My previous post discussed the recently-revealed massive spying operation conducted by President Obama’s NSA (and other federal agencies). It focused mainly on the Obama administration’s spying on American citizens, but touched on wider global spying operations. These two companion links from Reuters News Service reveal the USA’s spying operations under President Obama have extended deep into the EU nations and especially into Germany.
According to the first link, the Obama administration has been tapping into a half-billion German telephone and email links in just one month! Even more disturbing is the report that the Obama administration has classified Germany as “a target similar to China.” Essentially, this infers that Obama is regarding Germany, one of America’s most important NATO allies, as an enemy nation. The German media outlet, Der Spiegel, reports that Obama’s spy agencies have classified Germany as a “third-class” partner, a dubious classification, indeed. The link also reports that the Obama administration spies on 20-60 million phone calls in Germany per day, and also spies on about 2 million data connection points in France per day. Interestingly, only the UK, Canada, Britain and New Zealand are exempt from Obama’s far-reaching spy efforts on the world’s nations. However, these are the very nations that compose the once-secret spying operation called Echelon, where the USA and the named Anglo-Saxon nations gather and share intelligence data among themselves.
The link adds the British have a spying program called Tempora which mirrors the NSA’s PRISM operation which spies, apparently, on everyone all over the globe. These spying efforts have understandably infuriated the Germans, who see the US/UK spying attacks as a throwback to the days of the Nazi Gestapo or the Communist East German Stasi Secret Police. It adds that the Obama administration’s spying on EU offices have caused “outrage” among European leaders.
The second link relates that the Obama administration’s spy agencies have “bugged European Union offices and gained access to EU internal computer networks.” A document reportedly taken by the initial whistle-blower Edward Snowden (now holed up in a Russian hotel for protection) states that the Obama administration considers the EU as a “target.” Read the rest of the second link for more information on Europe’s disgust at the Obama decisions to spy on America’s closest allies.
I think one inevitable outcome of these revelations re: the Obama administration’s massive spying on America’s closest allies is that the USA will no longer be considered trustworthy as an ally by any nation as long as Obama is president.
The deep divisions that Obama is creating between America and its global allies may hasten the fulfillment of the biblical prophecy in Revelation 17-18 that the global political/monetary system of Babylon the Great will experience a global collapse—replaced by a new global political/monetary system biblically called “the beast” system which will be installed by a cryptic entity composed of “seven heads and ten horns” (Revelation 17:9-16). Europe is now outraged at Obama and will, no doubt, be installing firewalls to keep the Obama administration from spying on European nations. Revelation 17’s prophecy reveals that 17 nations or entities will be the driving force in overthrowing the “Babylon the Great” system. Again, maybe it will prove to merely be a coincidence that there are 17 nations in the EuroZone monetary bloc. However, it may be no coincidence. The Eurozone nations now have a very strong motive to be very angry at the Babylon the Great system which is headed by the USA, the USA’s Federal Reserve Board and supported by the UK’s institutions as well.
For more on why the Bible calls the current global Babylon the Great political/monetary system by that name, please read my article, The Babylonian Origin of the Modern Banking System. If you haven’t read this article, I think you will find it very eye-opening and you will understand modern geopolitics in a new perspective.
