophecy because I believe in the Omnipotent God from whom all prophecy originates, and because I have seen enough evidence in history of Biblical prophecies having being fulfilled exactly as prophesied. So if it was prophesied that Christ would come the first time, and He did, that He would fulfill all the things that were written so very long ago, and He did, that He would be killed but death would not be able to hold Him, that He would rise from the dead, and He did, so it is no stretch for me to believe that He will come the second time as He promised, and that the signs that would herald His Second Coming would be unmistakable, then I would be the fool if I did not look for those signs. One of the major signs of course is the disappearance of peace from the whole Earth and the rise of Anarchy on a Global scale. As the following article from the excellent website proves, Anarchy is a indeed rapidly growing on a Global level, and as bigger 'Natural' disasters overtake the world, and as severe food shortages develop, and as major wars break out, a state of ANARCHY will indeed reign that will scorch the planet from pole to pole. From the ashes of the ruins of the present world will arise the Antichrist that will promise peace and prosperity - now where have we heard that before?

Revelation 6:4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

January 24, 2012 – RUSSIA – Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, warning ethnic tensions could tear Russia apart, said on Monday he would toughen migration rules and keep a tight rein on Russia’s regions to prevent it following the Soviet Union into oblivion. In a newspaper article and an address in southern Russia, Putin used the danger of ethnic discord to call for limits on electoral reforms. “With the collapse of the country (the Soviet Union), we were on the edge — and in some regions over the edge — of civil war,” Putin wrote in Nezavisimaya Gazeta. “With great effort, with great sacrifice we were able to douse these fires. But that doesn’t mean that the problem is gone,” he wrote in the second of a series of articles promoting his leadership goals ahead of a March 4 presidential election. Putin, in power since 2000 and favored to win a six-year presidential term in March, described a Soviet-style vision of a country in which the rights of ethnic minorities would be respected but Russian language and culture would dominate. “The Russian people, the Russian culture is the glue holding together the unique fabric of this civilization,” Putin wrote. Putin is steering a fine line between Orthodox Christian ethnic Russians, some of whom fear labor migration and higher birth rates among Russia’s Muslims, and ethnic tensions which could challenge his vision of a centralized, united, Russia. Thousands of nationalists have protested in Moscow over migration and state subsidies to the mostly Muslim North Caucasus, where an Islamist insurgency rooted in the Chechen wars persists. Comparing nationalism to a disease, Putin took aim at ethnic Russian nationalists, who have been among the 59-year-old prime minister’s most vociferous critics. -Reuters 
Nigeria unraveling in violence: Fresh attacks blamed on Islamist separatists in northern Nigeria on Sunday killed nine people and damaged two churches as doctors warned as the death toll from earlier multiple bombs could rise to 250. Explosions rocked two churches in Bauchi state before dawn, destroying one and causing extensive damage to another, residents said. Both churches were empty at the time and there were no reports of casualties. In a separate attack in Bauchi state, which has been the scene of several sectarian attacks by Islamists in recent weeks, 11 people were killed and 12 injured during a raid by unknown gunmen. Bukata Zhyadi, traditional elder of a Christian ethnic group, said the victims had been found at dawn on Sunday in the town of Tafawa Balewa. “We are going around the town checking [for more],” he said. Twelve people were wounded, he said, adding that witnesses blamed the attack on a Muslim ethnic group. -Telegraph 
Drug violence MexicoMexican officials said recently almost 13,000 people died in drug violence in the first nine months of 2011, pushing the toll since the start of a five-year military crackdown above 47,000. Drug-related killings in 2011 were up 11% compared with the same period in 2010, the federal attorney general’s office said, noting it was a slower rise than in previous years. Drug-related killings rose 70 percent in 2009-2010, 63% in 2008-9 and 110% in 2007-8, a statement said. The Attorney General’s Office said 12,903 people were killed between January and September 2011, including 1,206 in the violent border city of Ciudad Juarez and almost 800 in the Pacific resort city of Acapulco. –National Post
Tensions turning Iraq into police state: Violence and political instability have escalated across Iraq since the withdrawal of American forces, as political and sectarian factions have fought for power and influence in a struggle that, within weeks, has threatened to undo the stability that allowed the pullout in the first place. The most recent turbulence came over the weekend when a Shiite governor threatened to blockade an important commercial arterial road from Baghdad to the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in the north if Kurdish officials did not hand over Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi to government authorities. The Shiite-led national government has accused Mr. Hashimi, a Sunni, of running a sectarian death squad. On Sunday, the advocacy group Human Rights Watch said the Americans had left behind a “budding police state,” with the country’s Shiite leadership increasingly ruling by force and fear. Insurgent attacks have surged across the country, and as security forces loyal to the Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, a Shiite, have pressed a campaign against Sunni politicians, arresting several in the past week.  –NY Times
