This won't be the first struggling civilization to be brought down by war culture.

New evidence has emerged the Iranian government sees the current unrest in the Middle East as a signal that the Mahdi--or Islamic messiah--is about to appear.

CBN News obtained a never-before-seen video produced by the Iranian regime saying all the signs are moving into place -- and that Iran will soon help usher in the end times.

While the revolutionary movements gripping the Middle East have created uncertainty throughout the region, the video shows that the Iranian regime believes the chaos is divine proof their ultimate victory is at hand.

It's called The Coming is Near and it describes current events in the Middle East as a prelude to the arrival of the mythical twelfth Imam or Mahdi -- the messiah figure who Islamic scriptures say will lead the armies of Islam to victory over all non-Muslims in the last days.

Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Khameini, and Hassan Nasrallah, leader of Iran's terrorist proxy Hezbollah, are hailed as pivotal end times players, whose rise was predicted in Islamic scriptures.

Mideast expert Joel Rosenberg, author of The Twelfth Imam, told CBN News, "because it gives you a window into the thinking of the Iranian leadership: that they believe the time for war with Israel may be even sooner than others had imagined."

Kahlili says The Coming is Near will soon be distributed by the Iranian regime throughout the Middle East. He explained that their goal is to instigate further uprisings in Arab countries.

Oh please. We've heard this before when the USSR was a superpower. Now it is Iran (which is an also ran power). The Bible states specifically, "no one knows when I come". War is not the end of the world, merely a condition of it. War continues because humans repeatedly fail to find a less violent way to resolve differences between themselves. We prefer to embrace power and force as our ultimate solution to our differences when we don't like the prospects that might result from peaceful reconciliation. Until all sides change that dynamic conflict and war will continue. Just because the war is in the Middle East does not make it an End of Days situation.

If an unrest in the middle east is all they have got as a sign, they must have considered the reappearance of the Mhadi as imminent since the reign of Napoleon.

A CLICKING IN THE AIR - CT Whistleblower's Story

US cynicism as witnessed by Obama's shifting explanations for the Libyan military action and expansive, deadly, highly destructive military strikes in Libya will be answered by Arab autocratic regimes across the region.

Arab League offered lip service to the actions of Western nations against Libya because now they can say to their own people and the US as well, "See how we support democracy. See what good democrats we are." With the position they have taken, the Arab autocrats will be able to simultaneously hold off US/Western military actions like the the one in Libya while saying to their own people, "Didn't we support the movement toward democracy in Libyan" while repressing any similar movements in their own countries.

Obama has no rational, pragmatic, or credible explanation for joining the push by France and Britain for such military action in Libya. Any explanation he gives in his address tonight will be an exercise in imagination. I've been trying to figure out for the past several days how a mission for preventing civilian casualties got translated into the wholesale, country-wide destruction of Gadaffi's military forces. This is a totalitarian approach to whatever may have been the issue--logically and obviously if you destroy all of Gadaffi's resources, he can't put civilians in jeopardy.

I think the real reason Obama agreed to go into Libyan is that he felt the US owed the Europeans at least one foolish invasion on their behalf for their support regarding Iraq and Afghanistan.

US meddling in the M.E. has along history since WW II; almost always it has resulted in unanticipated consequences not often good for any player in the long run. The only time a US President had the guts to follow a principled, not cynical policy in the M.E. was when President Eisenhower made the British, French and Israeli's turn back from their 1957 attack and occupation of Egyptian territory. I recommend reading ROPES OF SAND--America's failure in the Middle East, the autobiographical account by Wilbur Crane Eveland, a CIA and high US government operative. It is an excellent place to get our M.E. history right from the start

Mr. Breener seems to forget Hamas and Hizbullah attacks on Isral and blames all those problems on Israel.

As for no countries being guided by Fundamentalist Islam: Iran is. Saudi Arabia is. Taliban Afghanistan was and may well be again.

Mr. Brennan implies that Israel is just plain brutal and that the palestinians are aching to have peace despite their charters, despite their suiciced bombers, despite thair uncalled-for rocket attacks on Israel.

His attitude does not help the cause of peace.

You attitude reflects Israeli talking points, not reality. That is what he is saying.
