Yes good reader, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is the third post in 24 hours. What can I say? I love to make up time. Speaking about eyes being deceived, the below photo is Canadian Leopard tanks on the move in Panjwaii province, Afghanistan. Go get 'em boys!
Why is 2007 not going to be a Happy New Year? As Yogi Berra once said, "It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future". In the Middle East, things are heating up and for all the wrong reasons. Lebanese Christians are divided amongst themselves as to what to do or who to support. The stark reality of famine is threatening to rout us. British banks in the U.S. are being told to stop doing business with Iran, a possible prelude to war. Friend, you don't have to afraid! God has promised for those who believe in Him a special place for the coming Kingdom of God. This is going to be humanity's Golden Age, the fulfillment of the sabbath prophecy. In plain speaking terms, I'm talking about the millenial reign of King Jesus Christ! All this bad news that you see is coming to an end, and probably a lot sooner than we think. Just pray for salvation in Jesus' name and you need not be afraid of events that are looming on the horizon.
Who said things are doom and gloom anyways? Not me! My confidence is in God's authority, not Man's majority. Speaking of majorities and such, I have a picture gallery of that Liberal convention in Montreal where Stephane Dion was crowned 'The Next Great White Hope' to unseat the Conservatives. Greg Weston of the Ottawa Sun believes that the real winner in the Liberal leadership campaign is none other than PM Stephen Harper himself. I would caution Mr. Weston on that as the Liberals have proven to be far more resilient than what anti-Liberals think. I do admit that I am most surprised by this, as I fully expected a Bob and Iggy showdown on the final ballot. Many are now saying that Mr. Dion is pure death for the Liberals in the province (not country) of Quebec. If that is true, then Mr. Weston's assessment may be bang on. I don't know how many English Canadians, especially those in Ontario, are going to take to Dion. In Alberta, it won't even be close. If the Conservatives capture 20+ seats in Ontario it will definitely be a Tory majority. Remember, you heard it here first!
Here I Come To Save The Day Dep't: Sailors of the frigate HMCS Ottawa saved a crew of 18 in the Persian Gulf. The ship, an Indian dhow headed for Somalia was lost despite the heroic efforts of our boys. Still good job all around for saving lives!
I have some news about that ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko. Apparently things are getting serious as British police are getting set to take their investigative skills to Russia. If there is a word of advice I would like to give these British cops is this: The Russians are still Russians, Cold War or no. Trust nothing you hear and only half of what you see and you might actually get somewhere. I also have this bombshell that Mr. Litvinenko might have possibly converted to Islam (!) and was possibly trying to sell a 'dirty bomb' to Islamic extremists. Wow! I'll see if I can follow this up later as it is coming only from a single source, a journalistic no-no.
