No less than five senior U.S. intelligence leaders recently warned the Senate that they believe another terrorist attack against the USA is “certain” within 3-6 months. This warning was reported in the Washington Times (see first link below), but I didn’t see it featured in the mainstream liberal media. However, FOX News did have a story re: this exceptional warning issued by the U.S. intelligence chiefs (see second link). All Americans need to know about this warning.
The next attack is not likely to be another 9/11 type of attack featuring the highjacking of passenger aircraft. One of the main threats is that terrorists will seek to disable critical U.S. computer systems and infrastructures via cyberattacks. I’ve done previous blogs about this very danger, but when all the top U.S. intelligence chiefs warn about this possibility, Americans need to take this warning very seriously. If such a cyberattack crippled or shut down electrical grids in the USA, immense damage would be done. Indeed, if the attack succeeded in taking electrical service off-line for an extended time over large swaths of the USA, it could devastate or destroy the U.S. economy.
The intel chiefs also warned the Senate that other “major threats” facing the USA include instability inside Pakistan, China’s military build-up, Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs and efforts by Russia, China and Iran to develop close ties with Venezuela. Notice that all of these threats involve nations that my previous blogs have identified as current or likely members of the Gog-Magog alliance that Ezekiel 38 foretold would come into existence in our latter day period of time. The accuracy of Ezekiel 38’s prophecy in identifying the alliance and roles of modern nations in the years ahead of U.S. is so uncannily-accurate that it can only be explained by the fact that the actual Creator God of the Universe inspired Ezekiel 38-39 and is knowingly shaping world events to fulfill this prophecy.
If a cyberattack against key U.S. computer systems (or some other kind of terrorist attack) does occur in the timetable predicted by the U.S. Intelligence chiefs, it will no doubt be blamed on “Al Queda,” but the actual attackers could be hackers in China, Russia and Iran who get Al Queda to take the blame. Previous blogs have identified China and Russia as major cyber-attackers so they would be logical suspects if a major cyberattack did happen. The link also cites one Intelligence chief as warning that “Malicious cyber-activity is occurring on an unprecedented scale with extraordinary sophistication.” In my viewpoint, attacks done with “extraordinary sophistication” indicate nation states are behind those attacks, not some isolated and hunted Al Queda operatives acting from some cave in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
Are you and your family prepared for such a cyberattack? Do you have a family emergency plan re: what to do in case the electricity stops suddenly, communications and electronic links shut down, cell-phone service stops, the internet shuts down, banking transactions and credit card services are halted, etc.? All these threats are serious possibilities if a cyber-attack successfully strikes the USA. U.S. Intelligence Chiefs have warned a major attack is “certain” to occur in 3-6 months, and a cyber-attack is one of the most likely options. While we hope that it will not occur and that it will be thwarted if it does happen, you need to take some preparatory actions to ensure your family’s needs are met if it does occur. A really severe cyber-attack could damage major components of our electric grids and electrical service could be down for a long time if that happens. If you have not done so yet, I urge you to read my article, “Should Christians Prepare for Future Hard Times,” available at the articles link at this website. It sets forth the biblical reasons why Christians should prepare for foreseeable dangers, and the article includes FEMA links which list many items which need to be stockpiled by every family in case of a major terrorist attack or a major disaster caused by severe weather. It is well-worth reading that list, and taking action on it. The Bible has many warnings of very severe times which will befall the nations in the “latter days” of our age. It is only a matter of time till those traumas actually happen. If you claim to be a Christian, you need to take action re: these Divinely-inspired warnings. None of us knows how much time we have left to make those preparations.
