AMERICA'S MORAL DECLINE
10-1-20 -- The biggest threat facing the US today is neither from China nor Russia, but from America itself. Civilization, like tomatoes and bananas, is a perishable commodity and with an expiration date. Some civilizations stay long on the shelf, like the Roman Empire (over 1000 years). Qin Dynasty in China (15 year reign). With the west's wildfires' smoke spreading the sky turns dark slowly ... banana turns brown slowly. Empires rise and fall slowly. There is no equilibrium in crisis – once it starts, a cascading crisis becomes inevitable, unpredictable. Turning against God and His commands eventually cause destruction; look at Sodom & Gomorrah. [Genesis 19:24]
THE AMERICAN DREAM: the ideal that regardless of race, religion or social ranking, all Americans are one with equality of opportunity, allowing the highest and finest aspirations and goals to be realized. However, after 243 years, it seems the hope and aspirations and expectations of 1776 have become disillusionment and gloominess.
Many believe - because of the millions of anti-America illegal migrants that have infiltrated the country; the American dream is fast becoming a nightmare. The rioting, mayhem, hatred and shutdown causing USA's economic destruction due to the COVID-19 scare has harmed the illusion of American supremacy and exceptionalism.
"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance. The LORD looketh from heaven; He beholdeth all the sons of men. From the place of His habitation He looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth. He fashioneth their hearts alike; He considereth all their works."
There is a decline decade for every empire: Roman (466-476), British ( 1935-1945), USSR (1981-1991). Is 2020-2030 America’s decline decade? She has fallen far short of God's commands.

9-28-20, NPR -- A simmering conflict on Russia's volatile southern border is threatening to escalate into an all-out war, with the potential of drawing in NATO ally Turkey. Fighting continued for a second day in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, claimed by Armenians as well as by Azerbaijanis. Dozens of service members on both sides have been reported killed in a flare-up of violence that began Sunday morning.The ethnic Armenian majority in the region fought a bloody war of secession from Azerbaijan as the Soviet Union fell apart three decades ago. A tense cease-fire — but no lasting peace — has since kept tensions high in the Caucasus, an area where Russia, Turkey and Iran have historically competed.
Pakistan Minister Threatens India With Nuclear War
8-20-20, India.com -- Off and on, the Pakistan leadership has threatened nuclear war against India citing the logic of it not being a match in conventional warfare. India has hinted at the possibility of changing its “No First Use” policy on nuclear weapons, amid escalating tensions with Pakistan. India’s defense minister Rajnath Singh warned that while New Delhi has been carefully following its ‘no first use’ policy but that may change.
